Gordon “Steve” Lang – US Navy SEAL Sniper, SEAL Team 3, BUD/S Class 192, Blog of Shame78
08/29/2019 by militaryphonies
Gordon Stuart Lang, who prefers ‘Steve Lang,’ comes to us from Lehigh Acres, Florida but is originally from Rhode Island. Lang is 50 years old as of August 2019.
Just to cut down on confusion, Lang claims he was both in the U.S. Marine Corps and claims he was a Navy SEAL.
First, his Facebook profile page which claims Military Intelligence with an MOS of 0321. The Navy calls them NECs and the Marine Corps refers to them as MOS. MOS 0321 is a Recon Marine.
Lang posted a photo that he labeled “2nd Battalion Force Recon Iraq” but they are Army Delta Force / Navy SEAL uniforms – hard to tell with the resolution. Not sure if the implication that it was his unit or if he was in the photo.
He also posts that although his time in the Marine Corps was short – 3 years – he was awarded the Navy Cross. This valor award is second only to the Medal of Honor. He claims he was awarded this by the President. Bill Clinton is pictured in the below photo.
Lang also claimed he was a Scott [sic] sniper for 12 years. Probably meant a Scout Sniper. This is what they referred to them in the Marine Corps, but since he was only in the USMC for 3 years, he probably meant the US Navy as a Scout Sniper. Later, this was confirmed as to what he meant. A sniper in the U.S. Navy, presumably as a SEAL since he claimed to be in the U.S. Navy for 15 years.
He became upset when someone questioned his military service…
During a lengthy Facebook discussion, Lang made some claims to being in SEAL Team 3, was called out and responded.

ACTIONS CONDUCTED BY MILITARY PHONIES
We discovered that Steve Lang’s name is actually Gordon Stuart Lang but he seems to prefer to go by “Steve Lang.”
After contacting the UDT/SEAL archives and checking the UDT/SEAL database we found that there is NO record of “Gordon Stuart Lang” or “Steve / Steven / Stephen Lang” ever completing BUD/S Training or assigned to any SEAL teams.
Gordon Stuart Lang’s military records were ordered through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. The name “Steve Lang” was also accounted for in the FOIA request.
. . . . .
The DoD Manpower Data Center database was searched every year from late 1984 when Lang would have been 16 to present day with the same result – no dates for active duty in any service came up. Sometimes this database has trouble with Reserve activation to active duty and/or very short enlistments. For instance – boot camp active duty and then the individual returned to a drilling reserve status.
DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY (DoN)
NATIONAL PERSONNEL RECORDS CENTER (NPRC)
There were several others (i.e. Uttering Forgery (1992), Grand Theft (1992), the below are just a sampling.
. . . . .
DISCUSSION and SUMMARY
Steve / Gordon Lang has no record of going to BUD/S and no assignment with a SEAL Team over his career. There is also no listing of a SEAL NEC in his records. In fact, there are not Navy records they could locate.
He served in the National Guard with only a few months of that as active duty.
There is no record of Lang serving in the Marine Corps. NPRC would have picked that up. For the length of time he claimed – 15 years in the Navy, there would not be an opportunity.
The Department of the Navy could not locate any record on his to prove that he even served with them.
There is no record supporting his claim of being a Scout Sniper – Navy or Marine Corps.
There is no record of Lang being awarded a Navy Cross.
Lang’s official military records do not support most all of his claims of Marine Corps and Navy SEAL.
If the claims by Gordon / Steve Lang were used to leverage work, military or civilian promotions, or anything else of value, Lang may be in violation of Stolen Valor laws. State laws may also apply.

WRONG Facebook page
Steve lang…..piece of shit like anyone else claiming to serve in the military who hasnt
What’s up rich, this is real deal field. I agree.
When I was in college there was a guy that claimed to be on furlow from the 1st Gulf War where he had killed 100s and had his hands on Saddam Hussein but was ordered not to kill him by President Bush and then Hussein was broke out of jail by his praetorian guard or whatever they were later. He was completely crazy and despite we all let him have it everyday for his lies he just got further into the delusion. The fool some Vietnam bling on his “uniform” from a yard sale or something I guess or an Uncle and he said there was a secret war currently being fought in Vietnam and he got the medals there. Some of these folks just need to be exposed so people don’t fall prey to them but like any nutjob they may not change their ways. If they were able to steal something then prosecute.
