Matthew Beck; tattoo phoniness

| June 22, 2012

Several of you folks sent us this guy’s Facebook page, Matthew Beck. Of course Mary at POW Network was already on him and we’re already waiting on his FOIA, but he’s already sent out some of his “documentation” to folks who’ve been questioning him on his Facebook page. AKO says that he was in 2/3 Infantry at JBLM, but it seems strange to me that someone with all of those tabs would want to go slumming with a bunch of legs.

For example, despite that impressive row of tabs, here’s a picture of him while he was still in the Army in his uniform and there’s no stack of tabs;

He explains that his supervisor, “Daigle”, didn’t like tabs and made everyone take their tabs off their uniforms. Yeah, that would happen. He also claims that this “Daigle” devil made him take off his jump wings, too, but I blew up the picture a bit and the jump wings are there.

Over at the POW Network link, “Daigle” shows up and calls Beck all kinds of liar on Facebook. Ooops. having an open FB page does that to you sometimes.

Anyway, here’s a portion of his DD214 that he sent to someone;

Funny how it cuts off right before the “Block 18” where we’d get to see all of schools and accoutrements. But, hey, HazMat driver instructor course is just as grueling as Ranger School, right? Since his MOS (11B20) covers his whole period of service and there’s no mention of 18 series or a Victor identifier, it doesn’t look like he was either in Ranger or Special Forces units even without the “Block 18”.

And here’s proof of his secret squirrel creds;

He looks just like a Haji, don’t he? I’m sure no one knew he was a secret squirrel hairless, pale white boy in the clean right-out-of-the-package man-jammies.

And his ERB;

OK, so he was an infantryman, he earned a CIB, a Purple Heart and a Valorous Unit Citation (which is like giving everyone in the unit a Silver Star). Why can’t that be enough?

I wonder if there’ll be a line of folks to volunteer to help him remove those tattoos before that art causes him a serious ass-stomping.

    No powerpoint tab? I’m calling bullshit.

  2. Beck is an ASSHAT. says:

    I was in 187 with beck. He has always been full of shit. The tatts and shit he has said make me want to drive out to ID and pound him with a shovel. Knowning him well, I know this would be a waste of my time as his head is soild rock. Not a bit of room for a brain. Karma is a bitch. He had to know his false world of being Rambo would come crashing down. For all the other Vets who want to murder this AssHat don’t bother brothers, he is worthless.

    Nos. 44, 45:
    Thanks for the Honorable Mention of the M14 Rifle !!
    This was my weapon
    (and I do NOT mean video game weapon) .

  4. DR_BRETT says:

    No. 48 Yat Yas 1833:
    I thought you were discharged (or entered) in 1833.
    Seriously, thank you for being a Marine .

  5. A 17 month deployment for OIF 1? No fucking way. Everyone was home by Feb 2004. I wonder how much his buddy in S1 charged him to doctor up this ERB?

  6. Elric says:

    Shit! 23 years and all I got is my “Regular Guy” tab. I feel worthless.

  7. Joe Williams says:

    Dr. Brett, s request for (unoffical) advice. Which would you reccomend ,a low or high speed sander for tat removal?

  8. tramadoc says:

    DeWalt angle grinder to the tats with a 70% Isopropyl Alcohol solution to wash off the “residue”.

  9. Anonymous says:

    With a clover honey/fireant poultice, of course.

    I am going to give a different “perspective” on this piece of dirt that is broader than just another wanna bee trying to puff out his chest. That’s the Stolen Valor Act being possibly thrown out. Yes, we can complain all we want, and I respect that, but I believe all these misrepresentations and lies should be enough to put a man in jail. If the Supreme Court disallows the Stolen Valor Act, then its dirtbags like this who can march alongside of us at Veteran’s Parades and other like functions. And, they can make up all sorts of stories with no downside. And that is very upsetting to me personally.

    At least didn’t claim to be a former Navy SEAL – like a certain Army LT not to long ago. Wore black version of “Budweiser” on his ACUs – thats balls of steel! Got away with it for quite awhile before being called out – was a BUD/S washout. Just be proud in being a good soldier – not everyone is a Captain America Super Soldier type. No need for phony baloney – serve well, collect bennies, & move on.

