Ron Worthey gets his time in the spotlight

| May 15, 2018 | 77 Comments

Last week, we busted Ron Worthey for lying about special forces service in Vietnam, this week he gets the fame and attention that he wanted from his local media at WAOW;

WAOW – Newsline 9, Wausau News, Weather, Sports

The Wausau-based veterans group Souls of Honor is disbanding, following fraud accusations of its former president Ronald Worthey.

According to watchdog group Guardians of the Green Beret, Worthey lied about serving in Vietnam, having a Silver Star and three Purple Hearts.

Military records show he served stateside and didn’t receive those awards.

The now standing president of Souls of Honor said he is working on forming a new group with a similar mission. He wants to reassure veterans in the community that although the Souls of Honor won’t exist in the same capacity it once did, the group will still be there to support Wisconsin veterans.

If you hoped that Worthey is different from other phonies;

Worthey could not be reached for comment Monday.

    That’s Awesome.
    😉 😀

  2. Ret_25X says:

    he is already forming his new “identity”…

  3. AW1Ed says:

    Fast results, excellent!

    Ole Stuffer got Stuffed.

  5. 5JC says:

    Maybe in his new group he can be a Navy Seal with at least a Navy Cross.

    • rgr769 says:

      Yes, Ron Worthey definitely has all the experience to make a fake SEAL based upon what we have seen here. All he needs to do is change some patches on his vest and pin on a trident and get a new hat. He could even go full Bernathian rutabaga and claim to have been a POW of the NVA.

  6. RGR 4-78 says:

    Ron “Worthless” Worthey wanted to be in the spotlight.

    Well Ron, how does it feel?

  7. Roh-Dog says:

    That arc approximating justice, the remainder involves a cactus.

  8. Atkron says:

    Elaine Benes called Ron, she said you’re not SpongeWorthey.

  9. Combat Historian says:

    Piece of Shit Ron Worthless all of a sudden reticent and gun shy about appearing and commenting in public. He wasn’t so reticent when he happily accepted the quilt from the Wausau Quilt Ladies with his lies sewn into it…

  10. 3/17 Air Cav says:

    This dumb ass has more patches on his.vest than my grandmas quilt!

    Just goes to show you how pathetic ones life can become when it’s built around one event in your life! In this guys case, it’s built around a non-event! Vietnam Vet my ass!

    • Claw says:

      And the pisser to the whole deal is, that earlier in the vests metamorphosis, the spot now occupied by a “Dinky Dau” patch, was taken up by a 2nd Award CIB.

      Yep, it’s true. I saw the “way back when” picture before he started cutting back on the amount of metal bling he was sporting and went with cloth patches.

  11. ChipNASA says:

    He went BIG and not it not only bit him in the ass, but it chewed his entire ass off, for all to see in it’s glory.
    He’ll really never be able to show his face in public again.

    You asked for it, Ron, you got it. TOYOTA!!!!

    /I’m old
    //$3,000 for a frecking new car, damn

  13. AZtoVA says:

    Was a bit leery of the FB site’s request for me to remove my post, but I’m very glad to see the organization did the honorable thing, and did it expeditiously. Hopefully they’ll do a full poser-purge as they reform.

  14. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Maybe these groups should try looking at a nice, yellowed and faded, DD214 now and then when anyone claims he served in VN and is sporting every award and medal except the archery badge. In any event, these places usually do not have one and only one phony SOB. Hell, Vinnie the Vest here was el presidente! For a good time behind the dumpster, the APPROVED stamp is yours.

  15. 3E9 says:

    Good riddance dipshit.

  16. MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

    He had me convinced with all those patches.

    Everyone knows VN SOF Vets always adorn themselves with a ridiculous amount of after market patches.

      Gee …. my dad doesn’t have a vest; neither does he wear SF ball caps nor bling.

      He must not be a real SF RVN vet ….


  17. Skyjumper says:

    According to the video, “Stuffer” had been on an “Honor Flight” for Viet Nam vets, which really ticks me off to no end.

    I would think he could be prosecuted for a financial gain since he lied about his Viet Nam service and as a result, got to go on the flight and in the process, took a true Viet Nam vet’s chance.

