Military stories from past to present, both wars.

Billy Elvin Shelton; Phony Soldier

John from “This ain’t Hell, but you can see it from here” has uncovered another poser. This one hurts because he is the inspiration for Marcus Lattrell to become a Navy Seal. After pretending to have three tours under his belt in Special Forces, records show he had one in VN as a truck driver. Unless there are two Billy E. Shelton’s in the Army, these records seem to indicate that he has joined the ranks of “Posers” across the United States.
Go read this.

I’m sure you’ve read the book “Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10“, the story of Navy SEAL Marcus Lattrell and his fateful mission in Afghanistan in 2005. You might remember this passage from page 57 of the book;  You can  read the rest at “This Ain’t Hell”
