Phony Navy SEAL of the Week

So for those of you who have never heard of Don Shipley, let me have the honor of introducing a great Frogman.  Don Shipley retired after 24 years of honorable service as a SEAL Senior Chief in 2003.  He currently runs the Extreme SEAL Experience out of Chesapeake, Virginia.  In his spare time, he is known as the “hunter” of poser SEALs around the country.  Like a heat-seeking missile, Shipley pursues these imposters who have stolen the valor of those who have earned it.  Check out this video of one of his latest catches.

Retired Navy SEAL Don Shipley BUSTS Phony Navy SEAL Robert “Robbie” Robinson from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Robbie has been listed as a fraud and resigned from the VFW.
https://www.facebook.com/pages/VFW-Po…

Shipley’s letter to the VFW Post…
I was just wondering why no one at the VFW Post has questioned Robbie “Robert” Robinson’s military credentials? I just spoke to him after I was sent the pictures and he claimed his military records were “sealed” from the classified nature of his work in Vietnam as a Navy SEAL. He also claimed he changed his name which is NOT true when I began questioning why his name wasn’t listed in the SEAL Database. And he could not give me a training class number first saying it was Class 48 and then changing it to Class 4.

Not knowing your SEAL Training Class number is like not knowing your wife’s name…

It’s very clear he was never a Navy SEAL because I’m a retired SEAL and I quickly checked and found NO LISTING of him ever being a SEAL. Claiming his records are classified is complete and total B%$%#$*T. And he finally admitted he was a fraud to me after I pulled the SEAL Rug out from under him…

That SEAL Trident is worn on the wrong side of his uniform.

His awards are ALL JACKED UP and I’m surprised that at a Memorial Day celebration there wasn’t a single Purple Heart recipient present that would have asked him “Why do you have a Combat V Device on the Purple Heart you’re wearing?” That’s NOT correct…

Or asked, since you have a Silver and Bronze Star “where is your Combat Action Ribbon?”

Or asked, a Bronze Star awarded for combat, no matter what branch of service, is awarded with a “Combat V Device.” If awarded meritoriously (non combat) it contains no “V.” All subsequent awards are a Gold Star in lieu of second, third award, etc. Why does yours have a small bronze star on it? That is NOT correct.

Or asked, why is the very senior Joint Service Commendation Medal behind the lowly Coast Guard Meritorious Team Commendation Ribbon and so far out of whack in the US Military Order of Awards Precedence?

A close look at the Silver Star he’s wearing shows a distinct “hole” in the center of it meaning at some point he was claiming “two” of them and the device was removed or fell off…

Brian K Murphy was just removed as Post Commander of Post 8182 in Florida for his outrageous Navy SEAL claims I exposed… What’s in the water in Florida that you VFW guys don’t question a members credentials or claims? How do they get away with this for so long?

At this point not a single word that comes from Robinson’s mouth can be believed. 40+ years of service (he claims) and he wears 10 “RED” and not Gold Hash Marks as a Master Chief? Between that and the awards that looks like he put on in the dark I have my doubts he ever served a single day in the military. It wouldn’t EVEN be close to the first time I discovered that’s been the case…

Robinson in this video at the 3-minute mark of your Memorial Day celebration is SHAMEFUL. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqhoUX…

Earl Littman has been outed as a scam artist running a fake charity. http://thisainthell.us/blog/?p=35762

Robert Plummer of CARTHAGE NC claim’s to have been the “First Black Frogman” and he was NOT. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuclzT…

Robert Plummer served on the USS Rooks as an E-2 Engineman. He boarded the Rooks on 11 January 1952. He got off the Rook on 20 July 1953 and was discharged. The Korean War ended 7 days later. The Rook served in Korea with Plummer but Plummer was NEVER in UDT.

Plummer’s despicable claim is for political gain and delusions of grandeur trying to equate himself with Carl Brashear, the Navy’s first Black Navy Master Diver and the inequality Master Chief Brashear faced and made famous in the movie “Men of Honor.”

