Earl Woolery III – Gulf War 1 Fake

Earl Woolery who claims that he served in the first Gulf War as a Cavalry Scout.

He was, in fact, a Staff Sergeant serving in an amored cavalry unit however, he didn’t deploy on any phase of Desert Shield / Desert Storm, as Lincoln, Nebraska wasn’t threatened by Saddam Hussein.

Thanks to our partners at This Ain’t Hell (http://thisainthell.us/blog/) we were able to confirm Mr Wollery’s actual status during GW1.

Aside from the Meritorious Service Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Southwest Asia Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, the two Liberation of Kuwait Medals and the extra OLCs… what’s the problem?

He must have been using some skookum optics / sensors as Lincoln, Nebraska was 7000 miles from the berm!

There’s much more to this fella’s story, we’ll just focus on the medallic fuckery™…

Byron S Rodriguez – He never visited Ellen’s Bar but, he had his nose amputated!

Former Master Corporal Byron s. Rodriguez (BRod/Lord Byron)

BRod was legitimately in Afghanistan twice with the Canadian Army, but as is usually the case, that wasn’t enough. Rodriguez claims that he was there three times. He claims that he was a paratrooper, but there is no record of him attending the training or serving in the Canadian Airborne Regiment, but he has the tattoo and t shirt, so it’s legit, eh?

Rodriguez was awarded the “Sacrifice Medal” (analogous to the Purple Heart for our US friends) because someone threw a rock towards his vehicle and hit him in the face, he used his own hands to reset his nose. He insisted on carrying on with the mission and delayed his medical treatment for five hours to allow other soldiers to be brought to safety while he standing in a pile of smoking’ brass cases and disintegrating links behind his gun.

When he did get medical attention, the attending medic used a computer to learn how to stitch his nose back together, Rodriguez said.

“Lord” Byron says he, had his nose “ampuated”, received a Gun Shot Wound to his leg, and contracted Taliban “cooties” which rendered him unemployable in medical laboratories!

He has also claimed to be a member of the Spanish Royal Family, is a multi-millionaire, attended UCLA on a baskeball scholarship, owns a luxury yacht, earned a Phd in Psychology, represented Canada as an Olympic athlete.

Not surprisingly, and mirroring what occurs with some regularity in the US, he has surfaced as the Vice President of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 70 in North Battleford, Saskatchewan.

The significant holes in his military records could be due to a series of long overlooked, administrative errors or, you can come to your own conclusion. However, his weak apology, and willingly coughing up the unearned medals and insignia has convinced us that he’s just another lying sack of shit!


Sacrifice Medal – Legitimately awarded,
General Campaign Star (South West Asia) with 1 rotation bar – Legit,
Canadian Peace Keeping Service Medal – No entitlement
United Nations Force in Cyprus Medal – No entitlement
Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal – Legit
Canadian Forces Decoration – Legit
Wound Stripe – No record
Claims service in Bosnia – No record
Claims service in Cyprus – No record

Qualified Military Parachutist – No record
Member of the Canadian Airborne Regiment – No record but, he has the tattoos!
Qualified CQB instructor – No record.

Mr Rodriguez was contacted by SVC and given the opportunity to surrender the bogus items and apologize. A representative of SVC took the pictured items into his possession and arranged for their disposal by the authorities in Ottawa.

James Wellheiser – “Dances with shit nickels”

Wellheiser was confronted about his medallic fakery on 23rd of January 2017 by a small group of legitimate veterans/war fighters. He quietly surrendered the self awarded US/RVN medals and insignia for disposal by an appropriate authority…

Curtis Jack ROUSH – SVC?, “they’re probably right…”

We were asked to have a look at Mr. Roush’s military service claims after a photograph of him was published in a local newspaper in November 2016.

So, after some solid research, we have confirmed that Roush was never Awarded the Navy Cross as he claimed when he joined the RCL nor, is he the recipient of the Navy and Marine Corps Medal and the Purple Heart.

It’s somewhat difficult to be wounded in action and rescue shipmates after a Viet-Cong combat swimmer attack on a Riverine Navy support ship when you are a reservist in the US and 9000 miles from the incident!

https://www.niagarathisweek.com/news-story/7018926-smithville-legion-vp-remorseful/

“They’re probably right,” Roush said when asked about allegations he wore the Navy’s Purple Heart and U.S. Navy and Marine Corps Medals, despite not earning them.


“It’s something I deeply regret,” he said. “There are a lot of people there (at the Legion) that I respect.”

Lest We Forget Indeed!

Ashley ZEDNER – Bogus Vietnam / Cyprus vet

Stolen Valour Canada received a number of inquiries based on photos of him wearing Canadian Medals and both Canadian and US parachutist insignia.

Through the use of open source research including websites, newspaper articles, photographic images, searchable data bases of medal recipients and extracts from online military documents in Canada, SVC has found Zedner has made the following claims.

*Joined the Army in 1968,

*He was as a “Gunnery Sergeant” in the US Army in Vietnam where he was wounded in action,

*Claims to have been an Infantryman with 1st Bn The RCR, his 11 years of service included a tour with the “Peace Corp” in Cyprus,

*Was a fully qualified parachutist and proudly wears Canadian and US jump wings along with military free fall / HALO wings,

*He appears to forgotten his Canadian Peace Keeping Service Medal which would logically accompany the UNFICYP Medal,

*There is no evidence of a Purple Heart Medal despite his public claims, and

*Zedner also wears he the ubiquitous Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal without being on the list of recipients (GG.ca)…

Prior to investing any research effort into what could become an unfounded wild goose chase, we contacted Mr Zedner, on 2 November 2017, in order to provide him with an opportunity to sort out the reported situation.

