Stolen Valor update
Based upon the 2012 Supreme Court Decision, false Military Career Claims and awarding of Medals fall under the First Amendment's Doctrine of Free Speech. Therefore, unless the individual making the false claims uses those false claims or Medals to gain anything of material or monetary value, they cannot be prosecuted for Stolen Valor, but can be prosecuted for Fraudulent Schemes and Artifices or the Attempt to do so.
It takes the heart of a Warrior to find deception and take it down
It starts off simple enough. A casual mention of military service. And, oh by the way, a Purple Heart and a few other honors earned. How can you not trust a man who served his country so gallantly?
From there, confidence builds, one story weaves into even more glorious tales until, at some point, the fabrication is woven so tightly you begin to suspect...
How can one person achieve so much in such a short time? It's almost too good to be true.
For an amusing, yet disgusting, case of phony valor, check out this website. It's a great example of how to really make a wannabe public!
