Reason adorns his Facebook page with SEAL-related imagery.

When people associate the Facebook images on his page and him as a SEAL, Reason confirms their assumptions.

Here is a post where Reason makes a direct claim of going to BUD/S and SEAL Qualification Training (SQT).

With a simple image search, it was discovered that the above photograph was associated with Operation Ocean Shield from 2009-2016, many years after Dane Reason got out of the Navy.

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 “Dane Paul Reason” or any other variation of his name ever completing BUD/S Training or assigned to any SEAL teams during the time he was in the Navy.

. . . . .

Dane Paul Reason’s military records were ordered through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

Dane Reason’s official military records from the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) do not support many of his claims.


Dane Reason was in the MS rating. That stands for Mess Specialist (cook). He got out of the Navy as a MS3, which is an E-4.


The official military records do not support Reason having the SEAL Trident or parachute jump wings.


Reason’s records show no training as a Navy SEAL nor any duty assignments as a Navy SEAL. A good deal of Reason’s time was spent aboard the USS John F. Kennedy (CV-67).

As mentioned before, Dane Reason was not found listed in the BUD/S-SEAL database when it was checked.

. . . . .


If the claims by Dane Reason 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 in regard to Stolen Valor.

    Another fake seal (sic) to add to the pile of embellishing POSes. Way to go Dippy. Dane Paul Reason, on paper, had what could have been considered honorable service to be proud of but decided to take a great big steaming dump on it. Oh…wait…there was a cook that became a SEAL or was it a SEAL that became a cook? Made a motion picture about it didn’t they? Was that you Dane? Did that give you a Reason to lie about and embellish your service Dane Paul Reason? A dead fish left in the boat in the heat doesn’t reek to high Heaven as bad as your story. And your Biblical reference…Moses? Really? Isn’t he the one that brought that tablet down from on high with the admonishment that “Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness.” In layman’s terms Dane Paul Reason that means don’t be a liar like Dane Paul Reason.

    Welcome to Google Fame…Bitch! The Troops of TAH are gonna have a large time chewing on your lying, embellishing sorry azz. Embrace the suck home tater, yesterday was your last easy day to lie. Fakebook going “poof” in…

  2. WHAT A POS !!!

  3. Bruce Revelle says:

    Maybe he served on Meal Team Six.

  4. Guys look past the Seal claims; WHY COULDNT HE FIND A WAY TO MAKE E5 IN TEN YEARS?

    • 5th/77th FA says:

      Low speed, high drag maybe? Been a lying POS all of his life? Constantly screwed up the mid rats, you know, couldn’t open a fresh loaf of bread and lay out some cold cuts? Never got the bug juice mixed properly? All of the above?

      IMHO making it to E5 during that time frame was very doable. Show up and do your job. Seems like he only did about half of that.

      • I agree with you. I was hoping someone like him could have found a better purpose in his life after the military. I struggle to be the person I am supposed to but I never claim to be something I wasnt.

    Simple career synopsis for this widening anal fissure:

    1) Boot camp
    2) Sent to JFK as a Fireman Apprentice (engineering type)
    3) Completes sea tour and goes to MS “A” School. Re-enlists for 4 yrs. while there.
    4) Goes to Norfolk to work in mess hall and is discharged 2y 8mo later.

    Total Active Service: 5 yr 11mo 19 dy if my math is good (89Apr24 – 96Apr05)

    NARA 13164 appears to be in error showing 10 years.

    I smell a shitbag that got booted… Did not have enough time for HYT to explain early sep.

    I would love to see if he has any Page 7’s (Court Memorandums) in his record.

      I have an older brother who failed basic training twice. 1977. They gave him a section 8. And he brags today about his social promotion to his infantry unit in ft steward ga. I punched his lights out. These two must have eaten the same turd

    MEAL, SEAL, kind of the same thing. M and S only off by 3 inches on the keyboard, right?

  8. Kno Body says:

    When I was an 18A on joint SOF assignments I used to razz SEAL’s I served with: “Thank God for you Navy SEALs otherwise most of the posers would be pretending to be SF guys!”

  9. William Retired "Buck Sergeant." says:

    Never could understand why a Soldier, Sailor, Airmen, or Marine, can’t be happy with just completing their service, be proud of their accomplishment, and share their True stories with their Fellow Comrades. I ended up doing 22 years total, and was forced to retire in the Army National Guard along with 13 years active duty. I retired in 1998 at 44. I am now 66, and have been drawing my Military Retirement for 6 years. Dane, Just Be Real, and Apologize.
