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

John L Medlock, Green Beret... Not!! Pedophile... Yes!!

 

John Medlock was sent to us by an SF Brother who met him on a flight. Here’s the message we received:

This guy was wearing a big 5th Group hat with all kinds of pins with scuba, JM wings, and Halo wings, CIB. He claimed 5th Group from 1969-1974 and then Delta from 1974-1989. Two tours in VN, tunnel rat, shot in shoulder first tour and leg in second tour.

However, he couldn't tell me his first ODA or Team Sergeant. Said he worked with the 82nd doing Tow Missile and other weapons training when in 5th Group. 

It got worse, when he said his team in VN was 151 (I kept pressing for an ODA), but I reminded him that he said he was a 5th Grouper. Then claimed he was attached to 1st Group. Winner was that he retired as a SFC because he bit a snakes head off during a Senators and wives demo and also punched a LT!

My first clue was when he said that 10th Group (my Group and said to him upon intro) was in Italy. Ugh!

So, we got his records and low and behold…. The skeletons we keep...

Looks like John L Medlock the Fake Green Beret had problems both in the service and after.

In Pictures #14-15 we see the Army started Court-Martial Proceedings on him and in pictures #4, 11, and 16, it looks like he touched stepdaughters and served 8 years of a 20 year sentence. Usually we don’t include criminal records unless it reinforces deception and/or lies etc… These charges would fall under deceiving the public, along with friends, and family into thinking you’re a good person when in reality, you’re evil. Nobody gets a pass from touching kids.

So, do records (pictures #12-15) confirm his claims… Not even close:

Combat Infantry Badge (CIB): False

Special Forces Tab: False

SCUBA/CDCQ: False

Master Parachutist Badge: False

Military Freefall Badge: False

82nd doing Tow Missile and other weapons training when in 5th Group: False

Delta 1974-1989: False. Attention Frauds, do research on when units were stood up before you run your lie.

Two Tours in Vietnam: False

Tunnel Rat: False

Shot in Shoulder on 1st tour: False

Shot in leg on 2nd tour: False

ODA 151 in 5th Grp attached to 1st Grp: False

13 Years 3 months, JFK Special warfare: False

Retired as a SFC because he bit a snakes head off during a Senators and wives demo (Per GB heard during flight): False

Staff Sargeant (per LinkedIn): False, a SSG would know how to spell Staff Sergeant.

Why is he working for the VA?

RobertEddy:

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.

EVERYTHINGREALLY:

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.

EVERYTHINGREALLY:

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.

guywholikesgbsalot:

is that white shirt even a thing? i never knew that

Johnny O:

Ol' "Sarge" here talking all kinds of crap and stuff after he was exposed...LOL

Johnny O:

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.

Jacob Martin:

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

LoriKat:

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".

LoriKat:

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.
