No information in this article, No names, addresses (if shared) are either with permission or old addresses no longer in use, phone numbers (if shared), contact info (if share), statements, documents has been shared without permission from those it was received from. George's military records were received via FOIA from NPRC. The same as all other records we share in our articles.

This is a case we've had for far too long yet never seem to have to time to finish it. Well, on 4/21/18, we received another email that George and Eva Davila were still running the lie so we decided we had to move this back up to the front and work it until finished. Below is an email we received from Roland, husband of Jennifer, Executive Director of the Green Beret Foundation:

Eva Davila introduced herself to my wife (Jennifer) at a local rotary club meeting as a 20th SFG wife.  As the Executive Director of the Green Beret Foundation and leader of a program called “Steel Mags” created for SF wives, Jen was interested in learning more about another SF wife in the San Antonio area.  

George Davila introduced himself to my wife, other GBF employees, and myself as a former 18C from Maryland 20th SFG.  

George used his association with the El Paso Chapter of the SFA to establish his background as an SF soldier in the San Antonio region. George claimed his brother was the El Paso chapter lead (President).  

My wife wanted to meet a mother of 2 SF soldiers for the Steel Mags and was told “I was the smart one and joined the NG and my brother is the dumb one going AD with 7th SFG” and claimed their mother was dead.

George has been published multiple times in the media as a 20 year veteran on the 20th SFG. 

We started to realize that mutual acquaintances we should have from 20th SFG did not know George.  

We started a FOIA investigation (Via  due to multiple discrepancies.  

The FOIA request found no records twice within the NPCR database, we are conducting a 3rd search now and requesting an official letter of no records found. (GOTGB finally received a result on the 3rd request)

We asked with the SF community of 5500+ SF soldiers (A forum called SF Brothers) if anyone had served with George and could attest to his service.  No one can attest to it.

We reached out to his supposed brother from the El Paso SFA chapter and have been told that they met in 2013 for the first time at the SFA convention in San Antonio.  They are not blood related but have become good friends for the past 3 years.  This person, Pete (Removed last name), claims to have never discussed military service with George and cannot attest to 18 series claims.

Pete made George aware of our investigation and George is refusing to provide any documentation of his military service claiming this is a witch hunt.  

George has been made aware of our inability to find him in the NPCR database and told us that his records exist, but cannot be accessed online or through FOIA requests despite claims of service from 1987-2006 and retirement with 19 yrs and 2 months in service.

George showed military records to one SF soldier by the name of Dave (Removed last name) yesterday, but will not allow any copies to be made.  Dave was able to verify the SSN we are using is correct and states that the records appear to be “wrong”.

George continues to refuse to provide his DD214 or any record in a verifiable format, to include is military ID.  Although he verified that we have the correct DOB, SSN, and name.  

George has retracted his statement of being SF and is currently using the following story, stating that is it very embarrassing to him, which is why he does not want his records seen: He was a National Guard MP with allegations of spousal abuse. He RCP’d out of the NG, but was told he could go to the reserves.  He became Counter Intelligence with the reserves and guarded a SCIF.  Then he switched to Civil Affairs and filled in for an 18F with a team from 20th SFG.  George disagreed with a O-6 in AFG because "too many guys got killed and the Colonel wanted to send more guys to die” so he assaulted him.  Despite assaulting the Colonel, he was never given an article 15 because everyone felt he was justified in his outrage.,  but this lead to him being removed from the Army. - I don’t think I need to point out the holes in this current claim.  

George claims to have “saved the life” of Marty (Removed last name), a 20th SFG soldier in 2003.  Marty is a friend and previous SOCOM LNO who helped me at Walter Reed, so I contacted him and Marty does not know George. Marty stated that they had an 18F on their team, so no CA guy would have been used.

We have come to find out that the Davila’s currently have multiple allegations of theft/embezzlement from foundations.  One being the GBF as prior to Eva’s association with the foundation the Davila’s won an auction item at a fundraiser for $500.  They took the item and bounced the check to the auctioneer.  We recently checked with the auctioneer who states that Eva told him that she had recently undergone surgery and a divorce and she could not afford it.  We know this to not be true.  They have been married for 13+ years. Yesterday Eva told my wife that they paid for the auction item.  

 We are continuing to find other individuals that have been mislead by false claims.  20th SFG is checking their paper archives today, but was unable to find George in their online database.  There are many issues with their story and recent interactions with foundations around San Antonio.  

Please let me know if I can provide any further information and apologies for any conjecture and “he said, she said” that is an unavoidable aspect of these potential stolen valor cases.  There are many more statements and actions of theirs in question at the moment, but I have attempted to not turn this into a high school drama.  I am 100% sure you have real issues to deal with that are far more important.

Thank you,

Roland (Removed)

Soooo, that's the foundation to this article. Here's what we know:

Both George Davila and his wife Eva Davila have on multiple occasions, and for years claimed that George Davila was an 18C Special Forces Engineer Sergeant, an 18F SF Intel Sergeant, that he received the Bronze Star for heroic actions that should have been a Silver Star or higher, and that he served in the 20th SFG(A)... ALL FALSE

Since we started this investigation, we've contacted many that have been associated with the Davila's. ALL we have talked to have heard them say he was an 18C/18F and was a Green Beret in the 20th. That in and of itself would have been enough for us to do an article on him. But... It seems Eva Davila was a huge part of his lie also, and when the SHTF at the Green Beret Foundation, Eva was overheard on a call to George that "They are onto us".  

