What would you do if some loud-mouth moron tried to publicly "out" you for "Stolen Valor" because they didn't believe you ever served?

PO1 (Join to see) I'd walk away - I don't have anything to prove to anyone about my accomplishments, medals, or awards. My integrity is intact and I won't let some idiot provoke me into rearranging their face. I'm retired and those are part of my family now and will be handed down to my daughters and their family when I'm dead and gone, along with the DD Form 214 that authorizes all of them! End of story!

PO1 (Join to see)i have nothing to proof, so I’d just walk away. If the person keeps pursuing it or threatens me, I’d just reply with “sue me” and continue walking away. Not worth getting into an argument with anyone; life’s to short.

It's actually happened to me a couple times. I just pull my retired USAF ID out and show them. If that's ever not good enough, they can KMA and take that long walk down the long hot stairway.

Poke them in the eye with my DD214 and give 'em a paper cut with my Blue ID card.

LOL I'm to fat to wear my uniform now... I did have someone question my ranger tab because I didn't know what Ranger panties were. A few indisputable facts from school and the time before pt gear in our class we got shit because we got to run in running shoes and not boots. All worked out before third round of drinks so I didn't get peered out of the bar...

CW3 Dan Mackey - Chief, the 43rd Engineer barracks was just down the street from the Rangers at Benning , we used to run PT through Ranger land and sing un-complimentary cadences and the Ranger panties were one of the targets. Those were good days not to be the slow guy.

TSgt Ed Loomis - Interesting. My active duty ID was green, I think. But my first retired ID was no-frills black border. When the picture got severely out of date (no longer skinny, plus the picture had me looking like I was wearing sunglasses - my auto-dark lenses were staying dark after a few years in use), I requested a new one - it had blue all around. Guess the Coast Guard was finally catching up with the other services.
