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

Daniel Lombardi, Green Beret... NOT!!

Not even worth our time......

Let us present Daniel Lombardi.

EDIT: Before we get started, Daniel Lombardi, fake Green Beret went to great lengths to try and correct his lies. He claimed he thought we were the frauds, was just messing with us, and that he never claimed to have been SF. He claimed it for years. At one time we had a newspaper article that proved that false as it mentioned him being SF in it. That link is now a bad link and we didn't save screen shots (bummer). That being said, the very first photo is a screen shot from a former friend of his going on record as to his claims. NUFF SAID Daniel.

He came under our radar a while back. 

He had asked to join a 7th Grp forum. With all new adds, the first thing that is done is a scan of their FB profile to see if they have any SF friends. 

He had zero. His profile also had him as an 18B. He was asked his ties to the 7th.

The screen shots follow. When called on his BS, he tried to backtrack and you can see that in the screen shots. However, we contacted some of his friends and they said he had claimed to be a GB infant of them often.

We “Outed” him on FB and can only think he whined enough to get FB to pull the post about him. In that post we had a URL that had a writeup about him also claiming to have been Special Forces. That link is no longer good. We should have saved screen shots of the header and the text of the article. We learned quickly after that to do so, as he had the article pulled. We tried to pull it from the payback machine and it came up as a bad link.

As soon as he knew he was busted, he removed the 18B from his profile as it had yet to be saved. The thing he couldn't remove was the PM’s to our admins and the verbal claims to his friends.

Daniel Lombardi, you’ll be added to the “Not worth out time” section, as you were to easy to bust.

I remember when this was going down and both saw the article and the 18B on his profile.

To bad the article wasn't saved.

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


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:
