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 Hall of Zeroes forever.

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.
