I do not think it is. The guy has issues. This is about on par with a ten year old dressing up in uniform. I am on the fence on the stolen valor issue. If people are trying to pass themselves off as something they are not for personal gain such as money, gifts, and other free stuff or opportunities then Yes, it is stolen valor and just plain old theft. The crazy guy in Clarksville, TN walking around talking to himself in ACUs is not a case of stolen valor nor is my son wearing my old uniforms hunting but some say it is. There are active duty thieves using the uniform for free stuff, telling lies about their service, wearing medals they did not earn, and many get a pass because they serve. The guy here acts like he is disturbed and is living out a fantasy. Anyone taking him seriously is truly ignorant. I do not think he is a threat. If he previously served and walked away disturbed like he is then he needs help.