Since he ‘claims’ a Navy Cross can’t something be done in regards to prosecution because if just that ?
Oh boy Oh boy Oh boy and goody goody goody goody. Thank you lying embellishing POS Gordon Stewart Lang/ aka Steve Lang. Been a minute since the troops of TAH have had a lying embellishing self centered egotistical POS wanna be marinesealnavyreconmisniper to chew on! Can’t wait for this one to hit over there! Lying Lester Kent Brown (stain) has needed someone else to take the heat off, and it’s your turn in the barrel. Coulda been proud of being a cannon cocker. Not everybody can shoot the big gun. Coulda been proud of being a vehicle operator. Lots of folks can’t drive. But noooooooo Gordon Stewart Lang (coulda been proud of that name also)/ aka Steve Lang, you had to try and claim something you never did. Hope for your sake your medical training gave you some proctology courses; you a fixin’ to need them. We gonna ream you a new one sonny boy. While your Dad was rockin’ with the band, you were a rockin’ with the lies. That pretty wife of yours is gonna wonder what else you’ve lied about. Hope she gets custody of the cats in the upcoming divorce; she sure ain’t gonna want your pu$$y a$$ no more. Google fame, like the innerwebz, is forever! Bend over…Bitch
Damn, the wife threatened me with the lawyer..I said SUE ME…
Damn, the wife threatened me with the lawyer..I said SUE ME…
Lang took his Facebook page down. That didn’t take long.
Not before I contacted his wife and friends. Claimed he was hacked so I sent his friend screenshots.
Something doesn’t add up on his FOIAstuff. He served 8 years in the Guard and was discharged as a PVT (E-1). I’m assuming the low rank was due to his felony convictions while serving. Yet the 2-1 states he was honorably discharged. A screw up by a clerk maybe?
Many of the Guards of the several states have no legal infrastructure to support a court-martial process (trial defense service, prosecuting attorneys, etc). Punitive discharges can only be issued by conviction and sentence of a CM. The Guard in my home state hasn’t held a CM since WWII.
The image of his purported unit on his Facebook page, originally appeared on on National Geographic in an article “Inside the Green Berets,” and showed up on the web in 11.2009, and again on their site in 10.2013 and 03.2016. It is not him.
The link is in archives, although you can probably google the link to see the image referenced in the link.
(If you guys need help on this or others in the future–shoot me an email)
Thank you so much. We saw multiple references to it, just never could pinpoint which one was the source for first use.

Typical example of “roid rage”. This guy is a danger to everyone he is around, especially if that someone is in an intimate relationship with him; this POS exemplifies the term “danger close”. Award of the Navy Cross, awarded by slick willie, certainly cheapens that award — kinda like barack huseine obama (misspelling intentional) being award the nobel piece prize (misspelling intentional). All three of these POSs should be made to wear boxing gloves to bed at night.
Given his felony convictions, have to wonder if he possesses any firearms?
If he does, or his wife does and he is in the same domicile, it’s a violation of 18 USC 922 (g) (1). He has to have done 366 days in jail though, for that to be effective.
They way I understood that (I am no lawyer) is that if you are convicted of a crime that is PUNISHABLE by a term exceeding a year then you can’t possess or live in a home with firearms. Ex: You are arrested for stealing a car. Go to court and you’re looking at let’s say 2 to 10 years. You plead or are found guilty and you do 8 months of your sentence and get out. No firearms for you because the crime in which you were convicted carries a sentence of a term exceeding one year. Again I am no lawyer and do correct me if I am wrong.
Convicted felon can’t own a firearm but that’s in California. .
What can you expect from a guy who has cheek implants? 😫😫😫
What a dough boy mug. If that’s not a walking fucktard i don’t know what is. Let Shipley introduce himself to this aberrant impostor of a man.
