I moved the Who is Urban Miyares string

Postby Niner Alpha » Sat Aug 26, 2017 2:50 pm

We have reached the end of the road on reaction to the fabricated war story that an otherwise successful and respected man by the name of Urban Miyares has told at large gatherings for years. This all started when he made the mistake of linking a video of one of his war story presentations in a facebook post on the dedicated 6th of the 31st page in 2014. The reaction to that story started the odyssey that the original string became. With the recent corroborating statement by the 31st Regiment Association that the story most often repeated by Urban Miyares is untrue and "that a significant part of Urbans' combat story is a fabrication", this journey comes to an end.

The original string still exists. It's now in the Members Only section for those members of this board who are logged in.



The crowning result is not here but elsewhere. This is the link to This Ain't Hell But You Can See It From Here story that pretty much sums it all up.

He seems to be sort of a done deal, not sure where else to go with it.

So how do we all plan to review this book without requiring that all of us purchase it....thus helping Miyares profit from our disgust with his lies? LOL

I guess that one of us could purchase it and then summarize the Vietnam War tales for everyone else...then...each could submit their "review" via Amazon. Of course, "non-purchasers" would not show as a "purchaser" of the book in the review section if someone were to select to screen by "purchaser" reviews only.

Amazon will let you read some of it online before purchase. Since the body bag story is his bread and butter story it shouldn't be hard to find it early on if he includes it. However, it wouldn't be much of a problem to read the part that we are interested in and report here. Libraries could supply a copy at no cost to anybody interested. I think you can leave a review on Amazon without buying it from Amazon. Then again it could be offered other places than Amazon. Bottom line is that nobody wants to make him richer by buying the book if we can avoid it.

The best thing would be if he told the truth about his Vietnam experience.... which is.... basically that he just had arrived in country as a new NCO school E5 and experienced a medical emergency that got him sent to a hospital and eventual discharge before ever being in any combat. No body bag lie. No platoon leader lie. No combat traceable experience whatsoever in a company his records say he was penciled in for in which the then CO and 1st Sergeant have no memory of him ever being in.

So far, haven't heard anything back from the publisher.

Wow! After all these years and the best that Miyares can do is this "off the wall" publisher. Well deserved. LOL

If anyone does a Google search prior to purchasing Miyares' book, the chances that they will purchase the book should not be very great.

Interesting...when you Google "Urban Miyares autobiography" look what you get....The "This Ain't Hell..." link follows the Goldminds Publishing link. LOL

I have sent the following email to all of the 500+ men on our 6/31st roster for whom we have an email address....several have already emailed the "publisher" with their concerns.

Hello 6/31st (blindcopied),

For those who remember the Urban Miyares "body bag" and "platoon wiped out" claims....it appears that he has finally found a publisher for his autobiography. I am sure that, in this autobiography, he will repeat the same fabricated Vietnam experiences that he includes in all of his speaking engagements; thus, the Vietnam portion of his autobiography will be 99% pure fiction. A summary of our findings relative to his "tales" has been provided to the publishing company via their email link below, but they have yet to respond. Some of you men, familiar with this issue, may (or may not) like to provide them with your own input.

Sounds like this is a "print on demand" type place. I have ordered manuals from places like this and they
don't print it out until you order it....... :roll:

A merger has taken place. A publisher with a gross revenue of $80,000 a year, purchased the lesser valued Goldminds Publishing , Urban Miyares' publisher, for $28,000. Wow..... talk about big business buying out smaller business. Maybe they will have to rent a larger UPS store drop box. Wonder if this will affect his publication date?
