    I live in the city where a lot of SEALs live. SEAL team 6 is here. He lives in a nearby area.

    Three of my neighbors are SEALs. They NEVER talk about it. Never act in any way different, never boast, nothing. The only way I know about it is two of the wives and ones girlfriend mentioned it to me in casual neighbor type circumstances. And the guys I know are the nicest people you'd ever meet. But I would not cross one.

    At least he was finally caught, he did quite the scam/con job. I do hope he gets his just desserts, it would be even better if it was from an actually someone from the teams

    I know one seal and one old UDT and have met a couple of other SEALs. They are very quiet about it from what I have seen. Same goes for other guys I know who were in similar units.

    In my job, I interact from time-to-time with all sorts of Special Forces troops. I've found that a good rule of thumb is " The more they talk, the less they've done". The real heroes don't feel a need to brag to civilians like me. And I've also found them to be, almost without exception, courteous and cooperative to deal with.

    Soledad O'Brien's inside "operator" deserves another bump.

    I don't know how anybody bought his DD214 to begin with... half the medals (of which there are quite a few) are misspelled. Unless someone came up with a "Navy Sitinguished Service Medal" and a "meritiorious service medal" in the week since I got out of the military, anyway :p. Also, I'm fairly certain there is no presidental unit citation... but hey, who knows...

    I've know only one person that I can confirm was in the Special Forces (Army Rangers to be exact.) He rarely if ever talked about it much to people that he knew, much less to total strangers, and he never advertised that he served in the Special Forces.

    If asked what he did in the Military, he usually said he was in the infantry. He was injured in a training exercise and was honorably discharged for medical reasons.

    My friend says that most of the guys that he served with didn't really like taking about their Military job outside of the Military for various reasons, aside from what they weren't permitted to talk about anyhow.

    www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Presidential_Unit_Citation_(United_States)

    The individual equivalent is the Navy Cross, which (IIRC) he also awarded to himself.

    nope... that one is the PresidentIAL Unit Citation. I assume the Presidental Unit Citation is received for outstanding work on POTUS's wisdom teeth :p.

    He did also award himself a Navy Cross... which I assume is the Navy equivalent of the Distinguished Service/Flying Cross. He also gave himself the silver star attachment. Which is impressive, since to my knowledge nobody has ever been awarded the six service cross medals necessary to deserve such a thing. Self-delusion knows no bounds, evidently.

    Check it out if you like, his fake DD214 is towards the bottom of his POWnetwork profile.

    So many of these guys no matter how thorough they think they've been, just don't do enough background work that they ultimately fail due to some very minor discrepancy or mistake. One phoney in full uniform prentending to be a Marine Colonel using the base PX for unearned benefits, was tripped up when a PFC on guard at the maingate noticed he was wearing a Silver Star ribbon with a combat "V" attachment. Any real Marine would have known the the Silver Star is a strictly combat award so no combat "V" device is needed. Its little things like this that thankfully trip up these morons and reveal them for what they are. My personal opinion is that they should be prosecuted for this impersonation. This guy falsified his DD214 and that is a violation of the law.

    To me, these guys are too pathetic to be hated. If they defraud someone or some organization in the course of their impersonation... they should of course be prosecuted for fraud/theft/whatever. If all they want is attention and respect that better men than them have earned... I think they should just be persecuted for rampant *********gery. I.E., humiliated in public to whatever extent is possible. Seems somehow wrong to me to put somebody in prison just for being a jerk. Even here in Texas, we'd run outta cells real fast if we got into that habit.
