Bud Hadley is classic. He pretended to be a Green Beret for a long time. He helped start and expand Warlaord Beard Oil Company using those lies.
He had a number of REAL GREEN BERETS as friends.
Here's where and how he got caught........
First Link to Bud's video is here
The admins and those that help in Guardians of The Green Beret are all members of a secret forum called SF Brothers. We created a unique challenge coin for members only that would benefit the Green Beret Foundation.
A vetted member "Thought" Bud Hadley was a member and sent him alink to purchase a coin. Bud put his order in. The thing is, we had a stop gap.....
The GBF would send us the name of each person wanting to purchase the coin. We would then verify that he was a vetted member of SF Brothers before the coin was sent.
We noticed Bud Hadley was NOT a member. We reached out to him and expalined he had to get vetted before we could ship the coin.
His reply was to "keep money as a donation and he didn't want vetted" ?????
That seemed like a RED FLAG as someone had tried to get him vetted a few months before, thinking him a "brother"
We messaged some of the real GBs on his friends list and nobody knew him. Hmmmmm
We reached out to the 20th in Mobile Ala., the unit Bud "The POSer" Hadley claimed to have served in and they didn't know him either.
So before we even sent for records, we called him. We didn't record it but, after much dialog, he did admit to NOT being a GB. Before the phone call was over,
He offered to donate $1500 a quarter to the Green Beret Foundation if we swept this under the rug. SAY WHAT??????
We don't sell honor.
Here's his YouTube Link:
Video will soon be on Vimeo. Use the GOV link below
We reached out to our brothers at http://guardianofvalor.com and they helped work this with us.
Bud Hadley, Fake green Beret, you'll forever be on The Guardians of the Green Beret Hall of Shame.
