Terrill Welge; phony Green Beret

| November 23, 2017 | 56 Comments

Our partners at Guardians of the Green Beret share their work on this fellow Terrill Welge who claimed to be a sniper at 10th Special Forces Group and a Purple Heart recipient;

Yeah, he was a 13D Artilleryman who sniped at the enemy with 155mm artillery rounds. He did tours in Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan, he earned a Combat Action Badge, but no Purple Heart, no Special Forces training;

    Nothing like reading about a phony while eating my waffles & sausage and downing some Folgers, no sugar lots a cream.

    “I didn’t claim it anyone. It happened to be on Facebook page” Really? FB put it there? Zuckerberg? The Russians?

    Putting there so anybody can see it is was worse than just BS-ing around the bar. I’m sure you got accolades on FB for all your tough mission, right? Fuck you POSer. You shit all over honorable service.

    • MSG Eric says:

      Damn Russians, they’ll just try to ruin anything. Though if this guy professed voting for Trump, Zuckerberg could’ve been the one to do it! Yeah, that’s it! Zuckerberg changed his page to screw with him for being a Trump voter!

    Why would embellish a great army career. These guys fucking kill me

  3. HMCS(FMF) ret says:

    Wow… decorated for his service while in uniform and decided to go the “sooper seekrit skwirrl special feces warrior anal butt sniper at the ghey bar” route.

    Congrats, TERRILL WELGE on shitting all over your service by playing the “Stolen Valor Game”!


  4. Claw says:

    Another one who claims he is “Retired” who was QMP’ed at the 14 1/2 year mark for not being able to go from E-5 to E-6.

    I’m sure the “Up or Out” policy was explained to him many times, especially when he got to the seven years time-in-grade mark on E-5.

  5. Ex-PH2 says:

    Idiot! Shame, shame, shame!!

  6. NHSparky says:

    Nothing says shitbag like claiming what you didn’t earn, especially when you know better.

    Smoke yourself, E-5 Welge.

  7. Combat Historian says:

    “…it just happened to be on my Facebook…”

    No doubt placed there by the Special Forces Fairy for being an especially good boy that day for eating his Wheaties…

  8. AnotherPat says:

    Another Personality Disorder individual who does not take responsiblity for his own actions and projects/blames others (this time Facebook) for his own shortcomings. What a weak excuse.

  9. Green Thumb says:

    This dude looks like that other turd, Matthew Beck, down there in Idaho. You know, the clown that had all of the medals tattooed on his body?

    What a shitbag.

    I wonder if Phildo is their long, lost father?


  10. Sgt Fon says:

    a 14+ yr e-5 with 4 combat tours? something don’t fit with this picture. Underachiever RIF’ed or did something else happen that got him booted? this one pisses me off because he was a contemporary and a peer and just kind of pissed over 14 years of his life for no reason. I would have bought him a beer without the embellishment.

  11. Chip says:

    13D? He does the tactical data systems thingy. A down and dirty artilleryman is a 13 Bravo. Those are the ones on the the gun line and on the AP teams. I know because I was a 13B.

  12. Berliner says:

    Couple of things just looking at his DD214:
    1) He was not eligible to reenlist based on the Retention Control Point (RCP)changes effective February 1, 2014. The RCP for SGT/SGT(P) was changed to 14 years. They did allow those who’s ETS exceeded the new RCP to remain in the service until their ETS.
    2) Because he had not completed 15 years active service he was not eligible for the Early Retirement Program.

    I’m waiting for the day when somebody embellishes their service by falsely stating they were a cook.

  13. Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 says:

    I would not make any bets with this guy because he would most likely WELGE on the bet if he lost.

  14. Just An Old Dog says:

    As a former Cannon cocker it irks the fuck out of me when fellow Artillerymen art happy with what they did… a single fire mission will end more people than a sniper might get in an entire career. Being part of the team that puts that together is bad ass enough.

    • Chip says:

      Bingo. That is why I am proud. But this dude was a data type. Not a down and dirty artyman.

    • Seamus says:

      Two quick comments…
      Old Dog, I spent nearly two decades as an infantryman, making fun of you redleg wonders, but in my few short years on sniper teams I DEFINITELY had more effect using a hand mic and the BN Fires net than we did using the 24s or the 110s. Though most of it was using attack aviation, scout weapons teams, and our BN mortars, the couple of times we were actually cleared for the 155s (other than observing H&I fires) definitely made it into the highlight reel from my deployments on my busted up external hard drive lol.

      Secondly, I spent almost ten years of my career (2001- November 2010, when the army said go to bliss and I said “aw man, seriously?”) at 2nd BN, 3rd Inf Regt (Patriots!), the same BN as good old Mathew Beck. When I was at HHC in the sniper section he was a douchebag (and fat, to boot) in Bravo Company, running around with an M14 that we were fielding to SDMs in the rifle platoons. Had all kinds of war stories about sniper school and his bad-assery even then, but he would shut his fat gob as soon as anyone who was actually B4 showed up. None of us were surprised when we saw him lit up like a Christmas tree on every stolen valor site on the interwebs. We had a fuck ton of really good dudes in that battalion, and just two (beck, and Bobby Bales, who I considered a close friend) have been pretty successful in maligning the successes 2-3 made, including the battle of Zarqa in 2007.

  15. Yef says:

    So, why couldn’t he make SSG in all that time?

    FBS fat boy syndrome?
    Got caught with his fingers in the cookie jar?
    “The CSM hated me”?
    “I am too high speed for this unit. That’s why they keep me down”?

    Something smells funny.

  16. lily says:

    I wonder why his DD214 doesn’t list his Kosovo Campaign Medal?

  17. HMC Ret says:

    Honorary service and career now forever tarnished b/c you had to try to be someone you never could be. Someone explain this crapola to me.

  19. rgr769 says:

    As a former ODA commander in the 10th SFG(A) I should be highly offended by this POSer’s fakery, but it is mitigated by the fact that the fake SFers are neck and neck this week with the fake SEALs. Go ARMY! We have hope for a win this week.

  20. RM3(SS) says:

    Well I for one am relieved he didn’t claim SEAL. We have reached our quota for the month and are now looking for Recon/snipers. (why is it ALWAYS sniper?) Is that supposed to be some kind of super cool thing, or is it a byproduct of online RPG’s.

    • Seamus says:

      I don’t know!! Always drives me nuts! I think it’s a civilian fascination with the role. For those of us in the army, it’s not even an MOS, just something you do for a while if you’re lucky enough. I went to school in 2002 (class 06-02), and was a team leader in both A CO and HHC in 2-3, a total of 3 years, and when people ask me what I did for the army I NEVER say “I was a sniper”, I say, “I was an infantry NCO”. I spent Waaaaay more time as a fire team leader, squad leader, and rifle PSG than I did behind a long gun.
      My dad, though, who did one tour as an aero-rifle platoon leader, and one more as a Cobra pilot in Vietnam, always thought it was fun to introduce me as his son, the sniper.
      I really wish I could be a fly on the wall in the team room when these guys get busted. Would make for some really funny reality tv.

    • Hondo says:

      Blame NCIS. Remember: Gibbs character was a Marine sniper before he joined NCIS as an investigator.

  21. MarDet says:

    Hey Terrill Welge……you’re a fuckin liar you piece of shit! Enjoy Google fame you cum dumpster!

  22. Frank says:

    CAB? How do you fit a bayonet to a 155mm gun?

  23. martinjmpr says:

    “Alpha Team, bro!”

    Why did I suddenly think of this commercial?
