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.

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.

DZKLAY62:

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.

DZKLAY62:

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.
