Stolen Valor

By: Nick0311/8531

A recent news story regarding a Fake Army Nurse( Vietnam and Iraq Wars) that stole a seat on an Honor Flight to Washington D.C. gave some one the idea to start a Dishonor Flight but there are certain criteria :
1) Must possess a forged or blurred ,in the proper spaces, DD-214 or claim that your records were destroyed in the 1973 fire at the NPRC. Note: a certified copy will not be accepted .
2)Must wear a leather vest with as many pins and,or patches that you can fit.
3)If you are wearing a ribbon stack or any medals they must be arranged out of order and any combat medals can not be DOD engraved.
4) Must have the proper Combat Veterans hat with the war of choice,even if you were to young or old at the time of conflict.
5) Must be able to tell at least one war story that can not be verified or that you were the lone survivor. Better if you were captured and escaped
6) If you require a service animal you must have the proper fake papers to be seated in first class
You can contact Juan A Bee at the dishonor flight HQ.

    One way to tell a stolen valor a$$hole is they will talk continuously about all the battles they were in and how many men they killed. Most who actually served in combat don’t want to relive this experience telling their war stories. I don’t. I lived it and it resurfaces to the front of my brain enough without forcing it to come out again. My$0.02 worth. Semper Fi Brothers.

    Harry……Weren’t you in the Engineers at Dong Ha in 1967? We left Camp Evans around February or March 1967 and moved to Dong Ha. I was in A Co 3rd Shore Party over on the south side of the air strip next to the big ammo dump. Luckily I rotated back back to the USA before the NVA hit the dump with artillery. I heard from a buddy of mine that was still there when the ammo dump was blown. The way he talked, ordinance was blown up and some came down and demolished the entire Shore Party area. Engineers came over in trucks and got them out. He also said that they had spent many, many hours in bunkers due to the falling ordinance. Bob 1381

    Years ago a” Veteran” came to our Legion to join his DD-14 showed Vietnam Service Medal and Campaign Medal but no overseas service.All of his time was accounted for but no sea duty or overseas duty . A closer look revealed that another type writer was used to forge it.What a dumb ass
