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

Papotia Reginald Wright, Green Beret… NOT!!

On some formats, you'll need to click on the red line at bottom of pictures to expnad more pictures.

We were sent Reggie a few months ago and had his records within 4 days. We knew before we had his records that he was no Green Beret.

You can see a Fox News video on our work in this link.

One of our investigators (Brian) actually talked to “CSM” Wright on the phone. Reggie told him that he was given permission by SWC @ Ft Bragg, to use the term 8th Special Forces Regiment. We can’t find anybody at Bragg to agree with that statement. Also, Reggie has not shown us the email from Ft Bragg allowing him to use the term.

We called their business and talked to an individual that said Reggie wasn’t there. Well, it turns out he was indeed there and was standing next to the guy. Reggie said “if they ask for me, I’m not here and take a message”

We continued to try and make contact with Reggie and/or “Major” Tammy Feliciano. She claims to be the S-1 at the “8th SF Regiment”. She will NOT answer the number given to us as her contact. We have yet to verify if she’s ever served a day in the service. We do know that she and Reggie are living together and have a kid together.

At this time, we’ve not been able to find 8th Special Forces Regiment New York Honor Guard VSO as a registered VSO, or a 501c3. We asked who was on the board and that wasn’t provided. We will gladly correct this statement when “CSM” Reggie or “Major” Tammy pride the evidence they are a legit non profit. 

We had a meeting set up but Reggie got wind that he was being exposed and decided to stay away from the office.

We see a few charges that show open in S.C. for obtaining property by false pretense. When that was brought up to the “8th Special Forces Regiment Honor Guard VSO”, they provided a screen shot that both cases had been closed. The case numbers seem to match.

“CSM” Reggie claims to have had 25 years in Special Operations Command and told our investigator that he served in 5th SFG(A). In the bio he posted on his website www.8thspecialforcesregiment.com under the “Command” section he claims: 

The Bronze Star = False

Purple Heart = False

Meritorious Service Medal = False

Army Commendation Medal with “V” device = False

Army Achievement Medal = Earned

Army Good Conduct Medal = It shows Army Good Conduct Medal 2nd Award

Army Reserve Components Achievement Medal = False

National Defense Service Medal = False

Multi-National Defense Medal = False

Kosovo Campaign Medal = False

Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal = False

Afghanistan Campaign Medal with 3 Campaign Stars = False

Iraq Campaign Medal w/ one Campaign Star = False

Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal = False

Global War on Terror Service Medal = False

NATO Medal = False

Non-Commissioned Officers Professional Development Ribbon = False

Army Service Ribbon = Earned

Special Forces Tab = False

Combat Infantryman’s Badge = False

Airborne Tab = False

Air Assault Tab = False

Military Free-Fall Badge = False

Command Sergeant Major = False 

He didn’t mention:

Overseas Service Ribbon 2nd Award = Earned 

Driver and Mechanic Badge = Earned

Driver Wheeled Vehicle = Earned

Well…. according to his records, he spent roughly 7 years in the service and ETS’d an E-4. 

We still have locals in the area working the case with a local news media source and will update when we have more info. 

Papotia Reginald Wright, you'll now be added to Guardians of the Green Beret Hall of Fakes, Frauds, and Phonies.

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

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 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 .

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!

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

bosljeff:

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".

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!

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.
