🔥 What to do before an email is sent 🔥
Someone asked why are Special Forces guys so sensitive about the term Special Forces and people falsely claiming to be one and why we do this.
So here is our response.
Rap Peavy claimed to be a Green Beret for decades to help sell cars.
James Cooper should do some research. He wears an elisted beret yet 0-6 rank on his uniform.
Carl claims 1000 Jumps among other claims yet wasn't even Airborne.
Jeremy Dewitte, Fake Green Beret, serial Fake LEO, and walking train wreck.
If you're going to buy a fake uniform, at least buy one that fits.
Dan, went so far as to create fake emails and fake profiles, and had those fake people comment as though they served with him.
Holy Cow... When you lie, go big or go home. Martin went big.
Christopher Scott Rhodes, Ranger and Special Forces? In the reserves in the 20th? The Amy rank of SSGT?
People should do their research before they start living the lie.
Mike Langford came to us via a Special Forces Forum he had weaseled his way into. Guys in there saw red flags in his statements and reached out to us.
Richard Calvert Claimed to be a Green Beret, 54 Combat Jumps and 2 Silver Stars.
He wasn't even Airborne and never went to Vietnam.
He's been sent to us twice now from people he's reached out to on linkedin claiming to be a Green Beret in Vietnam
We were messaged a number of times that Patrick Flores is back at it on social media under a few fake profiles. We had lost the audio of his confession, so we repost it here.
You should never send your resume claiming to be a Green Beret to a real GB if you aren't one.
Big Willie had claimed to be a secret Green Beret for almost 40+ years, that claim, among others, is false.
He claimed to have been both an 18D and 18B (SF Medical and SF Weapons Sergeant) in 10th SFG(A). He stated much of what he did for the Gov is still classified.
All false. He wasn't even Airborne.
Chris Kimball, Claimed highspeed Green Beret w/ combat jumps on classified missions. He never attempted the Special Forces Q-Course and never left the States
Thou shalt not bear false witness.
What can you say about a pastor that lies about being a Green Beret...
We were sent COL Dan a few years ago. COL Dan (Really PFC Dan) Claims Airborne, Military Freefall, 2 Combat jumps, Ranger Gfeen Beret...
Allyn Dilly claims he's so high speed that the Government put a micro chip in him to monitor location and vital signs.
Art Brownstein claimed 5th Special Forces Goup in Vietnam. Direct action missions, Regional Languages, advanced military skills... All false
At various tmes, Robert Foan has claimed Air Assault, 18B, 1st SF Group. He even has a MACV-SOG patch in his Shadow Box??? All false
Follow up after he was found to have left his lies on his truck.
He sent us pictures of another truck to make it look like he removed the fake decals
Allen Mosher claimed to be a Airborne, Sniper, Ranger, SF among other things, all false
News article and audio from Gabrielle Porter at the Daily Sentinel
Richard Vallejos, Airborne, Ranger, Combat Diver, MSG, Green Beret, all fake claims
David Shaffer claimed to be a Colonel, Combat Diver, Paratrooper, Green Beret, West Point Graduate and served on four different Continents... All False
Shon Wilson said his training was "To classified" to put in his records
Fake Green Beret, Fake Ranger, Fake Silver Star, fake, fake, fake...
$31,146 raised in this years auction.
Thank you to all that participated.
Ronald Worthey claimed to have been 5th SFG(A) in Vietnam for 3 solid years, to have the Silver Star, and also received 3 Purple Hearts. All, false claims.
The fraud who just won't go away. So not worth our time...
Stephen Sanders decided to respond to our article with a hate voicemail.
Andrew Strempel was sent to us by a close friend. We knew in a millisecond he was a fraud.
Stephen Sanders quickly tried to change the narative when he was called out by a real Green Beret.
Listen as 2 of our guys discuss what we do and why we do it, along with some other good SF dialog.
1SG, 82nd, 101st, Air Assault, Airborne, Ranger, SF, Combat Infantry Badge all 100% false.
He was a non Airborne Dump truck driver who got booted from the Army.
Distinguished Service Medal, Purple Heart, Berlin Airlift Medal w/o device, issued from 1948-49 (SAY WHAT??),
Special Forces Tab, Air Assault, Airborne, SCUBA, and much more... ALL FAKE
Ranger, Combat Diver Qualification Course, SFOD-D, Airborne, Pathfinder, Military Freefall., Special Forces... All false.
We are former and current Green Berets who find and investigate those who falsely claim to be a Green Beret. We will never out someone unless we are 100% certain via FOIA and Bragg.
