Sometimes you should count your blessings, move on and shut up.
We were sent Greg Buck the fake Green Beret back in 2016 as to have claimed to be a Green Beret on ODA 335 as an 18D. He had been talking to a guy he knew in high school. The guy from high school happened to be a legit Green Beret and asked if anybody knew him in a vetted Special Forces forum.
Initial 2016 question as to whether anybody knew him?
We quickly established he was never a Green Beret. It looks like he was claiming to be New Orleans SWAT also. We reached out to those that worked with him and they said he was a problem.
When we reached out to Greg Buck the fake Green Beret himself, he was adamant he NEVER said he was SF, a Green Beret, 18D, on ODA 335, or anything close to that.
He sent us a 1,347-word song and dance "woe is me" email that was painful to read.
That being said, we were getting ready to expose him as a fraud, and the file somehow got moved inside an adjacent file and thus out of sight. Had Greg Buck the fake Green Beret lived the rest of his life quietly as a non-Green Beret, we would have forgotten about him and he would have received a pass. Not that we were giving him a pass, we simply would have never seen the file again as it was hidden.
Fast forward to May 2021...
He's talking to somebody claiming to be what? A Green Beret
What MOS is he claiming? 18D (Special Forces Medical Sergeant)
What ODA is he claiming? ODA 335
18D on ODA 335 is the EXACT same lie he told the high school friend in 2016 (that he said he didn't). He seems to have lived in his delusion of being a Green Beret since he was dropped from never even starting the Q-Course.
The only thing is... He was telling all this to a legit Green Beret who searched his name in a vetted site called SF Brothers and saw to 2016 thread on him. oops.
We don't even see he attempted the Prep Course. The Prep Course is before you even get to attempt SFAS (Special Forces Assessment and Selection), and SFAS is before SFQC (Special Forces Qualification Course)
Greg Buck the fake Green Beret is as much a Green Beret is as my Mom is.
He NEVER attempted SFQC because he didn't attempt SFAS.
He didn't attempt SFAS because he never even attempted SOPC.
He didn't attempt SOPC because He just didn't.
He was never assigned to a Special Forces Regimental unit for a day.
Wanting to be a Green Beret and getting hurt before you even attempt any part of anything does NOT give you the right to pretend to be one of us. In his woe is me 1,347-word excuse... He is confused as to how often you need to Jump to stay on Jump status. We can assume he hurt himself in his cherry jump and that's why he doesn't know how often you need to jump.
