Michaels works in the film industry as a Hollywood make-up artist, having worked on popular television shows and films such as S.W.A.T., Taken 2 and Taken 3 (Liam Neeson), Valkyrie (Tom Cruise) , Seven Pounds (Will Smith), Va, Purple Heart (William Sadler), JAG, Rush Hour (Jackie Chan), and The Big Lebowski (Jeff Bridges).

There have been newspaper articles that refer to Michaels as a “field medic” but this could be a reference to a Hollywood set medic vs. implying anything with the military.

However, the above articles may refer to his time before his Hollywood careet.

The below claims that Michaels makes leave little room for doubt since he claims to be a Vietnam veteran as wells as going to Basic Underwater Demolition which is a pre-requisit prior to serving on a SEAL team.

Some people were skeptical and asked Military Phony to look into these claims.

After contacting the UDT/SEAL archives and checking the UDT/SEAL database we found that there is NO record of “Myke Ivan Michaels” or any other variation of his name ever completing BUD/S Training or assigned to any SEAL teams.

Myke Ivan Michaels’ military records were ordered through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

The National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) could not locate a military record on Myke Michaels. If he had served, the NPRC would have held any of his military records.


If the claims by Myke Michaels were used to leverage work, military or civilian promotions, or anything else of value, he may be in violation of Stolen Valor laws. State laws may also apply.

    Mikey, Mikey, MIkey… If it weren’t so obvious, it wouldn’t be so pathetic.

    Okay, MIKEY – the last SEAL platoon LEFT Vietnam in 1971. The last SEAL advisers left in March 1973, So, Mikey, just WHERE were you and what were you doing? The troops had already left in 1973, so just WHERE were you and WHAT were you doing? Were you warming bar stool in Tommy’s Bar on TuDo Street?

    My guess is that Mikey was busy protesting the draft all that time, not participating in anything other than finding as many hippie chicks as he could and smoking dope at the drive-ins.

    Well, well, well, Myke Ivan Michaels aka Maysen Michaels, phony SEAL, phony Vietnam Combat Vet, but real live lying, asinine, scum sucking POS. You think your Hollywood fame was a big deal, well, here you go asshole, welcome to your new found Google Fame. Won’t be too long before the comments from the troops at TAH overwhelm anything about your Hollywoodness. Guess since you work in an industry filled with fakery that you could get away with standing in the blood and on the bodies of true Warriors. You don’t even make a good fake seal (sic) Bitch. Where’s your doo rag, mirrored shades, phony seal (sic) tats? No Service Dog, no photo shopped war pics, no POW claims, no “buddy died in my arms”. You have the PTSD all right, Pure Turd Sucking Dipshit. May you rot in Hell as Satan devours your worthless soul.

    I think he got “Went to BUD/S” mixed up with “Smoked some BUDS”.

    “Studied BUD/S at US Navy Senior Enlisted Academy. Class of 1973…”
    65 years old as of December 2019…
    Durn…US Navy Senior Enlisted Academy is for E8/E9’s (any branch).
    Mighty young to have gone there…
    But maybe he was a stellar performer with rapid promotions…(once per month…)

    MMCM(SW) US Navy Senior Enlisted Academy 1988.

    The only SEAL he’s seen is one at the zoo that eats fish.

    Why would anyone feel the need to lie about who & what they are just to bluster on social media. Way to throw away your personal honor for nothing and take a steaming crap on those who served. Not just anyone either, but Navy SEALs.

    Kick him off your next movie project, Mr. Film Producer, or you are enabling this assclownery.

    Any guesses as to why his chin pelt has a reverse skunk stripe?
    Maybe as a testament to his prowess with Clairol…..or it is a stain from the copious amounts of bilious shit he spews on a recurring basis to impress his fellow HW gal pals.

  9. Doc911 says:

    He is a fuking hair stylist! Nothing else! He needs a visit from a real SEAL.

  10. David Bailey says:

    The first class at the Senior Enlisted Academy was 1981.
    Opening ceremonies held on September 14, 1981, marked the beginning of an educational program which is unique among the Navy’s many training schools and programs. On that day, the Navy’s Senior Enlisted Academy opened its doors to its first class.
