a person falsely claiming to have a special knowledge or skill; a fraud.
"a self-confessed con artist and charlatan"
Man of God or charlatan? "Apostle" Wil D Hamilton the fake Green Beret would fall under the definition of a charlatan as defined in the dictionary. he was sent to us by a forum of Drill Sergeants that Wil Hamilton was a member of. He said he was a Drill Sergeant from 92-94 (False, we do see he was awarded the Drill Sergeants Badge in August of '95 Yet ATRRS doesn't show him as graduating the course.). His 1059 Is heavily redacted and does NOT have graduate checked. He said he was a MSG with 22 years of service but needed help in how to place his ribbons and decorations on his uniform. We started getting emails from other members of that forum that questioned how a Drill Sergeant wouldn't know the order of precedence when it came to his uniform.

👉Phone Call with Wil Hamilton👈 We also have a message from him as picture #89
We were sent some pictures and it was realized he had photoshopped himself wearing the uniform of a legit operator that was lost in Iraq on Oct 22, 2015. The Drill Sergeant forum knew almost immediately he was a fraud as they saw Wil D Hamilton, the fake Green Beret, was wearing the Campain hat as an E-8. Once you make MSG, you remove the Campain hat unless you're a commandant at one of the Drill Sergeant schools.
Shameful this "Man of God" would work so hard on his lie to photoshop his head into the uniform of a legit brother.

How can a "Man of God" work so hard to run this lie? This is the third man of God we've busted for lying about being a Green Beret.
One of them said Christians were easily duped. That's why he became a preacher. Could this be what "Apostle" Wil D Hamilton the fake Green Beret is doing?
You'll see in the photo section the amount of time and energy that this fraud "Apostle" Wil D Hamilton put into his lie. Most if not all of the certificates he shares are web-bought fakes. The active-duty Drill Sergeant that reached out to us about this guy also reached out to Ft Benning and talked to the NCOIC in charge of Jump School. He confirmed that "Apostle" Wil D Hamilton never completed the Basic Airborne Course.
We've not seen a 1059 redacted as much as this one is and that usually isn't a good thing. That being said, we do NOT see him as a graduate in ATRRS.
In fact, his ATRRS shows ZERO training from 1985 forward, meaning these 2-1's are not legit and he or his buddy created them.
Wil Hamilton, aka "Apostle" Wil D Hamilton you'll now be added to guardiansofthegreenberet.com hall of zeroes forever.
