We were sent Ramón Montijo by some that knew him as a 1SG yet saw him wearing the rank of a Captain.
Nathan Ball was sent to us by multiple neighbors with emails of him claiming to be a Big Bad Green Beret. Records show a different story.
Dennis emailed us that he never claimed to be a Green Beret yet friends and family say different.
What are the chances a person sit down across the desk from a guy you’re trying to impress and potentially get a job from and you're BOTH Green Berets?
Or at least one of you are...
Roger Alan Case claims he was a "Werewolf Scout Sniper" working Covert Ops. Along with MAV-SOG in Vietnam.
Antoine E. Gomez claims Airborne Ranger, Special Forces, Black Ops... He wasn't even Airborne.
Nick George, 757 missions, shot 31 times, 2 Silver Stars, 6 Purple Hearts... All bogus
We were sent this fake Green Beret over 2 years ago. It might take a while, but we will get to you.
John Medlock had problem both in and out of the service.
Don Albares seems to like shiny awards he didn't earn as he wore many.
James Davison, the fake Green Beret created a fake profile to talk to himself and back up his lies on social media.
Jack Proulx, the fake Green Beret, doubled down on his lies when the Times-Chronicle did a follow-up article. Jack wasn't aware that we found his Ex-wife...
Jack Proulx said he went to Vietnam as a US Army Green Beret in 1971 and back in 1976, a year after Vietnam fell.
He also said he used a Barrett 50 Caliber Sniper rifle as a Special Forces Sniper. He should have done better research.
Some people should do more research to at least get the uniform correct.
Rap Peavy claimed to be a Green Beret for decades to help sell cars.
James Cooper should do some research. He wears an elisted beret yet 0-6 rank on his uniform.
Carl claims 1000 Jumps among other claims yet wasn't even Airborne.
Jeremy Dewitte, Fake Green Beret, serial Fake LEO, and walking train wreck.
If you're going to buy a fake uniform, at least buy one that fits.
Dan, went so far as to create fake emails and fake profiles, and had those fake people comment as though they served with him.
Holy Cow... When you lie, go big or go home. Martin went big.
Christopher Scott Rhodes, Ranger and Special Forces? In the reserves in the 20th? The Amy rank of SSGT?
People should do their research before they start living the lie.
Mike Langford came to us via a Special Forces Forum he had weaseled his way into. Guys in there saw red flags in his statements and reached out to us.
Richard Calvert Claimed to be a Green Beret, 54 Combat Jumps and 2 Silver Stars.
He wasn't even Airborne and never went to Vietnam.
He's been sent to us twice now from people he's reached out to on linkedin claiming to be a Green Beret in Vietnam
We were messaged a number of times that Patrick Flores is back at it on social media under a few fake profiles. We had lost the audio of his confession, so we repost it here.
You should never send your resume claiming to be a Green Beret to a real GB if you aren't one.
Big Willie had claimed to be a secret Green Beret for almost 40+ years, that claim, among others, is false.
He claimed to have been both an 18D and 18B (SF Medical and SF Weapons Sergeant) in 10th SFG(A). He stated much of what he did for the Gov is still classified.
All false. He wasn't even Airborne.
Chris Kimball, Claimed highspeed Green Beret w/ combat jumps on classified missions. He never attempted the Special Forces Q-Course and never left the States
Thou shalt not bear false witness.
What can you say about a pastor that lies about being a Green Beret...
We were sent COL Dan a few years ago. COL Dan (Really PFC Dan) Claims Airborne, Military Freefall, 2 Combat jumps, Ranger Gfeen Beret...
Allyn Dilly claims he's so high speed that the Government put a micro chip in him to monitor location and vital signs.
Art Brownstein claimed 5th Special Forces Goup in Vietnam. Direct action missions, Regional Languages, advanced military skills... All false
At various tmes, Robert Foan has claimed Air Assault, 18B, 1st SF Group. He even has a MACV-SOG patch in his Shadow Box??? All false
Follow up after he was found to have left his lies on his truck.
He sent us pictures of another truck to make it look like he removed the fake decals
Allen Mosher claimed to be a Airborne, Sniper, Ranger, SF among other things, all false
News article and audio from Gabrielle Porter at the Daily Sentinel
Richard Vallejos, Airborne, Ranger, Combat Diver, MSG, Green Beret, all fake claims
David Shaffer claimed to be a Colonel, Combat Diver, Paratrooper, Green Beret, West Point Graduate and served on four different Continents... All False
We are former and current Green Berets who find and investigate those who falsely claim to be a Green Beret. We will never out someone unless we are 100% certain via FOIA and Bragg.
Why is he working for the VA?
First of all, thank you folks for what you do, what you’ve done, and what you’re willing to do.
Secondly, it is my hope that Mr Prouix owns up to his lies. I have been watching this story and it disgusts me that there are people who would assume to receive the accolades deserved, but never sought, by better, braver, stronger men.
Mr Prouix needs to be exposed. Well done.
This is almost unbelievable. This guy wanted to be a Green Beret so bad he faked it to the grave. It must have been awesome to him to take on a persona. Feeling like a hero, getting recognition, and being treated like a hero in addition to fellowship with real warriors was too much to pass up. It must have felt good. I'm sure he could have joined the military. He just didn't think it was worth it. He could have everything without dropping a single iota of blood, sweat, or tears. I feel sorry for his family. This guy is to me obviously mentally ill. I guess he never thought he would hurt and shame his family to the extent he ended up doing so. To any potential fakers. Let this guy be a lesson to you. If you want what we have, just join the military. Don't do this to your family and friends.
I just want to thank Guardians of the Green Beret. I had no idea this problem was so widespread. These phonies do a great disservice to all us real Green Berets. Yes, I am a Green Beret. They give a false representation of who we are, what we are, and what we represent. These phonies are almost always criminal otherwise in my opinion. Good job Guardians of the Green Beret. People probably don't realize what it would be like for me to ever actually meet a phony Green Beret. Offensive is not the word. I don't think there is a word for all the things that would go through my mind.
is that white shirt even a thing? i never knew that
Ol' "Sarge" here talking all kinds of crap and stuff after he was exposed...LOL
It's really pathetic that people try to get away with this type of stuff. I spent 23 years in the Army and retired in 2006 and although would have loved to to be a part of a Special Forces or Ranger unit and go through all of the training, never did it. And it just amazes me the lengths that people will go through to embellish military service.
Question: There's a photo of him with two "fatboys" wearing berets, are either of them actually SF? The one in the middle sure doesn't wear his beret correctly (might be an officer)! lol
Impressive bio. Rambo, Ralph Macchio (Karate Kid) and Chuck Norris all rolled into one. They have a song named for him "Superman, Where Are You Now".
I don't know much about a military uniform BUT his pants are WAY too long...they bunch up on tops of his shoes and basically drag the ground in the back. Also, there was a pic of him with a lady...outside...without a cover. Hmm.