Seals are not allowed to have fb accounts. I am not a seal or ever claim to be but I do know a REAL seal and they are not permitted to use fb.. so anyone on fb claiming to be a “seal” is lying.
Why are we as Americans so damn obsessed with being someone else. AMORAL assbucket
Sycophantic supplication and bull. I am proud of those warriors who are seals. But I’m a land man be proud and stop looking for a station beyond your reach
This guy suffers from inferiority complex, coupled with an eccessive need for attention 😢
It’s not all of, “we as Americans”, some of us actually did sign that bottom line for our DD-214’s. Who would have ever thought all you have to do is copy one off the internet and print it out at your home computer?
That’s hilarious! He wants to dug-out the Air Force, and we don’t even know if he was a cub scout….lmao!!! Thanks to those who “narc’d” this crook!!!
If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it must be a pile of 💩💩💩 , scumbag
Thank you for exposing these cowards
What do people get out of being a military warrior fraud! The needs to be jailed along with other fraud asses!
Lmao at his spelling. He can’t even do your / you’re “i am bullshit” no truer words were spoken.
If you can’t get your MOS right then you shouldn’t even have a Facebook page.
Super glad that this guy got caught!
It’s a shame that this man felt like he had to do that because in his place a lot of people have died in situations and fought for our country with pride and it’s just a shame that it would make up such a story but I need a lot of people in fantasy world it’s just to make up a story like that you know they live in Fantasyland
What a piece of shit..this asshat will now be mocked and laughed at .. especially if he’s in any kind of construction,,,hope he falls on a nail!!
Typical phony nobody strutting at the expense of real military women and men pretending to be a bad-assed hero. Real heroes don’t flap their jaws, just thrilled to still being alive. Thanks for outing this piece of crap.
Combat medic wounded Nam vet
humbly awarded bronze w/V and Purple Heart….no hero. My heroes are those who gave all for the rest of us…ALL WARS!
This guy makes me sick how can anybody sleep at night with good conscience I’ve had something similar happen to me just recently God bless our troops and God damn the liars
THIS lying POS needs a BLANKET PARTY
Very sad. Why steal something others earned the hard way, and those that were there who probably have real PTSD. Lang is another troubled soul searching for his place in this world. You, Steve, went about it the wrong way. Stop living through others lives and live your own, that way you may one day find true happiness.
Scary thing is there are so much more out there that have more knowledge and better stories than this douchecanoe. I do think laws need to be upheld for these poser ass douchepools. Hope he gets what’s coming…
Pathetic. My husband served 24 years in the US Army and was a member of the 12th Special Forces. It is a disgrace when someone claims to be something they aren’t, especially when it comes to stolen valor. You wouldn’t know my husband served his country with honor. He never talks about it, EVER. Bragging and lying. Disgusting.
what a waste of skin! Even I as a knuckle-dragging bosn mate, son, and brother of retired Navy veterans wouldn’t fold garbage like that. ZpF nothing / corporal / Sergeant / scout better hope I never find him! the guys I went through school with have over 60 cruises and tours the lands of bad things in the last 30 years.
That photo labeled 2nd Battalion force Recon Iraq – is actually from an ABC news report/documentary which I think aired some time back called “Inside the Green Berets”… lol
Appears as though his head is about to pop from steroid abuse. Creepiest red-eye shot ever. Looks like Bluto from Popeye only without the apish charm. IQ of an empty Bic lighter apparent from online activity. When they coined the term “Insufferable Douchebag” this is what they were thinking of. Looking forward to the payback fun they are having at his expense at TAH. Keep up the great work!
This guy is an insult to every man and women who actually served. He should be in jail
Here’s the REAL, “STEVE LANG, U.S.M.C.”
Here’s the REAL Steve Lang, USM!
This less than a child is in violation of stolen valor and should be arrested immediately. His current job application listed false information. So please fire him immediately. I’m a veteran of the navy 0000/8489/ atd airman graduate.85.Glakes.illi
He doesn’t work
at Experienced Escrow and Title and his wife took down the site.
A lying POS who couldn’t make it in the Boy Scouts much less the military.
