Dr. Ralph Abraham, Special Forces? Not even in his Dreams

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.

My guess is that it disappears from his website.

Looking at his affiliations I notice one missing.... SFA... WTF there Special Forces Lieutenant?

Dr. Ralph Abraham, Special Forces? What a joke.

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, a misleading lie.

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"

Does the Coast Guard know that they have a military fraud on their hands?

I'm sure the Coast Guard has the same military records I have, the ones that show Dr. Ralph Abraham spent 11 months assigned to a National Guard Special Forces unit and was never Special Forces qualified.

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...

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.

Seems it's all been explained to this reporter...There was no SF qualification course at the time and he was issued his beret.

Email response from a reporter who was contacted.

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.

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.

Voters be warned.

That is an outright lie and he (Abraham) knows it. I say send this all to his rivals and get that reporter spooled up on how it really works so he can go at him.

LOL, there was no Special Forces Qualification Course at the time......

This is getting better and better. Soon it will make national news and some "intelligent" reporter will put the pieces together and figure out the lies that are coming from the Dr. Ralph Abraham camp.

I do like that he's taken a page from David Oh's playbook and removed all posts in his FaceBook page that are asking questions about his "Special Forces" qualifications.

Luke J. Letlow, it will not be long now, your 15 minutes of fame is coming but on a national level. Soon the world will know of your and Dr. Ralph Abraham's deception, misdirection and outright lies.
