FAKE SEAL OBITUARIES
I receive constant SEAL obituaries for review and a high number of them were never SEALs. This comes from the simple fact that whoever writes your obituary writes what they know about you. If theyve been deceived all their lives about a persons service it comes out after that person dies from the surviving spouse or children. They take it to the grave
A sad fact is websites like Legacy.com and Ancestry.com simply post obituaries as fact and generations read lies told about that persons service forever.
In the attached obituary, Mr. Newman is remembered for his service in Vietnam on SEAL Team THREE but SEAL Team THREE wasnt formed until the early 1980s and hostilities ended in Vietnam in 1973. It says Mr. Newman graduated BUD/S Class 151 (SEAL Training Class) but BUD/S Class 151 didnt graduate until June, 1998; 25-years after the Vietnam War ended.
The most Purple Hearts ever awarded was Nine, and no SEAL was awarded seven as Mr. Newman obituary states. Mr. Newman is not listed in the SEAL Database as ever being a Navy SEAL.
Im sure whatever Mr. Newman did in the service was honorable but his Navy SEAL claims are not true.
