Brent A HABETLER – Sir Lies-a-lot.

Stolen Valour Canada was advised by a number of parties that there was a potential issue with the medal that HABETLER was photographed wearing at the Royal Canadian Legion branch in Lloydminster, Sk.

Prior to investing any research effort into what has the potential to become a wild goose chase, we contact named individuals in order to provide them with an opportunity to sort out the reported situation. SVC does not act upon unsubstantiated intelligence or malicious tips, and we hoped that Sir Brent would take advantage of this offer to assist in protecting his reputation.

SVC asked him via his email using his verified email account on 17 October 2019 to contact us over a sensitive situation.

His one word response – NO!


Sir Knight appears to have some sort of royal access to CLAWR that accompanied his “knighthood”

Our brave knight produced the following documents as proof of service, not exactly convincing….


Mr HABETLER, do everyone a favour, put your military themed trinkets back into your tickle trunk and stop telling fairy tales of make believe army career! Your foolishness is nothing but an insult to our wounded and fallen.


Video of “Sir Brent” has now surfaced documenting his antics at the Alberta Legislature (16 Oct 2021). In his latest scam, our brave knight claims to be the “Queen’s Representative” and will negotiate on behalf of First Nations with his third cousin, Queen Elizabeth II…

He must have left his fancy gold rope, his bogus documentation and the fake Canadian Forces Decoration in his tickle trunk of military fairy tales.

Saskatchewan RCMP advise of 45-year-old male in Maidstone RCMP detachment area at high risk to breach conditions involving youth

In the interest of public safety, Saskatchewan RCMP advises the residents of the Maidstone RCMP detachment area and surrounding communities of an offender who has been charged with committing an indecent act in the presence of one or more persons, contrary to Sec. 173(1) of the Criminal Code. This charge is currently before the courts.

Sir Brent Adair Habetler was released from police custody on March 14, 2023, after appearing before a Justice of the Peace. A short time later, Lloydminster RCMP located Habetler outside a local daycare, which was a breach of his release conditions. Habetler was subsequently arrested and charged with breach of release conditions. Habetler was taken back before a Justice of the Peace. Full background information can be found in the Alberta RCMP media release below.


Habetler is known to breach his release conditions. As of March 14, 2023, Habetler has been ordered by court to obey, among others, the following conditions:

• No communication, directly or indirectly, with any person under 16 years of age, subject to the following exceptions:

This condition does not apply to incidental or superficial contact with persons under the age of 16 who are:

Customers at his workplace; or
Are employed at other places of business as long as such contact is necessary to conduct transactions as a customer.

• Shall not attend any public swimming area, school and school yard, daycare, playground, youth shelter or public library.

Habetler is described as a 45-year-old male, 6’1″ tall weighing approximately 215 lbs, with blue eyes and brown hair.

To report an incident involving Habetler being in violation of his conditions, call your local RCMP detachments. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (1-800-222-8477).

Saskatchewan RCMP say a 45-year-old man in the Maidstone area is “at high risk to breach conditions involving youth.”

Sir Brent Adair Habetler is charged with committing an indecent act in the presence of one or more persons, RCMP said in a news release.

Habetler was released from police custody after appearing before a justice of the peace on Tuesday. Soon after, Lloydminster RCMP found him outside a daycare — in breach of his release conditions, according to police.

He was arrested and charged for beaching his release conditions, and again appeared before a justice of the peace.

According to RCMP, Habetler is forbidden from going to public swimming areas, schools and school yards, daycares, playgrounds, youth shelters or public libraries.

He can not communicate with anyone under the age of 16 except in the case of “incidental or superficial contact ” with customers at his workplace or employees at businesses where contact is necessary to conduct transactions.

While RCMP want the public to take “suitable preventive measures,” police emphasized that no one should “embark upon any form of vigilantism or other unreasonable conduct” directed at Habetler.

Court orders former Prince George man not to be where there are youth. 

Lisa Joy 

Brent Habetler, who legally changed his name to Sir Brent Adair Habetler, was arrested in March and charged with committing an indecent act in a public place.

A Saskatchewan man entered into a 12-month peace bond on Wednesday not to be at any swimming pool, daycare, day school, or youth centre.

Brent Habetler, who legally changed his name to Sir Brent Adair Habetler, was arrested in March and charged with committing an indecent act in a public place, and willfully obstructing, interrupting or interfering with the lawful use, enjoyment or operation of property, the community swimming pool, thereby committing mischief. Those charges were withdrawn in Lloydminster, Alta., court on Nov. 15.

In March, Saskatchewan RCMP said that in the interest of public safety, they were advising the residents of the Maidstone RCMP  detachment area and surrounding communities of an offender who had been charged with committing an indecent act and the RCMP said that he was at high risk to reoffend.

Back in 2000, Habetler was arrested in Prince George for two counts of indecent exposure, one at a drivethru restaurant  and the other at the Elksentre.

