“The Stolen Valor Act of 2013 (Pub.L. 113–12; H.R. 258) is a United States federal law that was passed by the 113th United States Congress. The law amends the federal criminal code to make it a crime for a person to fraudulently claim having received any of a series of particular military decorations and awards with the intention of obtaining money, property, or other tangible benefit from convincing someone that he or she rightfully did receive that award.” – Public Knowledge
Stolen Valor is when a civilian wears and pretends to be military personnel for admiration, respect and free stuff. One’s motivation for falsely putting on the military uniform is it makes people easier to con and scam.
Wearing a military uniform is a good way to start your panhandling business as we naturally honor and respect our service men and women and understand the struggles and sacrifices they have made for us.
However the people who have decide to disrespect military culture have added to youtube culture, creating funny and hillarious STOLEN VALOR VIDEOS you can check out HERE.
