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

Dane Seiber, Green Beret... NOT!!

He went to vote next to a real GB and didn't know the far and near recognition signals.

This guy came to his local polling station a few years back. A guy standing next to hom noticed his 3ft SF decal on his truck.

He waited for him to vote and then struck up a conversation. From him:

He had a HUGE SF decal on his truck with 777 under it. I waited for him outside and coin checked him. He looked at my coin like a deer in headlights. He was very vague and didn’t seem to want to talk about  his time in “Group”. I asked him what the 777 was on the back of his truck and he said his team. 

I told him about a secret “vetted” site on FaceBook for only SF qualified people. He said to find him on FB. I was never able to.

Months later, I saw him comment on a thread of a friend we shared. He had an SF Crest as a profile pic, an SF action pic as a Banner, and pics of him wearing an SF shirt and his SF Tattoo on his calf. 

I started a PM with him and reminded him of SF Brothers and talking at the polling station. He then said he was in the 5th and 11th as an 18D….back in November he claimed 7th. hmmmm

He then went on to state that he DID NOT want me to get him vetted as he was a private person. LOL, for being a private person he sure did have a lot of SF stuff posted.

I asked him some further vetting questions that only an 18D would know and he blocked me from further commo…… That’s when we decided to send for his records, as nobody in SF Brothers knew him and the 777 wasn't correct for and ODA as each compnay only had 6 teams.


On a side note;

1/10 in PROVIDE COMFORT put together provisional ODA's made up of men from Bn HQ and SPT Co. ODA's 017 & 027. This is the only time we can find an ODA'S designation of "-7"

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.

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.


This is almost unbelievable. This guy wanted to be a Green Beret so bad he faked it to the grave. It must have been awesome to him to take on a persona. Feeling like a hero, getting recognition, and being treated like a hero in addition to fellowship with real warriors was too much to pass up. It must have felt good. I'm sure he could have joined the military. He just didn't think it was worth it. He could have everything without dropping a single iota of blood, sweat, or tears. I feel sorry for his family. This guy is to me obviously mentally ill. I guess he never thought he would hurt and shame his family to the extent he ended up doing so. To any potential fakers. Let this guy be a lesson to you. If you want what we have, just join the military. Don't do this to your family and friends.


I just want to thank Guardians of the Green Beret. I had no idea this problem was so widespread. These phonies do a great disservice to all us real Green Berets. Yes, I am a Green Beret. They give a false representation of who we are, what we are, and what we represent. These phonies are almost always criminal otherwise in my opinion. Good job Guardians of the Green Beret. People probably don't realize what it would be like for me to ever actually meet a phony Green Beret. Offensive is not the word. I don't think there is a word for all the things that would go through my mind.


is that white shirt even a thing? i never knew that

Johnny O:

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
