Ron Fernandez – The Green Beret that Wasn’t

| July 12, 2022

Our friends at the Guardians of the Green Beret (GotGB) recently posted a case on this Ron Fernandez fella.  The GotGB did some extensive work with this case so we can only scratch the surface.  This includes some ongoing conversations with Fernandez who claims he will make it all right with the press.

The Cliff Notes and why it lead to several people dropping a dime on him:  Ron was introduced to the University of Cincinnati ROTC as being with the Ohio Military Reserve.  But was he part of the 19th Special Forces Group?

When someone first met him, Ron was in ACUs with all the typical combat flair – Special Forces patches on both sleeves, Ranger tab, CIB, abn/aaslt wings. Nothing really jumped out as potentially wrong.  The person said Ron was modest about his claims – no outlandish war stories, etc.  “He was a decent and easy-going guy. Nothing really triggered suspicion and he seemed to know his stuff. He wasn’t a braggart, never made outlandish claims to us or the cadets.”

Suspicion was raised when Ron showed up to several events sometime later and never seemed to have his CAC card with him.

After lots of other suspicious behavior, someone inquired about his training records – no records could be found.  An effort was made to contact several commands that LTC Ron Fernandez claimed to be a part of – no one assigned by that name.

Ron was confronted and admitted that he was never even in the military.

So we reached out to Ron Fernandez and he admitted he was never in the military.

There’s some audio of his backtracking and shuffling of feet over on the GotGB page, so if you have some time you are in for a treat.

What drives someone to take their yarn to a level that Ron does?  Amazing.

Still trying to decide if the wife knew and when.  I imagine she may be thinking back to all the time Ronny was away and said he was deployed.  Is there a whole ‘nuther life to be discovered?

He was never in the military, but his enlistment at Brucie’s Bath House (entrance in rear) was a real success.

He rose from assistant towel wringer to condom sniffer in just one year.

He’s definitely APL material!

That what I was thinking.

The False Commander “Phony” Phil Monkress (CEO of All-Points Logistics) has got a potential hire here.

I mean, this dude has “I love the field” written all over him. Hanging out on a land nav course w/ ROTC cadets? Really? That is”out of the box” posing right there.

I am thinking Phildo could put this dude in charge of HR or MWR. Phelhin’ Phil Monkress cannot let this type of talent go to waste.

As far as MWR, the towels and basketballs are not gonna check themselves out.

Ditto with the Library Books!

Hack Stone

He is more than qualified to lead the All Points Logistics Ethics and Management Training Departments.

I wish we could find out where ol’ Ronny went when he told his wife he was on deployment. Maybe his wife will chime in on this forum and fill in the blanks.

Always wonder about these posers with the gullible spouses. You are married to a high speed low drag Special Forces Officer, yet you have no dependent’s card, you don’t socialize with his teammate’s wives, and have never been to a social function sponsored by the command. What’s the point of being married to Lieutenant Colonel if you can’t through his rank in the face of his subordinates spouses?


What is interesting and funny is when both spouses are in the Military and both show up for social functions together in civilian clothes..and only a few know their military service…and rank.

Typical function involves guys getting with guys and gals getting with gals.There seems to be a thought process that only men can serve in the Military and that all men are active duty.

When the gals get together, the gals with pride talk about their hubby being in the Military. Amongst them is an female Active Duty Soldier who listens, because that Soldier is also proud of her hubby.

The embarrassing part is when both genders regroup. The female Active Duty Soldier is introduced to the crowd with her Active Duty Soldier husband.

Talk about awkward…and a setup..😉

The typical stereotype questions comes, especially when they learn the female Soldier was in 2 Combat Theaters and outranked their hubbies.

“Were you a Nurse? National Guard? Reservist? A Private?”

We Is Bad. 😅🤣


I’d love to be a fly on the wall for that!


To be honest with you, Graybeard, we both quit pulling that stunt. It did (for a while) make a good “war” story.

We finally realized how immature we were and became upfront about our service. However, we did not divulge our rank. Our parents (retired Army) were baffled. Guess it was “old school” to use a retired rank. We quit “using” our “ranks” as “titles” when we retired. We just wanted to blend in. Grow out our hair. Quit using acronyms. We eat meals, not chow. We go to the bathroom, not a latrine. We sleep on a bed, not a cot. We run, not double time. We are Mr and Mrs.

Dual Military Couples with kids may now be the norm. When we met one set of in laws parents, all 4 of us had something in common. We served and retired and went on to other adventures.

Again, we apologize for our crassness. Was not fair to those gals what we did to them. They are and still are good and admirable women. Thank goodness we did not share that arrogant stunt with our kids.


Graybeard: We thank you and KoB and others on TAH for being patient with us on some of our crass comments.

No excuse for our childish behavior what we did.

A long time ago, Sugar was supposedly the “excuse” for arrogant behavior. culprit.

