How about if a vet throws his medals over the white house fence (a la Kerry)...?

Hey,I was a SP5 who got a Good Conduct Medal (and nothing more) but I have trouble with this.When you claim to have won the Medal of Honor in an attempt to get a job or to gain in some other financial way then they should throw the book at you.
But if you're just bragging to your buddies at the bar,or even at your American Legion post I have trouble with such bragging getting you a year in the slammer.
Go ahead....flame away.But I see this as being the conservative answer to "hate crimes".

I am certain that Murtha will put this high on his things to do list when he gets the new job. Not!

Hmmm... Sure, claiming medals that were not actually awarded is a pretty lowlife thing to do, but I'm not sure it needs to be against the law.

Asking Congress Critters to pass a law against "Stolen Valor", may be unconstitutional..
One may not be asked to incriminate oneself...
Several of the bastards have claimed medals the didn't EARN.
