Fake Marines

I have met a lot of individuals pretending to be Marines. It is usually very obvious - they have terrible angst over all the combat stress they have encountered. But unless they are pretty slick they get tripped up on the units they served in, the years, etc.


Interesting article about a Fake.

The Book, Stolen Valor: How the Vietnam Generation Was Robbed of its Heroes and its History also covers fake military claims in more depth.

The Stolen Valor Act makes it a federal misdemeanor to falsely represent oneself as having received any U.S. military decoration or medal.
