Carlo Dobrich – U.S. Navy SEAL, Veteran, Blog of Shame

Carlo Domenico Dobrich comes to us from Chelsea, Vermont but has lived in Delaware, Maryland and New Hampshire.  Dobrich is 51 years old at the time of this writing – March 2021.  Dobrich often goes by the nickname “Hawk” and sometimes by “Smokejumper.”  His middle initials are sometimes listed as “M” and “C.”

Dobrich claims to be a veteran of the USN.

He repeats the claim of being a veteran when talking about a hearing loss, but we are not certain if this is a claim of a service-connected disability.

Although it was reported that Dobrich claimed he was a Navy SEAL, we did not have any public statements from him in that regard.  However, “Hawk” was reported to have worn a Navy SEAL Trident to an Early American-themed event in combination with a legacy U.S. Navy sailor uniform.

Dobrich rose through the ranks to become the Post Commander of his American Legion post.

There was some suspicion as to whether he served or not, so Military Phony came into the picture.

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

Carlo Dobrich’s military records were ordered through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. The dates of service in the USN were claimed to be 1989-1998.

Due to his age and claim of service dates, we filed with the Department of the Navy which maintains records from the mid 1990s-present.

The Department of the Navy responded with the following letter.

Dept of the Navy – FOIA Response – Carlo Dobrich – pg1

Dept of the Navy – FOIA Response – Carlo Dobrich – pg2

Dept of the Navy – FOIA Response – Carlo Dobrich – pg3

To account for earlier service, the DoD Manpower Data Center / SCRA database was searched.  The years Jan 1986 to present-day were searched with no results found for each year.  The years searched encompassed all of the dates of service claimed.

Below represents a sample null result from 1991, when Dobrich would have been 22.

We were able to find out why he goes by the nickname “Smokejumper.”  [NOTE: This article appears to have gotten his age wrong by 10 years – at that time he was 47 y/o vs. the 37 y/o reported.]

The following court case centered around misrepresentation, so Dobrich entered documents into evidence as proof of his claims.  The only problem is they undermined his claims of being in the service several of the years in question.  The case did not appear to address claims of military service, however.


. . . . .


There is no record of Carlo Dobrich attending BUD/S-SEAL training and no record of him serving with a SEAL Team.

The Department of the Navy official response shows that they could not locate records on him.  Being IN the U.S. Navy is a prerequisite for becoming a Navy SEAL.

Although we cannot independently verify this – we are told that Dobrich was removed from his post at the American Legion and had his membership revoked because he could not produce a DD-214.

If Dobrich has used false claims to gain anything of value – he may be in violation of the Stolen Valor Act.

    Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!!!! Two (2) phony wanna be Navy SEALs in one (1) week! And it’s only Monday. Isn’t life great! At least the embellishing POS Donald Wayne Lidy had a chance to apply to become a SEAL. The lying, criminal, sex offender POS Carlo Domenico Dobrich never even tried to join the Navy. Or, maybe, he tried and the recruiter recognized him to be a lying, possible sex offending POS and saved that spot for a more worthy person. Hey Smokejumper, you gonna have more than smoke blowed up your orifice by your mess mates on the Good Ship PITA Prison. Bubba, Thor, Julio, and “Mr. Tiny” don’t think too much of sex offenders. You may become offended by the sex you’re gonna get. I hope you enjoy your new menu selection from their deli. They specialize in man meat sammiches (the kind with the special sauce), tossed salads, and Creame d’ Sumyunguy Soup. Saddest part is don’t don’t even make a decent poser. No doo rag, no shades, no support dog, and you ride a Cam Am? Bwaahahahahahahahahaha Maybe if you hadn’t of had your head up your ass for most of your life, you wouldn’t have a hearing problem. Welcome to the inherwebz…Lying BITCH!

    A Wanna’ be and a Registered Sex Offender to boot ! I hope that this is made known everywhere and especially in VT.

    Sadly, another individual claiming to be one of our Elite Navy Seals. Bad enough that he didn’t even serve in the Military. Trying to be something you are not is even more demeaning to a person’s character. As a Chaplain with the DAV, I Pray that Mr. Dobrich is given the opportunity to apologize for his false claims, and be forgiven by so doing. Chaplain William.

  4. […] folks at Military Phony send us their work on Carlo Domenico Dobrich.    Dobrich often goes by the nickname “Hawk” […]

    He calls himself “smoke jumper” because he claims to be a helicopter qualified fire fighter volunteer. He used that claim in court as part of his character statement. He also mentioned being an Eagle Scout. Surprisingly, his military service was not mentioned in court.
