One hundred men will test today but only three win the Green Beret.
 

Alan Tracy, Green Beret… NOT!!!

He was sent to us way back in 2014 after someone saw him running his mouth in a “Occupy Wall Street” forum. He claimed to have been a Green Beret in the 70’s and trained SWAT while a GB. We looked at his profile and saw him wearing a GB with no “Flash”. In fact, it didn’t even have a Candy stripe. We posted his name and claims in a vetted SF forum and couldn’t find anybody who knew him. We saved screen shots and started a file.

At the bottom of the picture section, click on the red bar for more pictures.

Somehow his case got lost the shuffle and never got worked. Fast forward to 2019. He was complaining about not being able to find a job on Facebook, and how he was a GB for 8 years. A fellow Green Beret saw the comment and wanted to help a brother out. He asked for his resume and it showed 18E (Special Forces Communications Sergeant). When emails started back and forth, he was asked to submit a DD214. Initially he said it was lost. When he submitted his NGB Form 22, it was clear he wasn’t what he claimed.

When questioned about it, he threatened to lawyer up. That’s when we were notified. We submitted our own request for records and confirmed what we already assumed.

Not only was he NOT a Green Beret, we don’t even see him as Airborne qualified, which is needed to be a Green Beret. We do see him as assigned to an SF unit as 64C, Light vehicle operator and also as a 94B cook.

We reached out to him for comment and he responded during the time he served, every person in the unit was considered a Green Beret. He admits he never completed the SFQC (Special Forces Qualification Course). He adds that he was an E-6 (wee see him as an E-4) and only put 18E on his resume to attract civilian employers.

You shouldn't claim to be a GB on your resume to attract Civilian employers if you aren't a Green Beret.

We don’t see him ever even attempting the SFQC. 

We reached out to him in a professional manner to discuss his claims and get clarification. He sent us a 4 page email that’s included in the pictures section and a followup email about stalking with various portions underlined.

The thing is, this isn't stalking. It's called correcting a blatant lie. It’s called asking a questions before an article is done and giving him every chance to clarify what might be a mistake. He said he never claimed to be “Flash” qualified. In his era, that would mean claiming to be SF Qualified. Yet in a screen shot in the picture section, he points out nobody noticed he was missing his “flash” as his wife wanted insisted on a picture and he was just issued a new uniform. He also claims 18E From 1977-84 yet he uses a National Geographic photo of ODA 321 and 325 from 2006 OEF deployment.

Green Beret: False

Airborne: False

8 years as a GB: False, he was assigned to 19th as a Cook and Light Vech Oper for about 4

18E: False, that needs to be removed from his resume.

His claim that "everybody in the unit was considered a Green Beret": False, it is a MUST the you graduate the SFQC/SFOC/SFTG to be considered a GB. He was a guy assigned to a Special Forces unit but NOT a Green Beret.

He’ll now be added to our Hall of Zeroes.

Brother Of Brian Magyar:

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 ….

Jory Jory:

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

SuperUser Account:

No Idea. It's hard to follow up on these guys as the workload is very heavy. We expose them and move on.

william frank grist:

Great site I am glad to see it in operation. William Frank Grist SF

U.S. Naval Aircrewman (90-95):

He's also a registered sex offender....and a scum bag.

U.S. Naval Aircrewman (90-95):

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.

Brian M Whitney:

Is he still getting 100% disability or was he ever? Whats the deal with this story?

Don Canaday:

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.

DZKLAY62:

Wow! I am stupefied that a sex offender would expose himself to so much attention and expect the truth to not come out...

DZKLAY62:

I refuse to believe any SF or Operator would wear that bow tie, just saying.
