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.

This news is pretty sad for me because I knew the guy. The 1998 overwrite should read that he was the commander of C Troop, 1-18 Cav. I don't recall him wearing any tabs or badges. I am glad that a 19th Group (Guard) guy brought this to your attention. To me this casts a shadow of suspicion with anybody in the Guard. He left the Guard prior to GWOT. I think that the Guard did our share in GWOT with multiple mobilizations and deployments. I was mobilized twice, including a year in Afghanistan as an Infantryman. Now I'll wonder if people will think I'm a liar if I say anything about my service. Thanks Eddie...

Scott Berndt:

Talk about a disgrace to the uniform! I can't believe he got away with the fraud all those years. If you go to his website at, it still makes it sound like he has an Army SF background without stating he was one. He even has awards issued by several SF organizations. Sounds like the GotGB still have some hunting to do.

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

Wow. Absolutely mind blowing & disgraceful. They should make a documentary about how this turd BS'd his way through the years in order to be in a position to be standing next to Presidents, politicians & celebritys. I get pissed when I think of all the others like him but that have never gotten exposed or caught. Great job catching this s--t turd.

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

You can tell just by looking at him that he is a shit bird.

Royal Mons:

If these phonies want to play dress up they should join a re-enactment society and not lie about their fantasies and live off the sacrifice of others.


FRANCO K WEBB is a LYING POSER. He and I were BEST FRIENDS during the time he CLAIMS 7th GP 18D (MY MOS and MY Duty assignment - ODA 755/754, O&I, SWC G Co SFAS, 1st Bn S3).

He was NEVER ASSOCIATED WITH, ASSIGNED TO, in SUPPORT OF, or attended ANY TRAINING that would qualify his claim of being an 18D.

He was a CAR STEREO SALESMAN and INSTALLER on Yadkin Road the ENTIRE TIME I KNEW HIM. We were in Westarea Fire Department TOGETHER and he lived in a trailer on Haretown road.

It APPEARS that he has taken some of MY SF TRAINING, HISTORY and BACKGROUND, claimed it as his own, and further EMBELLISHED those stories for his own video game centered bravado.


SuperUser Account:

He probably never will. The 7th Grp picture he pretends is his is an ODA from the mid-'80s. We've identified all men in the picture. It also looks like he added a Ranger Tab to his website. He's never before claimed Ranger so this is strange.

He and Mike Mika (President of SFA Ch 34) threatened to sue the SFA National if they didn't rescind the letter they sent us, give Rudi a formal apology, and re-instate him as a member in good standing. Of course SFA National refused and nothing came of his idle threat.

Mike Mika has twice, along with Rudi Gresham the fake Green Beret claimed that Rudi spent 12 years in the S.C. National Guard and that's where he attained the rank of LTC. Neither time were they able to produce records that baked up that statement.

SGT P - Rakkasan:

I just looked at his personal website, and it still has a picture autographed by General Yarborough, and a statement that says he served as Yarborough’s Aide. When will this clown give it up? I took screen shots.

Rick Upton:

Why is he working for the VA?


First of all, thank you folks for what you do, what you’ve done, and what you’re willing to do.

Secondly, it is my hope that Mr Prouix owns up to his lies. I have been watching this story and it disgusts me that there are people who would assume to receive the accolades deserved, but never sought, by better, braver, stronger men.

Mr Prouix needs to be exposed. Well done.
