Brian Magyar; phony special forces soldier

| April 23, 2017

The folks at Green Beret Posers Exposed send us their work on this fellow, Brian Magyar. Yes, that’s the third award of the Combat Infantryman Badge on top there and he looks a bit too young to have served in World War II;

In fact, the Army doesn’t remember awarding him any of that crap he’s wearing;

His records say that he was a Signal Corps wire rat in Germany and at Fort Campbell – not Special Forces. His records look like he pencil-whipped them, too, while he hand-carried them between assignments. I don’t know what the “SF Path Finder Award” is. I’ve been to the Jungle Operations Training Course twice, but it’s not in my records because it wasn’t an official Defense Department school. If it was, it wouldn’t be referred to as “Jungle Expert”. It looks like he rocketed up to the rank of Specialist in his more than eight years of service – not the type of soldier who would be awarded a Meritorious Service Medal (MSM).

    What a unique way to wear the blue cord.

    • Jonn Lilyea says:

      I think it’s a German Marksmanship award.

      • some guy says:

        Correct, that’s the Schützenschnur in gold – which officers aren’t allowed to wear. But who’s counting, given all the other stuff he’s already parading around?

      • mr. sharkman says:

        It is. And scoring ‘gold’ is no f’ing joke.

        Of course his is gold.

        Shane (Alan Ladd) would probably score silver and wear it with pride. 😉

        p.s. For you nonbelievers, Shane Lives.

    • 26Limabeans says:

      I think it’s a hand mic.

    • Yef says:

      That’s not the infantry blue cord.

      • rgr769 says:

        You are correct. Plus Army Special Forces (an officer version of which he is trying to portray) does not wear the blue rope. Of course since this E-4 phony douche never earned hardly any of the bling he is wearing, he should probably rock the rope too. I love the CIB with the star and the German jump wings. Just another wiredog who has apparently lost his mind.

  3. Ex-PH2 says:

    All this glory before breakfast!

    Man! Blinded by it all!

    What are those oval pins he’s wearing?

    • IDC SARC says:

      on the right?…

      Looks like Jump Master/MFF Jumpmaster/Air Assault: all pinned over the SWCS Flash

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Isn’t the flag pin supposed to go on the jacket lapel?

      • IDC SARC says:

        I think what you’re seeing as a flag pin is actually a Pathfinder Badge

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Hard to tell. The image is so small.

        • rgr769 says:

          It is the Army Pathfinder badge, the one he refers to in his doctored records as “S.F Path Finder.” The Pathfinder course has nothing to do with Special Forces or the JFK School at Ft. Bragg. The course, I believe, is still conducted by the Airborne Department of the U.S. Army Infantry School at Ft. Benning, GA. Also, back in the time he was in the Army, that badge was a patch worn on the lower sleeve of the Army green class A uni.

  4. Frankie Cee says:

    I left him a message of love on his Facebook page:
    “Dood! You are now World Famous. And OMG! you have been in combat since WW-II. That is some shit there. And the way that you wear that Blue Cord, WOW, No one else was smart enough to figure out how to wear it like that. Click on over to this link and see how famous you are, and read the comments that are coming in for you:

    • IDC SARC says:

      Looks like he field stripped his FB page…nothing up there now except the proud and round poser portrait

      • AZtoVA says:

        Looks like he set it all to Private. And his photo looks like he’s about to cry a river about being caught.

        He can run, but he can’t hide….

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      His pic has been getting passed around all over Facebook so his newfound internet fame isn’t just here.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      The WWII stuff is just – well, incredible, isn’t it?!?
      Does anyone think that maybe he caught ride in the Wayback Machine to participate in the European Theater?

      • 11B-Mailclerk says:

        “European Theater”?

        As in “La Cage Aux Folles”?