Usually we don't involve friends and family, but in this case, we know beyond doubt that Eva Davila was a significant part of the deceit and charade that helped the Davila's infiltrate the SF and Military community in and around San Antonio. Thus enabling them to gain financially using those false claims.

Here is a statement from Dave MXXXXXXX on what George told him on the day he saw George Davila'a records:

Davila also stated that he was accused of Spouse Abuse in the 80s and
was RCP'd out of the service.

Davila also said that his "embarrassing" issue that got him sent home
was that, "I told a Full Bird Colonel that he was risking the lives of
his men and I shoved him with his shoulder.  They considered that
assault on a superior officer and I got a field grade article 15."


George Davila was NEVER a Green Beret of any kind

He was:

NEVER an 18C

NEVER an 18F

NEVER in the 20th Special Forces Group

NEVER even Airborne

NEVER saved the life of Marty XXXXXXXX

NEVER almost received the Silver Star "or higher" as he claims

NEVER spent 20 years in the service as he claims

NEVER even attempted the Special Forces Qualification course as he claims when he was giving advice to a young man getting ready to go.

NEVER hit a COL as he claims. (how does he think anybody would even begin to believe that level 10 Bullshit)

IS NOT a blood brother with the same mom as the president of a local SFA Chapter as he claims (verified by the guy himself he said was his brother)

This guy was all around San Antonio, TX making his rounds selling himself as a Green Beret! When the questions about his service started to come in from common soldiers, it was quickly discovered that he was a complete fraud. No one at the San Antonio Silver Wings Airborne Association, Special Forces Association, has ever heard of him!

I really can’t describe the feeling I had when I once again did the periodic check online to see if Gilbert had been arrested yet.I strangely found comfort in the fact that he was not captured and brought back to Florida for his warrants there . I knew he was in Colorado somewhere but I never wanted him to come back to Florida with another slap on the wrist or turning CI to get out of trouble and I feel at danger again , however , I never really felt safe knowing he was out there at all. I was contacted months back by someone asking if I had seen him and making sure I was safe because he stated he was coming back to Florida and was on the run from the FBI I was told . I didn’t sleep for a month well after that. I can’t describe the terror I dealt with being involved with this person , the healing that is still taking place for myself and my children . He is a lifelong con man , he’s very convincing and by the time you realize the truth you are in danger and he’s extremely violent . Being a con man he hatches elaborate ways to tear your life apart , set you up , spread convincing and dangerous lies , he managed to blackmail me for things that he created for me out of fear and the cloud of abuse and threats from him for so long . I tried many agencies to help me no one believed me or did anything about him . He would re enter my home for a year telling lies and slandering me across the internet social media , with people even threatening me because they believed him he was so convincing . I slept with baseball bats and knives for years because of him. My children are still tormented because of things he did and said and the entire experience . I actually had to leave my job , my home and my children just to get away from him .

He has always lied about being in the military , he had me convinced of the same thing as well as everyone who knew him for a long long time , also lied about being in with Florida motorcycle gangs and would use that as a threat as well , he always stated he was SF and medic , said injured in Afghanistan and that’s why he has seizures , also not true , I found evidence of him lying to women on social media also impersonating a SF years ago , he had gotten pictures of soldiers with beards that looked very much like him and he knew a lot of the lingo and studied it , he also pretended to be a firefighter and ex firefighter to people as well. That was another of his cons . He always wore military type gear and shirts he would buy offline or from people or army navy store etc I actually still have a couple of them around Idk why , maybe to remind me of what I let happen to me and the damage it did so that I never allow that to ever happen to me again. He changed me then in terrible ways and I never could figure out how to get away or out of the situations . I never experienced someone like him - in no fool or naive , I have an experienced life but the extent he will go .... photoshopping pictures , editing fake text conversations etc making false reports to child protection agencies etc etc .... people believe him and he can turn your life upside down between that , setting you up and threats Therof and physical violence . He has also been to prison in Massachusetts or Missouri I believe for weapons and violence against another woman I found out later . He treats his mother and youngest daughter the same way with threats and control and violence , has 3 other children all in different states as well .... he’s mentally disturbed and dangerous and I am hoping they actually keep him for a very long time so my children and I can feel safe .

I’m so happy you guys were diligent and captured him . The alias he was using is someone that I know as well whom was in prison when he started using that alias .

Thank you for flushing him out and catching him . Thank you so much I can’t explain how I felt

Reading all of this , validating things for me in a way because I don’t think a lot of people where I’m from still believed me . His lies seemed too far fetched , details and convincing fake evidence , he had people coming after me thinking I was many many things and done things I had not as a way to intimidate me .

I have a damaged jaw , ptsd and still working to start my life over in every aspect and help my kids overcome the damage that he did to them . His name and face will haunt me probably for life and I’m sorry to the other woman who fell for this because I completely and truly understand how it happens and the web that he weaves . I’m happy no one got physically hurt and I will hope to see him get some serious time .

Yet another Piece of Shit phony. When will it stop?


Good Lord. 🤦🏻‍♂️

Salt Life Vet:

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".


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!


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?


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.
