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

Rauden "Rap" Peavy, Green Beret... NOT!!

Rap Peavy was sent to us by a fellow Green Beret who actually served with him in Vietnam, where he knew him as a rear-echelon radio repairman that was never issued a weapon.
He saw him on a YouTube video claiming to have served 3 tours in Vietnam as a Green Beret with 5th Special Forces, MACV SOG Black Ops. You can hear him in his own words 👉👉
 Rap Peavy in his own words 👈👈

He stated he was a Green Beret over the years in ads for his car lot. He clearly used his claim to be Special Forces to help with sales at his car lot.

We sent for his military records and see he has several accomplishments to be proud of, but being Special Forces (Green Beret) is not one of them. He wasn't even Airborne, which is a prerequisite to attend Special Forces Training.

While it is true he was stationed with 5th SF, CCC he was assigned to Special Forces as MOS (31S) Field General Communication Security Repairer and not as a member of any MACV SOG unit and not a Green Beret. Interestingly, due to the rules used during Vietnam, anyone serving with Special Forces for 120 days or longer and earned a Combat Infantry Badge (CIB) with that unit were considered a battle field Green Beret.

His military records do not show that he was awarded a CIB. Therefore, no retroactive award of SF TAB would be authorized, nor was he Airborne qualified. His MOS was (31S) Field General Communication Security Repairer.

Giving him the benefit of the doubt we tried several times, in vein, to contact him for an explanation of his Green Beret claims. Finally, we were able to contact him through one of his FB friends.

He admitted the video was a mistake and should have said he served with Special Forces but not as a Green Beret.

He has many things suggesting that he is a Green Beret on his Facebook page to include his Profile Picture with Special Forces patch and Long Tab over Old Man Clan tab.

His explanation for wearing Special Forces apparel is that he was honoring the time he serving with 5th Special Forces, Command and Control Central (CCC). Yet that wasn’t enough, he chose to cheapen those memories by pretending to be a Green Beret.

Rap Peavy you will now be added to Hall of Zeros.

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

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.
