Thomas Heben has claimed for years to be a graduate of the Special Forces Qualification Course (SFQC) and a former member of 3rd Special Forces Group. He also claimed to have served in Afghanistan with SF and left the service as a Staff Sergeant (SSG/E6). He lied to his family, friends and employer(s).The fact is, he never completed the selection process to even attempt Special Forces training and was "discharged" from the Army as a Specialist 4 (E-4).
He did attempt Special Forces Assessment and Selection only to be dropped the first time for unknown reasons and on second attempt he "quit".
Thomas Joesph Heben then met his biggest obstacle and failed again. He couldn't surpass the scrutiny of tried and true Special Forces soldiers. A brotherhood like no other, and one that he'll never again be able to falsely claim he is part of. A Special Forces soldier he is not, a liar and fraud sums him up nicely.
We were the ones that exposed his lie when we were Special Forces Posers Exposed. We quickly found out he didn’t even make it through selection, as those that were there when he dropped out were/are members of a vetted SF forum with 5000+ Long Tabs. This was a fairly quick case to investigate and end.
The attached apology was submitted only after he was backed into a corner and we believe, to take any heat off his brother, who’s a navy SEAL. While it seems sincere, he's only really sorry because he got caught. It should be also known that he was given an outline of what the apology had to include.
Thomas Heben, You’ll forever be added to Guardians of the Green Beret Hall of Fakes, Frauds, and Phonies.
