Soldiers’ Angels Responds


15 August 2012

I asked board members of Soldiers’ Angels who owns the Soldiers’ Angels warehouse in San Antonio.   A Soldiers' Angel said I should ask a board member, and during due diligence I asked Board Member Mark Seavey.

Mr. Seavey just replied:

“Do your own damn research, it's not like a property search wouldn't come up with it.  The easy thing to do would be just to tell you and let you realize for yourself that your barking up yet another misbeggotten tree, but since you claim to have sources so close to SA you must already know.  Keen job on that scoop about the T-shirts though, I was particularly impressed with how you saw through our subterfuge of claiming it on IRS forms.  Any chances of you getting civil answers from me went out the window when you decided to classlessly scare the shit out of my wife with dire predictions of legs being blown off during my embed, which you then said didn't happen, despite it being on the cover of the 24th largest magazine in the US (2.2 million copies.)

“Still waiting on the legal expert who agrees with your assertion that flying over the Taliban constitutes a violation of the GC [Geneva Conventions].  When I get that, I'll send you the landlord's name and number.”

It is telling that Mr. Seavey admits in the second paragraph to his involvement in the MEDEVAC issue.  Soldiers’ Angels previously made a statement that they were not involved, and yet this board member comes out again showing that the opposite is true.

The constant aggressiveness from the Soldiers' Angels leadership is astounding.  Where are the angels and the love?

    If he, or any other board member, tells you, then they are on the record. He will never tell you anything. The first thing that any lawyer tells you when they represent you is to shut up. Most of them follow their own advice. Like any lawyer, words came out of Seavey's mouth, but he did not really say anything. Except that he does not like you very much.

    A property search would not necessarily reveal anything but what is filed with the municipality. As you know, there are a million ways to mask the true ownership of anything. Using an LLC registered in a state like Delaware that has strong ownership secrecy laws would be one way. I am not familiar with Nevada law.

    In a situation like this, you might have to contact the previous owner and ask them who purchased the property from them. They may know the actual principal, who probably used lawyers to handle the transaction for them.

    Or you could just let your moles inside SA tell you.

    Now that I think about it, they probably already have.

    A ha!

    Was this contact made to him through his personal account or through his SA account? It sounds to me as if he was speaking in a personal capacity and not official, considering the mention of his wife.

      Good question. It was his official account from the SA website. It was a professional inquirey and that was his official answer. Why he chose to include his wife is known only to him.

    Not for nothing, but is his wife living under a rock? Never heard of IED's before hearing something from you? Come on.

    Mr. Seavey's response is classic circlejerk.

    Seavey sent me the same garbage prompt when he PMed me with the comment "ok, I'll bite, when did I disrespect or lie about a certain character I had blogged about. In the blog I used Seavey's own words, added nothing of my own except that he was lying and knew it. He is a poser hunter, not an altruistic angel of mercy. Never answers a question only redirects to deflect. He's a bad joke who got caught with his pants down. His wife should be scared of being married to such an arrogant ass. :-*

    Good God, is this how SA's leadership does business? I made a sizable contribution to Valour-IT, but I want nothing to do with such offensive, unprofessional behavior in the charities I support. There are too many five star military support organizations in Charity Navigator to be wasting time with such lowlifes. I'm outta there.

    I wonder if Soldiers Angels every thought about the other inferences of the abbreviation of SA, the main one being Sturmabteilung (SA) the "Brown Shirts" of Hitlers thugs from which sprung the SS. :eek:

    Sounds like the same kind of rhetoric, deflect, dissuade, demoralize, and destroy :-?
