I fell down a youtube rabbit hole this evening. Apparently incidents of people pretending to be veterans or veterans pretending to have been awarded medals they were not is on the rise. There are some wild videos out there of folks just lying like crazy and doubling down on it as they're called out. Understandably, the veterans confronting them are outraged and furious. I have to wonder though, are these people insane? Search it on youtube, you'll see countless examples of what I'm talking about. Even ridiculously brazen ones, like folks claiming to have been awarded the medal of honor or to be POW's at gatherings where everyone else immediately knows they're full of shit. And it makes me wonder if I've walked by this sort of thing and not realized it?