Just HAD to get in that Dirty Harry scene, ESPECIALLY with others trying to make us feel “guilty” about the 2nd Amendment.

Who Is We, Sucker?”

“Smith, Wesson and Me”:


“Pietro Beretta and me” don’t have the same ring to it.

“…crass comments…” “…childish behavior…” *giggles* Nah ninja girlfren’, No apologies needed here. I make a very spirited attempt to keep my language clean here and generally fail miserably in that attempt. I do fairly well when speaking cause I can think faster than I can talk and catch myself. Only Army Mom thinks its cute when I try to self censor. And yeah, I am as cute as a little cuddly teddy bear and as sweet as any scoops of sugar. Remember tho, C-4 does come in small packages.

On the childish thing…heh heh…I may have grown older but I refuse to grow up. And like Deacon Graybeard, I’d love to have been a fly on that wall too.

My friends would make a nice re-inforced rifle squad…or a full gun bunny crew. Messrs. Cohorn, Colt, Enfield, Kahr, Kimber, Mossberg, Rossi, Savage, Sharps, SKS, Smith/Wesson, and Taurus.

Pen and Ink Change: “through” should be “throw”. Hack Stone Publishing regrets the error.

Its easy.

Its called the All-Points Logistics FRG!


He was at his favorite bathhouse perfecting his gargling skills. 😜  Come one, come all.


….the cadets have more service than he does.

A Proud Infidel®™

A Joe in Basic Training has more service than he does!

Mustang Major

An enlistee sitting on a bus after taking the enlistment oath has more service and at least two real stories.


Three points:

  1. This case has Sock Puppet written all over it; hopefully this’ll draw at least one in to TAH. We haven’t had a chew toy around here for quite some time.
  2. There has to be a motorcycle; a leather vest covered in POSer bling; a desert camouflage doo-rag; a desert shemagh scarf; and a pair of dumbass-looking white-framed mirror-lens wrap-around sunglasses involved somewhere in this steaming hot POSer mess.
  3. I’m betting that this POSer has been lying to his wife since they first met, and that she swallowed all of those lies hook, line, and sinker because she thought that she had actually landed herself a gen-u-ine “war hero”. My guess is that she is livid right about now.

Spot on, Mick…ya nailed him. Probably not as hard as he got nailed during his tours of dooty @ Brucie’s Bath House (enter thru the rear) and he prolly won’t enjoy his nailing here as he does at Brucie’s.

Can’t believe that I am, again, the FIRST (ht 2 Roh-Dog) to make a motion for the deployment of the Vaunted TAH As(s)teroid of Insults upon the lying POSer Ron Fernandez. Maybe that will give this attention whore the attention he needs and possibly bring forth some sock puppets.


Can I get a SECOND and an AYE?


Second! Where’s the AYE!

The Stranger

Con una chingada, SIIIIIIII!


I’m here late to the party as usual.
Duly noted. I do believe I have one more previous in the on circle batting box I’ll be with you shortly.
Blame NASA & The VA.
They’ve been keeping me occupied of late.


Gee Whiz.

He was an easy find. Found his Facebook account, his wife’s Facebook account, his mother’s Facebook account with lots and lots of pictures.

Pictures that matched the pictures on Guardians of the Green Beret (Airborne picture, car)

His dimples gave him away.

The picture of him in Blues is a very old picture. Dude has Step-Grandkids.

He is also (don’t know current status) a Freshman Head Coach.

3-2-1…Most likely, those Facebook accounts will go POOF.

Saved lots of pictures.

We feel sorry for his wife and Step-Kids, his Grand-Stepkids, his Mom…everyone that he deceived.


Wow…What An Insult.

fernandez phony 16.jpg

Another Insult.

fernandez phony 18.jpg

Dude with his better half.

Am hesitant on posting his Facebook account since it has his wife’s name and picture.


Picture reference above statement.

It’s him.

fernandez phony 2.jpg

Mental Illness Is A Terrible Disease.

The ones that end up paying the price for not telling the truth are family members.

So sad. For his Family.

For him. Because mentally, he really needs help.


For those who have access to Facebook:

His Facebook page has a picture of a German Shepard.

Again, am hesitant about posting his Facebook account because of his wife and family.

He and his wife married late in life. That picture of him in Blues is old.

The dimples gave it away. So did the picture of the German Shepard.

“Vanity Versus Pride: For a well-worded explanation of this distinction, we might look to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, in which the character Mary opines: “Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.”


Another thought.

If he had passed away and his family wanted him buried in a VA cemetery (to include Arlington) with a VA headstone, with his full dress blues and bling-bling with a full military funeral/honors..

Who knows. It could be possible. We have seen others on TAH who were identified as being buried in a VA cemetery who never served one day…only to family members pay to have their remains dug and reburied.

Then again, if the truth came out after he died. We have seen those cases time after time, especially when Family members try to get $$$ from the VA after the death.