The fact is that Naval Special Warfare has NEVER been segregated like much of the US Military during WWII and a number of Black Frogmen served in WWII.

Naval Special Warfare, Underwater Demolition and modern day SEAL Teams, have always welcomed any man of any race into our ranks as long as that man could do the job…

Anyone needing a Navy SEAL claim verified should send a good spelling of that person’s name to

This dude Daniel A Bernath wrote to me and said he is scaired that he will be murdered or his clients will be murdered by Don Shipley and the warriors Don Shipley has trained.That he wants youtube to stop posting his videos of Don Shipley going after fake Navy SEAL's That he thinks Don Shipley is responsible for the self murder of some dude.That youtube and Don Shipley are responsible for perhaps the murder of a bunch of fakes as I understand it.And Blah Blah this and that and that Daniel A. Bernath is a attorney at law.He said Don Shipley is harrasing people via the phone across state lines.Whatever.All I know is Don Shipley was a SEAL Senior Chief and served his country honorably for 24 years.That Daniel A Bernath was mot a SEAL and never graduated BUDs training.That Daniel A. Bernath is a fake.Also I don't believe Don Shipley would try to kill any of the fakes as he is a honorable man and he wouldn't waste his time doing that.Though if a fake commits suicide on his own that's the fakes business.I believe Don Shipley wants just one thing for the fakes to stop calling themselves SEAL's and stealing valor and to just say to Don Shipley that your a fake and apologize.That you will stop calling yourself a SEAL if your not one.

i have attended memorial day services over the years and have never questioned anyone about the medals they wear.  i take them at their word.  SEALs i have seen are SEALs, not imposters.  they aren't wearing anything that identifies them as SEALs.  sealed information in federal court because it's classified occurred with osama bin laden and the numerous defendants listed with him beginning 7/28/09.  the information was sealed and vaulted.

I outed a fake Seal here in Nebraska named Walter Kenney with Don Shipley's help. He goes by the name or alias Vince Raven, Bruce Anthony Raven, Walter Bruce Kenney, Brian Kenney. He has a facebook page under Vince Raven . He has been running around in NE Nebraska telling everyone he was a SEal Team 6 sniper, attending retirement events, and even giving out Seal Team 6 Challenge Coins on their behalf. Their MC club (SOAMC) contacted me and asked me to let up or I was "going to get him killed" ??? The story is that he changed his name after "outing" his Team in Iraq after they "stole" money and now he is under protection and they want to kill him...What an ASSHAT. I believe he is running not from other SEALS but from the Law. I need help in taking this guy down.

please see photo below  He now is in the Sons of Armegeddon MC and after many months of me chasing him down he admitted he was a fake in a handwritten apology. If anyone knows if this individual has warrants or info please contact me. He evidently moved from Warrenton Missouri. Note the Seal Tattoo and Trident he wears without earning. He is under investigation from the local PD and State Patrol in Nebraska. Lets take this guy down.

Don Shipley is very cool and his work identifying fake Navy SEAL's is outstanding.Also the school he operates extreme seal experience looks like a great place to go and train for fun.Though I have to give him a slight hard time on one thing.That fake hair piece he wears.It moves around in a different place every video he makes.It's like Joe Pesci's hair piece in JFK the blonde one that moved all over his head,LOL.I want to go do the pistol course he has at his school.The first phase.So I better be quiet or he will get upset and not let me in.LOL.

Was there such a thing as Navy Sniper? He was in 69 to 70. Doesn't claim to be a Seal. In my time of service I never heard of just a sniper , all snipers were Seals.

I got a guy saying he made it thru SEAL team BUDs school but then rang out a week before graduation because of "personal" problems.  His name is a one Stewart Pitka, he's been telling stories saying he is basically a SEAL minus one week to everyone that will listen to his BS. Do you have the resources to get to the bottom of this Mr. Shipley?  Inquiring minds who are tired of being lied to would like to know. Thanks buddy.

