According to Stars and Stripes, the revised Stolen Valor text wasn’t included in the 2013 NDAA:
Well since we know Doug is watching, how about this Doug, give us a time you will be here and let's finish this whole thing. The only stipulation is this: 1. The whole Shawn Hoffman thing is done, drop it, if the guy lied there's no way of really proving it, thanks to you backing him in a corner. 2. Stolen Valor has nothing to do with this page, we leave this page open so people you have blocked and accused of being trolls can post replys to your lies. 3. refrain from name calling, keep it on the adult level, explain your side, we give you ours, let's work on solving the problem, and let the world get on with its self, agreed??~Smitty

This page has been started to expose the stalking and harassment of REAL VETERANS and the dishonesty of those who use groups that expose Stolen Valor in a dishonest manner to control, harass, and intimidate anyone who discovers wrongdoing of theirs.
This page used to be called "Army Ranger Outed" and was used to show proof of the stolen valor of a fake army ranger who lied about his service. Now we learned that Stolen Valor Actually was behind this fake using their existence in the stolen valor community to falsely VERIFY this fake as "legit"...

Stolen Valor Another eye opening image, A fifteen year old German soldier, Hans-Georg Henke, cries after being captured by the US 9th Army in Rechtenbach, Germany, on April 3, 1945. He was a member of the Luftwaffe anti-air squad (Flakhelfer) who burst into tears as his world crumbled around him. His father died 1938 and his mother in 1944. He joined the Luftwaffe to support himself.

ATTENTION ON DECK - From the ADMIN (DC): Yes, today is a celebration of the Army National Guard who we were told to have respect for as they are "today's minutemen". While I'm guessing that reference is to their sex life more than the historical warriors of past, we personally find it disgusting that this asshurt group of "warriors" would run a group of "stolen valor" and go around attacking Veterans trying to make a case out of everyone they chase down, while in fact posting lies about their own service as they do so. You just can't run a stolen valor group and falsely verify some fake army ranger so your buddy can use the fake to promote his ASMDSS-owned Battles in Distress page so they he can run up his number of likes which for them are prospective customers to sell their shirts to and take donations from.

Wow! From Stolen Valor "Check out this photo courtesy of Greg Mathieson, who has been chronicling the SEAL's for the past six years. This is called "Drown Proofing" At the bottom of a swimming pool a group of men voluntarily sink with their hands bound behind their backs after instructed to reach their face masks on the floor using only their teeth. There appears little struggle as the men calmly work to complete their task before the next one is issued, most likely making their challenge even harder, but all in a day's training for the SEAL's."

Here are some pointers to assist you in Stolen Valor: 1. When challenged ALWAYS claim what you did was CLASSIFIED! 2. Seek people that will believe you and know little about the military to build a foundation of support 3. Politicians make your best friends. They will lie for you and will never go against the same party. 4. Even if someone produces your service records, say that what you got has been redacted as what I really did is classified 5. Fake or exaggerate PTSD or an injury in combat. You'll get instant fame, sympathy and empathy. Hardly anyone will challenge you. 6. If you really want credibility with your lie, tell you wife, kids, neighbors and friends the lie. 7. The early you start lying the better, the longer the lie the more credible is becomes. 8. Don't get quoted in the newspaper. If you do apply rule and Join an American Legion. Find all the older Vets lie your of to them and when your in trouble call on them to support you. 10. There are many benefits to Stolen Valor without going to ja ...
Apparently, the picture I posted of what I thought was a possible faker was actually genuine. There is a man out there that has basically every decoration short of the Medal of Honor. I stand corrected and amazed. Thanks to Courtney for pointing out the Stolen Valor verification!
So the picture that we just shared of the man with every tab ever, might be legit. Anthony from Stolen Valor is checking into it. If he's legit, he is most likely Chuck Norris's father.

