An ongoing thread got me to thinking about all of the wannabe military heroes running around. I while back I read a news article about the exploits of our local VFW post commander. He was reported to be a former Special Forces Command Sergeant Major who had been awarded multiple Purple Hearts, Silver Stars, Bronze Stars, etc. during VN. He even had a fake 214 for flash. After reading his interview, I couldn't believe these folks were buying the load this obvious phony was shoveling them. He was very shortly exposed as a fraud whose military career consisted of serving as a clerk.I also saw recently where a historian who won a Pulitzer this year has also been exposed for fabricating his tales as a 101st ABN platoon leader in VN. That's great, a historian who his own history.People pulling the fake "disturbed VN vet" crap when they screw up were also once a common thing. I had one pull this in court as his defense after committing a felony assault against me. He turned out to be a cook in the Navy who never even heard a shot fired in anger. He got 10 yrs.I'm no hero either, but it really twists me when people pull this kind of crap. This is the ultimate in disrespect.Has anyone else had any experience with this particular breed of worm? If you suspect someone is playing this game, they can easily be checked out for the cost of a stamp.