Police at the time said they had witnesses who could prove Habetler, who was then 23-years-old, was responsible for the acts. However, one charge was later dropped and Habetler was acquitted of the other.

So, you’re a Sniper, eh?

From a friend of SVC

“This came up as a memory this morning. It still holds true as they keep coming out of the wood work.

I copied and pasted instead of sharing as I had to do some editing.

With American Sniper coming to theatres there will be an influx of fake snipers. I’m going to go into my Don Shipley impersonation. If he can do it for Navy SEALS I can do it for Canadian Snipers and at 53 I still have enough hair to pull it off and I sport a decent beard like Don too.

After my buddy XXXXX barked off that crazy long distance shot sending some Taliban flunky to paradise we started to see an influx of “Snipers”.  These guys would pop up at pubs. Legions and Veteran organizations. I have seen a ton of guys walking around wearing a sniper tab on a motorcycle vest, few legit, most not.

Some basic math here.  When I squeaked by passing my course by the short hairs of my ass and received the qualification, with the addition of the 8 from 9201, that brought the total of qualified Snipers in the CF up to 44. That is all.

44 snipers spread across three Regiments.  During this time the shit show in the Balkans was going on and the value of Snipers was recognized so the Army increased the number of courses it was running to accommodate the need.

Attrition rates on courses vary, most graduate 50% or LESS of the Candidates and there was one course that graduated only one. Another course was over half way through the time allotted  because everyone failed.

At one veteran motorcycle Poker run there was a chance encounter where there were three of us in one location. That is rare. On Remembrance Day I happened to run into another young man who held the qualification.  He was legit.

After we did the sniff test and asked each other a barrage of bizarre random questions that only a qualified Sniper would know the answers to, we started to shoot the shit. By his best guess there are less than 200 qualified Snipers in the Canadian Army at this time. The number is neither accurate or verified but is believable.

Point is that there are not very many of us out there and chances of meeting a qualified Sniper are pretty damn slim. The fact is you are more likely to meet a CF 18 pilot than a sniper.

Without giving too much away basic alarm bells are.

1-If they aren’t or weren’t Regular Force they aren’t a Sniper.  The course is only open to the Regular Army. If a Reservist holds the qualification he was Regular Army and got it then.

2-If they are not Infantry they are not eligible for the course. You must also be Basic Reconnaissance Patrolman qualified as a prerequisite. The Sniper course is not open to other trades.

3-There were guys employed in Sniper type roles with the C3-A1 rifle that did not hold the qualification.  They are SHARPSHOOTERS, not Snipers.  To be a Sniper you must pass the course and gain the qualification.

4- If they are currently employed as a Sniper they aren’t telling a total stranger in a bar that they are a Sniper. Once guys are released or retire they will probably tell people they know. I have been out of the game so long no one gives a rat’s ass that I was a Sniper. It is a hard course and a difficult accomplishment and those who get it are proud of the fact.

If anyone bumps into one of these clowns send them to me and I will happily prove or disprove them.

With social media in our close knit community it takes less than 30 minutes to verify or disprove a claim.”


And, then there’s this unrepentant sack-o-crap. Jack Proulx is our favourite kind of fake sniper / embellisher. Petulant, resentful, accusatory and unapologetic…

He’s no “Lông Trắng / White Feather” but, he’ll tell ya that he was even more deadly than Gunny Hathcock… #amateurhour

John Edward JOHNSTON – Door knocker? Mail clerk? Con man? 2 outta 3 ain’t bad…

We are asked to have a look at Mr John Edward JOHNSTON’s very public, high speed, low drag claims by some brothers from another mother who shared the video link below.

However, the official records tell a different story.

Mr JOHNSTON was a US Marine Corps Private First Class (E2), Aircraft Recovery Specialist (1994-98) and a US Army / National Guard Specialist (E-4) Unit Supply Specialist (2010-2011). He served for a total of 4 years and 9 months in the US military, and even using new math, that doesn’t add up to the near 20 years of service he claims.

The attached US DD214s, courtesy of our US Partners, indicate that JOHNSTON was never a Staff Sergeant of Marines nor was he a Scout-Sniper with seven combat deployments!

But, he has all the medals & dress blues…

Baby Blue Marine…

Johnston must also be a time traveller as he’s rockin’ the Medal for Humane Action which recognizes 120 days of service during the Berlin Airlift 1948-49… There are many other inconsistencies with his group of medals when his official documents are reviewed. There’s no explanation for the UK General Service Medal (Northern Ireland) along with the Gulf War (90-91) group…

His medal group indicates he was Wounded In Action twice while serving as a member of the US Army, the records do not support that claim!

Of course, no “Staff Sergeant/Scout-Sniper” would ever deploy to an operational theatre without his mail clerk credentials!

The truth is out there…

James Wellheiser – “Dances with shit nickels”

Wellheiser was confronted about his medallic fakery on 23rd of January 2017 by a small group of legitimate veterans/war fighters. He quietly surrendered the self awarded US/RVN medals and insignia for disposal by an appropriate authority…
