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

Mayor Jack Pratt, Green Beret... NOT!!

He used those claims....

Meet Mayor Jack Pratt Green Beret POSer and former mayor

Kerrville Texas: Jack Pratt Jr. narrowly won the mayor’s seat in 2012 by touting himself as a skilled financial consultant, former business exec and veteran of multiple Army tours in Vietnam with U.S. Special Forces. His military records indicate he spent nearly eight years in the Army but just seven weeks in Vietnam as a personnel supervisor before leaving the service as a Staff Sergeant in 1971.
Pratt claims to have a masters in business administration from the University of Hawaii. Officials there say they have no record of him attending its Shidler College of Business.Pratt, 73, denied that he embellished his resume but declined to provide documents to substantiate his claimed achievements.“I’m not going to help you with any of this because you’re trying to crucify me,” he said last week. “I don’t need to confirm my personal history.”He drew “Vietnam service combat pay during the years 1967, '68, '69 and '71,” he said in an email that also indicated he was “attached and/or TDY with Special Forces.”
National Personnel Records Center documents say Pratt was a radio operator in Germany in 1964, a personnel sergeant in Thailand from 1967 to 1969 and in Vietnam from May 25 to July 15, 1971.The mayor owes the community an explanation, City Councilman Gene Allen said, calling the inconsistencies “alarming.” “Certainly, I have heard and I communicated it to others that the mayor had served four tours in Vietnam with Special Forces,” Taylor said. “To me, that’s kind of awe-inspiring. It’s a pretty incredible record.”
But the vagueness of many entries in Pratt’s online profiles have long fueled skepticism.
Alan Hill, director of the Hill Country Veterans Center, says Pratt twice told him of serving four tours of duty as a Green Beret in Vietnam. A dubious Hill, himself a three-tour Vietnam veteran, obtained Pratt’s military records and now calls him “a wannabe Special Forces.”
Hill, 70, denied any political motive in his criticism, saying, “It has nothing to do with him being the mayor.”
“He needs to come clean,” Allen said. “If they can’t be adequately explained, it’s a sad day for Kerrville.

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".

JMoff67:

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!

Chupacabra71:

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?

vet4life:

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.

Humbled:

Disgusting!!! The law needs to be tweaked to make it a crime whereas simply wearing the insignia is punishable. I, regrettably, never had the honor os serving in our Armed Forces due to starting my career fresh out of high school. These stories, make me nauseous. Do NOT, under any circumstances, take away from the brave men and women the serve admirably and EARN the credentials that they acquire. Keep up the good work outing these frauds

WJ Adams:

At some point, people posing as Special Forces / Green Beret soldiers, and similar posers need to serve some serious jail time. This is FRAUD, plain and simple. They do it for prestige, respect, and/or financial gain, and other reasons, which is the very criteria for all types of fraud in our country, and others. This guy should be locked up, his tattoo covered over by some volunteer tatoo artist that would probably be glad to do it, especially around a military base.

FRAUD.

The Guardian:

Yes Craig. We thank Jeff for his service and for the help he gave us in working this Ike Catcher case.

Craig:

SF Green Beret Jeff B, who you refer to in the article, is my son. He is the toughest man I’ve ever known. He is also the gentlest, kindest, and most caring man I’ve ever known.

Most sons aspire to be like their father. I aspire to be like my son. The day he signed for the Army he became the man I wish I could have been.

Graduation day as a Green Beret, he was my proof that an average good man can raise a great man.

I love you, Jeff.

Jonathanussf:

I don't know him or even have any relatives near him, but it still rips me that he smears my families good name. Poser....
