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

Daniel Lombardi, Green Beret... NOT!!

Not even worth our time......

Let us present Daniel Lombardi.

EDIT: Before we get started, Daniel Lombardi, fake Green Beret went to great lengths to try and correct his lies. He claimed he thought we were the frauds, was just messing with us, and that he never claimed to have been SF. He claimed it for years. At one time we had a newspaper article that proved that false as it mentioned him being SF in it. That link is now a bad link and we didn't save screen shots (bummer). That being said, the very first photo is a screen shot from a former friend of his going on record as to his claims. NUFF SAID Daniel.

He came under our radar a while back. 

He had asked to join a 7th Grp forum. With all new adds, the first thing that is done is a scan of their FB profile to see if they have any SF friends. 

He had zero. His profile also had him as an 18B. He was asked his ties to the 7th.

The screen shots follow. When called on his BS, he tried to backtrack and you can see that in the screen shots. However, we contacted some of his friends and they said he had claimed to be a GB infant of them often.

We “Outed” him on FB and can only think he whined enough to get FB to pull the post about him. In that post we had a URL that had a writeup about him also claiming to have been Special Forces. That link is no longer good. We should have saved screen shots of the header and the text of the article. We learned quickly after that to do so, as he had the article pulled. We tried to pull it from the payback machine and it came up as a bad link.

As soon as he knew he was busted, he removed the 18B from his profile as it had yet to be saved. The thing he couldn't remove was the PM’s to our admins and the verbal claims to his friends.

Daniel Lombardi, you’ll be added to the “Not worth out time” section, as you were to easy to bust.

I remember when this was going down and both saw the article and the 18B on his profile.

To bad the article wasn't saved.

This news is pretty sad for me because I knew the guy. The 1998 overwrite should read that he was the commander of C Troop, 1-18 Cav. I don't recall him wearing any tabs or badges. I am glad that a 19th Group (Guard) guy brought this to your attention. To me this casts a shadow of suspicion with anybody in the Guard. He left the Guard prior to GWOT. I think that the Guard did our share in GWOT with multiple mobilizations and deployments. I was mobilized twice, including a year in Afghanistan as an Infantryman. Now I'll wonder if people will think I'm a liar if I say anything about my service. Thanks Eddie...

Scott Berndt:

Talk about a disgrace to the uniform! I can't believe he got away with the fraud all those years. If you go to his website at, it still makes it sound like he has an Army SF background without stating he was one. He even has awards issued by several SF organizations. Sounds like the GotGB still have some hunting to do.

U.S. Naval Aircrewman (90-95):

Wow. Absolutely mind blowing & disgraceful. They should make a documentary about how this turd BS'd his way through the years in order to be in a position to be standing next to Presidents, politicians & celebritys. I get pissed when I think of all the others like him but that have never gotten exposed or caught. Great job catching this s--t turd.

U.S. Naval Aircrewman (90-95):

You can tell just by looking at him that he is a shit bird.

Royal Mons:

If these phonies want to play dress up they should join a re-enactment society and not lie about their fantasies and live off the sacrifice of others.


FRANCO K WEBB is a LYING POSER. He and I were BEST FRIENDS during the time he CLAIMS 7th GP 18D (MY MOS and MY Duty assignment - ODA 755/754, O&I, SWC G Co SFAS, 1st Bn S3).

He was NEVER ASSOCIATED WITH, ASSIGNED TO, in SUPPORT OF, or attended ANY TRAINING that would qualify his claim of being an 18D.

He was a CAR STEREO SALESMAN and INSTALLER on Yadkin Road the ENTIRE TIME I KNEW HIM. We were in Westarea Fire Department TOGETHER and he lived in a trailer on Haretown road.

It APPEARS that he has taken some of MY SF TRAINING, HISTORY and BACKGROUND, claimed it as his own, and further EMBELLISHED those stories for his own video game centered bravado.


SuperUser Account:

He probably never will. The 7th Grp picture he pretends is his is an ODA from the mid-'80s. We've identified all men in the picture. It also looks like he added a Ranger Tab to his website. He's never before claimed Ranger so this is strange.

He and Mike Mika (President of SFA Ch 34) threatened to sue the SFA National if they didn't rescind the letter they sent us, give Rudi a formal apology, and re-instate him as a member in good standing. Of course SFA National refused and nothing came of his idle threat.

Mike Mika has twice, along with Rudi Gresham the fake Green Beret claimed that Rudi spent 12 years in the S.C. National Guard and that's where he attained the rank of LTC. Neither time were they able to produce records that baked up that statement.

SGT P - Rakkasan:

I just looked at his personal website, and it still has a picture autographed by General Yarborough, and a statement that says he served as Yarborough’s Aide. When will this clown give it up? I took screen shots.

Rick Upton:

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.
