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

Richard Davis, Green Beret... NOT!!

We were sent Richard Davis by a fellow member of a Marine Corps League that they both belonged to.

You can hear the phone conversation with Richard here.

He stated Richard would talk down to people because “He was a Green Beret”.

He also sent along a link to a news article that had Richard claiming to have been Marine Corp “Spec Ops” in addition to Special Forces that was a POW in Hanoi.

We took one look at his picture and knew he was bogus. He claimed to have been in Marine Corp “Spec Ops” and also Airborne, Ranger, Green Beret that earned 2 Combat Infantry Badges, a Purple Heart, and was a POW that escaped from a POW camp in Hanoi, that saw 2 of his friends die that day during the escape.

Richard was never in the Marines. His Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) 76Y Unit Supply Would not qualify him to be awarded a Combat Infantry Badge, although one does appear in his records. He did NOT receive a Purple Heart. He was NOT a POW. He was Not Airborne, Not a Ranger, Not special Forces.

He claimed SF from 66-72 in the phone call we had with him. 

He claimed he’d swear on “His Mother and Fathers grave”

He claimed to have been a POW for 68 days, claimed to have escaped, and then said 2 of his buddies died that day.

He said he didn’t realize his CIB had a star on it… ????

Richard Davis, you’ll now be added to guardians of the Green Beret Hall of Fakes, Frauds, and Phonies.

Zero?

First of all, thank you folks for what you do, what you’ve done, and what you’re willing to do.

Secondly, it is my hope that Mr Prouix owns up to his lies. I have been watching this story and it disgusts me that there are people who would assume to receive the accolades deserved, but never sought, by better, braver, stronger men.

Mr Prouix needs to be exposed. Well done.

EVERYTHINGREALLY:

This is almost unbelievable. This guy wanted to be a Green Beret so bad he faked it to the grave. It must have been awesome to him to take on a persona. Feeling like a hero, getting recognition, and being treated like a hero in addition to fellowship with real warriors was too much to pass up. It must have felt good. I'm sure he could have joined the military. He just didn't think it was worth it. He could have everything without dropping a single iota of blood, sweat, or tears. I feel sorry for his family. This guy is to me obviously mentally ill. I guess he never thought he would hurt and shame his family to the extent he ended up doing so. To any potential fakers. Let this guy be a lesson to you. If you want what we have, just join the military. Don't do this to your family and friends.

EVERYTHINGREALLY:

I just want to thank Guardians of the Green Beret. I had no idea this problem was so widespread. These phonies do a great disservice to all us real Green Berets. Yes, I am a Green Beret. They give a false representation of who we are, what we are, and what we represent. These phonies are almost always criminal otherwise in my opinion. Good job Guardians of the Green Beret. People probably don't realize what it would be like for me to ever actually meet a phony Green Beret. Offensive is not the word. I don't think there is a word for all the things that would go through my mind.

guywholikesgbsalot:

is that white shirt even a thing? i never knew that

Johnny O:

Ol' "Sarge" here talking all kinds of crap and stuff after he was exposed...LOL

Johnny O:

It's really pathetic that people try to get away with this type of stuff. I spent 23 years in the Army and retired in 2006 and although would have loved to to be a part of a Special Forces or Ranger unit and go through all of the training, never did it. And it just amazes me the lengths that people will go through to embellish military service.

Jacob Martin:

Question: There's a photo of him with two "fatboys" wearing berets, are either of them actually SF? The one in the middle sure doesn't wear his beret correctly (might be an officer)! lol

LoriKat:

Impressive bio. Rambo, Ralph Macchio (Karate Kid) and Chuck Norris all rolled into one. They have a song named for him "Superman, Where Are You Now".

LoriKat:

I don't know much about a military uniform BUT his pants are WAY too long...they bunch up on tops of his shoes and basically drag the ground in the back. Also, there was a pic of him with a lady...outside...without a cover. Hmm.
