Jean-Pierre Isore – The most interesting man in the world?

“major” Jean-Pierre ISORE
Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, PQ

This particular group of medals was featured on our platforms over a year ago. Based on a number of posters who proclaimed that the “major” was entirely legit, we stepped back, and had another look at this individual.

Interestingly, not one person could provide proof of his legitimacy although many commentators were adamant that Mr. Isore was a high level translator, a Major in the CAF and the l’Armée Française, a senior UN civilian employee, and even the Military Advisor to UN Secretary General (a position normally held by a 3 or 4-star General).

Now, before the question is asked and/or any arguments commence, ONLY MILITARY PERSONNEL and CIVILIAN POLICE are eligible to receive UN medals…

Mister Isore was neither a military officer in a Troop Contributing Nation (TCN) nor was he a member of the UN Civil Police (UNCIVPOL).

Over the course of past 12 months, SVC has taken the opportunity to continue our research, and we came across this story “…/La-sante-mentale-des-troupes-201410031141/default.aspx” (and many others), the translated excerpt is below.

“… Isore worked for intelligence and the United Nations during his career. In 1975 in Cyprus, a mine detonated his vehicle, killing his best friend. Isore leaves the army, suffering from severe post-traumatic stress. After trying to heal himself, he later resumes service but is a victim of a relapse and will experience several suicidal episodes. “Post-traumatic stress, he insists, is not curable. We can only make it livable“.

Now here’s the issue, the French Military has never deployed their personnel to Cyprus as members of UNFICYP, and the “major’ wasn’t there as a member of the CF. This supposed incident raised a number of red flags for us.

As a result of our research combined with the information provided by a number of solid sources, SVC believes that Isore’s military and peacekeeping narrative to be a complete fabrication.

Many of our followers will know the level of detail recorded in a mine strike report & there’s absolutely no record of UN vehicle/personnel being involved in one, as he describes it, during 1975 in Cyprus. (the list of mine strikes is attached as a photo image)

“major’ JP Isore was never the victim of a mine strike in Cyprus as he never served there!

A UNFICYP member killed in a mine strike would have been front-page news, interestingly, there’s not a single mention of the event in “The Blue Beret”. *.
(*Be advised, that the BLUE BERET link is a huge time waster that will result in flashbacks of Regina Street, Keo beer, Aya Napa and brandy sours!)

Our sources @ UNHQ in New York advise that no one named Isore (using his confirmed DOB) has ever served in the United Nations Organization as a civilian employee / translator / intelligence officer…

Mr Isore has also claimed to have been a Lieutenant in the French Armoured Corps during his mandatory military service in the early 1960s. “major” Isore has no proof of this claimed service as he burned all the records / photographs as they were too painful for him to keep.

There are only two possible explanations for this situation:

Mister Jean-Pierre Isore has been the victim of a massive administrative error spanning the several decades and several continents or, his claims are a complete fabrication and he has no lawful entitlement to any of the 7 UN medals that he wears at every opportunity…

He has ignored SV-C’s offers of assistance to silence his detractors once and for all by providing independently verifiable documentation supporting his claims.

Mr Isore remains active on social media & continues to speak out on veterans issues despite his caretaker / sock puppet / nurses’s claim that he has been blocked from accessing the internet due to his physical and mental fragility.

We’ll allow you to draw your own conclusions regarding his amazing claims.

Dave MacKenzie, he’s a trucker but, he ain’t a parachuting, black ops, Intelligence Services Colonel!

We were asked to have a look at this individual’s military service claims after he posted a video rant slagging a legitimate veteran on his Face Book page – Canadian Trucking Magazine. The video rant was removed from FB however, SVC has a copy of the entire steamin’ mess!

MacKenzie accused a former military cook of being a poser as he had displayed the shoulder flashes of two of Canada’s most famous infantry Regiments (the PPCLI and The Royal Canadian Regiment) on his cut.

The cook‘s regimental brothers and sisters have absolutely no concerns with him wearing the insignia. So, why did MacKenzie take issue?

Is he deflecting any scrutiny away from his claims of service as an intelligence officer who jumped into Sarajevo, BiH in order to run black ops?

Or, is ”the Colonel“ attempting to shift attention away from the US Army jump wings that he has never qualified for?

“Little Black Devil”

“I wear what I earned”

By all accounts, Mr MacKenzie has had a most amazing life, he’s been many places & he’s done many thing however, we’ll focus, as always, on his military narrative. The question now becomes, was he actually a trained Infantryman in the Royal Winnipeg Rifles and a qualified Intelligence Operator in the Winnipeg Detachment of 6 Intelligence Company as he has claimed?

Many Police Departments / Security companies wear military style rank however, there isn’t a single police force in Canada that uses the rank of Colonel with exception of the CAF’s Military Police…

You were never a Colonel, yet you have claimed that on many occasions which caused you considerable difficulty with the US Patriot Guard Riders and several other veteran’s riding clubs in the Winnipeg area.

Wearing the badges doesn’t make one a Colonel, nice tie though…

In fact, we offered Mr MacKenzie a courtesy that he didn’t offer to a decorated veteran before initiating his vile FB Live rant against him & his military service.

SVC has been in contact with MacKenzie and provided him with an opportunity to sort this situation by him providing independently verifiable proof of his military service. Even a serial numbered Intelligence Branch coin would have worked…

It’s really quite simple, he has stated on numerous occasions that he was a senior military officer and has been photographed wearing US parachutist’s insignia on at least two occasions. Prove it!

Time to cowboy up Mr MacKenzie, either provide proof of your claims or apologize to the greater veterans community for your shitbaggery & your personal attack on a legitimate, decorated veteran.

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 ( 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…
