1SG Blount, it appears he created it since it has Afghanistan Special Force Identifaction Card at the bottom.  It is a good forgery but still not good enough to our trained eyes. If he got a really he could probably create a lot of fakes.

A jacked up uniform does not necessarily imply a case of stolen valor. You should see some of the jacked up uniforms I have run across on bases over the years. I don't usually get involved with outing them. Typically, I have better things to do with my time than try and out every pretender or embellisher I come across. That would be a full time job in itself. The other reason I don't bother with it is that we live in a very dangerous society and initiating a confrontation has the potential for it to escalate into violence. Again better things to do with my time than deal with a self defense scenario that could have been avoided in the first place. I understand not wanting to walk past a mistake, but I suppress that urge to avoid potential issues. Honestly, I didn't survive three combat deployments to risk getting shot over something that could be avoided. I prefer to let karma take its toll, because the pretenders will get theirs in the end.

Believe it or not, we discovered our VFW Post Commander was a perpetrator of Stolen Valor. I, and all our line officers, our Judge Advocate, State Commander and staff caught him in a secure location (no escape) and persuaded him to resign, then turned his written confession over to authorities.

Been there, done that SGT Dennis Sweet Undfortunately in our case he was deceased after we proved him ineligible for VFW membership. My brother and I really had to lean on the post to have them take down his picture as Post Commander. Wasn't eligible for membership, he certainly isn't eligible to be Commander!
