Report: Court rules wearing unearned medals a crime - Stripes

Report: Court rules wearing unearned medals a crime - Stripes: Lying about receiving a military medal is protected speech, but there’s no right to wear a combat decoration that hasn’t been earned, a federal appeals court said Wednesday.

The difference, said a divided panel of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, is that lying is speech, but wearing a medal is conduct, according to a report in the San Francisco Chrnonicle.

Russell Richardson; stolen smarts : This ain't Hell, but you can see it from here

Russell Richardson; stolen smarts : This ain't Hell, but you can see it from here: Russell Richardson, who earned a master’s degree from Ohio State University in 1984, says he never sought to misrepresent his credentials. Yet from 2003 to as recently as September, Richardson consistently has been characterized in news stories, company websites and his own internal Army resume as having a doctorate.

Stolen valor? Video of alleged fake soldier sparks outrage - U.S. - Stripes: To the untrained eye, he might have looked like a decorated war hero.

But it didn’t take long for two Marines to decide there was something off about the uniformed man outside the military funeral, who wore medals as prestigious as the Silver Star. And when they started asking questions, they became even more convinced: The guy was a fraud — a fake soldier.

The July 19 exchange, captured on camera outside a West Palm Beach church and posted online, has now been seen by hundreds of thousands of people. Those who have served in the military have responded with outrage.

Column: Senator's claim that PTSD caused plagiarism ridiculous | The Times Weekly | Community Newspaper in Chicagoland Metropolitan Area

Column: Senator's claim that PTSD caused plagiarism ridiculous | The Times Weekly | Community Newspaper in Chicagoland Metropolitan Area: U.S. Sen. John Walsh, D-Montana, has claimed PTSD caused him to plagiarize his War College master's degree thesis in 2007.

With this ridiculous, dishonorable utterance, Walsh has once again brought the specter of PTSD and the myth of the dangerous veteran into the news. Once again, the general public is being given not just a wrong but a very damaging idea of what PTSD is and what it is not. Once again, not only truth but those who do genuinely struggle with this issue are victimized.