  12. NHSparky says:

    I still can’t fathom why people would get tats of medals, etc. And Ray/teddy–I do in fact know a couple guys who got tats of dolphins on their chests.

    Lifer digits.

  13. Ex-PH2 says:

    I took a closer look at those so-called tattoos. They don’t look real. Real tattoos are well-defined and detailed, the colors are bright and they last a long time.
    These — thingies, whatever — are poorly defined, have no detail even in closeups, and the lines have spread, which is why I said they look like decals, the kind that little girls use when they want to let everyone know that they like Hello Kitty and Strawberry Shortcake.
    Oh! Wait a minute! He’s got man boobs, he wears a man-dress and wash-off tatts.
    I get it! I get it! He’s a girl!!!!!
    Sorry it took me so long.

  14. Joe Williams says:

    Need more advice, this time legal. Is it freedom of expression or speech for a straight right to the jaw? I have no, zero tolanerace left for these POSs! Can I claim PTSD since the VA has me rated for it? I chased a posr out ot Wallyworld last week. He was claiming to be a Marine spiper. Three seconds to expose him.

  15. teddy996 says:

    @65- no, but if you shoot them, the media will put the army on trial instead of you. That’s something, I guess.

  16. Ex-PH2 says:

    #65 Joe W — It would be much better to find a large pile of wood and a sharp axes and take your zero tolerance out on the wood while you’re producing a large pile of firewood. Or something, some activity like this, that allows you to work off the anger, like a punching bag at a gym.

    I know you have no tolerance for these jerks, but you’re taking it personally and they don’t even know who you are, so you truly can’t pull a Madea smackdown on them.

    I am getting a tattoo of my Certificate of Achievement & driver’s badge lol.

  18. fm2176 says:

    He was in my unit at Campbell, but I can’t remember him. Funny thing is, the only mutual friend we have is a questionable (I’ve been waiting to see him here) former E-4 that got chaptered out while he was in my squad in TOG. I’ll ask a few buddies if they remember him.

  19. KLowry says:

    I am this idiots ex-wife…and I will tell you…he has serious mental issues. Says that he has 6 purple hearts and 2 pending?? And it just keeps GROWING…Thankfully our relationship ended…unfortunately only after being shot at by a semi-auto, strangled, and beaten.

  20. Anonymous says:

    HA HA this is GREAT!!!! This idiot here, Matt Beck WAS my brother -in-law, and after what he did to my little sister, and put her whole family through,was ridiculous!!!! And to have gotten off on charges for shooting a gun one inch above my sisters head, beating her, stealing from mom, and still calls himself military is beyond repulsive! For the army to have put up with this shit not once, but twice with another female!!!! He isn’t military, military doesn’t to this, doesn’t or shouldn’t put up with this behavior! He is a freak that has slipped through the cracks, and I am so glad this website has caught on to his bullshit!!!!!

  21. KLowry says:

    Oh…and P.S. when we started dating he also told me that he was the guy that cut the head off the Saddam Hussein Statue…LOL oh my. I almost forgot about that..

  22. KLowry says:

    I believe…not necessarily knowing what an article 15 is…believe that his was for domestic violence charges against his 2nd wife?? Not positive, but believe that to be a reason that his rank also went down (pardon my lack of military terms). At least this is what I believe that I read during our divorce…

  23. Anonymous says:

    Hahahaha…….priceless.This guy is a major moron and it’s about time the rest of the world knows about his lies. I had to delete him on fb cause he drove me crazy with his bs

  24. ROS says:

    How many ex-wives does he have???

  25. desbriggs4 says:

    He has three if I’m correct. The sad thing is what this could do to his daughter!!!! Poor thing, even though she’s already kinda messed up!!! But like….what military has a video (supposedly ) on his phone of them bombing people????

  26. jujifruit says:

    If you notice on his ERB he’s flagged for overweight and Pt failure. thats what AA and KA mean.

  27. Paul says:

    Here’s something no one has brought up yet. Even if he did earn all these tabs, and I doubt he did, why would he tattoo them on his ‘combat patch’ side? If he was going to properly place them, the tabs go on his other shoulder. He would never wear a SF or Ranger Tab on that shoulder, but I guess if you’re gonna be ate up, you might as well be completely ate up!!

  28. Anonymous says:

    I guess being Mormon wasn’t enough.

