Well, This is Horse Crap........
US appeals court panel: Law against faking receipt of military medals is unconstitutional.......
A three-year-old federal law that makes it a crime to falsely claim to have received a medal from the U.S. military is unconstitutional, an appeals court panel in California ruled Tuesday.
The decision involves the case of Xavier Alvarez of Pomona, Calif., a water district board member who said at a public meeting in 2007 that he was a retired Marine who received the Medal of Honor, the nation's highest military decoration
This seriously pi$$es me off. The Medal of Honor......
Petty Officer Second Class (SEAL) Michael A. Monsoor received the award for his actions in Ar Ramadi, Iraq on Sept. 29, 2006.
On that day, Monsoor was part of a sniper overwatch security position with three other SEALs and eight Iraqi Army (IA) soldiers.
An insurgent closed in and threw a fragmentation grenade into the overwatch position.
The grenade hit Monsoor in the chest before falling to the ground.
Positioned next to the single exit, Monsoor was the only one who could have escaped harm. Instead, he dropped onto the grenade to shield the others from the blast.
Monsoor died approximately 30 minutes later from wounds sustained from the blast.
Because of Petty Officer Monsoor’s actions, he saved the lives of his 3 teammates and the IA soldiers.
Taking false credit for being an equal to a Man like Monsoor is simply despicable. I hope you rot Alvarez.
My Dad, the SarMajor, as many of you Folks know, received Three Purple Hearts, One Silver Star and Two Bronze Stars in the Battle for Peleliu in WWII.
Tomorrow is his 89th Birfday. Happy Birfday, Dad, see you over Labor Day.......
These Men earned their Medals. I believe sincerely, no matter what the Circuit Court just ruled, that Alvarez earned a major kick in the nuts.
