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

Ron Dickey, Green Beret... NOT!!

Who used his Green Beret claims to run for the Senate

Ron Dickey, Fake Green Beret that used his fake Green Beret Claims to run for political office.

Meet Ron Dickey,  Mississippi Democratic candidate for Congress in District One. Ron has proclaimed in his list of accomplishments and past endeavors to be a “former Green Beret”. He refers to himself as a “Green Beret Veteran of Desert Storm” and is using this claim to garner votes with the local veterans and general public. He claims that while assigned to 3rd Special Forces Group that he was authorized to wear the Green Beret therefore he can refer to himself as a “former Green Beret”. While the first portion of this claim is true, he never went through or attempted to attend Special Forces (Green Beret) training. During the time of his claim he was assigned as a Food Specialist, 94B. All support personnel assigned to a Special Forces unit were authorized to wear the Green Beret by the Commander, US SOCOM from 1991-May1993. This policy change was implemented because qualified Green Berets were awarded the Special Forces Tab which supposedly distinguished them from the support soldiers in the units. Authorization for support personnel wearing the beret ceased in May 1993 when Gen. Wayne Downing took command of US SOCOM. RON IS NOT EVEN AIRBORNE QUALIFIED, which he has made no claims to be, except for the FACT that in order to be a “Green Beret”, a soldier is required to be Airborne qualified first. More smoke and mirrors with the intention of misleading the voting public.

Ron also claims to be a Veteran of Desert Storm (2 August 1990 – 28 February 1991) and that when “...he got back from the Middle East, he developed extensive skin abrasions. He still doesn’t know if he was exposed to something during the war, but his health began to deteriorate quickly (sic).” However, his records do not show authorization for either the Southwest Asia Service Medal or the Kuwait Liberation Medal which were awarded to soldiers who actually deployed to the Persian Gulf during Desert Storm. Ronald is using the loose claim of being an Active Duty Soldier DURING Desert Storm to being a Veteran of Desert Storm. Again, Ronald Dickey is using an element of truth to bolster claims of valor and honor he did not earn.

Next, there have been several instances where Ron Dickey has inferred that he is a member of the Military Order of the Purple Heart. He has listed it in resumes and inferred membership as far back as 2006 in a Newsweek article. A review of his records shows no award of the Purple Heart for wounds received in time of military conflict, a requirement for membership in this fraternity. Again, Mr Dickey uses fragments of the truth, to gain wider glory and honor.

On all of these issues, Ronald will probably call it, a misunderstanding, a faux pas, or a mix up.

Ron Dickey is a true politician, creating a vision of himself in the public eye that is completely the opposite of what he is; a LIAR and FRAUD. Ron Dickey, knows that he has mislead the public in his campaign yet still argues his claims are valid. He knows he wasn’t a “Green Beret” yet he continues to make this claim. Ron Dickey is a typical politician who embellishes his qualifications and uses misleading information to gain popularity and votes. In reality Ron Dickey is a FRAUD and LIAR, who will do whatever necessary to accomplish his goals. Ron Dickey has posted his lies on his own Face Book, Pinterest, Twitter and other sites. He has mislead news reporters, radio hosts and local organizations with his claims to be a former “Green Beret”. While Ron Dickey did serve honorably in the U.S. Army, he was not a Green Beret as he claims. Why he feels he has to mislead the public is unknown. Maybe he just wants to present himself to be something greater than he actually was. Serving as a Special Forces Green Beret is something few accomplish. It’s something that Ron Dickey never did. Bluntly, Mr Dickey is likely lying on multiple issues relating to past history, experience, and honors.

It’s time that that the public know who they are dealing with….RON DICKEY, A LIAR AND FRAUD and former Army Food Service Specialist. His claims of being a Special Forces (Green Beret) soldier are nothing but lies. What else is a lie?

Ron Dickey, Fake Green Beret and fraud, you'll forever be added to The Guardians of the Green Beret Hall of Shame.

This guy was all around San Antonio, TX making his rounds selling himself as a Green Beret! When the questions about his service started to come in from common soldiers, it was quickly discovered that he was a complete fraud. No one at the San Antonio Silver Wings Airborne Association, Special Forces Association, has ever heard of him!

Yet another Piece of Shit phony. When will it stop?


Good Lord. 🤦🏻‍♂️

VFW Post 10226 voted unanimously at it's monthly meeting tonight to revoke his membership and he is also banned for life from the building. Now he will have to hang out at the Chuckee Cheese soda fountain and tell all the 8 year olds about his good old days in SF. But then again the 8 year olds will probably say "Dude, shut the f#ck up. You're a poser. Now pour me another orange soda".


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.)

Salt Life Vet:

Unfortunately I know this turd. He was a real black eye for the VFW post on Oak Island. Thank God he is no longer a part of it. Many of us knew he was a liar and fraud about many things, Nice to finally officially know the truth. He will soon have his VFW cred's revoked and the American legion has also dropped him from the rolls. Great work guys. Thank you for maintaining the honor and beauty of that wonderful head gear known as the Green Beret and the bravery and valor of the unique men who have the privilege of wearing it. Keep it up!


I saw this article and it made my blood boil. My dad wasn't a Green Beret, he was in the Air Force. He went to Vietnam 1964, 1971 and a smaller stint between the two tours. Those who go to war do not brag about what they did in the war. Those who flaunt their "accomplishments" are more likely than not, fake. I know of someone who tells everyone, including his sons and now grandkids, that he is a Green Beret that served in Vietnam and received medals. In 1972 (i eill need to verify the year), he joined the Reserves so to not be drafted for Vietnam. Can you guys help me find the truth?


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.


Disgusting!!! The law needs to be tweaked to make it a crime whereas simply wearing the insignia is punishable. I, regrettably, never had the honor os serving in our Armed Forces due to starting my career fresh out of high school. These stories, make me nauseous. Do NOT, under any circumstances, take away from the brave men and women the serve admirably and EARN the credentials that they acquire. Keep up the good work outing these frauds
