Worst case of "stolen valor" I ever experienced personally...my natural father using his dead brother's service in Vietnam to play in various golf things for veterans. (I still don't understand it...but I'm not a golfer.)

So I had my brother-in-law call him, pretending to be with the VA, and apologizing profusely for the horrible, horrible mistake they'd obviously made back in 1968, that my uncle had apparently not been killed in Vietnam, and they know this because he's been in all these golf tournaments...and could they have the insurance money back? With interest? This was 1996...that's a lot of interest...

Apparently my father almost had a coronary. I'm still mad that my brother-in-law didn't tape the call.

/why yes, I do have daddy issues.

At least he has the grooming standards down. If your gonna' go full retard you might as well throw some foreign medals and badges while you're at it.

Just the pathetic nature of it makes me so sad.

As a CSB, I was on a message board that caught a fake that had MULTIPLE care packages sent to him, and one girl on the board (who was crazy, but also hot) hooked up with him.

The facepalm moment came when they did an IP check on him and realized that when he said he was posting from the Sandbox, he was actually in Michigan.

Of course, the mods of the board made it look like it was some big detective novel, but when you put the things together - the "care packages" were going to "his dad" in Michigan to be delivered... it's ridiculous.

Ironically, the board also had a solider who was apparently KIA. Where it gets weird is that his screen name on the board was... FlyNavy.

HotIgneous Intruder:

Oh YES, you can READ.

So you admit that you knew you weren't being honest about the case?

Either that, or admit that you can't read...

To The Escape Zeppelin!: When I worked in a congressional office we had a woman call and request her recently deceased husbands army medals. Long story short, I had to tell a widow her husband was a liar with no military record. Best day ever

You must have a shiatty life.
