He’s no Gunny Highway.


He claims to have been a “US Navy Master Chief” was observed participating in a Remembrance Day event in Westmount / Montreal on 5 November 2023 while wearing a US Marine Corps Master Sergeant’s uniform.

His incredible group of medals / insignia and his slovenly dress caught the attention of a number of individuals and they contacted us with their concerns. 

The personal awards that Mr WEST, the name he provided to the Remembrance Day organizers, was photographed wearing include the Navy Cross, US Navy’s second highest award for heroism in combat and the Airforce Cross, the USAF’s second highest award for heroism in combat along with the Silver Star, the United States 3rd highest award for heroism in combat. 

Also in mix, the Navy and Marine Corps Medal is the Navy’s highest award for bravery in a non combat situation. This medal was  awarded to former US President Lt John F Kennedy for his actions after the sinking of PT 109 and US Navy SEAL Senior Chief Don Shipley for heroism during a search and rescue mission and US Navy Master Chief Carl Brashear for recovering a lost nuclear weapon. 

These high level awards prompted us to take a deeper dive into his claims. He’s also wearing the Bronze Star awarded for valour / meritorious service and the Purple Heart indicating he was wounded in action.

We searched the US DoDs data bases of Navy Cross and Air Force Cross recipients including those of the Viet Nam War era, amazingly, no one named West / Greyfeather / Oneinjun is listed…



So, the questions now become, is West / Greyfeather / Oneinjun a lying sack of shit, a stolen valourist or a military fantasist?

Or, is he a victim of a decades old administrative error in which files were not updated / lost? 

SVC is prepared to assist this individual in determining his truth…

This image, from Springhill, Nova Scotia, doesn’t meet our criteria for stolen valour.
Mounting an “army cadet long service medal” alongside medals awarded by the Crown is a protocol issue although, the dog tags are a nice touch…
Please stop sending us this pic!

Mr Kerr claims to be a steely eyed, snake eatin’ killer killer from the skies who served in 10 Special Forces Group. He’s awarded himself the Combat Infantry, Combat Medic and Combat Action Badges along with the Silver Star Medal and the Soldier’s Medal. He’ll flash ya a SF challenge coin as “proof” of his service if questioned on his claims…
Dude, just stop!

Mr Marty Gow of Toronto Ontario
Tells amazing tales of his service with the Parachute Regiment in Northern Ireland and Down South in the Falklands. According to our Brit partners at Stolen Valour UK, none of them are true…
On his now scrubbed FB page, there were several images that Marty claimed to be featured in, we now know that they are random pics from the interwebs including a screen grab from the movie “Bloody Sunday”.
There’s no evidence of the South Atlantic Medal but, there’s a truck load of bling mixed in with what appears to be the General Service Medal and a Long Service & Good Conduct medal.
Of course, the “Queen‘s Sapphire Jubilee Medal” is always an interesting addition to one’s medallic fuckery. May 2019.