      • Skippy says:

        Definitely shops a lot at the goodwill. I don’t see him going to a clothing and sales to buy his third award CIB
        It still amazes me that down at Ft H or lost on the boarder
        They were selling 3-4 of them a month
        A lot of AITs are getting ready for life after the military

        🤣. 🤣. 🤣. 🤣. 🤣

  5. Claw says:

    One would think that a CWO5 would at least have the Viet of the Nam related ribbons in proper precedence sequence.

    Those Warrants. Sometimes you just wanna go “Ugh”.


    • Mick says:

      Yup, those Viet of the Nam ribbons are a nice touch, especially since his Army service started on 23 June 1975, and South Vietnam surrendered on 30 April 1975.

      Totally legit.

  6. Sapper3307 says:

    I like the backgrounds on all of his wings, perhaps they came in a pack of three.

  7. Commissar says:

    Such a mess.

    That Jungle Expert patch he is wearing was once authorized back in the 80s. But was no longer authorized after they closed the school.

    25ID has authorized a Jungle Expert tab for local wear now that they have revived the school.

    I do not think the badge/patch he is wearing was ever authorized for wear the way he has it on.

    His three ovals on his wings are ridiculous.

    The whole uniform is a clusterfuck. And he is wearing it at a military event?

    It is also his Facebook profile picture.

    • 2/17 Air Cav says:

      Holy shi’ite! You actually contributed a comment that is pertinent to the post and isn’t political. I knew you could do it. In appreciation, I will not use your actual name.

  8. Doc Savage says:

    Block 4. ASSIGNMENTS

    At the bottom lined out: Not recommended for further service.

    Cant imagine why….

    And the AAS “repell master” just kinda makes me shake my head.

    • Jonn Lilyea says:

      If I remember correctly, E-4s were QMP’d at eight years back then.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        1983, that was during the Reagan Years when the U.S. Military was jettisoning all the duds and slugs they could.

        • 26Limabeans says:

          And pouring money into the defense budget. I had my choice of jobs when I graduated in 83. Thanks Ronnie.

          • Doc Savage says:

            I joined in 84…retired in 2008; in retrospect, the changes we saw and experienced were huge.

      • Hondo says:

        Can’t remember for sure, Jonn – but it was certainly not far from that. I’m thinking the RCP for E4 was either 8 or 9 years in the early 1980s – and may well have changed from 9 to 8 (or 8 and a few months) about then.

        • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

          When I first ETS’ed in the early nineties E4’s with eight years were QMP’ed, ditto for E5’s with twelve years.

      • Skippy says:

        That’s what my uncle Skip said after 82 they were cleaning
        House and rebuilding after peanut head tried to wipe out the

        • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

          Quite true! During the Jimmeh Kahtuh years it took a lot of dickstepping to get kicked out versus the Reagan Years when they jettisoned as much ash and trash as they could.

    • rgr769 says:

      You have to admit, he looks pretty repellent and he is likely a master-baiter. He has probably resorted to his douche parade to get laid.

    • HMC Ret says:

      “At the bottom lined out: Not recommended for further service.”

      I saw that. Could it be more obviously pencil-whipped? Damn, that guy isn’t even trying. Yep, that’ll pass as legit.

  9. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    What a booger-eating pisspants sparkle butt of a toad booger! He’s hugging a Soldier in ACU’s so I wonder what kind of an occasion he wore that Soup Sandwich of a uniform to? Pretending to be a Warrant Officer, let alone a CW5? That’s about as smart as pretending to be a USN CPO.

  10. madconductor says:

    I let him know he was famous now, embarrassing, but famous. I love the rope.

  11. sj says:

    Ah yes, Wire Rats. Hardest working guys when in the field and problem children when in garrison.

    Wire Platoon in the 82nd was my first command.

  12. Ex-PH2 says:

    It’s obvious, isn’t it? He’s opting for the rank of Space Cadet. Has to be.

  13. OldManchu says:

    Brian Magyar is so fat, when he has a jump mission he gets the entire C-130 to himself. With the ramp down.

  14. 26Limabeans says:

    “Tactical Wire Operations Specialist”

    Well there you have it. Don’t SF types use wire
    in tactical situations like strangling bad guys? The guy is legit.

