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

Justin Stargardt, Airborne, Ranger, Sniper, SEAL, LTC, Green Beret... NOT!!

Capt, Major, LTC, CDQC, Airborne, SEAL, Ranger, Special Forces............

.Justin Stargardt was sent to us by a female whose friend was being harassed by him. She sent us screen shots of his claims, pictures of his Certs and Medals. .

Click on the red bar at the bottom of pictures to see many more, if you don't see them all.

We knew in a millisecond this guy was bogus.

We reached out to those that grew up with him, worked with him, and served with him.

His co-workers said he would change rank with the weather..... One day an O-3, the next an O-4 depending on how he felt.

We were able to establish a phone call with him and the link to it is below.

Justin Stargardt's Phone confession 

Justin was in the Marines and Army for a short time. On the phone call, he said he was a Corporal in the USMC. We hadn't recieved his records yet so we couldn't correct that lie on the phone call. 

Most of all in his Shadow box he shows people is NOT earned. Most of the Certificates he has created himself are also not earned.


Justin Stargardt, Fake Ranger, fake SEAL, Fake Sniper, Fake LEO, Fake Capt, Fale Major, Fake LTC, Fake Delta, Fale Green Beret, you'll forever have a place in The Guardians of The Green Beret Hall of Fakes and Frauds.

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

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.


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


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


Usually when I see a guy with this much shite on a vest, jacket and hats he does not pass the smell test. If you screaming that loud "look at me I am a hero" you probably aren't.


I guess he spent 1 year and 5 months as a pivot man and is trying to reclaim his dignity. Sorry never going to happen now.
