Dept of Navy Records show that he attended BUD/S . But never completed the training. He is NOT a Navy SEAL

Reply from SCPO , Don Shipley;

It kinda sucks because they blacked out his report and transfer dates. But looking closely, on Page 0010 he attended Boot Camp in San Diego and then reported for BUD/S training.
The next entry on page 0011 is the USS Samuel Gompers after he failed/quit/got hurt in BUD/S. It says he was "retired" as an E-3 after less than 4-years. He was medically retired for something... Could have been a bar fight, car wreck... Anything, but he was never a SEAL
Like SO MANY of these phonies, he attempted BUD/S and failed...
Please remind the requester that he didn't believe the SEAL claims in the first place and he was correct.

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

First inquiry regarding JOYCE was forwarded to me on 17 Sep 2010.
I responded with a NOT UDT NOT SEAL message on 18 Sep 2010.
I received a forwarded response from the inquirer on 20 Sep 2010.
I received a PDF of the JOYCE records summary from NPRC on11 Nov 2010
I responded on 11 Nov 2010, observing that the man had been transferred directly from BUD/S to the USS SAMUEL GOMPERS out of San Francisco, and that the transfer was a clear indication that he had not successfully completed BUD/S. I noted that the archivist at NPRC had gotten a bit overzealous and blacked out the DATE of that transfer (which was not normal).
I did NOT note (although I probably should have done so) that the annotation of BUD/S TRAINING as "Military Education" was a bit unusual... but since it appears to be the ONLY schooling he received, then that is probably the reason the archivist chose to note it in that particular category. Otherwise the attachments seemed remarkably BLANK and sparse. Only the TEMDUINS (Temporary Duty Under Instruction) entry for BUD/S (notable in that such an assignment to BUD/S is normally a PERMANENT CHANGE OF STATION and not TEMPORARY). I might also note that the summary lists him as RETIRED though he only shows FIVE (5) yrs total service with only TWO AND ONE HALF (2.5) being served on ACTIVE DUTY.
JOYCE was separated from the NAVAL RESERVE PERSONNEL CENTER, NEW ORLEANS, LA... but no date for that is provided. There is also no entry in the scant extracts regarding when he might have left active duty and where he went after that.

The N.P.R.C. has no record of him ever serving.

I greatly appreciate your interest in upholding the honor of 

the US Navy SEAL Teams, and your search for the TRUTH. 

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 SALATHIEL MARTINEZ 

JOHNSON. 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 SALATHIEL 


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


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.

When discovering that a person was never a SEAL, many 

people would like know what that person actually did in the 

military or did he serve at all. For a FOIA (Freedom of 

Information Act) request of that person’s military service you

should contact and provide the necessary information.

A $20 donation will cover the cost. Please inform Fake 

Warriors that I have already verified the SEAL claim when

contacting them.

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,
