Commission Removes L.A. Judge, by Erica Werner Associated Press Writer (EXCERPT) LOS ANGELES -- A judge who falsely claimed he had once worked for the CIA in Laos and fought in Vietnam was ordered removed from the bench Wednesday. The state Commission on Judicial Performance found Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Patrick Couwenberg guilty of willful misconduct in office, conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice and improper action under the state constitution. "He lied to become a judge, elaborated on his misrepresentations for his enrobing ceremony and subsequently lied to the commission in an apparent attempt to frustrate its investigation," the commission... --------------------------- Brooke Rowe Associate Librarian The American War Library http://www.americanwarlibrary.com

My sister in-law is dating a "former Navy SEAL". He sleeps till noon, chain smokes, plays nintendo all day, hates to swim, is in poor physical shape, and reads lots of books about SEALs. I don't much care for him.

Why is it that almost every sailor you meet was a SEAL, every soldier a Ranger/D-boy/Special Forces operator and every Marine a Scout/Sniper/Force Recon bubba? Sheesh! Jarhead(the comm pogue and proud of it)out.

What kills me is that they lie to the few that know they're lying. A guy who works in my neighborhood, saw a tattoo I had, and then proceeded to tell me that he was: USMC Force recon. Somalia vet. Killed 17. Was with the 196th infantry, while there??? Served 6 years total. Was an E-8. I just smiled and said, "that's nice..."

I was a DK thats the guy who pays you on payday...back in those days we paid in cash, so when ever we hit a port I and the Postal clerk were one of the first to hit the beach, exchange dollars, etc. We got to carry shotguns when we were stateside,(en route to bank) (Earle,NJ) I kinda liked riding down those NJ back country roads in a jeep, wind in my face, Riding shotgun WITH a shotgun...and lotsa money in the back seat.

A Zero-type with a tattoo? You rebel, Sir, you ne'er do well. The PAO at MCAS Yuma while I was stationed there, had a flame-job tattooed on his calf, with yellow smilie faces on a pink background. Jarhead (the unmarked) out.

You can bet this is the only reason he was removed from the bench. And for the record. Marine aviation ground support equipment technician (I repaired aircraft tow tractors and related equipment). And basically trained killer.

"Oh yeah, I was in the Special Unit Forces Tactics Battalion Operations. Very secret, very hush-hush. I was at Quang Won, Nam Cam, Do Dang, a lotta places, lotta places. You heard of Agent Orange? Agent Orange? That was me." I love the guys that were "SEALs", but don't know what a Draeger is or their class number is, and the "Force Recon" guys who went right to Sniper School from boot camp.

Should I say this. I got out because not enough sea duty. After 4 1/2 years on the same boat they said I had go teach ashore. I got out. Miss it, too. CB Edited to say I was on the Chief's List (E7) at the time I got out after a little more than 6 years. You did go up quick in subs.

I think, that I met you, now that you mention it. I was with the "French Foreign Legion" at Bien Bien Phu. I was there as an advisor and was gathering information for the upcoming Vietnam War.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, we were doing shots of JP4 at the Pink Pussycat Club in Tu Do Street. Remember what that little crosseyed hooker with the overbite could do with a . . . hmm, never mind.

E-8 in 8 years that's nothin, I went in in '63 wasn't even born unitl '65. Basic training was so backed up I had to take it by mail. Once I finished there, a Cpl by then, I wan't to infantry school. since they were so far behind with Vietnam and all the training was 4 wks long, but it was 24/7 after we were finished they gave us a week to sleep. We were all assigned to Vietnam, there weren't enough planes to take us over so we had to go by ship. Half way over the ship was attacked by a Viet Cong submarine, they siphoned of the ships gas and stole all our porno. That hurt bad, below the belt......err, So we had to take turns we tied the anchor chain to 50 guys each, so 100 guys pulled the ship to the Philiphines to gas up. We swam in 4 hour shift, we were able to average 35 knots for 3 days. Once we got to the Philipines we got gas, and the other stuff that was stolen. Becuase the were scared our ship would be attacked again they decided to fly us the rest of the way. We were loaded on B-52's in the aft bomb bay. They only had 1 parachute for every two guys, luckily we had some bungee cord, we made it in safe and figured how to make outragous money after the war. That's right we discovered bungee jumping. The jump was awful the B-52's wouldn't go below 40,000 feet. We had to hold our breath until 10,000 feet. We deployed the 'chutes at 100 ft so the VC couldn't shoot us in the air. We were assigned to Fort Sealy-Posturpedic, which as the name says was in the heart of the fighting, and napping. I was an E-6 by now having been wounded twice. They should really put warning signs on electric barbwire, especially near the latrine. Yes that counts as enemy action, you see I was so scared..... wait where was I. One day we were on patrol, can't tell you where even the name is scary I won't get in trouble for scaring you. We found a tunnel complex It seemed awful small but I charged in anyway. Who knew cobras lived under ground. In the seconds I could keep my eyes opened there must have been 1 maybe 2. My battle scream seemed to irritate them, it went, "OMG, WTF, mommie, mommie, oh great I wet myslef, guys I'm scared and wet". Of course those chickens ran and I was killed. Damn Army wouldn't let me stay in after that.

Sorry, imposters reek. I worked for the VA and some of the biggest trouble makers who demanded priority service would tell tales of daring, and military exploits. Of course since it was the VA we had access to their service records. So many of the yelly guys enlisted falsely, got drummed out, went AWOL, or were found to have a medical problem once they were in. Most never made it through basic. And those that the military.VA knew enlisted by lying on their enlistment papers were not prosecuted for the perjury. Then since the problem was "discovered" during their military service they were discharged given a disabilty and sometimes a pension!! So many people are doing the "I was in the military lie" now it is unbelievable and they end up getting caught and paying a heavy price for the lie. Often time they really don't benefit directly from the lie. The were in the service and were honorably discharged, then they have to make up combat stories or medals they were never awarded. Of course a few hid during Vietnam and now claim to have been there.......
