Rudi Gresham, Fake Green Beret, who went AWOL

Back in 2016, we ran Rudi Gresham on the Guardians of Valor website.
Those links are no longer good so we decided to update the article and do a much more in-depth article that what happened the first time around.

Here's the link to the GOTGB article with about 90 screenshots and a video with Rudi Gresham the fake Green Beret claiming in his own words to have served with Col Ola Mize and under Gen Yarborough. Both 100% false statements.


He is also cited in the CNN interview (also in the video) as a Captain and Green Beret.

We have un-redacted records that shows he went AWOL in Sept of 1966.

This time around we also received an official response from the Special Forces Association, which pretty much states on the record Rudi Gresham the fake Green Beret snuck in with fake records and is not SFQ'd.

He actually only spent about 271 days on Ft Bragg total during his time in the service.

Lo, there do I see my father. 
Lo, there do I see my mother, and my sister and my brother. 
Lo, there do I see the line of my people
 back to the beginning.
 Lo, they do call to me.
 They bid me take my place among them
 in the halls of Valhalla
 where the brave may live forever.

My man in D.C. finds *nothin'* on this guy before 1987, which means either he was born fully grown, or his background is *so* top secret, it doesn't even *flag* "Top Secret" when you run his jacket.

Then again, it is possible that he is just a poser.
