Matthew Beck

This is a case we worked for several weeks, we wanted to be sure we had all we could to verify or deny his claims. We will not post anyone until we are 100% sure we have all information available. Matthew Beck, James Beck, Served honorably but then decided to embelisih his already pristine record with lies. He received a PH for wounds, a CIB, Airborne, Air Assault, among a few others. But then he decided he wanted to be more. So he started claiming Ranger, Special Ops, and 6 or 7 Purple Hearts. Thanks to FredX for all his hard work on Mr. Beck. Here is his current Facebook page..http://www.facebook.com/matt1326.

 

And what POWnetwork has from us on him can be seen here….http://www.pownetwork.org/horv/horv_911.htm. So why would someone with such a great record need to embellish???

 

UPDATE: Mr. Beck came to our Stolen Valor Facebook page and tried to explain what happened.

  1. Guys claiming Sniper when he Failed Sniper school? Such a great career he had going, But cant fake that. No B4 and No Sniper on his ERB. Tool

    • his erb says platoon sniper, so he was tasked to a job, dont get caught up on schools, also if you look his incoming date to 101st is 9/11, it seems they let him hang out and take schools

  2. He`s a disgrace and should be stripped of any honors or medals he did recieve. Maybe even a dishonorable discharge since he was less than honorable.

  3. What a dipshit. He had a great service record(at least on paper- not so much by the testimony of his instructor), just to go and destroy it all. Also, I cannot get over the fact that he would tattoo the lies onto his body…

  4. GD, I can’t believe this. My name is Tristan Matthew Beck (and I always went by my middle name growing up) and I came from the 82nd with a CIB and PH. But I’m not a fat, lying breath-o-douche. What are the freakin’ odds, FML. If he can see this, way to F^€K up my name, turd..

  5. I served in the same battalion as this shitbag. The thing is, he is a hero. The battalion saw some real shit. But he was a moron, is a moron, and will always be a moron. I’m pretty sure he was in ammo section.

  6. Oh, and the Daigle he keeps talking about was the A CO, 2-3 INF REGT 1SG. And I know a plethora of tabbed guys that were in that company that didn’t seem to have any problems sporting their shit. Besides, CSM Bjerke never would have let that shit fly.

  7. This is really disappointing. I was in the same platoon as Mr. Beck during Afghanistan (OEF 1- Dec/Jan 01/02- Jul 02) and Iraq (OIF 1, the invasion), C co, 2-187th INF Rakkasans. Now, I was only with the platoon for 4 months of the Iraq deployment, then I went to the BN Recon platoon. But a lot of this does look like it it BS. It saddens me to see someone I fought with tarnish not only himself, but those that served with him and the NCO Corps.

    • I got PTSD, The voices in my head although at times are confusing have never told me to make myself anything more than what I was. This is just someone with an inferiority complex, wants to seem better than he really was.

    • During Beck’s deployment with 2-3 INF, 1SG Daigle, then SFC Daigle, was his platoon sergeant, 1st Platoon BCO 2-3. After 1SG Austin left country to go to the Sergeants Major Academy, 1SG Daigle took over from him. 1SG Daigle was a great leader and one hell of soldier who demanded excellence from his soldiers. This, perhaps, was one of the reasons Beck was kicked out 1st Platoon and got stuck in BCO HQ. Dude was, still is for that matter, a tool and a douche bag.

    • hey doc if you remember i came to 2/3 after 2 tours with 101’st then reup ed and was assigned to the lrrp’s unit but being they broke the unit up in feb of 05′ i either had a choice to go back to campbell which i should have done or stay in wa closer to home , i stayed and was assigned to Aco then csm berjcke yanked me out and sent me to HHC scout platoon, then wanted someone with combat time to run the show on the commad veh. crews. ie. me angel, and rayhoo all lived together, i got enough stoli sun rises in rayhoo to go meet the hot girl across the street, there married,well i had loaned out my 2500 05′ duramax to my soldier along with my enclosed 8 x16 enclosed trailer to move to on base housing cause he didn’t have a pot to piss in and my girl friend had my 04′ f250 king rach with her sister’s at the beach and rayhoo and angel had taken my 05′ 2500 silverdo z71 to work cause i was helping a soldier move i was stuck driving my old 77′ f250 ranger with the big block 460 little zooped up i got down nisqually hill right before the brigde on I -5 and the drive line snapped, i hitched hiked with a full ruck with a wasp ( washington state patrol, to 2/3 motor pool where, the ssg that had just got to the unit being a fkn cock sucker after i broke down i had called ask him for a ride and nada i called rayhoo and angel to come pick me up and he wouldnt let them so when i got to the motor pool i beat the fuck out of him with a shovel and my k pot and the pry bar under the bench of the stryker at which time here come csm berjke asking me whats up i told him i had the guy in time in rank and combat time but not yrs in, i got moved to Bco to fk head Daigle’s platoon that took all the airborne, ranger , and other quilfied soldiers and made us VC veh com.after i had already been to the battalion master course and the load master air force course and the master gunner school because of csm berjke. so if your going to tell a story tell the whole story.

        • No one wants to hear any of your bullshit run on stories any more dude. Telling more shitty lies does not make your other shitty lies seem more credible. Just. Fucking. Stop.

