HR 3352 IH

109th CONGRESS

1st Session

H. R. 3352

To amend title 18, United States Code, with respect to protections for the Medal of Honor, and for other purposes.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

July 19, 2005

Mr. SALAZAR introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary

A BILL

To amend title 18, United States Code, with respect to protections for the Medal of Honor, and for other purposes.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the `Stolen Valor Act of 2005'.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

Congress finds that--

(1) fraudulent claims surrounding receipt of the Medal of Honor, the Distinguished-Service Cross, the Air Force Cross, the Navy Cross, the Purple Heart, or any other medal or decoration awarded by Congress or the armed forces damage the reputation and meaning of these medals;

(2) Federal law enforcement officers are currently limited in their ability to prosecute fraudulent claims of receipt of military medals; and

(3) changes to the current statute are necessary to allow law enforcement personnel to protect the reputation and meaning of these medals.

SEC. 3. MILITARY MEDAL PROTECTIONS.

Section 704 of title 18, United States Code, is amended--

(1) in subsection (a)--

(A) by inserting `purchases, attempts to purchase, solicits for purchase, mails, ships, imports, exports, produces blank certificates of receipt,' after `wears'; and

(B) by inserting `attempts to sell, advertises for sale, trades, barters or exchanges for anything of value' after `sells';

(2) in subsection (b)(1), by inserting `or (b)' after `subsection (a)'

(3) by redesignating subsection (b) as subsection (c);

(4) by inserting after subsection (a) the following:

`(b) False Claims About Receipt of Military Medals- Whoever falsely represents himself or herself, verbally or in writing, to have been awarded any decoration or medal authorized by Congress for the armed forces of the United States, or any of the service medals or badges awarded to the members of such forces, or the ribbon, button, or rosette of any such badge, decoration or medal, or any colorable imitation thereof shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.'; and

(5) by adding at the end the following:

`(d) Other Medals- If a decoration or medal involved in an offense under subsection (a) or (b) is a Distinguished Service Cross awarded under Section 3742 of title 10, an Air Force Cross awarded under section 8742 of section 10, a Navy cross awarded under section 6242 of title 10, a silver star awarded under section 3746, 6244, or 8746 of title 10, or a Purple Heart awarded under section 1129 of title 10, or any replacement or duplicate medal as authorized by statute, in lieu of the punishment provided in that subsection, the offender shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 1 year, or both.'.

From Ray Funderburk, MOPH

The greatest threat to the sanctity and significance of the Purple Heart comes from the medal's easy availability. Anyone can buy one at flea markets, pawnshops or on the Internet, where Web sites offer the decoration, no questions asked, for as little as $35. An accompanying certificate on onion skin parchment and personalized with your name and any rank you choose costs about $25.

Such commerce in the symbols of American courage and sacrifice would be outlawed by a measure spearheaded last July by Rep. John Salazar, D-Colo. His "Stolen Valor Act" would make it a federal crime to falsely wear the Purple Heart and other top military decorations, or to even list them on a resume if they were not officially earned.

But the proposed bill now sits in the House Judiciary Committee, and its fate remains unclear. "We're waiting for the committee to act," said Salazar

With all due respect, there are more important things for the Congress to be doing. Seen their schedule? They spend MORE time out of Washington then in it! Going to be worse since this is an election year. Sorry this is just one of those feel good PR ploys Democrats throw out so they can go home and claim "See we support the troops too". Actually I would be MORE impressed with a bill to increase pay and benefits like the Republicans passed LAST year or if a Salazar would offer up a bill to increase the size of the active duty military then this meaningless feel good PR stunt. OR how about this. OUTLAW the selling of medals. That ANGRERS me greatly that these symbols of honor earned can be SOLD at a flee market.

I respect all the very good work you do Cal, but this is a minor matter

What effect, if any, will this have on rinky-dink administrations, like X42, when they issue medals erroneously?

Ref: The purple hearts they gave out to the patrol that was captured by Albanians during the Bosnian dustup.

Purple heart medals are not supposed to be given for being captured.

You know that I know that you know.........

Nut cracker; Murtha's separation from active service and subsequent transfer to Reserves in 1967 lists all awards earned for his active duty service. Other awards my be addenda....such as Unit Citations but not Purple Hearts.

Darkwing....did you remember registering your DD 214 with the County Registrar at your home of record as instructed?

So many records, so little time.

THIS is something that hanoi kerry can't get out of!

The Swift Boat Vets, proved, without any doubt,
to any logical, reasoning person,
that hanoi kerry's 1st Purple Heart is a fraud.

Now that Republicans AND Democrats are behind this bill
and since the GOP has control of both houses in Congress
hanoi kerry has finally been caught.

"the offender shall be fined under this title,
imprisoned not more than 1 year, or both."

Their is nothing about IF the fraud was committed before this bill.

IF hanoi kerry does not renounce his 1st Purple Heart
(and his 2nd and 3rd)
he's guilty of fraud and gets to go to jail.

I wonder if Sen. Harkin will support this bill. He is highlighted in the book Stolen Valor as someone who lied about serving in combat when he never did.

I don't believe the author of this bill is a veteran. Why would a non veteran author this bill and more importantly, why hasn't a veteran in congress thought of it yet?

My Sepros was in '71. Told to register.....keep a copy of the DD214 with me in my wallet because cops were looking for draft dodgers and deserters at the time. (Gave me 20 copies at Sepros)

Darkwing....understand situation, identity theft was unheard of when I left.

Nut Cracker....Kerry's would have been registered unless he was on Legal Hold. I think he was but there's a fine time line there.
