My favorites are always the "I have 37 silver stars, 12 medals of honor, and I was a POW for 6 months (twice) even tho I was only in the military for 3 years."

I retired as an E-5 because my promotions during super secret missions are all classified.

Oh Oh Oh, Almost forgot: "I don't need to wear my Long Tab as I know what I have earned." (Direct quote from a POS I met in OCS claiming service in C-1-10. I graduated an Officer, he left a civilian)

Anyone under 55 telling you how fucked up it was in Vietnam in "Poontang Province" when he saw his South Vietnamese counterpart, Sum Yung Gai, get blown apart...

True story, I was out at a jump about 6 months ago and some civilian contractor was chatting up one of my guys, so I walked over to kill some time before they CANX the jump because of winds.

This cat was wearing a Vietnam Veteran baseball cap so I asked him who he was with during the war...he tells me he was in Ia Drang in 1968 with the Cav (Hal Moore and all that...:rolleyes:)...I laughed in his face...he left fairly quickly after that...if you're going to be a poser, at least have the courtesy to do the legwork and research so that it takes someone more than 30 seconds to punch holes in your shitty story

Gun shop, yesterday

Guy states, He was in the Airforce in Vietnam, in 79, you know, secret mission's picking up downed aircraft. Gun paperwork, he is 54.

Yea I know it is not a SF fraud, but since he added 'secret missions' I am counting it.

I met a Guy in Dallas who claims he was in the Coast Guard and went through Marine training to go on classified missions to emplace and repair special guidance beacons behind enemy lines in Vietnam. He got mad when I laughed at him in front of a crowd of rapt listeners.

They're a joint service plague.

"My uncle was in the special forces in the Marines" - I've lost count of how many times I've heard that one.

From a supposed 18D. "I am not familiar with 300F1"

From a supposed SF Medic when asked what his MOS was. "I was an 19D". Called him on it big time and it ended up he attended a CLS course put on by some 18Ds. On his CV that turned into SF Medic.

"... when I graduated the Q course, we couldn't come to a contract agreement so I got out."

That one is actually true.

I saw two guys after graduation refuse to sign the extensions to allow for 36 months at their unit of assignment, assuming that the CoC would nott make an issue out of it.

They picked the wrong day to challenge authority and were put out, after their Tabs and orders were revoked.

"oh.... they will never declassify the missions I went on."

Actually that might be a true quote..... I've been on missions that might not be declassified. Lots of missions are classified and many not declassified.

"This is just a big misunderstanding. You misunderstood what I meant when I said I was an 18D in 10th SFGA."

Unless it's, "They'll never declassify the missions I went on. I was Spec Ops."

One time this lady at a Harris Teeter who knew my wife said, "Oh, you're wearing your Green Beret in public? My nephew's in Special Services, but they won't let him wear his in public."

I have started saving ones I have been involved with outing. Here are my top three so far. The last is a SEAL I outed but it's still a classic. The spelling errors are their own;

1) You cannot volunteer for this work (I certainly did not know anything about this group, until I got orders with a strange name. I had never heard about, nor anyone who I knew, know anything about this command, even the detailler.). This I know: You are selected after several years in the service by a strange process, which I have no "Need to Know". At AFB McDill Tampa, FL, JOINT SOC is not authorized to use these assets, nor do they fall under their command structure for your information. There is a node at Fort Bragg, North Carolina in the Army (I often PREPOSIT for deployment from there, hopping flights out of AFB Pope), which has the classified knowledge. Another node with knowledge is at Hurlburt Field AFB in Florida (I often trained there). The concentration for the Navy is located at Little Creek Navy Amphibious Base, Norfolk, Virginia and San Diego, California (which has a sub team in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.). The tasking is not like DELTA, Army SF, Air Force SF, its more brains for the destruction and the disruption of the Command and Control assets of an OPFOR. All the rest is pure PFM or classified... That's is all I can say on the unclassified version...


2) Fort Brag shooting range, you guys shoot situate, we fire for points of accuracy scoring. You required us to shoot in your range, which I considered a waste of time, so I asked a Sgt. Brown, not to shoot at his target to go high. I put 40/40 on the marks on his target, none on mine, because I had orders not to display my marksmanship and weapons proficiency. You guys had a big laugh! Sgt. Brown was the best shot of the day, I made his day! Then to give yourselves a bigger laugh, you had medical give us the Plaque inoculation to my chief and me, it put him down for four days, three for me and I so wanted to watch a football game on TV that night. You guys are a barrel of laughs, but SAS is worse!


