Newly surfaced video shows Native American activist Nathan Phillips explicitly claimed he was a “Vietnam Vet” — not merely a “Vietnam times veteran” or a “Vietnam veteran times” as he’s stated in the past.

In a video Phillips shared to his Facebook page on January 3, 2018, he stated plainly, “I’m a Vietnam Vet.”

“I served in Marine Corps 72 to 76,” he said. “I got discharged May 5, 1976. I got honorable discharge and one of the boxes shows peacetime or, what my box says is that I was in theater. I don’t talk much about my Vietnam times.”

Phil Kerpen shared the video late Wednesday night on Twitter:

As Kerpen notes, Phillips also shared a picture with a “Vietnam War Veteran” medallion on Veterans Day 2018:

The timing for this to come out is absolutely hilarious considering the Washington Post several hours before ran an article with the assertion that “there’s no evidence that [Phillips has] ever claimed to have served in Vietnam.”


The Covington Catholic student’s story is a great example of independent media countering the MSM narrative. Roger Stone explains how this is the only hope for the future of media.

Lamothe acknowledged the video on Twitter but The Post has yet to update their article as of 1:21 AM EST.

As I reported yesterday, the first reporter to break the story of Phillips and the Covington Catholic students interaction, Indian Country Today’s Vincent Schilling, stealth-edited his viral article on the incident to erase claims about Phillips’ alleged service in Vietnam:

He also edited an old article from 2008 which said Phillips “described coming back to the U.S. as a veteran from Vietnam” to say he “described coming back to the U.S. as a veteran of the Vietnam era.”

Retired Navy SEAL Don Shipley obtained Phillips’ military records and it reportedly showed he was trained as an electrician and worked as a refrigerator mechanic stateside in Lincoln, Nebraska and later moved to a marine base in El Toro, California where he “went AWOL a few times.”

As Cassandra Fairbanks at The Gateway Pundit reported on Tuesday, $6,000 was raised as part of a GoFundMe campaign to make a film about Phillips which included the claim that he was a “marine in Vietnam.”
