It wasn't his DD 214, it was a summary of his service (in error) obtained through the FOIA.
In the YouTube video, Shipley also says that “I haven’t personally heard him use the words that I am a Vietnam Vet. What I’ve heard him say and what’s written is ‘I was in Vietnam Times.”


Shipley then shows a clip of a CNN video in which Nathan Phillips does say ‘Vietnam Times,’ while CNN does show a graphic that writes “I’m a Vietnam Veteran …”Well-known Navy SEAL Don Shipley obtains Nathan Phillips' Military records - IndianCountryToday.com.....
it about 5 mins in when Shipley admits that he never heard Phillips claim he was a Vietnam vet. 5:20 he says that Phillips was a "the Vietnam Era".

At the end of the video he puts a website address up and ask for 10 dollars to join .

Dude is also a bit of a racist at the start of the video.

How Liberals Are Getting the Nathan Phillips Story Wrong

Nathan Phillips is a hero, of that there is no doubt. And the privileged white boys, wearing red MAGA hats surrounding him, singing their private school fight songs, are an apt stand-in for the future, and past, and of American white supremacy. But the lessons to be learned from the incident‑that oppressed peoples are constantly exercising their own agency outside of the control of their oppressors, that non-violence is just one tactic amongst many, that veteran-status in the US military should not confer extra-special consideration (to the contrary), and that systemic, racist oppression is not limited to video clips of angry white boys-these lessons will almost certainly only be available to those willing to look deeper than the liberal, social-media pile-on.

From Gaza, to Ferguson, to Standing Rock (where Phillips also was an active participant), the correct path is always to stand in solidarity with the liberation struggles of oppressed peoples everywhere, learning from them, supporting wherever possible, and following their lead.
Yeah, gotta stand in solidarity with all those Ferguson looters, arsonists, convenience store thugs, etc. What high ideals.

Nathan Philips should be given a national parade alongside Bowe Berghdal. He is a proud Native American and a war hero who fought the government for his right to abuse drugs and alcohol and be a true individual. He has demonstrated his intelligence by saving money avoiding toothpaste and boycotting dentists.

He is 64 and looks 84 because of the hard life imposed on him by "bad" Americans who expect Nathan to actually work for a living like them. Nathan goes to public events trying bait different groups into attacking him while he beats an Indian drum.

Oddly Elizabeth Warren, an artificial Native American icon has not stepped forward to defend Philips as he horns his way into the action in front of cameras like a feathered David Hogg. Nathan embarrasses real Native Americans and he is a poor representative of any Native American movement but he is useful as an ankle biter for the Democratic Party as it delivers investigations and show trials to impeach the president.

Sadly Philips is caricture of a real Indian that saw a publicity wagon train and attacked it single-handed to feed his own phony image.

Good point.

And, Senator Blumenthal has not defended him either, and they BOTH falsely claimed to have served in Vietnam.

Birds of a feather...