This 3rd one is a SEAL poser I outed but it's still classic:

3) when my career ended, there were several security issues surrounding my service and what had happened on a specific op… i (and the govt went through great legnths to ensure i was “erased” from specop service..i at time went along with…due to my becoming disenfranchised by things we all had learned our govt was into… during our service…i have always held that i am not responsible to validate myself in any regard to any person..i know what and who i am..and you or any other person can take that at face value of the alternative(ur choice)

First let me say "Long time away and it's good to be back"! So I have a suspected poser at my work, I will confirm or deny via the appropriate means. He greeted me on the first morning we met with, "Greetings SF brother, man these folks just don't know what we went through". I had no idea who or what he was. So after quite some time of enduring what I believe to be BS claims he has told me the following. 1. He retired in 89 after a high profile career with 10th. 2. He never went to jump school because the Group commander just had him "jump with the gang" and blessed him with his wings. 3. Ater completing survival school for his tab, he was told he was the only person to ever put weight on during the course, and this was due to his superior survival skills that the school would probably have to adopt (he never did say if they did or not). 3. His missions were so classified that no one in the Group knew that his team weas even there or what they were doing. 4. During his time in group he constantly ran sub 3 hour marathons to stay in shape and on his 4 mile PT runs his times were usually 18-21 minutes. 5. He was a constant gym rat and daily benched 375, 3 sets of 10. 6. Delta was an idea he came up with and when he told somebody(?), they liked it and asked him to help develop the model. Maybe I am wrong and he is what he says, and if so, then maybe I should be envious. I was going to let sleeping DAWGS lie with his claims until he has recently started touting his SF days in meetings when my past is mentioned!! :confused:

"I was in black ops, and since we had long hair and didn't wear U.S. uniforms there's no record of my service."

Seriously. I ran into this idiot a few months after 9/11 when I was taking a welding class and SF were the first guys in Afghanistan. He was only 21 or 22 tops. I pulled out my coin and put it on the table. His response, "what's that?"

My fondest recollection was when I was reassigned to the Marion County Jail (Indianapolis) as the day shift commander after I made Lieutenant (LEO rank) in 1994. A deputy on the main desk asked me to come by on the first day. Ed Sosbe had served with the 1st Cav in RVN as a medic (he's since passed away from cancer due to Agent Orange exposure). Anyway, he tells me that he has someone (a correctional officer) that he wants me to meet. Shortly thereafter this overweight officer in his late twenties/early thirties comes into the room. I'm in my Lieutenant's uniform and this kid is in his correctional uniform.

My buddy introduces the guy (whose name I now don't remember, but starts with a "D", because we had no contact after this meeting) and says that we probably know many of the same people. He says, "Colonel R, I'd like you to meet C.O. "D"; he was in Special Forces in Viet Nam when he was captured by the NVA and held as a prisoner of war. They tortured him with Eagles music which is why we can't play it on the floors, because it drives him crazy." He looked directly into the guy's eyes and then said, "Colonel R is both Special Forces and a Ranger."

Before I could even get a word out of my mouth, the guy turns around and walks out of the jail. Later on I looked up his information in our personnel records and found that he would have been eight years old during the last year of the war. Just shows to go ya ....

You wouldn't believe the crap I heard come out of peoples mouths while I toured the country last year. At one Gun show in San Antonio, I had a guy tell me he was Special Forces... He went on and on and on about the training he went through, shooting all kinds of guns, he named them off and how he could blast away with an AK... yakity, yakity yakity yak... When he finally stopped talking I asked him. Do you know Robin Sage? "Oh yea I know him! He's a great dude man!" :rolleyes:

My favorite is what I call "The Twenty Question Dick Dance" and then after you finally get to ask just one question, What unit were you in? They shout, "5th Group Nam " and stomp away acting like they are pissed off. Me thinks not Brother!

I could go on and on but will spare you all! Just let me say that it has been my experience that 99.9% of real SF Guys are glad to meet a brother and will give you a man hug. Or at a minimum offer to shake hands. I've seen it over and over again.

A leg cook assigned to a Group during the short period in which the CDR USSOCOM authorized ALL personnel assigned to an SF unit to wear the green beret regardless of whether or not they were SF qualified:

I can call myself a Green Beret veteran because the Army gave me one to wear.

I love all of these! I've heard two recently I want to share..

1. Parking lot of Harbor Freight, feller drives up to me and asks for money. He claims he was an 18D, dispatched a guy who killed his wife and daughter in a drunk driving accident and just got out of jail. Hard times right? I ask what part of the 18D course any PETA member would take issue with and he looked at me clueless. I kindly explained he was a liar in a not so nice way and he peeled out fast. LOL

2. Bouncer in a local Fay. Club. I strike up a conversation with him and he wasted no time in claiming a Ranger background. Cool Right? When I asked what phase of Ranger School he thought was the hardest he claimed the "Road marching phase....

My fav so far is a really fat guy wearing a Ranger tee shirt in a grocery store parking lot and I asked what Bat he was in, he fired back A company 2/75 or something like that. He asked me if I was a Ranger and I said "no I spent of my time in Special Forces". He said he was also a former 5th Group guy. I then asked what ODA? He replied (and I kid you not) "1st Platoon ODA."

I would have called him a liar but I was too afraid he would eat me. He had to be pushing 450lbs......;)
