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

David Murphy, Green Beret... NOT!!

Ranger, Special Forces, Delta, CIA

David Murphy, Green Beret… NOT!!

This case is still being worked on as we speak. We will add to it and comment on the pictures as more info comes in.

Where to begin… Let me grab a coffee…

David Murphy was sent to us by someone very close to him with questions about his claims. We took a look at his pictures and statements on a few of them and knew immediately that most, if not all he was saying was a lie. 

A few of his claims are 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, Infantry Blue Cord, Jungle Expert Badge, Air Assault, Pathfinder, Jump Master, Sniper, Army Ordnance, Ranger Tab (2nd in class in 76) and also shares a picture of Graduation Ranger class 177-2. He went through twice? 101st Combat Patch, 1st Special Forces Grp, 5th Special Forces Group, CAG, Trainer at USASOC, CIA, Combat Wounded Veteran 

Claims to have been a Teammate and friend of SFC Randy Shughart (Medal of Honor) and MSG Gary Gordon (Medal of Honor).

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

WHAT WE KNOW:

He's not in the Distinguished Service Cross or Silver Star database.

David shares 2 pictures claiming to have graduated Ranger school. One in 1976 and one in 1977, The Class number he uses for his Ranger Class 177-2  isn't how classes are numbered. That being said, we did verify with RTB and they confirmed David Murphy never attended, much less graduated Ranger school. He shares a picture from 1977 claiming it as a graduation picture. We have contacted two people in that picture and the picture was taken at Ft Lewis in 80/81. Not in 1977 as he claims. It's a number of Ranger medics. We have acquired all the names of those in the picture. David Murphy IS NOT one of them.

He claims ODA 1220 in 1993. Four digit ODA's didn't come about until 2008/9

He claims CAG teammate of SFC Randy Shughart (Medal of Honor) and MSG Gary Gordon (Medal of Honor). He should be ashamed of himself. We contacted a brother that was there that day. Who served side by side with Gordon and Shurghart. He confirmed what we already knew. David Murphy was NEVER in that unit.

He claims to have been a USASOC instructor since 1976. USASOC didn't come to be until 1988.

David Murphy also claims to have been CIA. WE contacted an asset who's former CIA and he confirmed those CIA certificates are bogus.

We tried to straighten this out over the phone and he hung up on us twice. He said he had the papers to prove he's legit. We asked David to help us straighten this out and he chose not to.

You'll need to expand the picture section as we have almost 60 pictures in there on him.

David Murphey, you'll forever be added to Guardians of the Green Beret Hall of Fakes, Frauds, and Phonies.

VFW Post 10226 voted unanimously at it's monthly meeting tonight to revoke his membership and he is also banned for life from the building. Now he will have to hang out at the Chuckee Cheese soda fountain and tell all the 8 year olds about his good old days in SF. But then again the 8 year olds will probably say "Dude, shut the f#ck up. You're a poser. Now pour me another orange soda".

JMoff67:

I can tell you for a fact that he has never been to the VA for any treatments. He actually told me that he cant go to one( supposedly because the government was denying his existence due to covert mission involvement) he does not have a real vetrans ID either. If he is carrying one, it's fake. I'd love to know what name he has on it. Recently in Texas he has been going by the name Alex ( which I believe is actually the name of the guy at the Sky bar down in Florida where they put on a fund raiser for him under the false pretense that he was ex-special forces wounded in combat.)

Salt Life Vet:

Unfortunately I know this turd. He was a real black eye for the VFW post on Oak Island. Thank God he is no longer a part of it. Many of us knew he was a liar and fraud about many things, Nice to finally officially know the truth. He will soon have his VFW cred's revoked and the American legion has also dropped him from the rolls. Great work guys. Thank you for maintaining the honor and beauty of that wonderful head gear known as the Green Beret and the bravery and valor of the unique men who have the privilege of wearing it. Keep it up!

Chupacabra71:

I saw this article and it made my blood boil. My dad wasn't a Green Beret, he was in the Air Force. He went to Vietnam 1964, 1971 and a smaller stint between the two tours. Those who go to war do not brag about what they did in the war. Those who flaunt their "accomplishments" are more likely than not, fake. I know of someone who tells everyone, including his sons and now grandkids, that he is a Green Beret that served in Vietnam and received medals. In 1972 (i eill need to verify the year), he joined the Reserves so to not be drafted for Vietnam. Can you guys help me find the truth?

vet4life:

I got on to this site because I know of this AKA Romero Antonio Noel person. I don't know the man personally but I know people who do. I just cant wrap my hands around this cause it does not make any sense to me. He has a veteran Id and goes to the VA clinic. I don't know just really confused on all of this stuff. if anyone can shed some light on this for me and others I would greatly appreciate it. thank you.

Humbled:

Disgusting!!! The law needs to be tweaked to make it a crime whereas simply wearing the insignia is punishable. I, regrettably, never had the honor os serving in our Armed Forces due to starting my career fresh out of high school. These stories, make me nauseous. Do NOT, under any circumstances, take away from the brave men and women the serve admirably and EARN the credentials that they acquire. Keep up the good work outing these frauds

WJ Adams:

At some point, people posing as Special Forces / Green Beret soldiers, and similar posers need to serve some serious jail time. This is FRAUD, plain and simple. They do it for prestige, respect, and/or financial gain, and other reasons, which is the very criteria for all types of fraud in our country, and others. This guy should be locked up, his tattoo covered over by some volunteer tatoo artist that would probably be glad to do it, especially around a military base.

FRAUD.

The Guardian:

Yes Craig. We thank Jeff for his service and for the help he gave us in working this Ike Catcher case.

Craig:

SF Green Beret Jeff B, who you refer to in the article, is my son. He is the toughest man I’ve ever known. He is also the gentlest, kindest, and most caring man I’ve ever known.

Most sons aspire to be like their father. I aspire to be like my son. The day he signed for the Army he became the man I wish I could have been.

Graduation day as a Green Beret, he was my proof that an average good man can raise a great man.

I love you, Jeff.

Jonathanussf:

I don't know him or even have any relatives near him, but it still rips me that he smears my families good name. Poser....