  29. Anonymous says:

    Yeah, he did an undercover op with zero language proficiency. Details, details…

  30. Greyhawk says:

    Heh. You guys cropped the part of the picture that shows the profit/motivation.

  31. Greyhawk says:

    (But nice of you not to embarrass her, I suppose.)

  32. El Marco says:

    Really?!? I mean, f$#@king really?!?

    There is absolutely no end to human stupidity.

  33. Terminal 1SG says:

    Hmmm…..perhaps the ex-wife up there could verify if this dude is still in E. Idaho. I’m down the road in Blackfoot with nothing better to do….

  34. Green Thumb says:


  35. Green Thumb says:

    Oh yeah, the only tab this sack of shit is missing is the Honor Guard and President’s 100.

    Must have run out of room.


  36. Twist says:

    @87, I’m pretty sure if you look closely at his DD214 you will see that he did earn the coveted shitbag tab.

  37. Green Thumb says:

    This dude is way cool. I mean, who has he balls to tattoo ARCOM or AAM on their body?

  38. Green Thumb says:

    Extra shitbag.

  39. Green Thumb says:


  40. Green Thumb says:

    Tattooed Turd.

  41. Ex-PH2 says:

    Scared the tattoo artist.

    Did anyone send that photo of Beck in a Haji man-dress to the CIA?

  42. Green Thumb says:

    Wonder if he has some new ink?

    Maybe a NDSM?

  43. USMCBRIT1 says:

    @94-GT, Bet he’s one of those idiots that has a “W” tatted on each ass cheek. When he bends over it says “WOW” (but the “O” is way over sized-like it’s been stretched big time). He stands on his head and it says “MOM”-same deal with the “O”.

  44. Green Thumb says:



    Probably getting the Volunteer Service Medal as we speak.

    Right next to the OSD Badge right inside the rim of his two-hole.

    Fucking loser.

  45. Anonymous says:

    Yeah he’s still in Idaho, rexburg area. I went to school with this guy. He was a no good turd then too. I’m just a plane Jane vet, nothing more special than a few tours. When I go home people always bring him up when they talk to me. I always figured they where the ones exaggerating the story’s about him until I google searched Matt beck Purple Heart today. Who knows what he’s really done, I searched the Purple Heart registry and he wasn’t listed but it could be out of date. The second I saw a sniper tab tattooed on his arm I knew he had lost all credibility. I do t get why every one has to be Rambo.

    I would like to sit down with the retired 1sg from black foot i live in Rigby id. Yes thee tats areonthe wrong shoulder i know. It was a big fk you to the army. I got shit on bad after i got Hurt in Country. I never opened a fan page, my phules and erb and records didn’t even get looked at until after i woke up out of a comma in laundstuhl Germany, then to Walter reed, then to ft.Sam Houston.and back to Lewis to end up with no housing with serve ptsd and tbi and alot of other injuries. Get shit on by 2\3 inf. Then get moved to wounded warrior unit and med boarded out with no choice . And 3 congressional hearings later oh ya i got in deep shit and in trouble. The first article 15 was inseboardination to a pfc that was over a group of nco’s at the wounded warrior unit. Then my mechanic company that IF any of you knew me myself or my employees worked on you’re veh. Daigle put the flag for fat body although i met tape requirements and maxed all my pt tests with 300′ s. And no i was never in 3/ 187 inf Rakkasanss i wad in 2\ 187inf before they were disbanded aams i reputed to go to Lewis because of my first wife to be closer to home.

Nice timer of getting moved from scouts to Aco, to command group to Bco under daigle. And now all i do is help get vets there ratings and benefits from the VA, get hunting and fishing trips of a lifetime for them and stay busy retired. Went through a tough bought and went back to my old ways of hiding in a bottle after a good friend and roommate that was and amputee committed suicide in front.of me after living with me for 4 yrs them or friend did the same thing happened with another good friend 3 weeks later that was another 100 % disabled combat vet with purple hearts. My number is still the same 253-468-4655 if you guys want to know something come to the source not the BS, I’ve kept every record from mepps through all the schools deployments to medical retirements, to congressional hearings, from med board to VA ratings and time at VA and treatment now

    No one will take you seriously if you cannot even write at an 8th grade level. As an NCO you should have been familiar with AR 25-50. Doubtful.