  15. Ex-PH2 says:

    I figured out what the ‘SF Pathfinder Award’ is. The Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts give that one out at badges presentations. Hard workin’ fella, isn’t he?

    I’ll be he likes Belgian waffles, too.

  16. 26Limabeans says:

    I hate his TV show. Guy comes up with the lamest shit to unass himself.

  17. 26Limabeans says:

    Green tabs on the epaulets?

    • Andy11M says:

      Combat Leader Tabs. I felt badass when I finally made Sgt and got to add them to my A’s. I guess an actual SF WO would wear them if he was part of an ODA?

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        If I remember correctly the only ones wearing them were ones who had a position in the Chain of Command or NCO Support Chain (Squad Leader, PSG, Platoon Leader, 1SG, CO and so on), thus Inquestion the validity of a Warrant Officer wearing them.

        • Hondo says:

          Pretty sure that a WO in a designated leadership position (OIC, Shop Chief) also wore them, API.

          Perhaps Tony 180A can “answer the mail” on this one re: SF WOs assigned to ODAs. I’d guess he’d know. (smile)

          • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

            Awright, I stand corrected.

          • rgr769 says:

            SF WO’s replaced the 1lt XO’s of SF ODA’s. I don’t know if they wear the leader tabs, but since they are 2nd in command, I would think they would.

          • Tony180a says:

            Hondo I have seen 180A’s serving as the SFODA Commander wear green leadership tabs on the old class A uniform. This guy is such a steaming bowl of shit soup I don’t know where to start. It’s ironic I just attended a promotion party today for a buddy who just pinned on CW5 last week. CW5 180A’s are a very small exclusive club. For this turd to try to claim membership is worthy of a Rodney King Ass whipping!

            • ex-OS2 says:

              “worthy of a Rodney King Ass whipping!”

              Fire up the camcorder and lets get this party started!

            • Hondo says:

              Thanks, Tony. As I said above, I figured you’d know. (smile)

              Regarding a beatdown for this tool . . . it wouldn’t take several guys with nightsticks, nor is he worth that kind of effort. One real SF troop (officer or enlisted) would have him p!ssing his pants and begging forgiveness within 30 seconds – without laying a hand on him.

              Any WO5, in any specialty, is a rare breed and a true master of their craft. They all have my utmost respect, sight unseen. Please pass along my kudos to your buddy.

        • rgr769 says:

          Back in my day, they were called “combat leadership tabs,” and one had to be in a leadership position in a combat arms unit. For example, I wore them as a platoon leader, company and ODA commander, but not as a staff officer in infantry and special forces units.

      • Black Bart says:

        …..No Andy….. no they wouldn’t. While I would like to speak more I am just stunned at all this man and all his glory…

        • Black Bart says:

          I stand to correct myself…. I have never seen them. Not that someone hasn’t, I’ve just never seen them (13 years in Group).

    • Green Thumb says:

      Leader Tabs.

  18. JimV says:

    He is a CW5? Really. And where is his Signal Corps brass?

    He’s a Tard. Nothing to see here.

  19. Hondo says:

    “Magyar”, eh? Hmm.

    Hé Magyar: egy seggfej, és egy hazug zsákruhát torkát.

  20. Green Thumb says:

    What a fat tool.

    I feel sorry for the dude in the picture with him.

    His son, perhaps?

    Can’t pick your Father but if it is he son, I bet he wishes he could.

    What a loser.

  21. Pineywoods NCO says:

    What in the double hell is this douchebag??

    CW5, my ass. No self-respecting CW5 would have a uniform that can barely fit or dress pants that look like they just came out of the dirty clothes basket after a six-month stay in there.

    Let me beat everyone else to the firing line.

    Dick weasel cocksucker!!

  22. Skyjumper says:

    Meh, this dudes got nothing on these guys.

    If you run out of jacket space, you can always use your pants legs.

