House Passed New Stolen Valor Act
« on: September 16, 2012, 11:52:30 AM »
From Blackfive.net:

The House has passed the new Stolen Valor Act.

    Those who lie about military service or make false claims about receiving military medals with the intent of benefiting from those claims would be committing a crime under legislation passed by the House Wednesday.

I.e. those who perpetrate fraud are prosecutable.  However:

    Following the lines of the [Supreme] court ruling, it exempts from punishment those who simply wear military medals or decorations that do not belong to them.

You're still left with only ridicule and shame in that regard.  The guys at Ranger Up help with that task.

(more to come re status with Senate--from famous)
