    Not to minimize the degree of patheticness of Capt. Jackass, but the "Stolen Valor Act" only deals with decorations, not simply claiming that you served in the military.

    Furthermore, (this is my speculation, I may be wrong) I would imagine that it's intended purpose would be to prevent such claims made to commit some other fraud, such as receiving some sort of benefit that only a medal holder would qualify for. I doubt it is to throw Capt. Jackass in the slammer for telling a BS story over a couple beers (although that distinction is not in the language.)

    Again, it is no less despicable, just not a federal offense.

    I wouldn't have worried about it. Just like you could tell he was full of crap, others can to. In my experience, the more you call BS, the greater their military prowess becomes, and the more frustrated you will become. I agree with the others, let it go.

    When the dust settles look at Capt Jackass and in your best I'm sorry that sucked voice...tell him that if he ever lies about his service again that he can and will be brought up on FEDERAL CHARGES! There are laws to prevent people from claiming service that they did not endour and this guy is no exception.

    Letting it go only eggs it on. Confronting someone although painful for those around lets the offender know that he has entered the no spn zone and that he is on thin ice.

    From here forward I would call capt jackass "specops" or "ghost" or some other special operations video game callsign I could think of.

    I have no love in my heart for those that take away from those that are true professionals.

    It makes all of us that served look like morons in the eyes of those that have never served.

    I've run into my share of bogus "War Veterans". I use a couple of lines from the movie "Falling Down". In the movie Michael Douglas is hit up in the park by some bum claiming that he's a "Vet". Michael Douglas then says to him "Oh, so you're an animal doctor?" The bum then says "no, a veteran, I was in 'Nam man". Then Michael Douglas says "What were you, a little drummer boy, you must have by 10 years old." (replace the "10" with the appropriate number).

    The lines have worked like a charm. In recent years I've been running into more "Desert Storm" bogus vets'. It's sad, but I've been having to "out" these sorry bastards more and more.
