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

ROMEO ANTONIO NOEL PAPICA III aka Ran Papica, Green Beret... NOT!!

Filipino Spec Ops, Ranger, Delta, SF, all false

We've been conducting a 16 month investigation on a person of interest who has been operating in the St.Pete/Tampa, Bradenton, Sarasota, Venice, Englewood, and North Port Florida areas for several years. 

Watch this video first: WWSB news clip on Ran Papica.

Our local assets in the area have uncovered many stories about the "mysterious" and "cryptic" RAN. We can confirmed with rock solid sources the following claims made by this individual:

Bushido Master, Samurai Warrior, United States Navy SEAL, C.I.A. Operative, PURPLE HEART RECIPIENT, United States Army Officer (Major and a Captain at the same time) in the Rangers, Airborne Jump Master, Delta Operator and Special Forces. Mr. Papica claims his amputated leg happened while on a Special Forces secret mission. 

Interestingly, Mr. Papica has told various people (who we have talked to) that his leg injury was caused by an IED, RPG, or from an automobile accident, depending on who he was talking to. It was none of the above. It was because he stepped on a rusty nail and the resulting complications associated with diabetes and infection because he never sought medical care. This was confirmed by his pastor to us over the phone. His pastor also confirmed that Ran Papica claimed to be in Special Forces for 14 years.


Furthermore, we made contact with two dojos that Mr. Papica had agreed to "offer his services" to. One in St. Petersburg and one in Sarasota, Florida. It came as no surprise to us that the leadership at both gyms knew "right away" that Mr. Papica's claims of being a "Samurai Warrior trained in the “Bushido Way" were complete nonsense. Both Dojos asked him to leave. The Sensei from the Dojo in St Petersburg said Ran Papica claimed to have been Philippine Special Operations for years before coming to the States. This was also confirmed by us over the phone.

We sent for his military records and the only Papica that came back in the results was a Korean war era vet. Ran Papica NEVER served a single day in the military.

On a side note, when we reached out to our friends at the POW Network, they produced a SEAL request from 2008, when they had sent to a SEAL contact they use asking if Ran was a SEAL. It seems in 2008, he had come under the radar of others as Ran Papica was claiming to be a SEAL.

We made contact with Ran Papica’s landlord and he also confirmed that Ran has claimed to be a secret squirrel SF operator for the time he knew him…… Ran has since bolted the area and left no forwarding address or contact info.

Ran has the history of asking people in places he is a member of for money, this has been confirmed by multiple people that would like to stay off the record. He’s been asked to leave those places because of his actions.

The Sarasota Sky Bar and Cafe held a fundraiser for Ran Papica based on his claims. They were holding a second, yet Ran got wind of our investigation and they canceled it. 

ROMEO ANTONIO NOEL "Ran"  PAPICA III, you’ll for ever be added to the Guardians of The Green Beret website as a Fake.

Zero?

I got on to this site because I know of this AKA Romero Antonio Noel person. I don't know the man personally but I know people who do. I just cant wrap my hands around this cause it does not make any sense to me. He has a veteran Id and goes to the VA clinic. I don't know just really confused on all of this stuff. if anyone can shed some light on this for me and others I would greatly appreciate it. thank you.

I can tell you for a fact that he has never been to the VA for any treatments. He actually told me that he cant go to one( supposedly because the government was denying his existence due to covert mission involvement) he does not have a real vetrans ID either. If he is carrying one, it's fake. I'd love to know what name he has on it. Recently in Texas he has been going by the name Alex ( which I believe is actually the name of the guy at the Sky bar down in Florida where they put on a fund raiser for him under the false pretense that he was ex-special forces wounded in combat.)

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

https://www.rudigresham.com, 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.

SOF VETTE:

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.

FRANCO K WEBB IS A GREEN BERET FRAUD

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?

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.
