    Guardian of Valor, a website that seeks to oust military impostors, listed a few reasons why they believe the pictured Marine is a fraud:

    • In the picture, the man is wearing a Silver Star, a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart; the medals are out of order.
    • A Marine never wears a cover (hat) indoors unless he's armed.
    • A Marine would never be at the airport in Dress Blue "A"
    • A Marine wouldn't be wearing his cover while seated indoors
    • A Marine wouldn't be wearing a shooting badge on the right side of his uniform (it goes on the left)

    Kudos to DeAngelo Williams, but man that fake Marine is a piece of hot garbage on a tin roof in the Texas sun.

    Lying about service to your country is one of the lowest scumbag moves you could do. The dude in the picture is obviously a fake and should be outed as a ****** bag.

    Judging by looking at his chevrons{ cant make out the middle symbol} it is a Master Gunnery Sergeant or above. If he is indeed faking it he had better be ready for the s-storm that's headed his way.

    My dad when he was still in high school decided to wear my uncle's navy uniform out on the town. He was caught and got in some pretty bad trouble.

    Think Dennis...adrenaline felt from the exhibitionism of being someone important and generally lacking empathy. Pretty sad in the real world though.

    Ha, that video is blocked at my work, so I cant see what it is. But from context I'm guessing Agent Jack Bauer cat episode?

    Ahhh, that would have fit too (your fandom is strong:D) good call. It was the more recent season where Dennis, Dee, and Mack are trying to con their way as a man who lost his wallet at the bar (Brian LaFell). Then it is mostly Dennis "playing" the rich business associates as LaFell, forcing Dee and Mack to give up on the smaller perks along the way all while promising "to get them off." Of course he is the only nutball of the crew who would get off on something like that. Yeah I probably watch a lil too much :D
