Nick Sadler via Tucker Max

http://www.hoo-ah.net/archive.phtml

I realize many here do not know who Tucker Max is. He is a humorist of note and has one of the most viewed personal websites on the net. He is incredibly funny and while reading his blog I noticed another user who titled his blog "hooh-ah". Come to find out its a SF soldier who used to be a fortune 500 junior VP in NYC, and dropped everything to joing the Army for SF. Anyone who is a fan of the film "office space" will love the way his relation with his boss came to a head. Unfortunately his blog only recounts up to his first night at Ft. Benning for Basic. It is almost entirely about the months leading up to it though which is nothing short of engrossing.


p.s. In the first blog it states that Nick Sadler is a pseudonym and the story of A-Stan is only loosly based on a real experience so I dont think this violates anything sensitive. If it however does I apologize and will take down immediately.

I am confused. This guy is SF? I see nothing to show he is SF and to me it is just another Bull Shit Blogger. Please set me straight but I could not show anything to prove otherwise. Why would this be of interest here?
Help me if you can.......

I know Tucker and I know a few others that know Tucker, I'll be happy to find out who this blogger is..... and if in fact he's SF.

I've met Tucker Max...he struck me as an individual that strives to be sure a person is who they say they are, though we all know how that one situation turned out.

After reading some of the "Nick Sadler" blog it seems completely fabricated. I seriously doubt it was written by a US Army Special Forces soldier.

My Point exactly.....That is why I questioned CRod2487's reason for posting this.....unless we are going to open a section "Unbelievable stupid stuff" .

If this guy is using a SF guys name "Tucker Max" then he needs to know because a google search of that name came up with a shit load of connections of this Ass Clown.

I found an inconsistency in his little "life".

That seems like a big thing to be inconsistent about...

You have a good point. I havent investigated Tucker Max until recently but from what I read and gather he is BS artist. I thought the article had credence becuase Max does in fact, as TS said, "mingle" in the SF community. On his website he chronicles a story of a night out with two Special Operations "operators". Thinking his stories were too orginal and off the wall to make up, I took this one at face value. Is it a hoax? maybe, probably, i dont know. I have immense respect for the men of this forum and didnt mean to post this for insincere reasons. Or as a ruse to start a shitstorm. Just thought the story of how the "character" came to the Army was pretty interesting, albeit most likely not true. Again I apologize for any transgressions made and will delete if you gentlemen want.

TS, I realize you may be freinds with Max and by no means do I expect even an answer or feel you owe one but I am confused as to what the feelings of the community is towards him. He claims he has been to Bragg and been involved with SOCOM events and charities not to mention socially with a few member as you alluded. Is he a phony?

Hey CRod, this you over at the NavySEALS.com Forums?

CRod2487:
"wow its not that you know more than me. im getting my information from top operatives. where are you getting yours from? o thats right the dude you blew once. or someone in your extended family. go back to being a nurse and minding your own buisness. baer, sheuer (who bin laden mention in his last video) know more than you or your freind can ever hope to."


CRod2487:
"lady you dont even havea security clearance. your a ****in nurse. atleast im going into the military. your just a civilian. if you do know that much then your source broke their oath. this is even if that person exits. which is highly doubtfull. o and Larry Johnson debunks all of which you say of the agency and hes not a liberal. hes a registered republican who voted for Bush."

CRod2487 responding to a Navy Seal username DDSSDV:
"hey man lets exchange phone number over PM and next time your in my area we can see how much of an "internet tough guy" i am. your choice bro.

call me an ******* or a loumouth if you want. but call me coward and ill be more than happy to allow to say whatever you like to my face."

CRod2487:
"Illmaxic screw you and your constants acts of internet fellacio to SEALs. Wow so the guy is a SEAL. Well ok then next time some punk frogman acts like a deuschebag to me ill make sure not to challenge him to a breath holding contest. Your like a little kid running around with no logic behind your reasoning. While were at it lets just buy into every stereotype out there. The next asian i see ill be sure to ask for physics help. then ill go see the nearest cop and ask for a donut. the dude called me a coward. unless hes a professional kickboxer or something im going to say something like that."

I know Max. He's into MMA, maybe you should have asked him yourself. I'm sure you're on the RMMB.
