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

Chris Kimball, Green Beret... NOT!!

Today we present Christopher Neal Kimball, fake Green Beret.

Chris was sent to us by many that have, and continue to hear him preach. He claims to have been a high speed Green Beret who fellow Green Berets die in his arms.

He was so pissed that he climbed on a Humvee and flipped God off.

You can hear him claiming to be Special Forces Qualified in this video 👉Hear his claims here.👈 Click that green text. Give it time to load.



Claiming to be SF Qualified means only one thing. You are claiming to be a Green Beret.

We were also told he had a guy video taping him during sermons for a documentary. He would ask the guy to turn off the video at certain times because he was about to talk about classified stuff he shouldn’t have on camera,

We received so many emails telling the same story from his parishioners. The multiple emails are all included in the picture section. You’ll need to click the bottom red bar to expand to see more screen shots of the emails.

What are some of Chris Kimball’s claims:

Claiming to be a Green Beret. 100% False. Never even made it to Selection much less the Q-Course.

Claiming to have been a medic in the Military. 100% False

Claiming that the military made him marry his wife for “a cover” What???? 100% False. 

Claiming to have had friends die in his arms in Combat. 100% False. He was Never in Combat

Claiming Classified missions. 100% False. Never on a mission.

Claiming to have slit a throat of a “big time leader” 100% False. He was Never in Combat. Never on a mission.

Claiming he liked the rush of killing people. 100% False, at least not as a Green Beret or in the Military.

Claiming he couldn’t talk about missions. 100% False. This is funny because he says he can't talk about it, but then talks about it all the time.

Claiming bullets “whizzing by his head” 100% False, at least not as a Green Beret in combat.

Claiming to have been “stuffed in a barrel and a small women kicked his butt to get him in shape” 100% False. Not something they do in SOPC.

Claiming to have “jumped out of airplanes on secret missions” 100% False. Never deployed on secret missions much less made a combat jump.

Claiming to have traded a Top Secret mission overseas that would pay him $1000’s to train MMA. 100% False.

Claiming to have been assigned to a Psychological Operations Unit and to have conducted Operations with that unit. 100% False. Never deployed and never assigned to any such unit.

Sooo, what do we know as 100% fact.

Chris Kimball, fake Green Beret, did indeed “try” to become a GB. He enlisted under an 18X contract. Under the 18X enlistment option, recruits are guaranteed “the opportunity” to "try out" for Special Forces. It does not guarantee that the recruit will be accepted into the Special Forces program. It only guarantees that the recruit will be given the opportunity to see if he "has the stuff." Chris Kimball did NOT have the stuff.

Chris Kimball, fake Green Beret, is indeed just that, a fake Green Beret. He did none of the claims above. He was a 2 time wash out from SOPC (Special Operations Prep Course). This is a course an 18X would go through to prep you for SFAS (Special Forces Assessment and Selection) “Selection”, which is before SFQC (Special Forces Qualification Course)

We checked ATRRS (Army Training Requirements and Resources System) which goes back to 1985 and it shows him as a “L” and a “Z” for SOPC and an “N” for SFAS x2.

The L code would mean he was a recycle in the prep course the first time  and thus an N “no show” for SFAS the first time. The 2nd time through SOPC, he was a Z meaning non successful completion… Ergo, the second N for SFAS as a no show.

He never even made it to Selection much less the SFQC (Special Forces Qualification Course).

Being a two time NO-GO in SOPC does NOT give one the ability to claim to be a Green Beret. 

As for his claim of Fellow GBs dying in his arms… He never left the States. His former wife confirms that as do his records. He has no awards that one would get had he been deployed. His awards are what one would receive for having been active duty during that time. 

It looks like Chris Kimball, fake Green Beret spent a little over a year on active duty.

Ol' "Sarge" here talking all kinds of crap and stuff after he was exposed...LOL

Johnny O:

It's really pathetic that people try to get away with this type of stuff. I spent 23 years in the Army and retired in 2006 and although would have loved to to be a part of a Special Forces or Ranger unit and go through all of the training, never did it. And it just amazes me the lengths that people will go through to embellish military service.

Jacob Martin:

Question: There's a photo of him with two "fatboys" wearing berets, are either of them actually SF? The one in the middle sure doesn't wear his beret correctly (might be an officer)! lol


Impressive bio. Rambo, Ralph Macchio (Karate Kid) and Chuck Norris all rolled into one. They have a song named for him "Superman, Where Are You Now".


I don't know much about a military uniform BUT his pants are WAY too long...they bunch up on tops of his shoes and basically drag the ground in the back. Also, there was a pic of him with a lady...outside...without a cover. Hmm.


Someone collected this man's entire saga here:

Warning: you'll spend hours on this website.

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

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