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

Rauden "Rap" Peavy, Green Beret... NOT!!

Rap Peavy was sent to us by a fellow Green Beret who actually served with him in Vietnam, where he knew him as a rear-echelon radio repairman that was never issued a weapon.
He saw him on a YouTube video claiming to have served 3 tours in Vietnam as a Green Beret with 5th Special Forces, MACV SOG Black Ops. You can hear him in his own words 👉👉
 Rap Peavy in his own words 👈👈

He stated he was a Green Beret over the years in ads for his car lot. He clearly used his claim to be Special Forces to help with sales at his car lot.

We sent for his military records and see he has several accomplishments to be proud of, but being Special Forces (Green Beret) is not one of them. He wasn't even Airborne, which is a prerequisite to attend Special Forces Training.

While it is true he was stationed with 5th SF, CCC he was assigned to Special Forces as MOS (31S) Field General Communication Security Repairer and not as a member of any MACV SOG unit and not a Green Beret. Interestingly, due to the rules used during Vietnam, anyone serving with Special Forces for 120 days or longer and earned a Combat Infantry Badge (CIB) with that unit were considered a battle field Green Beret.

His military records do not show that he was awarded a CIB. Therefore, no retroactive award of SF TAB would be authorized, nor was he Airborne qualified. His MOS was (31S) Field General Communication Security Repairer.

Giving him the benefit of the doubt we tried several times, in vein, to contact him for an explanation of his Green Beret claims. Finally, we were able to contact him through one of his FB friends.

He admitted the video was a mistake and should have said he served with Special Forces but not as a Green Beret.

He has many things suggesting that he is a Green Beret on his Facebook page to include his Profile Picture with Special Forces patch and Long Tab over Old Man Clan tab.

His explanation for wearing Special Forces apparel is that he was honoring the time he serving with 5th Special Forces, Command and Control Central (CCC). Yet that wasn’t enough, he chose to cheapen those memories by pretending to be a Green Beret.

Rap Peavy you will now be added to Hall of Zeros.

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.
