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

Travis Schwarzer, Green Beret… NOT!!

Travis came up on our radar when he tried to purchase some coffee from 

You can find then here: De Espresso Liber Coffee

A former Group guy owns that company… OOPS.

They established dialog and Travis was asked what BN he served in, as the De Espresso Liber rep saw him in a Tan beret. Travis replied 3rd and also added he was 7th and 10th SFG… “and of course” RTB. He asked the DEL rep if he was Pathfinder qualified.

Travis added he was 18Z and 5th RTB. He said he still assists in Mountain Phase and out at Robin Sage. Travis added he is the schools liaison for the National Pathfinder Assoc. He adds that he goes to Benning for the Airborne and Pathfinder Graduations. Travis said they give the honor and international students a one year membership.

As the correspondence continues, Travis says he spent his first 8 years in the USMC then 19 in the US Army. He was asked about his star on his CIB and Travis responds he had quote: “2 qualifying eras. 3rd-SW Asia, 4-OFS Among others.”

He then adds he’s a private person and he doesn’t just throw stuff out there… AFTER he threw stuff out there.

Travis then stated: I’m not asking you or your other brothers to take time to vet me. I don’t know your name, Group, BN etc… I spent the first 8 years in the Corps, in Force Recon… in units that are now MARSOC. I went through the Army schools as a Marine. I went to Combat Diver and Mountain Warfare schools, then worked beside Rangers and SF so I went that route. He adds he was in every major conflict since 1983 in his 27 year and many not so well known.

When we reached out to him and immediately told him he was NOT a ranger, was NOT SF, he immediately said he’d remove all and only just supported these orgs.  He must not have known we had the texts between him a coffee, as those statements to them seem to contradict his statements to us. 

We asked him to send his fake stuff back to the Green Beret Foundation and he agreed.

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