    Course, I’d adjust his “accouterments” a bit for him myownself, given a chance.

    I’d start first with wrapping the blue grunt cord around his neck……tightly, to be followed by tacking the CIB to his forehead, minus the clasps.

    Blödes Arschloch!!

    • some guy says:

      LOL, that pic made my day! And here I thought our Army was a bit excessive when it came to badges. ^^

      I’ll add a “fetter Wichser” to your “blödes Arschloch.”

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Norkie Army Ooficers if I’m correct and I wonder if they have them on their backs as well like I saw in a WWII era Three Stooges flick where Curly’s character did?

  23. Skyjumper says:

    Looks like JFK SPECIAL WARFARE CENTER flash he’s wearing on his beret.

    • Sparks says:

      For a few dollars you too can be any kind of hero you want to pay for. We take Visa, MasterCard, American Express and PayPal.

    • rgr769 says:

      That is exactly what that flash is. He wants everyone to think that he was such a high-speed operator that the SF School insisted he be an instructor, perhaps an “S.F. Path Finder” instructor, to maybe teach finding your way on a path, like the yellow brick road.

  24. Sparks says:

    Uh excuse me, but this turd is wearing a third award of the CIB! Nothing but nothing grinds my gears like a phony CIB, much less a phony second and especially third award. Cocksucker anyway!

  25. Ex-PH2 says:

    With all that stuff, the badges and pins and ribbons he’s pulled together, and the relationship to WWII, why doesn’t he have a glider badge included in that inventory?

    • Skyjumper says:

      Word on the street has it Ex-PH2, that he tried earning the Glider Badge, but one look at him and the military decided the lift-to-drag ratio would be too much for any aircraft available. 😉

  26. RM3(SS) says:

    I wonder what he’s hiding under his third chin? Could it be the coveted “Golden Corral Rib Master” badge?

  27. HMCS(FMF) ret says:

    The Round Ranger’s lost brother from another mother!

    The real questions here is… does he know “Will Chamberlain”?

  28. Skippy says:

    About time we had a non-seal Posser…. I was starting to worry
    We Army folks were running out of favor with the turds

    enjoy your fame dip-shit.
    Thank you for making my Sunday funny and bright
    I needed a good laugh

  29. themainmane says:

    I mean I’ve seen some old warrants, but WWII might be a bit of a stretch.

  30. Mick says:


    Here we go again. More imbecilic Stolen Valor.

    Bring it.

    You are cleared hot.

  31. Sj says:

    I’ve never seen a Warrant at PT so maybe this explains his physique

    • Skippy says:

      I like it ^^^^
      I’ve never seen one at PT
      Or regimental formations
      Why hell
      I was at Bethesda Naval Hospital for almost a year
      And never seen or heard of one
      At Lewis before they retired me I swore I saw one at a free food
      Swag give-a-way it looked like a warrant bar but oddly
      Nobody knew who he was or why he was there
      The rumor was he was one of us broke HHT/MEDVAC company

    • jonp says:

      Now that you mention it I never saw one either. I’m sure they were just so high speed they didn’t want the rest of us to feel bad while they strung 4min miles together pumping barbells overhead singing “I want to be an Airborne Ranger”

    • SARC88 says:

      He looks like the phony who ATE a Special Forces Soldier.

    • Green Thumb says:

      I used to only see them in the bars or at the occasional “back room” poker table.

  32. Wilted Willy says:

    Why oh why does he have to be Signal Corps? I thought we were immune from these poser assholes? This fat fuck would need a tank parachute to qualify as airborne! I won’t even start on his nice array of fruit salad. I’m sure he must have picked all of that up at the local Golden Corral? I hope you enjoy all of your google fame you cocksucking asshamster! Go fuck yourself!!!

  33. Currahee John says:

    Finally, a JOTC SV! About time we got some “jungle love”!

  34. jonp says:

    He has The Mayflower but I don’t see the Pathfinder Torch. 3 CIB’s? All in 8yrs and as part of the Spec 4 Mafia. Stud.
    That bastard dishonors the good men and women of the Signal Corp I served with. Jesus, go be a SEAL or Combat Engineer or something.

