Ranger, Combat Diver Qualification Course, SFOD-D, Airborne, Pathfinder, Military Freefall., Special Forces... All false.
Lifelong crinminal and con man.
He was getting away with his lie until his partner reached out to Guardians of the Green Beret
“CSM” Reggie claims to have had 25 years in Special Operations Command and told our investigator that he served in 5th SFG(A).
Both are false claims.
David Murphy fake Green Beret claims:
Combat Infantry Badge with star, Both Master Sergeant (E-8) and/or Chief Warrant Officer 4 (CW4) depending on the picture, Distinguished Service Cross, Silver Star, Soldiers Medal, Bronze Star, Purple Heart, Ranger, Special Forces, CIA, and on and on...
Ran used these false claims to attain money via fundraisers and conning friends and associates.
After Bud hadley was busted, he tried to buy our silence with a $1500/quarter donation to the Green Beret Foundation.
If it was shiny and for sale in the PX, he bought it and claimed to have earned it.
Joe scammed $1000's and $1000's from those around him based on his lies.
His family had asked him for years to stop claiming to have been in the service.
It seems that Ron Stone has been making a bit of money writing books about his service in Viet Nam while claiming to be a former Special Forces soldier. Only thing, he wasn't.
Rudi Gresham, fake Green Beret, used his SF claims to benefit himself for decades.
Bruce claimed we sent a hit squad to get him after we exposed his lies. Locals also said he would talk down to other as "He was a Green Beret"
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.
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.
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.
