With 2,746 confirmed kills, Sgt. 1st Class Dillard Johnson is the deadliest American soldier on record and maybe the most humble.

Well gee, we probably didn’t need to publish his name. Perhaps they can print his address just to make it a bit easier for the enemy to find his family.
Garry frickin’ Owen. What a soldier. Not because of his kill count, but because of his humility and the incredible way he’s handling his newest enemy, his lymphoma.
I was thinking the same thing and I see they published the town he lives in. Not wise.
“Well gee, we probably didnt need to publish his name.”
The interview was about plugging his published memoirs “Carnivore” for sale next week, so he’s cool with it. He’s gonna attract the anti-war libtard pukes but sounds like he doesn’t give a rip.
Dillard Johnson voluntarily co-wrote a memoir using his own name.
I think the crew of the Enola Gay would beg to differ...
“With a name like Carnivore you know it has to be good” ;-)
Not so much. This one was so bad I stopped watching it halfway through.
Yeah sounds like he doesn’t. Heck of a story.
If I wasn’t so in awe of those who’ve served bravely in combat I’d ask if he accomplished his feat as a mess hall supervisor.
“With 2,746 confirmed kills...”
Maybe, maybe not.
This guy can take care of himself, but why publish the town he lives in and the fact he has four children.
There are other things which seemed excessive, 37 medals for one.
Hope he’s legit.
I’ve worked with this man in Baghdad. Pure BULLSH*T.
That’s all I can say.
How does one go from being a 17-yr NCO, Bradley Vehicle Commander, to a 20-yr NCO who is the second-most prolific sniper in the military?
I call B.S.
Thisainthell.us is a great blog for getting to the truth about soldiers or media claims.
This Sergeant may be a Hero but the News Media or the Obama administration was Highly Irresponsible releasing his name to the Public.
Its not as if the American People are the only ones who will be reading the article.
Why would they put he and his family in danger.The Federal and State Governments won’t defend him.
After-all He may have to use an Assault weapon which the Liberal Clowns don’t like to defend himself.
For his own safety I would recommend he never comes to Connecticut. Your not allowed to have one of those unless you tell the governor and his toady’s in the state police.
Yeah. If it’s on Amazon, I;ll get it..
Your call, would be correct.
Well gee, we probably didnt need to publish his name. Perhaps they can print his address just to make it a bit easier for the enemy to find his family..
No, the name and location wasn’t appropriate nor was including his photograph. Doesn’t make any difference how many he personally killed. He did his job and that is all that is needed to know. Let the man go peacefully without bringing anymore attention.
Durbin should be imprisoned Immediately! He is trying to get this man murdered on American soil, so the fedzilla/globalists can exploit that to the max! My God, would the al Qaeda murderers please rid US of these Washington oligarchs?
Well, to be fair, he is writing a book. He's asking for the publicity.
Probably trying to put away a few bucks for the family if the chemo doesn't work out.
Get a clue. Dillard Johnson co-wrote a memoir using his own name.
Sounds like more than two kills a day, every day, for more than 1,000 days. Is that possible? Didn’t he ever go on leave?
Get a clue. Dillard Johnson co-wrote a memoir using his own name.
Well Thanks for the Info.I guess He has other demons to worry about.But if I were in his shoes I sure wouldn’t want to have my identity known if only for the safety of his family.
"Hey, sir, I know I'm a Bradley Commander, and I'm a senior NCO, maybe even a Platoon Sergeant, but I'd like to chill all that for a bit this deployment and take up sniping."
It doesn't happen.
Also, I was a Bradley crewmember for several years in my enlisted days, and I was in the Infantry for a decade. Who aside from snipers (real ones) and fighter pilots track their kills? When a Bradley destroys a vehicle, the BDA (battle damage assessment) sent up the chain describes the vehicles destroyed and, maybe, a guess as to how many enemy KIA.
The comments on this blog are most interesting. 80% throw the BS flag, 5% swear he’s the real deal, and 15% say wait and see until more research. Regardless, most agree it’s very unprofessional and non-traditional for military serviceman. Maybe this is the new era. “What did you do in the war, granddad?” “Hell I defeated the Germans single handed and then went to the Pacific and finished them off as well”
Humble? You've got to be kidding? Who counts their "kills" and claims to be humble? How did he "confirm" those kills? This assclown sounds like another braggart.
I call BS on this.
“I think the crew of the Enola Gay would beg to differ...”
ROFL! I had to read it twice to get my head to recognize what you were saying, but you’re right, the Enola Gay had far greater kills.
Great film! Talk about humble!
Yes. Hollywood meets the Marines....
” But what really kills the story is his “dabbling” in being a sniper. That makes absolutely no sense.”
Oh, I don’t know. My oldest brother was an occasional sniper in Vietnam. He was assigned to an engineering unit, but was sometimes called on to be the long gun on ambushes. He was also called away to sit on an airport’s roof during the Israeli hostage crisis during the Munich Olympics when he just happened to be stationed there The Army let him use a very nice customized rifle although compared to what they use now, I thought it just looked like a tricked out hunting rifle.
Good point, but this guy was 38 years old in 2003 when we went into Iraq. He was essentially a "senior citizen" in the military world.
Senior NCOs don't go on sniper missions. He was a platoon sergeant, pushing 40, and was a sniper missions? Snipers are Staff Sergeants and below.
This guy saying he was a 40 year old Sergeant First Class platoon sergeant that had a part-time job as a sniper (with over 120 kills) is like a Battalion Commander sneaking away to pull guard duty at a checkpoint.
Sorry, I just don't buy it.
This dude personally killed nearly 3000 bad guys? There are entire battalions that don't get that many kills.