Maybe now Scotty will come troll this page some more with the proof in his face and tell us how he didn't lie to Stolen Valor, that he wasn't kicked out of Stolen Valor, that he didn't just lie about me calling a known Navy SEAL a "fake", that he didn't like about knowing me or that I harassed two girls which had openly admits, that he didn't create a page to harass my Marine Corps page, that he didn't on many occasions make suicidal references to veterans, that he didn't join in on harassment with a known poser, Shawn Hoffman on other pages to harass a Marine...and a laundry list of other harassment and stalking of myself and other veterans. If you go to my page you'll see he stalked commenting there and trolled it with the very people you see commenting elsewhere, his trolls. You can also see him stalk the outing of Shawn Hoffman on Stolen Valor and attempt to divert their investigation from it. He's nothing more than a troll with mental issues...just look at him.

The next thing we are going to do is follow up on the cases that Scott Hughes alleges are him outing "posers" and to see if we can actually contact one of them to see if all along Mr. Hughes actually had ever outed anyone for anything. Chances are, I wouldn't be shocked if he faked his cases to try to get some attention drawn to his "poser hunting" to impress Stolen Valor who kicked him out of Stolen Valor that he "can do it". He's obviously a proven liar on here.
There appear to be some people who didn't like our post about 50 cent wearing Marine Corps Dress Blues - obviously they don't realize that it is wrong. Pointing us to a movie where 50 cent plays a character in the Nat'l Guard. There is a difference. This is not the first time he has done this. Is it not still 'Stolen Valor' to wear something that our men and women have died for? Is it not still morally and ethically wrong? What the *** is up with the world when people want to jump on board to defend 50 cent but we can't even get that many people to share a picture of an actual HERO?

Christopher Gaynor on Stolen Valor and did the U.S. Lose the Vietnam War? Date: 11/5/2012 1:36:16 P.M. Eastern Standard Time From: cbgaynor2 Reply To: BernWei1 I know better than to jump in here, but here goes anyway. I am not a historian, so I apologise for any errors in the following. The 'American War' was 'lost' at the strategic level. US troops and our coalition allies never lost a battle at the tactical level. We were good, *** good! My own unit, the 25th Inf Div. kicked *** all over III Corps. By early 1968 we were having success controlling bigger and bigger areas of the South. The Pacification programs in the Delta were starting to pay off. Then the other shoe dropped. Tet 1968. I was right in the middle of the fight. Gen. Giap miscalculated hugely by launching his offensive when he did. By the end of Tet 1 his forces were decimated, most of his hardware destroyed and his plan in shambles. THAT was the perfect opportunity to take the North, destroy the *** Chi Minh Trail and force the Comm ...

A Wolf That Comes as a Wolf by National Director, Dee on Monday Beware the Democrats' Deceptive Practices and Voter Intimidation Prevention Act of 2011 (S. 1994). If you like the tendentious nit-picking of Politifact, you'll love S. 1994 because it will empower a whole new set of self-appointed fact checkers. But, if you are concerned about politically motivated mischief, you'll see it as a wolf in wolf's clothing, like Senator Grassley (R-IA) does. The First Amendment protects some false speech, as the Supreme Court recently held in finding the Stolen Valor Act unconstitutional. It doesn't protect all false speech, though, and Senate Democrats want to subject more false speech to criminal prosecution. S. 1994, "Prevention of Deceptive Practices and Voter Intimidation in Federal Elections," would make it a federal crime to make knowingly false statements about the time or place of an election, the qualifications of voters, or claims of endorsement within 90 days of a federal election. In order to be a cri ...
I am bothered when people say, "our men and women who are fighting for our country" There is not a single woman in the entire United States military in a combat unit. They say there have been women casulties... it is true. of the 3000 casulties 2% were women. I find it odd that you would equate 2% with 98%. It is like France after WWII saying yay we won... no you weren't the ones fighting and bleeding. If we thank the 0% who are "fighting" for the country and the 2% who died (god bless them) then we should also thank the 2% of bolivian americans who have died in the fight. I do not intend to sound unpatriotic, but I do not believe that people should be given credit for something they are not doing. It is like stolen valor.