Indeed, several of the followers of Don Shipley have said they are going to kill me:

The plan is set in motion. Meeting planned for Monday to deal with this problem. Discussions will be taking place and planned for a final solution to the problem within the month. All I have to do is be patient and it will all go away, soon.http://thisainthell.us/blog/?p=43926my post yesterday was to make the little monkeysucker go nuts before retreating to his basement

I wish I had more time to dedicate to curb-stomping these douchetools,

Half of the airplane is looking at me …Guess where I’m going, Bernath????”

We know for sure that Don Shipley with his misuse of YouTube participated in the self murder of Ike Densmore.He has scores, if not hundreds of tormenting veterans posted on YouTube and until further investigation we cannot say for certainty if Don Shipley and YouTube have murdered one, or one hundred veterans.Such facts shall be uncovered in civil discovery.

Therefore, Notice of this Misuse of YouTube and request is made that following your own guidelines, you remove each and every video that you host where Shipley has illegally investigated a person and then tormented him by telephone across state lines and thereafter posted the results of his illegal private investigation on YouTube.

Request is made that the misuse of YouTube as advertising of Don Shipley’s training camp for potential Muslim assassins for the sleeper cells within the United States be removed from YouTube as well.Our national defense is at stake here and we don’t need a domestic Virginia Extreme Seal Experience to train assassins for United States sleeper cells such as the kind that caused so much human misery in France and elsewhere.

Also, please remove the two “snuff” videos which Shipley states are just “humor” where he is encouraging the violent men he has trained in killing people which he has posted within the last month.

If I am indeed murdered, or if one of my clients is murdered because of YouTubes hosting of these snuff movies-urging people to kill me or my clients, you can now be assured that YouTube/Google and whomever I can name personally in the lawsuit, will be sued for negligence in the victims murder by your hosting of these snuff films and produce of the illegal investigative misconduct of Don Shipley.

How many sleeper cell murderers have been trained by Don Shipley, knowingly or unknowingly?

@JCAmram Now, on the approach plates, you can see yourself flying across the plate!
This is called "geo-referencing”, and lets you see how you are doing on the approach... not bad!
As well, IF you have turned on the NEXRAD weather option in the settings, and you have an ADS-B receiver,
then you will see NEXRAD overlaid on the approach plate as well, which is really a pretty amazing thing.
So now, on your approach plate, you can see yourself and the weather overlaid over the plate.
This is the type of thing was impossible to even hope for just a few years ago!

Now, the TAWS warnings will not come on if you stay within the hoops!
The hoops have already been cleared for use without terrain or obstacle intersection, so, as long as you stay within them, you should not have the screen cluttered with any TAWS alerts. We can do this because we do not need to give you warnings about terrain and obstacles ahead if you are flying a path that will ultimately avoid them!

We now have considerably improved heading response and deduced reckoning when the GPS signal is lost.
Especially if you do not have an ADS-B receiver, you can lose the GPS signal when you bank the plane sometimes,
so this is especially nice to have. It really makes the App respond more quickly and reliably to heading and attitude changes,
which actually makes seat of the pants-- a good bit easier to fly!

When practicing in X-Plane, now you hand-fly the airplane through the hoops, unlike some previous versions which might have done it by autopilot.
This is just better for practice in X-Plane.

@ruffneckzrus12 I was dating one of his buddies when he went to BUDS. He was actually married.  He went to school and was cheating on his wife, and he quit a few weeks into the training. He never became a SEAL and should never brag about being even close to becoming one. Sounds like he has low self-esteem and is a real loser.

@ruffneckzrus12 I briefly dated Stewart Pitka and he constantly talked about being a Navy Seal, etc.  I was skeptical about his stories and if he was really a SEAL.  I noticed very early on major red flags, he was willing and wanting to talk to ANYONE about his SEAL experiences.  Anyways, I dumped him way before I could get to the bottom of his lies.  I highly doubt he was ever a SEAL and hope he is exposed for the lier that he is!!!