IMHO, the worse ones are those claiming POW status.


“He and his wife married late in life.”

My guess is that she’s probably very gullible, and also probably very naive about anything related to the realities of military life and what she could expect to experience as an actual military dependent.

Sadly, I’ll bet that he’s been pouring on the POSer lies at the cyclic rate from the moment that he first met her, and she just never knew any better.

Now that she knows the truth, I hope that she snaps this betrayal/embarrassment off in his POSer ass.

Green Thumb

I wonder if the wife will divorce him and clean him out?

Maybe old Ron here should seek counsel from Phil Monkress and his fake Navy SEAL inspired divorce.

Mustang Major

Why bother. No military retirement to split.

Green Thumb

Good point.

Probably covered in the All-Points Logistics basic entry program.


If that is supposed to be him, how is it that he is kitted up wearing a military parachute?


Did this POSer assclown actually go on to jump out of that C-47, or was he just hanging around the flight line that day playing dress-up in his paratrooper costume and posing for photos?

Prior Service

I have a friend from my Enlisted days who routinely jumps from C47s down in Florida with a company full of airborne vets. He even went to Normandy to do so with a group that all wore 1944 vintage 101 and 82 Abn Div kit. Point is that it is entirely possible to jump from C47s with mil standard chutes wearing whatever you want. Certainly would play into stolen valor opportunities if you wanted it to.


Fernandez certainly was dedicated to his fraud and valor thieving. He musta spent several grand on all those uniforms. He even bought a field grade officers’ mess dress uniform. Those Navy/USMC jump wings made me suspicious.


Good catch re: USN/USMC jump wings.

A Proud Infidel®™

How much did he spend on uniforms to support his fakery?

FTR, I have a nice new Rosebud Torch if youknowhutimean!

Hack Stone

Probably a lot more than the Round Ranger spent on his Army bling, but to be fair, Round Ranger had to finance his fantasy via the child support that his wife was drawing from the first husband.

“I don’t know why they call this stuff hamburger helper. It does just fine by itself, huh? I like it better than tuna helper myself, don’t you, Clark?”

Round Ranger saying Grace at the Christmas Dinner.

A Proud Infidel®™

I’d forgotten all about that lard-bellied POS, I assume he’s still getting fat off of welfare?


Our hero here had ACU’s, the new camo’s, the ASU, and officer’s mess dress, plus all that bling. With footwear and shirts, I am thinking at least 2 grand.


Are we all in the mood
for another scenic recon drive,
a surrendering of the phony uniform(s) & medals,
and then a new (2nd!) scheduled BURN EVENT?

Yes, it’s worth the Pennsylvania Turnpike tolls
and the $5+/gallon premium fuel.
Then again,
I may just shunpike on I-68 to Morgantown, WV,
or even make it a historic fun drive
on original US50
all the way to Cincy.

Let me know, guys.
I still have lighter fluid left over from last year.

A Proud Infidel®™️

I have a grill-sized can of propane and a nice big Rosebud Torch, just a-sayin’!


Ronson and BIC did the trick.
But thanks for a great upgrade suggestion.

Well, Ronbo, you are a particularly strange type of stupid.


Living the lie for nearly 30 years? Passing out fake commissions and getting hero tickets to ball games.

Just another cock sucker.

We all hoped and prayed for some fearless, determined sock puppets. But unfortunately, our hero promptly fessed up to the GotGB guys. So we have no takers. Nowadays there just aren’t any cretins to do sock-puppetry; it is becoming a lost art.


I, too, miss those golden, olden days when fearless POSer Sock Puppets would relentlessly charge towards the TAH perimeter wire again and again in futile attempts to get Team TAH to believe that their bullshit POSer claims were true.

— SIGH —


Our very own Jonn Lilyea in 2014 calling out a Phony Marine.

One minute, 25 second video.


MarineDad61 also had a great video on the burning of a jacket of a phony Marine (see above picture he posted).

Very commendable that he did that.

Thank You, MarineDad61 for re-sharing. Don’t know if your video was deleted from YouTube.

I loved his quote “GO unfuck yourself!”


It’s not even worth stirring the foo-gas anymore.

How do you find a wife that believes everything you say and does so year after year?

Ron Fernandez’s bride had so many opportunities to uncover, no make that stumble into his lie.

“Honey, how come I don’t see a deposit in the checking for your drill weekend?”

“How come your Army buddies never come over?”

“Can I see where you go on weekends?”


Green Thumb

We need to bring back the tournament.

This turd has skills.

Just saying….


I currently serve as an Ohio National guardsman. About 2 years ago I was called on state active duty orders during the COVID whatever. I worked with Ron at a food bank for a few months. There were other members of the Ohio militia reserve working alongside guardsman as well. He was always very positive to be around and may have overused “hooah”. Probably got caught up in his fantasy. A lot of the Militia guys were overweight LARPers.
