Today we revisit Patrick Joseph Flores. 👉 Click here for Pat's phone confession.👈 The reason we are doing him again is he's back on social media under the alias's of Atticus Howard and Lucius Montana. LMAO
He originally came under our radar a few years ago when Someone sent us a picture of 3 guys at some type of gathering.
We messaged him and he quickly removed the picture from his wall. We had other cases going at the time and somehow Pat the fell through the cracks.
At the bottom of the picture section, you might see a red bar. Click that and many more pictures appear.
Fast forward 2 years and he was commenting in our Guardians forum on Facebook about other frauds. It seems some of what he said wasn't adding up and he was called out by a legit Green Beret, with him replying that we vetted him years ago, in a since removed comment... that was not the case.
We messaged him and he indeed claimed to be an SF qualified officer. He said he didn’t go through Robin Sage or Phase 4 and 5 but was still SFQ’d. He also continued to claim he was a Ranger He even gave an exact Ranger class of 4-79. We reached out to RTB and they quickly confirmed what we thought. Patrick Flores was NOT a Ranger either. They checked that class, every other class in 1979, 78, and 80. Nobody by the name of Patrick Joseph Flores graduated Ranger school.
Concerning his SF Claims if you don’t complete the Q-course, you aren’t SF. Problem 2, back in the timeframe he claimed to have done the course, it was only 3 Phases. Anybody that went through the course would know that. When this was pointed out, Patrick eventually came clean and sent an apology email to us.
Before the email came, his story got real strange and so far fetch. he was trying to claim he was a Jason Borne type individual
He replied with the NSA erased his military history (spit) because he was doing stuff he can’t talk about. His exact words were:
I'm going to tell you something I have never told anyone on FB. In 1984, I was an 03. I was recruited by a government agency (which shall remain Un-said). I was sent to A Co., 3rd Bn., 1st Special Warfare Training Group for CAO training. Upon completion I was reassigned to the National Security Advisor's Team, headed by Robert McFarlane, the NSA to President Reagan. I no longer reported to anyone in the United States Army...not the 7th Group, not any military-related entity. NSA completely erased any history of my life prior to heading off to San Salvador where I worked in concert with Lt. Colonel Staben, and President Duarte. I saved my commissioning and some of my certificates and of course, military pictures just so I can remember who and what I once was.
I spent the rest of my GS life in the intelligence community in operations. I had nothing to do with anyone from my old units nor did I join any associations. Only a select few knew me before I left the army. I just joined FB two years ago and in my profile I do not mention any special training or not too much of anything else. I should have never come out from the cold. For not mentioning anything... He sure mentions a lot and wears a lot on his hats and shirts
So, We posted him in Guardians and at this point he claimed that his name was fake, his pictures were fake, he can’t talk about it, yet we confirmed he was indeed Pat Flores through people that used to work with him, relatives of his , and a legit Green Beret that had meet him while this was going on.
It seems he wasn’t able to convince people he was really a Jason Borne type dude , and finally shut his account down only to reemerge under the fake ones mentioned earlier. Those were also confirmed by one of his relatives.
