The only thing that needs to be asked about John Giduck is this:  What has he said about his background that is not a lie?  I am beginning to think that only his academic credentials and 58 days in the Army are true.  Oh yeah…we had to find out the 58 days in the Army from another source.  Thankfully, this time, the lie being told shows up multiple times in John Giduck’s own bios so he can’t disclaim what others have said.

Is this what POW Network listed military poser John Giduck means by “disruptive thinking”?

John Giduck has made lots of claims to be a member of the Russian Special Forces Brotherhood of the Red Beret Association. Dozens of such claims actually over the course of years. Here is the screen capture from John Giduck’s own LinkedIn Page taken as of this blog post

Rather than list them all (there are a lot), I will direct you to the below Google search link…as of this blog post, there are 102 results for claims that John Giduck is a member of the Russian Special Forces Brotherhood of the Red Beret addition to the above LinkedIn post (note the use of the word “I”) these include John Giduck’s About page for his personal blog.”Russian+Special+Forces+Brotherhood+of+the+Red+Beret+Association”&oq=”Russian+Special+Forces+Brotherhood+of+the+Red+Beret+Association”&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&gs_l=serp.3…0l0l1l128l0l0l0l0l0l0l226l226l2-1l1l0.frgbld.&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=47c8b1b5d82f8a93&biw=1024&bih=629

I’ll bet you already know what is coming next if you are a longtime reader of this blog….

Someone has contacted the admin for the Russian Special Forces Brotherhood of the Red Beret Association.  I won’t even opine…you can just read what the Association Admin  states on the record…

Thank you for the e-mail.
We have confirmed the information on John Giduck – he has visited us (about 5 years ago)… Since then, we have not been in touch with him. He is not and has never been a member of the Association. Besides, any member of the Association who does not keep in touch with the Association without valid excuse for more than half a year, is automatically excluded. Therefore, he has no right to represent the Association and “Vityaz” in the territory of the U.S.A.

“He is also a member of the Russian Special Forces Brotherhood of the Red Beret Association ” – this phrase is a lie.


Here is the original response in Russian:

Спасибо вам за письмо.
Мы уточнили информацию по John Giduck – он был у нас в гостях (около 5 лет назад)… С тех пор, контакта с ним не поддерживаем. Членом Ассоциации не являлся и не является. Кроме того, любой участник Ассоциации, не поддерживающий контакт с Ассоциацией, без уважительных причин более полугода, автоматически исключается. Поэтому представлять Ассоциацию и СН “Витязь” на территории США он права не имеет.

“He is also a member of the Russian Special Forces Brotherhood of the Red Beret Association” – эта фраза – ложь.

С уважением,

It sure did sound like a nice thing, John Giduck!  So not only did John Giduck falsely claim to be a member of US Army Special Forces.. he clearly has done so with his Russian Spetznaz brothers too!

Again, I’ll ask…why is Archangel Group co-founder and retired Special Forces SGM John “Andy” Anderson clearly on the wrong side of this issue? John Giduck is a poser, liar, and military faker…in multiple countries.  If anyone has long known the truth about John Giduck’s false credentials, it’s SGM Anderson. It also makes me wonder why the Special Operations Association and Special Forces Association continue to back this poser (John Giduck) over a combat decorated lifetime member of both associations….

Must be those 30 silver pieces, eh?
