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!

I could show them my VA card. I also have my dog tag on my key ring.

I wear one of mine, one of my dad's, and one of my grandfather's dog tags if I felt the need was important to prove it.....99 times out of 100 I would just walk away.

Like the old quote says "I can't fix stupid." I have nothing to prove, the Navy has proof of my service, I have proof of my service, so if that isn't good enough for anyone that's their problem not mine. BTW if I never served how do I get on the base every month to do my shopping, how did I get Tricare insurance and whose DOD issued ID card am I carrying?

I would laugh at them, after a very indignant wife or daughter lit into them. Nothing for me to prove. That's the difference between the real and the fake.

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

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.

Once upon a time, everyone knew we were lying when we started a story with “There I was...” or “ This ain’t no shit”. Guess we can’t tell our bullshit “war” stories any more while having fun. It might offend someone. Oh well. We live in a new age. To much press waiting to call us out and discredit us and too many real life possers. I’d just tell them they’re stuck on stupid and to go away

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 When the picture got severely out of date (no longer skinny, plus the picture had me looking like I was wearing sunglasses - my auto-dark lenses were staying dark after a few years in use), I requested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.

Wish they’d let us retirees have CAC cards. We’re “Army For Life” until we have to access DFAS or Tricare on Linr

Interesting occurrence recently - my retiree dependent ID card was not considered CAC for Census Employment but my "not for federal ID" driver's license was.