  35. Usafvet509 says:

    Holy dogshit, it’s frickin’ SHREK stuffed in a set of greens! I’ll bet that soldier he’s got his filthy dickbeater around is mortified to even be halfway in the shot

  36. Berlin Bde says:

    I see by his DA 2-1 he was awarded the coveted “NATO Air Def. Qual Bad” and the “Miss. -Exp Qual Bad”, which I assume is short for Missile. What a bad Mo-Fo! You wouldn’t want to get between him and the mess hall door.
    Odd that most of the scribbled awards entries on his 2-1 are in the same handwriting.

  37. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    in that picture he looks like he’s about to cry, maybe he got turned down for a date behind a bus stop to blow his favorite wino for fifty cents?

  38. HT3 '83-'87 says:

    Looking at the National Infantry Museum FB account, I don’t see on the very short list of 3rd CIB awardees Lying Fat Fuck, so I’m guessing its the classic POSer mistake of going big of going home.

    Speaking of going big errr ‘yuuuge’…Brian Magyar is a phony Special Forces warrior. Did he have two uniforms combined to make one giant fat uni? The only thing this guy assaulted was a buffet. Probably knocked some kid out of the line off ire near the chocolate fountain and awarded himself a nice, shiny medal.

    Brian Magyar is a lying, fat piece of shit and not in the Special Forces.

  39. Les Pegram says:

    This turd lives in Carolina Lakes, North of Fort Bragg. I lived there from ’02-’09. This particular pic was taken at the marina after two of our residents were KIA shortly after 9/11. Many of our retired and active duty built a humble tribute to all of our Veterans who have fallen and this turd showed up for the dedication. Once the real deal SF’ers began arriving, he beat a hasty retreat I have personal first hand knowledge of him and run into when I lived there. I’ll be moving back the there o/a 10MAY17. Hopefully I get to see him again.

  40. HMC Ret says:

    Those four buttons on his jacket doing their best to maintain control of his morbid obesity are screaming in agony.

    Speaking of buttons, it appears the top button is a different color than the others. Could be the light, I guess. Maybe it’s a shadow created by his fourth chin.

  41. Skidmark says:

    I don’t understand life sometimes…For some reason it took until the 734th time I read the same “Cleared Hot” comment for it to not be funny anymore, surprised it took that long. Maybe I woke up on the wrong side of the road this morning.

  42. 13B/92S/02M says:

    He was SD “Snake” Plisskens RTO during the raid on Lenningrad

    Special Forces unit “Black Light”

  43. TheCloser says:

    He’s at 3:59 of the following Don Shipley video:

  44. The Old Maj says:

    Haven’t seen that German rope in decades. In the 90s Our platoon went off to train with the Germans and we were all hoping to get one. Unfortunately we were not able to complete all the requirements for a variety of reasons.

    A few months later one of the guys in the platoon shows up to an “A” inspection with the rope. This was back before stolen valor was a thing. We all made fun of him. I remember later after that guy got out of the service he got involved in some criminal activity and ended up going to prison. Even back then that was the way of things….

  45. Hall Of Shame Follower says:

    He’s wearing a 3rd award of the CIB.. He’s to damn young to qualify.. That would mean he was in Korea, Vietnam and War of Terrorism.

    • Jonn Lilyea says:

      Actually, the only 3rd award of CIBs have been given to World War II, Korea and Vietnam veterans.

      • Hondo says:

        Absolutely correct, Jonn. All legitimate 3x CIB recipients are WW-II/Korea/Vietnam.

        It will stay that way for the foreseeable future due to the extreme length of the Vietnam War CIB period – 44+ years (from Mar 1961 to Mar 1995, but with a later end-date in Mar 1995 than the start date in Mar 1961). This makes it impossible for anyone who served in the GWOT to be a 3x CIB recipient.
