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

Steven Morales, Green Beret...NOT!!!

We were sent Steven Morales the fake Green Beret way back in May of 2019 yet had more urgent cases at the time. He somehow slipped through the cracks as other frauds took priority.

Fast forward to July of 2022 and he gets sent in yet again. We went to file for records and found that we already had both a file on him and records in that file.

So, Steven Morales, the fake Green Beret claimed to have been a Staff Sergeant in 3rd Special Forces Group and to have received a Purple Heart. Both of those are false claims. He also claimed to have earned an Air Assault Badge, also a lie.

 

 

 

 

What records show is that he was reduced in rank twice.

 

The portion of his ERB showing a reduction in rank and Reenl/Prohib of 9Z

 

 

 

From an E-4 Specialist to E-3 PFC on 6/21/06 and then from an E-3 to E-2 Private on 03/25/07. His ERB shows 9Z in the Reenl/Prohib section (Weight does not meet acceptable weight standards)

While working the case, we were sent the DD 214 he tried to present to the BMV to get Purple Heart License plates. It's one of the worse fakes we've seen. On his fake
 

 

 

 

A bigger picture can be seen in picture #2 and his actual DD214 and ERB can be seen in Pic #10 and 11.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On his fake DD214, box 11 clearly shows taped in areas, the DD214 in general has different shading depending on whether it was altered or from the original and his Date of Birth compared to the day he entered the service would make him about 12. 

The Fake Purple Heart Certificate he produced (below) was bought online and says Reproduction Run 103 on it. in the bottom left corner.

 

  

You can see a better picture in picture #5, and a legit certificate in pic #6

 

 

 

 

We were told that he whited that area out when he passed it to the BMV to get his Purple Heart plates. 

He also shares this SFQC (Special Forces Qualification Course) certificate.

 

 

 

 This is a known fake that many frauds but online. Notice the typo. The yellow 1st SFG(A) would never be used on a SWCS certificate. A better picture can be seen in pic #7, and a legit certificate can be seen in pic #8

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It seems that this isn't the first time Steven Morales the fake Green Beret has pretended to be something he's not. In 2011, he was charged with the impersonation of a Police Officer. We asked him about it and he sent what we share below:

 

 

You can see a better picture in the picture section, #15

 

 

 

 

We eventually made contact with Steven Morales the fake Green Beret and you can hear that in the link below:

He wasn't eager to discuss this matter on the phone and quickly hung up on us. These frauds only show remorse when caught. We don't think he's remorseful, he's pissed that he got caught and has to resign his position as Commander of Cherokee Nation Colorguard.

There are many news articles and interviews mentioning him as a Staff Sergeant and Green Beret with a Purple Heart. It's now our job to contact each and every one of them to try and get them to correct the article and do a follow-up article showing his deception.

Steven Morales the fake Green Beret will now be added to guardiansofthegreenberet.com Hall of Zeroes forever.

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.

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
