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

Richard Vallejos, Airborne, Ranger, Combat Diver, MSG, Green Beret… NOT!!

Richard Vallejos, Fake Green Beret was sent to us by someone  (Thanks TMG) watching him talk about his SF time on twitter.

She reached out to him and established dialog which we share in the picture section.

He claims:

CCQ Instructor, Does he mean CQC (Close Quarters Combat)? either way, FALSE

Defensive Tactics Instructor, FALSE



10th SFG(A), FALSE

ODA Team Leader, FALSE

Combat Diver, FALSE

Jumpmaster, FALSE

Ranger, FALSE

Master Sergeant, FALSE

Green Beret, FALSE

Non Airborne SFC Fake Ranger, Fake Green Beret, TRUE

In the screen shots below… The ones that are numbered White 5-5c are initial dialog when a female reached out to him. Blue 6-6a are when a Green Beret reached out. Yellow 7-7e are when he realized she was thinking he was full of it and he started getting defensive. He then went to blocking people and later to shouting down his account all together. By then, we already had screen shots saved.

We see him wearing an SF Combat Patch. You’d think someone that earned that would know what color the Airborne Tab should be. 

We got his records and it looks like he wasn’t even Airborne. Why someone who served honorably would want to soil their legacy is beyond us?

We see he spent most of his time as a 13B Cannon Crew member and then became a 79T Recruit/Retention NCO. It also looks like he self promoted himself to Master Sergeant (E-8), as we see his records show SFC (E-7)

Richard Vallejos you’ll now be added to Hall of Zeroes, fakes, Frauds, and phonies.

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

U.S. Naval Aircrewman (90-95):

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.
