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

Ronald Worthey, Fake Green Beret

Ronald Worthey, Fake Green Beret came under our radar about a month and a half ago. Someone from his MC club reached out to us to see if we could vet him. A number in his club had questions on his claims.

On some formats, you'll need to click the red bar at the bottom of the pictures to see more pictures.

We were told he claimed to have been in Vietnam in 67, 68, and 69 as a Green Beret. He also claimed to have received the Silver Star and 3 Purple Hearts.

We attained his records and it looks like he never left the States as a Seaman in the Navy for a year and 5 months.

Pretty cut and dry case. He readily admitted it during a phone call. We couldn't use the first call, so we called him back and were able to reestablish contact and he admitted the same in a more streamlined call. During that call, you can hear him state he only started the Purple Heart claims a few months ago. That's yet another lie from Ron Worthey's mouth. In the pictures, you can see him wearing the PH on his hat from years ago and the quilt made for him in 2016 says Vietnam Veteran, Recipient of the Silver Star, and three Purple Hearts. That quilt picture was dated in 2016.

You can listen to it at this link Ron Worthey Phone call. After our "outing" him, Channel 9 WAOW ran with it locally. Here is their very well done article. It's a must listen as they add additional local history on him. WAOW News Article

He agreed to mail back his fake patches to the Green Beret Foundation, yet they have not received them yet.

Ron Worthey, you'll now be added to Guardiansofthegreenberet.com Hall of Fakes, Frauds, and Phonies.

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.

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.

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

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.
