I say, ship his fat *ss right to the tip of the spear, at the edge of the empire, and let him stand a post, or start drivin in convoys. Wearin his little 'mess dress' outfit he bought on ebay.

Either that, or be hit with cinderblocks until my arms get tired. I don't care which.

How was it that he was at a Marine Corps League birthday ball to begin with? It takes a copy of a DD-214 to join?
A Navy Cross, two Silver Stars and four Bronze Stars? He may all well have put a flashing red light on his head. What a dumb a$$!

"Trust...but verify". I've met plenty of phonies claiming everything from PTSD to all sorts of other crap. As soon as some ya-hoo walks in wearin a "Chesty Puller starter kit", I take note, and attempt to check on anything I see.

It's a sad, but true, state of affairs these days, but doing it saves you alot of issues, embarrassment, and other things down the road.

Anyone wearing a Navy Cross, Air Force Cross, Distinguished Service Cross, can be EASILY verified these days on the internet with a minimum of searching. So can those claiming MOH, POW, etc. Even, believe it or not, the CAR can be checked, if it's a recent award. You just have to know where and how to look.

You know I may be a Super-POG with only two medals. But this story makes me proud of those two medals.

Semper Fi,
