    Under the Stolen Valor Act of 2013, it is illegal for an individual to fraudulently portray him or herself as a recipient of any of several specified military decorations or medals with the intent to obtain money, property or other ‘tangible benefit.’

    It was unknown if the uniformed man received any special treatment from any store at the mall, but on Monday, U.S. Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick (R-Bucks) asked the U.S. Attorney in Philadelphia to determine if there was evidence of a federal crime against 'Yetman'

    Berk has no doubts that the man he confronted was not a ranger.

    'He's impersonating in the uniform people died for,' Berk added. 'He was wearing awards that I earned and he didn't.'

    same thing happened here with someone claiming to be a vet on Remembrance Day. He was actually interviewed on tv that day and several vets called the tv station to tell them that he was clearly a fraud. He's since been charged with a number of crimes. No idea why anyone would do such a thing. Absolutely pathetic.

    How does doing that even come into your conscience? It would just never cross my mind to try something like that.

    Totally agree. He obviously researched a back story as well in the hopes of fooling some people. It's not like he just borrowed it from his brothers' closet on a whim.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Was he doing it to get the damn veterans discount, the recognition and adulation, all of the above?

    Sorry, couldn't watch the whole thing it pissed me off so much.
