Johnny “Sarge” Thompson

Our Brothers over at the Guardians of the Green Beret did the work on Johnny Thompson who is a Special Forces fraud.

http://guardiansofthegreenberet.com/...kzbaS_tMKAVv8k

Johnny Thompson, aka Johnny “Sarge” Thompson, Green Beret… NOT!!
We were sent Johnny the fake Green Beret by some members of a Facebook Cav forum. They saw him making claims of being a Green Beret and Mercenary. He claimed to have been in Operation Just Cause. He claimed to have been both an 18D and 18B (SF Medical and SF Weapons Sergeant) in 10th SFG(A). He stated much of what he did for the Gov is still classified.
They sent in some pictures and his uniform was so screwed up that we knew he was a fraud. That being said, we still waited for records to confirm what we already knew before we went on record of him being a fraud.

While we were waiting on records, we searched old emails and it turns out he had been sent to another SF focused forum years ago and somehow fell through the cracks and they never exposed him as a fraud.
We were told he has a 10th Grp tattoo on his forearm with the dates he served there. We see he was active duty for 3 years as a 13B Cannoneer in a Field Artillery Unit, ETS’d and years later spent some time in the Tennessee Guard as a 19D. He never served a single day in the 10th. He never served a single day in any Special Forces Unit. He never even attempted to become a Green Beret.

Claims vs Facts:
11B20 in Panama False
13F Joint Fire Support Specialist False
35L Counter Intelligence Agent False
18 Years in Service False
Mercenary Parachute Inf Regiment South Africa False

I always find it interesting that Johnny Thompson and other posers like to have a cool moniker like "Sarge".

Chew that cigar stub Johnny "Sarge" Thompson - you've been outed as a poser

In some quarters, a "Sarge" is a shit eating bottom feeding trash fish. In this case the definition fits.

He served...and apparently honorably... but that wasn't enough.

He is not the only one that seams to be conflicted with their service. Went to a VFW the other day and ran into a guy with all kinds of Vietnam Ranger/SF stuff but he was only in his 40s. The regulars introduced us and we immediately wanted to beat him down for complete fraud. After lengthy interrogation he admitted to us he never served and that he had been a member for years. We paid and left. The president came out and asked what was wrong and we told him the guy was a fraud. He was dumbfounded. Then he said he was a great guy and told him great but he is a fake and a dishonorable person.

Guess this is why I do not join the VFW or AL....
