Part 1 James Hoskins Phony Navy SEAL

Mr. Shipley, thank you for taking my request to verify what I believe to be a fake Navy SEAL.  This guy is posting on Facebook and I am sure other websites saying he was a Navy SEAL and was discharged after a HALO jump gone wrong and is now on disability from it.  He then apparently went to work for Blackwater.

His Name:  James Hoskins
Hometown:  Brookville, Ohio
Current Town:  Minster, Ohio
Age:  Mid 30’s (I believe he graduated from high school in 96)
Phone number (posted on facebook) 937-710-3008
Business Phone: 419-628-6015
Facebook page:
He is the President/CEO of Hoskins International LLC out of Minster Ohio

I greatly appreciate your interest in upholding the honor of the US Navy SEAL Teams, and your search for the TRUTH. Before answering your questions I must make clear that I am a private individual, not affiliated with the US Dept. of Defense or any other government organization. My efforts to expose SEAL imposters are performed as a service to the public, and in honor of my fallen SEAL Teammates... men who truly earned the right to the title "US NAVY SEAL" but who are no longer able to stand forward in defense of their honor, their reputations, and their TEAMs.

If the name you provided is spelled correctly, I do NOT find a listing in the SEAL Database (SEAL Teams, Underwater Demolition Teams and predecessor units from 1943 to the Present Day) for anyone named JAMES HOSKINS. I have also examined possible alternate spellings, and names with similar pronunciations without finding any that appear to be applicable.

Unless he has undertaken the unlikely action of a legal name change (an action for which there would be evidence in the form of court documentation) since his claimed participation in SEAL training, and based upon the information you have provided, I can state conclusively that JAMES HOSKINS NEVER COMPLETED SEAL TRAINING, and he is not now, nor was he ever a Navy SEAL or a Navy Underwater Demolition Team member.

Countless SEAL Imposters show proof of their SEAL claims in the form of SEAL Insignia (Tridents), SEAL Coins, SEAL Award Citations, and SEAL Training Graduation certificates which are unfortunately all available on-line. Numerous others get SEAL Tattoos, Photoshop their faces on SEAL Pictures and alter actual Military Discharge Papers to show SEAL service.

Many SEAL imposters when confronted with the information I have provided will resort to claiming that their records are sealed, burned or their SEAL Operations were classified as Secret and that there are no official records of them. Before any classified operations may be undertaken as a SEAL Operator, a man must first successfully complete the Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) Training program and then the follow-on secondary training program. The names of all those who successfully graduate from that training program sequence are compiled in the SEAL database. Later participation in classified operations has "NO IMPACT" on whether or not a person is listed as a graduate of the training program.

There are records of every man who has qualified for the title of "SEAL"; there have been and will continue to be secret missions, but there are NO secret SEALs.

While unnecessary, you may want additional confirmation of my findings regarding Mr. JAMES HOSKINS /s lack of SEAL credentials. To do so contact the Public Affairs Office at the NAVAL SPECIAL WARFARE COMMAND in Coronado, California by telephoning (619) 537-1133 or an email to

Thank you again for your concern in this matter, and for your assistance in upholding the honor of the US Navy SEAL Teams. If I can be of any further assistance to you in this matter, please contact me at your convenience.

Respectfully, Don Shipley BUD/S 131, SEAL Team ONE, SEAL Team TWO.




I LOVE the cat! That is awesome, the best thing I ever saw on the video-seriously. #SemperSquid



This is the kind of guy who, if you told him the sky was blue, would insist that it is purple with green polka dots. I am not sure if he actually believes this or is lying. If he believes this stuff, he has some major mental issues and needs to be hospitalized.

What in gods name is wrong with this marshmallow ass? U gotta have some seriously advanced mental problems to just keep lying n keep lying n keep lying. Woulda been epic if Don called Navel Special Warfare with lumpy on 3way and got someone there to say that he wasnt a SEAL.
