Ok so Dr. Ralph Abraham does not want to respond to my email now it's my turn.

Dr. Ralph Abraham is running for Louisiana’s Fifth Congressional District.


April 1986 — June 1989 1st Lieutenant, Co C 2/20th Special Forces - See more at: http://www.ralphabraham.com/about/#sthash.PVPfsvw2.dpuf

The above dates are a flat out lie. We have your records Dr. Ralph Abraham.

Dr. Ralph Abraham was not assigned to a Special Forces unit until March of 1987. According to his records Dr. Ralph Abraham was assigned to, Co C 2/20th Special Forces until February 1988, that's 11 months total assigned to a Special Forces unit.

In April 1986 Dr. Ralph Abraham was a 2nd Lt, Special Forces did not allow 2nd Lt's in 1986, not on active duty anyway and I would guess most National Guard Special Forces units are the same.

Dr. Ralph Abraham was assigned to a Special Forces duty assignment for which he was unqualified and never qualified for. The real Special Forces soldiers would NEVER call themselves Special Forces members unless they were actually qualified.

Dr. Ralph Abraham never attended any Special Forces Qualification Courses, never even tried. Dr. Ralph Abraham quit Special Forces after only 11 months in an unqualified duty position. To call himself "Special Forces" is a joke and an embellishment of his real military record. It's also shameful to use our reputation a reputation he NEVER earned for personal and political gain.

Now Dr. Ralph Abraham you have our full attention and we are not amused. If you wish to debate these "facts" with me in a public forum I'd be more than happy to indulge you. I doubt I'll be hearing from you anytime soon.

What Dr. Ralph Abraham and his political staff fail to realize is how big this "story" is about to become. Soon a local reporter will pick up the story and then it will go national and his Special Forces embellishment and lies will make the headlines.

Yesterday my post was 5 pages back, now if you google Dr. Ralph Abraham & Special Forces you'll see we are just below Dr. Ralph Abraham's political webpage.

Dr. Ralph Abraham I'm not going away, not until your lies and embellishments make the news. Yeah, and I'm sure you're going to say to the public that a "staff member" wrote your bio and that the "years" you spent in Special Forces was only supposed to say 11 months. I also have a picture of you on a political flyer and under that picture it says: "Special Forces".

Dr. Ralph Abraham you were NEVER Special Forces Qualified.

You and David Oh might fool Joe Public but you're BS is not fooling us.

Dr. Ralph Abraham, Special Forces

Dr. Ralph Abraham is running for Louisiana’s Fifth Congressional District.

For those that think the good Dr. Ralph Abraham is not really misleading the public I give you one of his political flyers, it says:

"Dr. Ralph Abraham is a former U. S. Special Forces member, a veterinarian. rural doctor and currently serves in the Coast Guard auxiliary."

Dr. Ralph Abraham is a former U. S. Special Forces member is misleading and a flat lie in our eyes.

To be a "member of Special Forces" you need to be Special Forces Qualified. Dr. Ralph Abraham was assigned to a SF unit, served 11 months before quitting, completely unqualified.

I on the other hand once spent some time at Harvard! (Just walked through the grass at the university) So with that I'll say "I spent some time at Harvard and am a member of Harvard"

[Dr. Ralph Abraham] "I was there but I was never Special Forces qualified!"

[Staff] "Joe Public doesn't know that and it worked for David Oh, Joe Public bought it hook, line and sinker!"


I wonder what they think now that a real Special Forces Sergeant Major, Master Sergeant etc is asking about Dr. Ralph Abraham's Special Forces service! Funny I didn't see an answer on his FaceBook page...........

Time to move this thread where it should be, with all the other Special Forces liars and frauds.

Dr. Ralph Abraham and his campaign manager are about to find out the hard way what its like to lie about being in Special Forces.

Team Sergeant

I'm sure that when Dr. Ralph Abraham is asked to prove his Special Forces credentials he will simply pull out his Special Forces Qualification Course diploma and show it to the general public. Or of course his orders awarding Ralph Abraham the Special Forces Tab.

Dr. Ralph Abraham, you might fool Joe Public into believing you're actually a former Special Forces member but the real Green Berets know the deal, you're nothing but a liar and a fraud.

Prove me wrong, show the world your Special Forces Qualification Course diploma.

Dr. Ralph Abraham we know all you did while assigned to a Special Forces unit was wait to go to the Special Forces Qualification Course but you quit before ever going. We have your records, we know you quit before ever being Special Forces Qualified.

Dr. Ralph Abraham you are not a member of Special Forces, you know it and we know it and now the world knows it.

