Firstly, I wasn't sure what forum to post this in, but politics seemed to be the closest thing. I don't think that this post will start a debate, but rather a discussion, even though this is a debate forum. I have been watching some YouTube videos (finally got internet after a few months!) of people confronting people for "stolen valor". I decided to look up what actually constitutes stolen valor, and discovered that it wasn't as all encompassing as I thought. Stolen valor only applies to certain things, as listed in the link below. It actually isn't technically illegal to wear a uniform (at least under the stolen valor act, it possibly is under another law) or to wear certain medals. Only the higher medals are protected, as well as combat action badges and the like. So, according to the stolen valor act, as long as someone isn't wearing certain things, it's ok to pretend to be a member of the military. Here's the summary of the act: https://www.congress.gov/bill/113th-congress/house-bill/258 Any thoughts?