  8. So please you other brothers in arms out there that have done multi. Tours in the Stans and Iraq, or other shit holes in the world and have had to kill people and kids and have PTSD and dont fkn sleep well, have been a raging drunk, went from the best units to shit units that the leaders don’t have a fkn clue, NO COMBAT time think they have an idea, that’s just going to get more people KILLED. As alot of you guys know alot of those fks were taken care of on the invasion into IRAQ, or shortly after stray round or whatever, and after spending my last few yrs in the army getting bounced around from WWU (wounded warrior units) if you fkrs didnt know and relearning how to speak and write and deal with TBI , PTSD, Broken neck and back, shattered ankles and shoulders and a long list of other fkd up shit to get medically retired and maxed out by the army then the VA before you get out and be on SSD and CRC PAY and CRCDP PAY , before you left active duty, and you guys from other WATS that did 12 months or less SHIT sucks i know. But to the guys like me that volinterned (spl check) to go BACK TOUR after TOUR after TOUR after TOUR cause you felt DUTY and HONOR bound cause you knew how to get the FNG home and your other buddy and your soldiers under you back in one fkn piece home and not in a fkn ( green and gold body sack) i salute you. And you know where we stand we either talk on FB on the PURPLE HEART forams , for PURPLE HEART anglers to get guys up and going, SUICIDE prevention with vets 1 every 30 secs in the states we’re dying off like flys, HELPING families get to walter reed and to ft. sam houstan so they can see there SOLDIERS and help them RECOVER from the WAR. air fare donations in air milage ( spell check), and DONATING all of my spare time to helping other VETS whether it be a ride to the store a group ride from idaho up here by yellowstone down to SLC VA, HELPING other VETS get there benefits, or a LISTENING ear to a fellow vet that needs some one to talk to, BECAUSE if it hasn’t sank it yet, you really CAN’T explain to ma’ and pa’ or your wife or husband what the FUCK you went through, it just goes in one ear and out the other or they FREAK the fk out or get DISGUSTED about it and you can NEVER relate to other people besides another VET that did the same shit or close to it. I understand the need to protect the HONOR and VALOR in the military and the service WE did for OUR COUNTRY. I pay for it every god damn day when i wake up from a long night of night mares and memories. All though it might have only been 1-3 hrs of sleep every few days it feels like a fkn enternity. So Please protect our HONOR, VALOR and PRIDE of US VETS. and keep the basic trainies, FNG, and the Sorry Sacks of Shit that never were in or there ousted. But to bust on, oust a 100% disabled combat vet that did his time mulit tours got fkd up and is fkd up and totaly DISABLED and can’t even function and HELPS ALL OTHER VETS AND STILL FK WITH HIM.

    SHAME ON YOU!!!! STOLEN VALOR
    THERE IS NO VALOR OR HONOR IN THE ACTIONS YOUR DOING, AFTER GOING OUT WITH OTHER VETS FOR THE DAY ON A HUNTING TRIP TO INCLUDE RECENT VETS , VIETNAM VETS, AND A WW2 VET, TO COME HOME FROM THE TRIP AND GET A PHONE CALL FROM A OLD FRIENDTHAT I DID 2 TOURS WITH, SAYING THERE TALKING SHIT ON YOU ON STOLEN VALOR AGAIN, EITHER SUCK START A 240-B OR GET THE FK OVER IT

    • No Matt, come clean and stop with the lies! When are you going to accept responsibility and quit blaming everyone else? Above you blame Doc, Doc did not make you lie and claim honors you did not earn. So take responsibility and admit what you did, only then can you start to make amends.

    • No amount of time in the desert gives anyone the right to lie or exaggerate the experiences they’ve had while serving over there. Get off your very falsely fortified high horse and wake up to the reality that is your life. You’ve lied about that which you’ve experienced to make yourself out to be more than you are. There was no need for it.

    • Dude just admit where you are wrong. I hear all the angst man, but if you would just come clean and just stick to your real record. I truly believe people would be a lot more respectful toward you. Fuck man a lot of us had a real shitty time in combat and there’s no reason any of us should make up shit, to give some Hollywood account. Just apologize and set everything straight man, shit, we only have one community that’s really our own. Tell the truth and regain your Honor, please.

  10. He still has … Studied at U.S. Army Airbone,Air Assault, and Ranger Schools
    Past: US Army Airborne School, Fort Benning and US ARMY Infantry School
    …on his FB Page.

  11. Shame, I was in 3 Brigade 2 ID, During the 2 deployments he has listed. Although I am glad I have never met him, I can’t see why anyone of the vets listed here would want to embellish their records. I have seen and done things that can’t be put on paper or pinned to my chest. It better that way. I don’t see the logic behind claiming anything more than what you got. I am proud of what I did, and did what I did because it’s what needed to be done, not for an award. Most of us, I think feel the same way and even if we were passed over for something, it didn’t effect our integrity or moral compass. Shame on this guy for bringing discredit to himself, his unit and the Army.

  12. I just went(12/14/2013) to his facebook page. This guy is nuts and by reason not be able to own any weapons. He gives all of us vets a bad name. Let’s take him out back of the whoopen shed

  13. I read Matthew Beck’s response to this and what he’s saying is impossible he claims he got CDRP but you have to do 20 years to get CDRP otherwise you get CRSC. I was also with this douche in Iraq and we all though he was a liar back then. He always claimed he had a bad ass car but we only ever saw him drive his 1982 ford ranger.

  14. You know it doesn’t matter what we did while we served. It matters what you and I do afterward. What makes use heros is acting like one afterward. A hero just does what is necessary to take care of business and going beyond what others feel is adequate whatever that may be. I spend as much time as I’m able help the homeless, and helpless. I don’t talk about what I did as a member of the armed forces, and I saw fellow brothers die, I focus on those who need help. Heroes don’t brag.