9 June 2020
Ya' know, instead of considering why someone does what he does, like assholes, ya' jump to foul comments about someone ya' never met, or know anything about ….
I'd call our parents white trash, but that would be an insult to white trash ….
Brain went into the United States Army after July 1975, after I went into the United States Navy in that July ….
We both got out of Boot in September of 75' ….
That was the last I ever saw of him ????
Neither of us wanted to go into the Military, but we were kicked out he house by our mother, to call her a mother is also an insult to all mothers ....
If you ever saw the movie " Mommy Dearest " , then ya' might have some idea what our childhood was like ….
The only thing that put the smile on our mother's face was when she was beating the living shit out of her boys, buckle end first ….
In the late sixties, early seventies, Brian and I never did drugs, alcohol, or commit any crimes ….
As a kid, Brian always wanted to be part of a group, gang, whatever ….
I loved karate, so I walked the path of bushido, honor and face above all ….
Always a team player, but still a loner ….
People tell me I'm a veteran, but I'm quick to say that in my eight years in the United States Navy, ( 1975-1979 active, - 1983 reserve ),
I never carried a gun, or, was ever in any danger ….
Most of it on sea duty, all fun and games, and going over seas, but, after all, sailors belong at sea ….
Just as I was getting off active duty, I made Second Class Petty Officer, IC-2, N.E.C. ( M.O.S.) 4713, telecommunications,,,,
telephone man ….
Honorably discharged, I display that along with my DD-214
I'm now sixty-three, and retiring from the telephone company ….
So,,, no comments about me ….
It's been forty-five years now ….
Brian is my younger brother, but I understand him just the same …..
Kind'a like a car salesman, he always needed that affirmation from others ….
He still needs what he never got from our mother,,,, to be loved, appreciated, admired, respected ….
As a kid, he loved the song " Ballard of the Green Berets " ….
He wasn't stealing glory, but imitating that which he admired the most in the United States Army,,,, the Green Berets ….
When I read the comments about Brain, as I suspect, real Green Berets, and other Army Special Forces,,,, are much like United States Marines, United States Navy Seals, and now Antifa protesters ….
And I met a few Marines and Seals ( claiming ) during my time in the Navy ….
They are only really tough when the other guy can't fight back, shit-for-brains bullies ….
My proof, Viet Nam, Granada, Fallujah, Pakistan ….
As far as I know, you tough guys never faced real Soviet, Chinese, Iranian, or any other real Special Forces on equal footing ….
Hell, the real Rambo's in Viet Nam was the Viet Cong …..
And they kicked the ( bull ) shit out of you smart mouth's ….
When I was aboard ship, the only time I found our who went to Viet Nam was during dress inspections, when they wore their ribbons on their chest ….
They never talked about it, I assume it was the most horrifying times of their lives ….
Had Brian had good parents, good home, good schooling, a good life, I have no doubt he would have proudly earned the ribbons on his chest ….
In the United States Navy, I only earned an overseas service ribbon, and a good conduct ribbon, which I never wore, but are now on my old Navy uniform for when I pass away ….
Brian is, and always will be my brother, we suffered too much together as kids, and I appreciate the fact he is imitating the best the United States Army had to offer,,, in his time ….
And if you can't appreciate his admiration of the Green Berets, YA' can kiss my Navy Blue ass ….
I don't know what to say. He is such a silver tongue devil. He slid into our lives and we fell for his line of BS. This was back in the late 80's/early 90's. Met him in a local biker bar, he was a musician. I said, Thank you and welcome home. I lent him $$. I introduced him to a friend and that turned into a nightmare. Boy, he's got a special place in heaven. On a nicer note, Thanks so much for this site
No Idea. It's hard to follow up on these guys as the workload is very heavy. We expose them and move on.
Great site I am glad to see it in operation. William Frank Grist SF
He's also a registered sex offender....and a scum bag.
I think this is well known by this point - but for added extra bonus actually is a REAL registered sex offender. This guy is a danger to the community in a multitude of ways & he shows no shame or remorse & he's also a real d-bag. He needs to get locked up.
Is he still getting 100% disability or was he ever? Whats the deal with this story?
Every time some faker claiming to be SF gets in trouble or acts up, it can reflect badly on us in the media. Another reason to point them out when they present themselves.
Wow! I am stupefied that a sex offender would expose himself to so much attention and expect the truth to not come out...
I refuse to believe any SF or Operator would wear that bow tie, just saying.
