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

RON STONE Green Beret... NOT!!

Who used his fake claims to sell his books.

RON STONE, Fake Green Beret who used his fake claims to sell his books.

AUTHOR,  SPECIAL FORCES SOLDIER (NOT) and Distinguished Service Cross Recipient (NOT)

It seems that Ron Stone has been making a bit of money writing books about his service in Viet Nam while claiming to be a former Special Forces soldier, DSC recipient and a laundry list of other qualifications which according to his records obtained under the FOIA prove to be FALSE.

Ron's claims include awards of the Distinguished Service Cross, Soldier's Medal for Valor, Army Commendation Medal, Navy Commendation Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Vietnamese Commendation Medal, Presidential Unit Citation, Expert Marksman's Badge, Combat Infantryman's Badge, Airborne Qualification Wings, and the Good Conduct Medal. As you can see from his records, practically ALL of these are false claims.

Ronnie also claims to be a Life member of the Special Forces Association, yep, you guessed it he is not nor has ever been a member.

Ronnie did serve in the Army (1964-1968) as a Morse Code Interceptor, but unless he was TDY to Viet Nam his assignments do not indicate he was ever there. Ronnie claims to have run LRRP missions with the 101st in RVN even displays a 17th "Golden Talon" Airborne Division SSI in his hoohah box? Interesting - because the 17th was inactivated in September 1945 and hasn't been reactivated since.

I would guess that Stone really was an ASA intercept operator. But he would be a linguist in order to monitor anything other than Morse coming out of NVN. I have not seen "Vietnamese Linguist" in his bios. That would certainly be in his repertoire but nowhere has Ronnie claimed to be able to speak Vietnamese.

A friend told me..." It's obvious he was a signals intercept operator with the 51st SOC (ASA) supporting the 1st SFGA in Oki, but sitting there listening to all that static all day long must've fried his brain and over-stimulated its BS lobe to produce the fertilizer he's been peddling as his "There I was..." story for all these years."

Ronnie has attempted to remove most of his claims from various internet sites to include his Face Book page, but a simple search for his name will still reveal many of his claims on sites like Amazon books and Author's Den....apparently Ronnie was alerted by several individuals that he was under scrutiny after spouting his lies in several FB groups. There is even a FB page dedicated to Ronnie. We were holding back on posting Ron's "outing" pending some other investigations but since the cat is out of the bag now...ENJOY and remember....the first rule in poser busting is to never let them know what's coming until the BIG hammer drops. Too bad Ronnie got a head's up.

Ron Stone, Fake Green Beret that used those claims to sell his fake stories in his books, you'll forever be in The Guardians of the Green Beret Hall of Shame.

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.