Sorry abt the language in the tag line, but even I recognized that the ribbons were improperly placed. Stolen Valor means falsely claiming you served where you didn't or did what you didn't. It's called 'lying', and I wish they would put these guys away. Two sons in the service; honor is issue

I have copied this phrase from "Stolen Valor" because it is so eloquently said. "I sometimes wonder why people feel the need to embellish their service records. If you served in whatever capacity be proud of it, you are the 1%! No need to tell lies to look like you are more, it is to easy now for someone to verify your service and your records. All records are available to the public, nothing in a Military service record is classified. Yes, some missions may be classified, but service records are not."

Much to be Accomplished in “Lame Duck” Session With Congress adjourning and clearing town to continue re-election efforts in their states and districts, they left behind a large logjam of work that they have failed to accomplish. Many of the issues our readers are very familiar with. They include the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA); “Doc Fix” to do something about the January 1 scheduled 27% cut in payments to doctors for Medicare and TRICARE for Life reimbursements; and maybe the most important - Sequestration. Yesterday Defense Secretary Panetta expressed his frustration on the Sequestration problem at a briefing with reporters when he said he would "take whatever the *** deal they can make right now to deal with sequestration." Recent reports suggest there is growing support for a temporary several month postponement of Sequestration to let the new Congress work out details or completely eliminate it next year. NAUS will also press Congress to complete passage of a new Stolen Valor ...

Obama claims he ended the war in Iraq. Do we need to remind him that he opposed the "Surge" that George Bush instituted that won the war for us? If we had done what Obama wanted we would have lost that war, or it would still be going on. And Obama wants to take the credit for ending the war? That's intellectually dishonest, and an affront to rational people everywhere. That's akin to the "Stolen Valor" liars who take credit for things they don't deserve.
Something I dont quite get; Supreme Court repeals Stolen Valor Act,faster than a flash of lightining, saying it goes against 1st Amendment rights. Umm,no. Hence, Stolen Valor. Then, they spend what seems like eons debating *** *** rights to marry. Seriously? This is a no brainer. Pretty sure nothing bad will happen,except 2 people will be happy together.
Hopefully now the revised Stolen Valor Act will meet the requirements needed to become a good law.. Before the House of Representatives at this time... Mebbe we can get Congress to earn a little of their over 150K annual pay and pass this baby.

Seen a page a friend of mine Alexander 'Clay' McHenry like called stolen valor.

Have some fun with phoney vets. I was in only a short while, I did nothing special, and didn't leave CONUS during my entire brief military career. These jackasses would be funny if it weren't that they steal the spot light from those that put their lives on the line for the rest of us. At least I can show my DD214 and PROVE an Honorable Discharge. Too funny, walk through some of these, they are really a bunch of losers.
Valor lost So much is made now days of stolen valor. What of valor lost. I recently wrote the department of defense, secretary of the army concerning medals and awards not issued due to criminal burning of paper work for issuance of medals and awards. The department of the army, answered with this reply. My brothers of air cavalry troop, should write st.Louis Missouri personal records for issuance. The department of the army knowing full well. Only lost medals and awards can be reissued. If there are no orders of issuance from air cavalry. These awards can not be issued. The army is skirting a criminal investigation into this matter. I need everyones help to bring valor to those who deserve it. Many of my fellow troopers and their families deserve to receive the proper recononition accorded their service. Only a state senator can make the army investigate these in justices. Please help me and my brothers receive their lost valor. Please repost this.
Just because the Stolen Valor Act was declared unconstitutional doesn't mean we can't check to see if someone's faking

I Had the dopest Dream!!! "Stolen Valor" Hit the iTunes Top Selling Singles Chart!!! Real talk that was the dream!
So, with a little research (about 2 minutes using Google) I have found that if you impersonate an officer of the law you could be charged with a misdemeanor or up to a felony. While the Stolen Valor Act was in effect (signed into law in 2005 by former President George W. Bush but repealed by the Supreme Court on July 28, 2012 because they said it was unconstitutional under "Freedom of Speech") the maximum time in prison for a "Federal Misdemeanor" is one year and that was only if you were wearing the Medal of Honor (our country's highest award). I am in no way belittling our police force, but does that make any sense to anyone?
