Stolen Valor; Ranger Up’s Perspective

The guys at Ranger Up have an issue with the stolen valor a$$clowns out there…so they made a video.

Ranger Up has some great apparel, but Douche of the Week has always been my favorite feature of their website (the Rhino Den portion, that is).

    haha…

  • I know this was for fun – &, yes it’s funny … but thx for at leats trying yo get some attention to the message, the Supreme Court’s BS decision of the Stolen Valor Act. I’ve never served, but have friends since 9/11 that have served with Valor and have had their lives Stolen while serving with distinction & honor.

    Thanks again guys!

    This video is hilarious and the uniform must have been donated by a legit stolen valor clown because they all wear them like that. ha ha ha. I do disagree with some who say you should go to jail just for saying you were a ranger or SEAL or you got a silver star. Its the same thing as actual soldiers in supply jobs who never left the wire saying they were in a 24 hour long firefight and lost 75% of their platoon. Or someone saying they were a firemen or cop and saved a woman from a burning car she was trapped in. Its called BS and its on us to call it. The PC attitude we have now is to make it illegal like everything which only makes us more sheep like waiting for someone else to take care of it for us.

      I agree, it’s one thing to lie about being a SEAL, Delta, or serious combat vet just to make yourself look cool and/or to get laid but it’s something else entirely if you do the same for financial gain to include running for office or to get a job. If all you’re doing is trying to get laid then you’re just a ****** and really shouldn’t get much more than get called out and threatened with an *** beating if continue to mis-represent themselves anywhere near those who know better. If you’re doing it for some form of financial gain then that should be illegal and the liar should be not only hit with a fine and probably probation, but also publicly outted; jail time might be nice but I think that our jails are crowded enough and should be reserved for more serious offenders. Besides, it’s not like they would do any hard time, more than likely if Stolen Valor became a prosecutable act any found guilty would just get to sent to Club Fed if they made jail time a penalty.

    About 90 seconds too long.