USMC G 2/9 3rdMarDiv RVN 1968-1969
USMC MAU MACV RVN 1972-1973
He would’ve looked great in a green Girl Scouts dress. Like spear with a stem as a head..
Wow this Lang guy is an idiot. He’s a pussy. You can’t tell me the world wouldn’t be a better place without his existence. Or let a real soldier about half his size wear his head out a capture it on video and post it everywhere and maybe just maybe he will take his on self out.
Did he disrespect the US Air Force?
Fuck him and his momma!
Someone stick a pin into this bloated individual and let out some insecure macho vanity. Damn shame for an individual to try to steal/share honor of those who achieved that level legitimately. I’m no hero…USN/RVN IV corps 1970-71 proud to have served with real men and women who know the sacrifices made.
So I used to date this guy about 20 years ago. I was young and dumb and he lied to me so much. Found out his name was Gordon months later. We even lived together for a short time. And he totally does have rhoid rage. I’m not sure how his wife copes with it. He’s a pathological liar and he needs help. You would think by the age of 50 you wouldn’t need to hide behind a phony life. Makes me sad for him. Totally hooked on Growth Hormone too if you couldn’t tell.
Please share more
Listen bitch he has never lied to me ever. He doesn’t do growth hormone. He is incredible husband and I am so much better looking than you. I model and he probably lied to you because he didn’t care about you. He told me everything so I know everything about him. He takes care of his body and never drinks. He has never ever yelled at me.
Deleting all Facebook pages and having YOU speak for him says IT ALL…
IF he was a Navy Seal he wouldn’t be hiding behind a gullible women…
But he did about being a Navy Seal, Sniper, Navy Cross. YOU both shut down Facebook so did you rock the lie too?
I know Steve and he is not like this woman said. He does not use growth hormone because I lived with him for 4 years. He was a true gentleman always opening my car door. He never told me anything that you are saying about him. I have seen his heart and he is a good man. Funny thing is I was with him 20 years ago. He left me for another woman but we are still friends to this day. It was wrong what he did but he doesn’t tell people anything like that. I seen him train a woman for nothing because she was very obsessed and had medical problems. He worked with her for over a year for free. I am very professional woman and work the night shift at the hospital. I know his wife and he treats her like a queen and told her everything about him. They have a incredible marriage and he loves her so much. I was mad at Steve because he left me for another woman but he explained that he didn’t have the same feelings I had for him. You guys are trashing a very good man who did make a mistake. I will be talking to him today about why he said that. Steve has a heart of gold and will do anything for anyone.
Okay Steve–I mean, “Kimberly”.
You should tell the lying shitstain to come here and tell the truth…
Hi Gordon. Yes, you were a gentlemen, but a liar.
I never said he wasn’t a nice guy. He is sweet. But he has problems being his own person. He had a “Marketing Degree” when I dated him. I found his rhoids, so you can’t lie to me. When I tried to get him to come clean, he just continued to lie. And then when I broke things off with him, he went nucking futz.
And this “bitch” doesn’t give a flip what you look like. If you’re with him, that makes you naive or just as nuts as him.
You are right I told you lie. I didn’t know how to tell you the truth at the time. I always wanted to tell you I was sorry about everything. I didn’t wreck the apartment because I started drinking and yes steroids probably didn’t help. I am not that person anymore but I do have problems because I hate my dad. I am lot nicer now than I was with you. My wife is incredible and my best friend. She knows about everything including what I did to the apartment. I wanted her to know about my past. You never loved me and your mom was crazy. I never hit you or anything else. I even told her that I keyed your car because I was mad. You told me why did you move out South Carolina so you had some kind of feelings for me. I think part of our problem was money but I have no problem now. My dad died but I haven’t touch any of it. I still owe my school 45k right now. I am trying to get it cut in half because I am going to have to pay someday. Ashley I said I was sorry and mean it. I didn’t treat you very good. I never did anything nice for you. I am sorry what I did to the apartment and your car.
