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.

Sgt Otter: The Combat Infantryman's Badge (CIB) is also strictly awarded to soldiers who are either Infantry or Special Forces who have been in direct combat with the enemy. Medics get Combat Medical Badges (CMB), and everybody else gets a Combat Action Badge (CAB). As a Supply specialist, he would have earned a CAB, if he had actually gotten into a firefight with the enemy (not just deployed to Afghanistan or Iraq and stayed on the base).

There's no "I was assigned to an infantry battalion, so they gave me a CIB" rule, either.

You collect those badges and turn them in for better gear so you can face the high level raid bosses right?
What are we talking about here?

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
