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

Horace Jackson, Green Beret... NOT!!

We were sent Horace Jackson the fake Green Beret in 2020 during the Covid shut down. Although we knew he was a fraud as soon as we watched the video, we couldn't move forward without records. That's just how we do things.

Well, records came back and they confirmed what we already knew.

Here you can read about the fake GB and him receiving his chair from the KTLA website:

Corona firefighters surprised a Vietnam War veteran with a new electric wheelchair Thursday after seeing him struggling to get around.

Horace Jackson, a decorated veteran who served in the U.S. Army Special Forces, is a paraplegic who lives alone, according to a Corona Fire Department news release. Occasionally, firefighters respond to his home for medical and public service calls, 

Recently, firefighters noticed that the 74-year-old was having difficulty with his old wheelchair. They saw Jackson’s hands were bloodied and blistered from the broken wheelchair, which he’d had for years, the release said. 

 Jackson explained that the VA only provides veterans with a basic wheelchair, and funds for a replacement every two years, according to the Fire Department. 

Firefighters were moved to action and decided to raise money through the agency’s benevolent fund to buy him a new wheelchair.

The fund “is money raised and donated by firefighters and given back to those in need in our community,” a statement from the Corona Firefighters Association explained.

They presented Jackson with his new and improved wheels on Thursday. When asked where the first place he would go with it, a smiling Jackson told KTLA, “I guess a coffee shop. Starbucks.”

Horace Jackson the fake Green Beret claimed 1000 Airborne Jumps with 9 in combat. Damn...

None of that is true. He spent more time AWOL and as a Deserter than he did serving his county.




This is the 2-1 of Horace Jackson the fake Green Beret

Below is how we read it. If you see a difference, email us.








26 Jan 66 Enters Army

1 Feb 66 Starts Basic Training

1 Apr 66 Heads to AIT 72B Ft Gordon

16 Apr 66 Goes AWOL for the 1st time

2 Jun 66 Starts AIT again 72B Ft Gordon

26 Aug 66 heads to Europe but it looks like he didn't make it because in

12 Feb 67 he's a Duty Soldier 57A1 still at Ft Gordon 

20 Jul 67 hard to read en route to? Ft Lee AWOL

28 Jul 67 he's a Duty Soldier 57A1 Far-right dropped from rolls (Deserter)

1 Sep 67 Dropped from Rolls Desertion

5 Dec 67 57A1) Duty Soldier Spec Proc Det (In Jail?) Ft Rucker

29 Apr 68 76Y20 Probably gave him Sup Sp MOS while in Jail?

3 Dec 68 76Y20 Same location different unit

4 Apr 69 Enroute to Vietnam

8 May 69 95B10 Looks like he was reduced in rank and is now a Security Guard, although we see no training for that. What is CDY on the far-right column under reason?

30 Jun 69 95B20 and goes AWOL again

7 Dec 69 Dropped from Rolls


 Horace Jackson the fake Green Beret spent more time jumping from his duty than he did Jumping from Aircraft. Hell, he wasn't even Airborne.

It's a shame KTLA won't return our calls or emails. Too often news stations and reporters are ashamed to admit they were duped and then too stubborn to correct the mistake.

Some cases are easier than others. This was one of those. It was too easy, we just had to wait on records.

Horace Jackson, you'll now be added to hall of zeroes forever.

#HoraceJackson, #HoraceRJackson.

This news is pretty sad for me because I knew the guy. The 1998 overwrite should read that he was the commander of C Troop, 1-18 Cav. I don't recall him wearing any tabs or badges. I am glad that a 19th Group (Guard) guy brought this to your attention. To me this casts a shadow of suspicion with anybody in the Guard. He left the Guard prior to GWOT. I think that the Guard did our share in GWOT with multiple mobilizations and deployments. I was mobilized twice, including a year in Afghanistan as an Infantryman. Now I'll wonder if people will think I'm a liar if I say anything about my service. Thanks Eddie...

Scott Berndt:

Talk about a disgrace to the uniform! I can't believe he got away with the fraud all those years. If you go to his website at, it still makes it sound like he has an Army SF background without stating he was one. He even has awards issued by several SF organizations. Sounds like the GotGB still have some hunting to do.

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

Wow. Absolutely mind blowing & disgraceful. They should make a documentary about how this turd BS'd his way through the years in order to be in a position to be standing next to Presidents, politicians & celebritys. I get pissed when I think of all the others like him but that have never gotten exposed or caught. Great job catching this s--t turd.

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

You can tell just by looking at him that he is a shit bird.

Royal Mons:

If these phonies want to play dress up they should join a re-enactment society and not lie about their fantasies and live off the sacrifice of others.


FRANCO K WEBB is a LYING POSER. He and I were BEST FRIENDS during the time he CLAIMS 7th GP 18D (MY MOS and MY Duty assignment - ODA 755/754, O&I, SWC G Co SFAS, 1st Bn S3).

He was NEVER ASSOCIATED WITH, ASSIGNED TO, in SUPPORT OF, or attended ANY TRAINING that would qualify his claim of being an 18D.

He was a CAR STEREO SALESMAN and INSTALLER on Yadkin Road the ENTIRE TIME I KNEW HIM. We were in Westarea Fire Department TOGETHER and he lived in a trailer on Haretown road.

It APPEARS that he has taken some of MY SF TRAINING, HISTORY and BACKGROUND, claimed it as his own, and further EMBELLISHED those stories for his own video game centered bravado.


SuperUser Account:

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.

SGT P - Rakkasan:

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.
