Non-veteran wearing military medals

I don't know if anybody else has seen/posted this. There was talk about the "stolen valor" act and consequences for folks who wear medals they didn't earn.

 

My guess is that since JayTeef (typo and it stays) was dressed for a reenactment film, and since he has not attempted to pass himself off as a WW2 vet,* this would not be actionable.

 

*Wait and see if that's the next grand idea up Dougie's sleeve.

All those VF boyz do realize there are some real wars they can go to right now if they think fighting is so awesome, right?

I suspect that the old gentleman JT was talking to was too polite to either claw the medals off his uniform or ask where he got the nerve to sport ironmongery that he didn't earn.

In other words, they're endlessly generous with other people's guts.

I've been to reenactments and there are a lot of people who wear fake military medals, as well as all the war movies. I thought it was OK if it was clear that you weren't trying to present yourself as a legit veteran. My grandfather, who actually served in the military, didn't have a problem with it either, because none of these people were trying to pass it off.

Although I don't know about the VF people doing this, it just seems sketchier, somehow.

Two things. 1) The Stolen Valor Act required that you present yourself as having earned military honors that you never did. 2) It's a little moot, because the Act was found unconstitutional, as a violation of free speech.

It is ok.

I am not saying I think the VF is so morally great or that they say used facts in their reenactment...but I don't think the wearing of costumes of what appears to be a correct period is the cross they should die on.

      So angry right now.  If I could return to Luxembourg tomorrow and renounce my citizenship in this stinking shitpile of a country I would.

      My niece is going to be a seat filler at this year's Academy Awards.  Seat fillers are asked to wear tuxedos regardless of sex/gender.  If you see a pretty young woman with very curly hair, it could be my niece.

      Yeah, that's me.  Though to be fair I am trying to learn Italian and Spanish.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I have a friend with untreated autism and ADHD. I've tried so fucking hard to help. He refuses. It's a mess. I'm really really tired.
