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.

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

SuperUser Account:

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

william frank grist:

Great site I am glad to see it in operation. William Frank Grist SF

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

He's also a registered sex offender....and a scum bag.

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

I think this is well known by this point - but for added extra bonus actually is a REAL registered sex offender. This guy is a danger to the community in a multitude of ways & he shows no shame or remorse & he's also a real d-bag. He needs to get locked up.

Brian M Whitney:

Is he still getting 100% disability or was he ever? Whats the deal with this story?

Don Canaday:

Every time some faker claiming to be SF gets in trouble or acts up, it can reflect badly on us in the media. Another reason to point them out when they present themselves.

DZKLAY62:

Wow! I am stupefied that a sex offender would expose himself to so much attention and expect the truth to not come out...

DZKLAY62:

I refuse to believe any SF or Operator would wear that bow tie, just saying.
