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

ROMEO ANTONIO NOEL PAPICA III aka Ran Papica, Green Beret... NOT!!

Filipino Spec Ops, Ranger, Delta, SF, all false

We've been conducting a 16 month investigation on a person of interest who has been operating in the St.Pete/Tampa, Bradenton, Sarasota, Venice, Englewood, and North Port Florida areas for several years. 

Watch this video first: WWSB news clip on Ran Papica.

Our local assets in the area have uncovered many stories about the "mysterious" and "cryptic" RAN. We can confirmed with rock solid sources the following claims made by this individual:

Bushido Master, Samurai Warrior, United States Navy SEAL, C.I.A. Operative, PURPLE HEART RECIPIENT, United States Army Officer (Major and a Captain at the same time) in the Rangers, Airborne Jump Master, Delta Operator and Special Forces. Mr. Papica claims his amputated leg happened while on a Special Forces secret mission. 

Interestingly, Mr. Papica has told various people (who we have talked to) that his leg injury was caused by an IED, RPG, or from an automobile accident, depending on who he was talking to. It was none of the above. It was because he stepped on a rusty nail and the resulting complications associated with diabetes and infection because he never sought medical care. This was confirmed by his pastor to us over the phone. His pastor also confirmed that Ran Papica claimed to be in Special Forces for 14 years.


Furthermore, we made contact with two dojos that Mr. Papica had agreed to "offer his services" to. One in St. Petersburg and one in Sarasota, Florida. It came as no surprise to us that the leadership at both gyms knew "right away" that Mr. Papica's claims of being a "Samurai Warrior trained in the “Bushido Way" were complete nonsense. Both Dojos asked him to leave. The Sensei from the Dojo in St Petersburg said Ran Papica claimed to have been Philippine Special Operations for years before coming to the States. This was also confirmed by us over the phone.

We sent for his military records and the only Papica that came back in the results was a Korean war era vet. Ran Papica NEVER served a single day in the military.

On a side note, when we reached out to our friends at the POW Network, they produced a SEAL request from 2008, when they had sent to a SEAL contact they use asking if Ran was a SEAL. It seems in 2008, he had come under the radar of others as Ran Papica was claiming to be a SEAL.

We made contact with Ran Papica’s landlord and he also confirmed that Ran has claimed to be a secret squirrel SF operator for the time he knew him…… Ran has since bolted the area and left no forwarding address or contact info.

Ran has the history of asking people in places he is a member of for money, this has been confirmed by multiple people that would like to stay off the record. He’s been asked to leave those places because of his actions.

The Sarasota Sky Bar and Cafe held a fundraiser for Ran Papica based on his claims. They were holding a second, yet Ran got wind of our investigation and they canceled it. 

ROMEO ANTONIO NOEL "Ran"  PAPICA III, you’ll for ever be added to the Guardians of The Green Beret website as a Fake.

Zero?

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.

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.)

Brother Of Brian Magyar:

9 June 2020

Ya' know, instead of considering why someone does what he does, like assholes, ya' jump to foul comments about someone ya' never met, or know anything about ….

I'd call our parents white trash, but that would be an insult to white trash ….

Brain went into the United States Army after July 1975, after I went into the United States Navy in that July ….

We both got out of Boot in September of 75' ….

That was the last I ever saw of him ????

Neither of us wanted to go into the Military, but we were kicked out he house by our mother, to call her a mother is also an insult to all mothers ....

If you ever saw the movie " Mommy Dearest " , then ya' might have some idea what our childhood was like ….

The only thing that put the smile on our mother's face was when she was beating the living shit out of her boys, buckle end first ….

In the late sixties, early seventies, Brian and I never did drugs, alcohol, or commit any crimes ….

As a kid, Brian always wanted to be part of a group, gang, whatever ….

I loved karate, so I walked the path of bushido, honor and face above all ….

Always a team player, but still a loner ….

People tell me I'm a veteran, but I'm quick to say that in my eight years in the United States Navy, ( 1975-1979 active, - 1983 reserve ),

I never carried a gun, or, was ever in any danger ….

Most of it on sea duty, all fun and games, and going over seas, but, after all, sailors belong at sea ….

Just as I was getting off active duty, I made Second Class Petty Officer, IC-2, N.E.C. ( M.O.S.) 4713, telecommunications,,,,

telephone man ….

Honorably discharged, I display that along with my DD-214

I'm now sixty-three, and retiring from the telephone company ….

So,,, no comments about me ….

It's been forty-five years now ….

Brian is my younger brother, but I understand him just the same …..

Kind'a like a car salesman, he always needed that affirmation from others ….

He still needs what he never got from our mother,,,, to be loved, appreciated, admired, respected ….

As a kid, he loved the song " Ballard of the Green Berets " ….

He wasn't stealing glory, but imitating that which he admired the most in the United States Army,,,, the Green Berets ….

When I read the comments about Brain, as I suspect, real Green Berets, and other Army Special Forces,,,, are much like United States Marines, United States Navy Seals, and now Antifa protesters ….

And I met a few Marines and Seals ( claiming ) during my time in the Navy ….

They are only really tough when the other guy can't fight back, shit-for-brains bullies ….

My proof, Viet Nam, Granada, Fallujah, Pakistan ….

As far as I know, you tough guys never faced real Soviet, Chinese, Iranian, or any other real Special Forces on equal footing ….

Hell, the real Rambo's in Viet Nam was the Viet Cong …..

And they kicked the ( bull ) shit out of you smart mouth's ….

When I was aboard ship, the only time I found our who went to Viet Nam was during dress inspections, when they wore their ribbons on their chest ….

They never talked about it, I assume it was the most horrifying times of their lives ….

Had Brian had good parents, good home, good schooling, a good life, I have no doubt he would have proudly earned the ribbons on his chest ….

In the United States Navy, I only earned an overseas service ribbon, and a good conduct ribbon, which I never wore, but are now on my old Navy uniform for when I pass away ….

Brian is, and always will be my brother, we suffered too much together as kids, and I appreciate the fact he is imitating the best the United States Army had to offer,,, in his time ….

And if you can't appreciate his admiration of the Green Berets, YA' can kiss my Navy Blue ass ….

Jory Jory:

I don't know what to say. He is such a silver tongue devil. He slid into our lives and we fell for his line of BS. This was back in the late 80's/early 90's. Met him in a local biker bar, he was a musician. I said, Thank you and welcome home. I lent him $$. I introduced him to a friend and that turned into a nightmare. Boy, he's got a special place in heaven. On a nicer note, Thanks so much for this site

SuperUser Account:

No Idea. It's hard to follow up on these guys as the workload is very heavy. We expose them and move on.

william frank grist:

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.

DZKLAY62:

Wow! I am stupefied that a sex offender would expose himself to so much attention and expect the truth to not come out...

DZKLAY62:

I refuse to believe any SF or Operator would wear that bow tie, just saying.