If my memory serves me correctly, C Co 2Bn 20th SFG(A) was in Columbus, MS, not Starkville, MS. The good Dr. was awarded an AAM during his time there, so says his campaign manager and graduated from airborne (paratrooper) school. Impressive credentials indeed!

See my post #3, I already called it........ a few days ago.

Luke J. Letlow , I guess it's not lying, embellishing or misleading in a political campaign until you're caught.

There's a war on and Luke J. Letlow is peddling lies about a non-combat veteran.

Luke J. Letlow you are a bottom feeding low life with zero integrity and now you've been caught lying by those you cannot refute.

Very soon the mainstream media will be calling and we will tell them the truth.

Well, the campaign manager has discontinued communications with me and BLOCKED me on FB . I asked him this simple question:

" Simple question for Mr. Abraham. Ask him if he was Joe Blow off the street and someone told him that they were a "veteran of Special Forces"....what would be his presumption be about that individual?
To which he responded: "Done with communicating on this."

I tried very hard to get him to understand what the "problem" is. He clearly doesn't get it.

Team Sergeant

TS, just a quick addendum - I have no doubt this guy is a grade-A faker... But I know for a fact that SF NG units DID allow 2LTs to join their units, because I actually went to the Q course with one of them. Or maybe he was reserve (this was in 91-92). Regardless, he was a butter-bar, and I remember being rather surprised...

Dude's name is on the tip of my tongue... He was a good guy but got pretty drunk at the graduation bar-hop and demanded one of our Robin Sage Gs (who we invited out with us) punch him in the face. After pestering the kid enough, he obliged, and I then transported him to Womack for a broken jaw <g>. We all had to write up statements so the poor E-4 wouldn't get in trouble for assaulting an officer....

Ahh, those were the days...

TrapperFrank
12-02-2014, 20:34
What you state is true, the NG had 2LTs on A-Teams for a long time after the active component had cut them loose. For some reason, the Guard just could not figure out how to make the warrant officer program work. All that said, on the good Dr.s campaign website, he is shown "posing" in a flight suit, wearing captains bars. To the uninformed casual observer, it would appear that he is a pilot in the air force, which is not the case. In the words of LBJ, "Nail the coon skin to the wall." Great work TS.

George,

Thank you for the email.

I actually asked Abraham's campaign about this earlier. According to them, Abraham did receive his green beret, but he got it before the Army added
-- and I think I'm saying this right -- a Q test, which upped the standards. So while he might not have met the current standards, he did meet the standards at the time.

That's what they say. If this isn't accurate, please let me know.

OK - he had a wee bit of plausible deniabilty up to this point and could have easily corrected it, but if the claims that, he's a lying, no-count, dyed-in-the-wool, politically motivated skunk whose striped, spotted, or whatever patterned hide needs to be nailed to the s**t house wall to show everyone just what type of smelly-@$$ed varmint he truly is. :mad:

O, what a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceive!

First step of getting yourself out of a hole, is to stop digging, doc

Had your chance to set the record straight and had your campaign manager instead call a bunch of Special Forces QUALIFIED veterans that they were un-American, for questioning your lies.

Running on a values based conservative stance and yet you lie and deceive people to get yourself elected.

Dr. Ralph Abraham I'm sure John Kerry is proud of you and your lies and fraud.



http://www.specialforcesassociation.org/about/membership/

"For Decade and General Members: Supporting documents must accompany all applications submitted which provide undeniable proof of Special Forces qualification. Examples of documents include the DD-214, Graduation Certificate from SFQC/SFOC, orders assigning a SF MOS, and SF Tab orders. Form 20, ERB, or ORB demonstrating assignment history is recommended for Decade member applicants. More than one document substantiating qualification is recommended. Simply being assigned to a Special Forces coded position does not denote SF qualification."

Abraham invites West Monroe Army Ranger to State of the Union

WASHINGTON, D.C. (KNOE 8 News & Ralph Abraham) - WASHINGTON – Congressman Ralph Abraham is bringing Sgt. First Class Lee Barnett to Tuesday’s State of the Union Address as his honored guest.

“All of us owe Sgt. Barnett and other men and women that serve our nation a debt of gratitude for their service to our nation. This is just a small way that I can show our veterans and active duty military that I’ll do anything I can to support them,” Abraham said.

Barnett, a West Monroe native, is a member of the U.S. Special Forces Command and a U.S. Army Ranger. He has been deployed on multiple deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq. Due to the nature of his assignment, further details of his assignment cannot be disclosed.
