As a veteran of the American Civil War, I am outraged by this!

No one is stealing anyones valor by bullshitting about their military service. It is a bad thing to do, but come on, it happens. I have even seen real special forces heros stretch the truth about stuff that happened earlier that day.

I'm sure in a few years we will hear from all the guys who sat behind the wire in AFG and IRQ. About their big shootout with Osama.  Smiley

I just want to know who would be dumb enough to pretend to have fought in Iraq or Afghanistan.

Who cares? Are you really going to hire someone based on what they said they did in a war?Plus it's so easily verifiable. It's like making it illegal to say you went to a college you didn't.

+1 By the same logic someone with a fake diploma is "stealing" from everyone with a real one.

Now granted I've been away from the country and haven't been following the news from back home, but this struck me as an unnecessary law.

If you claim to be a veteran so that people will think you're a hero, what more suitable punishment if you're caught could there be than the punishment you'll get without government intervention?  What could be more fitting than the punishment of having those same people think you're a pathetic fool?