I am coming forward I only said it to one person and it got out. I did lie but I am truly sorry to everyone that I hurt. Ashley I lied to you because i was older and wasn’t happy with my life so i made up things. The one I never lied to you was I loved you very much and wanted to tell you but it got so deep. All my friends up north lie to girls and my bestfriend taunt me this. I don’t even know why I did this so I am sorry to everyone. I told my wife everything. She is not covering for me. When we met I knew that I had to be truthful with her because I felt something strong. I made it up because the truth was I grew up with money but my dad was a drunk and lied to woman to get them in bed. I wanted to be a Marine like father was but my scores weren’t high enough to get in. I went into the National Guards because that’s all I could get. I am good person and worked my ass of at school. I met Amy when I was in school and trying to get done. I am hiding behind anything Kimberly is a good friend and I told her because I tell her everything about me and Amy. If I could take it back I would but Ashley I really did loved you and I don’t take HGH at all. It was easier to make up a story then to tell that my dad beat the shit out of me everytime he was drunk. He put me in the hospital a couple times busted me head open so I was ashamed of my past. Sorry for all the problems I caused for everyone.
My wife knows the truth about everything what happened to me as a kid. I moved out when I was 14 years old left my poor sister with that monster. He never hit anyone but me my sister would hide in the corner and cry. The truth is sick and I am not going to get into it. My dad died a while back and i didn’t go to his funeral. I hated him and wanted to hurt him like he did to me. I took martial arts to learn how to defend myself against my dad. My poor sister is still mess up to this day and hasn’t been out of her home in three years now. I need to really see someone because I shouldn’t hate anyone like I do towards my father. Ashley i laid in bed trying to figure out how to tell you everything but my ex wanted me to be unhappy so she called you. I wasn’t a gentleman to you I never took you anywhere or bought you flowers. I am sorry that I took you for granted and when we broke up and I moved to Florida. I hated woman and used them for sex. I didn’t care about anyone. Then I hurt Kim and she was a good girl. I am shocked that we are still friends today. I am not going to share what happened to me after I left my father at age 14 but it was hell. Please look up my dad because he never talk about what he did in the Marines Gordon S Lang JR. May 2 1942. Thank you
You joined the National Guard because you wasn’t smart enough to be a Marine? Your BS never stops Lang. This isn’t an apology. It’s a ramble of excuses trying to make people have pity on you. If it wasn’t for this exposure, your lies would continue on.
I am apologizing and I couldn’t be a Marine because you can’t have a GED. Your wrong and I am not looking for pity at all. Yes I probably would have kept it up. It was wrong and I meant the apology. I started looking at fake stuff on YouTube and it made me sick. The only good thing came out of this is I finally got to tell my ex the truth. I don’t want your pity there was no excuse to do this. I am done I have a great life and will never do something so stupid like that again
ASSHOLE, on behalf of a real hero from R.I. SSGT JAMES M RAY still not recovered from Vietnam, KISS MY ASS YOU PIECE OF WORTHLESS SHIT.
HE did earn a SILVER STAR and two PURPLE HEARTS. GOOGLE him.
I have a GED. USMC 94/98
What a crock of BULLSHIT. Still hiding behind lies and a gullible women who obviously has low self esteem.
Re-read your own post…
First of all what are you talking about. I am sending this to you nice. My wife doesn’t have any low anything. She is extremely beautiful and models. You want to talk to me I have no problem. I am not hiding behind anyone.
Deleting all Facebook pages, blocking friends who called you OUT, a pity party apology and coming here a week later days WEAK, FAKE, LIAR..
There is nothing to say that will fix this. I made a mistake and I am truly sorry. Why would I be even doing this if I wasn’t upset with myself. You want talk on phone send me your number and we can talk. I have major respect for all who went overseas. I can’t imagine it and I have friends who were over in Iraq. People I met in my gym.
Wear a sign on Veterans Day, Memorial Dayand Sept 20th POW-MIA REMEMBERANCE DAY that says I’M A LIAR I STOLE VALOR from those who gave all…
Give me a address…
I’ll send you two quarters and you can call someone who gives a shit about the fake apology…
You’re a famous internet PHONY Marine Sniper/Navy Seal
