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

JOE ALVARADO, Green Beret... NOT!!

Ranger, 3 PH, BS, SS, Special Forces...... Not

MEET JOE  ALVARADO... He falsely "Claims" :

 

18 Yrs Total (His claim) False

1SG, 31C, 18E, AND 18Z (His claim) False

1/75th Ranger Bn (His claim) False

10th SFG(A) (His claim) False

3 PH's, SS, and BS (His claim) False

ALL THE CLAIMS ABOVE ARE BOGUS

Joe was sent to us by a friend in Arizona back in 2010.  It seems he was claiming many things, Ranger, SF, 3 PHs, BS, SS....... All false.

He also claimed to have won $92,000,000 in the lottery and was borrowing money off people with a promise to repay double when he got his money.

We could find no-one that knew him and his timeline wasn't adding up. 

He was USAR/USANG from '83 to '88 and Active duty from '88 to '92

Fairly long time to be discharged as a Specialist.

No records of him graduating from either SFQC or Ranger School.

We did find some other records, however they are of the criminal type.

The person who originally contacted us in early 2011 stated he was going around Phoenix Arizona claiming to have won $46,000,000 (then changed to $92,000,000).

He had many many people duped into believing his lies. In fact one individual (believing they would be repaid and some) purchased him 2 cars.

He was given free room and board while perpetuating these lies, always having an excuse why his check hadn't arrived yet.

 He even had the MOPH duped as he rode in a parade with them claiming to be a PH recipient.

After we busted him the 1st time, he went to prison for 2 years, got out and immediately got himself the new Ranger tat. Two years of prison didn't slow him down a bit.

Be aware of this Green Beret POSer, Fraud and con man. He'll take your money.

Joe Alvarado, you'll forever be added to the Guardians of The Green Beret Hall of Shame and you also will rank in our Top 10 area.

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

https://www.rudigresham.com, 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.

SOF VETTE:

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.

FRANCO K WEBB IS A GREEN BERET FRAUD

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?

RobertEddy:

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.
