COL Bob Howard served five tours in Vietnam and is the only soldier in our nation's history to be nominated for the Congressional Medal of Honor three times for three separate actions within a thirteen month period. The first nomination was downgraded to the Distinguished Service Cross. The second nomination was downgraded to the Silver Star. The third nomination was downgraded to a 2nd Distinguished Service Cross but later upgraded to the Medal of Honor.
He received a direct appointment from Master Sergeant to 1st Lieutenant in 1969, and was awarded the Medal of Honor by President Richard M. Nixon at the White House in 1971. His other awards for valor include the Distinguished Service Cross - our nation's second highest award, the Silver Star - the third highest award, and numerous lesser decorations including eight Purple Hearts. He received his decorations for valor for actions while serving as an NCO (Non-Commissioned Officer).
He claims to have been on a 3 man team doing stuff in South America.

He claimed 1st Group but wore a 5th Group flash on his beret. He'd also have his friend text his female roomate telling her that Tyler was need ASAP as they're getting shot at. Bwaahaahaa

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.
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.
Usually when I see a guy with this much shite on a vest, jacket and hats he does not pass the smell test. If you screaming that loud "look at me I am a hero" you probably aren't.
I guess he spent 1 year and 5 months as a pivot man and is trying to reclaim his dignity. Sorry never going to happen now.