What we have learned:

*Zedner was in his school’s audio-visual club in 1968, making it quite difficult to be in the US Army as he has claimed!

*He is NOT a US Army combat wounded veteran,

*He never served in Vietnam,

He was an Infantryman in a Toronto based Royal Regiment of Canada in the 1970s,

*He was never trained as a parachutist on either side of the border,

*He has no entitlement to the Eight Pointed Star of The RCR,

*He has no lawful entitlement to the UNFICYP Medal nor the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal.

Through an intermediary, ex Corporal / Mr Ashley William ZEDNER has now surrendered the medals and insignia that he wore without lawful authority (11 Jan 2018). The surrendered items include a maroon beret, RCR hat badge, US and Canadian parachutist wings, Military Free-fall / HALO wings and the UN Forces in Cyprus Medal.

Arrangements will be made to have the items disposed of in an appropriate manner.

He did not surrender the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal.

 

Unfinished Business!

 

 

Remember this poser who self identified as a war criminal? 

 

 

Daniel Howard WHITESELL
Windsor, Ontario

 

Whitesell said that “his team would enter the villages in the middle of the night, and that if a teenager or child, the same age as the students he was speaking to had seen him, that he had to silence them by any means necessary to avoid giving up their position, alluding to the fact that he had killed innocent children during his service.”

http://stolenvalour.ca/index.php/2018/12/16/daniel-howard-whitesell-is-he-a-special-forces-cwo-rsm-or-a-navy-reserve-bin-rat/  

In a series of  emails, which we have not responded to, Whitesell has demanded that we remove the posts which detailed his medallic fuckery™ while portraying himself to be a highly decorated special forces operator. He has also threatened SVC with legal action and he’s now engaged a lawyer and will initiate a 400 Thousand dollar lawsuit against us. Apparently, Whitesell holds the belief that we are harassing him by not removing the documentary evidence of his bogus military service from our social media platforms…

So, how did we become aware of his shameful tales of murdering innocent children in the performance of his duties?

*Where did he believe the photographic evidence of his military themed fairytales that are showcased on our platforms originated?

*Did he think that his bogus persec / persec demands directed at 600 school kids would be followed?

SVC has supporters in every region of the country and they share our approach of separating posers, fakes and embellishers from their their bogus medals, uniforms, insignia and lies. 

The “RSM’s” shadow box of shameful stories…Who’s picture has he used to pump his tires?

Although the plaque is difficult to read in the image; the “RSM” makes a number of interesting claims!

What we do know, Whitesell was never member of the former Canadian Forces Medical Service now Royal Canadian Medical Service or the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry. He has never served in Canadian Special Operations Force Command and he certainly wasn’t a member of the Clan of the Big Badges! 

 

Whitesell attempted to purchase a replica medals group from a reputable medal mounting service claiming that he had sent his originals to the National War Museum. The company declined his business…

However, Whitesell’s limited service in the Navy Reserves should have taught him that honesty & integrity are critical personal attributes of a professional service member. However, his willingness to stand in the blood of our wounded and fallen for personal financial gain indicates that he knows absolutely nothing of what it takes to be soldier!

Perhaps, Whitesell should provide proof that the 150 dollar honorarium he received for his Remembrance Day performance was donated to “the children’s hospital” as he has claimed?

His reprehensible conduct has insulted the dedicated service and incredible sacrifices made by every member of the CAF and their families. 

And, for that there is a consequence…

SVC will provide former Ordinary Seaman Daniel Howard WHITESELL of Windsor, Ontario an opportunity to take full ownership of this situation and publicly apologize, via our platforms, for his reprehensible actions. He knows how to contact us…

Lest We Forget

Peter PASANEN – Not a wounded Vietnam hero, just a Deserter…

Mister Peter (Pekka Tapio) PASANEN of Burnaby, BC

Pasanen was a member of both the 1st and 2nd Bns of the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry and a Cold War veteran who earned the Special Service Medal (NATO) for service in Europe. He was also a member of the Seaforth Highlanders, a Vancouver based reserve infantry unit.

As a Private in the PPCLI

Pasanen 1966, Canadian Forces (Europe)

Then one day, he makes the decision to embellish his career narrative & claim Vietnam service with the US Army. Although, he’s technically a US Army “Veteran” he’s a deserter and has no lawful entitlement to the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart & the Combat Infantry Badge…

We contacted Mr Pasanen, during the Summer of 2017, in order to provide him with an opportunity to sort to the situation reading his Vietnam claims. He told us via email that he had been drafted by the United States, he went AWOL from Fort Ord,CA, received a Less than Honourable Discharge and wore the US medals, less the National Defense Service Medal, and basic parachutist wings without lawful authority.

Given his claim of being drafted by the US, SVC then asked our US counterparts at This Ain’t Hell (www.thisainthell.us) for their expert assistance in securing Pasanen’s US Army records under a Freedom of Information Access request.

The records tell that Pasanen was less than truthful with us.

Mr Pasanen had legitimate military service in the Canadian Army during the Cold War, that’s something in which he should have taken great pride.

Pasanen was “legitimately” awarded the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal however, his name was misspelled as PARSANEN on the GG’s web site…

 

Now, it’s time for him to heed the advice of General Douglas McArthur and just fade away…