    I’m proud of my fellow cheesehead vets for booting this old, moldy piece of “chatter” out of their group.

    Last year, a VSO Chapter just about a 1/2 hour down the road from me, booted a phony Navy SEAL from their group who was their Post Commander and he even was the Wisconsin State Provost for that VSO.

    They booted his ass out from that position also.

    These groups NEED to do way better job vetting than what they are doing.

    Thanks for Wausau WAWO Channel 9 for putting this out to the public.

    Enjoy you notoriety Ron Worthey from
    Wausau & Waupaca Wisconsin, you piece of Scheiße!!

    • RGR 4-78 says:

      Speaking of financial gain, I wonder how much a hand sewn patch work quilt is worth? I have seen some sell for hundreds of dollars.

      Ron needs to return that quilt to the Ladies up at Medford who put a lot of time and effort into it.

    • 5JC says:

      This is why I wont touch most veteran organizations. A few bad apples fuck it up for everyone. If they would do their homework up front and in the case of the VFW keep out the not so honorable discharges this (and all the crooked bingo games that is like a national epidemic) would mostly go away.

  18. Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 says:

    What, no B.S.badge, he’s Worthy of that one.

  19. Club Manager, USA ret. says:

    Also gave their prime sponsor Wausau Harley an aw shit moment. Maybe someday people will check on these scumbags before throwing money at them. Well done Jonn.

  20. QMC says:

    Wow. He’s gonna need a new vest.

  21. Frankie Cee says:

    Since Ron Worthey was first exposed, I have been in contact with several members of the SoH, supporters of the SoH, and a couple that just knew him. His “small town” just got a lot smaller. Many of us wonder what he plans to do about his 5th Special Forces Group Tattoo. I suppose that the town that he lands in, when he tucks tail and runs, will have someone that can ink over it for him. Maybe tattoo a big porta john over it, to show where he put his honesty.

  22. Frankie Cee says:

    Ron Worthey Not a Green Beret just returned my call to let me know that he will be having that 5th Group Tattoo covered up most ricky tic. He is really feeling it today. Learning just how badly he screwed up.

    • RM3(SS) says:

      Right Frankie. I’ll believe it when I see the video. Or I can save him some money and bring my belt sander over. Leopards don’t change their spots, he’ll be running a new scam within a year, his kind is addicted to the atta boys.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      All I’ll say to Ron Worthey the BOGUS Green Beret is DEEDS, NOT WORDS.

  23. Talk about sticking your tit in the wringer…
    Ol’ Worthless Ron here just gave a command performance at it !!!!!!!
    He won’t be able to drive around Wausau without everybody pointing at him saying something like. “Oh look, there goes Douche Ronnie Worthless and his fake Green Beret !!!
    I think that if he goes to a bar in that town someone will kick his ass for him…
    Ron Worthy looked the part, played the part and after fooling a lot of people for a long time, got caught………
    Well; bye…….

  24. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    The proverbial lights were turned on and ROn Worthey scurried like a cockroach. I wonder just where he thinks he can slither off to now? after all, THE INTERNET IS FOREVER.

  25. m0311 says:

    Out of a dozen veterans associated with him no one questioned him?

  26. HMCS(FMF) ret says:


    Enjoy the fame… COCKSUCKER!

  27. HT3 '83-'87 says:

    Brianna Hollis…I’d hit that all day long.

  28. Jarhead says:

    What this asshat really needs is a big tat from Tyrone’s Double Entendre Tattoo Shop. You know, the one which reads “I’m Not Worthy”

  29. HMC Ret says:

    Welcome to your life of infamy, toad. Do you have enough room on your vest for just one more patch? If so, may I suggest the world famous PoS PATCH. Fess up and go away if you have any honor.

  30. Stephen McCartney says:

    It isn’t hard for any candidate desiring to join these groups to produce a DD-214 Lost it ? file for another.Questions on arrival of the “hero” and his stories ? go FOIA . This idiot had ALL the stigmata of a Stolen Valor disgraceful phony with the classic vest, beret and mouth opening overtime to anyone who’d listen. So why didn’t anyone check? Maybe everyone in the association ought to “produce the goods”and clean up their organization. Beware of what you’ll find.
