    This is probably the reason rainbow broke up, and is the reason that I as an airsofter can no longer support warfighter airsoft. I like their purpose, but I refuse to support a company that condones stolen valor, especially amongst their head staff.

    Trench. He was in the military, and did serve overseas, however when he came back he started claiming that he was a ranger, and that he was certified as a sniper, and all that kind of thing. TWIA did some digging and it isn't true. Warfighter posted about it on their Facebook, and when it was stated that he should not be head of staff for an organization to help veterans, warfighter told the person that they are an "idiot" and a "troll".

    wow... thats some serious stuff... Im actually embarrased that someone from that airsoft community who is under the limelight like Ranger is with Rainbow would try to get away with that.
    I have nothing more to say... I will be listening on my break...

    Wait, was it Ranger or Trench. Warfighter's page listed it as Todd who is Ranger... Just trying to clarify

    Ranger, my apologies. I was under the impression that there was a name change.

    Rainbow or warfighter? I really dont care about rainbow, but warfighter was serving a good purpose, it's a shame that it was run by someone like that.

    I listened to the whole thing, it's pretty sad to be honest.

    it is because they were youtube sensations with the Jugger-what? video... look at all the youtube sensations that have been. They all go away after enough time because something new will come up and take their place or they screw up.

    Just wanted to show this. I got this message today from Todd, Ranger. while I appreciate that he did send that to me, it doesnt excuse him and i cannot forgive him. I have friends who put their lives on the line every day and have lost 2 on the same line that his actions have absolutely soiled. This is a start and he has supposedly made apologies publicly, though I cant find them. He will not stop me from donating and helping further a great cause with personal meaning to me.
    I hope anyone who is interested in helping will look at this the same way I am. Though he is involved, this is not his money. the money goes to the project. You cant fault the whole for a part.

    Dunno. Heck, even the account that claims to be rainbow airsoft on this forum is lying.
    Pic related.

    I don't have a problem with what the project does, I admire it honestly. However, I take huge issue with the fact that they are basically condoning Stolen Valor.
