Private Nathan Phillips Went AWOL, Not from Vietnam, Never Went There, He’s a Criminal Too


Retired Navy SEAL Don Shipley shared Nathan Phillips’ (a/k/a Nathan Stanard) DD-214, which he’d acquired through a FOIA request. Shipley discusses its contents in the video below.

Nathaniel Phillips enlisted under Nathaniel Richard Stanard, an “adopted” name, according to the DD-214, but his birth name was Nathaniel Phillips. He enlisted in the Marine Corps Reserves, serving from 1972 to 1976. The deceitful man never left the United States during his service in Lincoln, NE, and El Toro, CA, and was discharged as a private.

He went AWOL three times and never went overseas, including no travel to Vietnam. Phillips usually says he’s a Vietnam-era or Viet times veteran to mislead and boost his credentials. CNN claimed he said he is a Vietnam veteran, but it’s because he mumbled the word ‘times’, which is an unusual way to describe service unless one is exaggerating.

He was not honorably discharged, just ‘discharged’ as a private. It is not easy to get out as a private.

Phillips claimed to be a Recon Ranger but was actually a refrigerator mechanic. There is a world of difference between the two.


Retired Navy SEAL Don Shipley pulled his military records:


Native activist Nathan Phillips accused students of racism before. He is also accused of being an alcoholic who was “thrown in and out of jail” for an extended period of time.

Nathan Phillips, née Nathaniel Stanard, 63, wants Nick Sandmann, high school good kid, to face expulsion for failing to “accept any responsibility” or apologize to him publicly. As we now know, Phillips and the crazy hate group Hebrew Israelites were solely responsible for the encounter in D.C.

Nathan Phillips, who grew up in a nice middle-class home, committed numerous crimes in the service including underage drinking, assault and escaping from a penal complex when he was 19. That is according to local news reports at the time from his hometown of Lincoln, Neb.

Phillips, who was 19 at the time, was “charged with escaping from the Nebraska Penal Complex where he was confined May 3,” according to a May 9, 1974, article in the Lincoln Star. The court approved a bond of $500 and set a preliminary hearing for May 14.

He pleaded guilty to assault on June 19, 1974, and was fined $200. In addition, he was charged with underage possession of alcohol in 1972, 1973, and 1975, as well as negligent driving.

A destruction of property charge against him was dropped in August 1973, but Phillips was sentenced to one-year probation for a related charge of alcohol possession by a minor. In December 1978, he was charged with driving without a license.

Phillips racked up three criminal charges in 2004, including for not having mandatory insurance on his car, and was using his activist organization to try to raise funds for his trip to Washington, D.C., where he confronted the MAGA hat-wearing Catholic teens from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky.

Big League reports that Phillips was charged on March 9, 2004, in Mohave, Arizona for driving at a speed greater than reasonable or prudent, and for failure to produce evidence of financial responsibility. He was then charged with No Mandatory Insurance on July 4, 2004. On all three charges, the disposition is recorded as “Failure To Appear.”


He and 20 of his buddies disrupted a sacred Mass in D.C. the next day.

The Catholic News Agency reported Tuesday, citing unnamed sources, that the group of about 20 activists sought to enter the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception on Saturday during its 5:15 p.m. Vigil Mass.

“It was really upsetting,” a shrine security guard on duty during the Mass told CNA. “There were about twenty people trying to get in, we had to lock the doors and everything.”

“A source close to the shrine’s leadership corroborated the security guard’s account,” CNA wrote.

He also protested at the looney Standing Rock event, marching with the leftists carrying an upside down U.S. flag.

Phillip’s sounds like a real credit to his Indian heritage and to the U.S. Marine Corp. Wonder how long it will be before some insane leftist tries to talk him into running for office, democratic naturally.

He is another cultural Marxist attempting to bribe the catholic Church for money through Al Sharpton-like tactics.
