Stolen valor is a deeply troubling and dishonorable act that involves individuals falsely claiming to have received military honors or served in the armed forces, typically for personal gain or recognition. This deceitful behavior not only undermines the genuine sacrifices made by veterans and active-duty military personnel but also erodes the trust and respect society places in those who have served their country.

Stolen valor can manifest in various forms, from wearing unearned military medals and uniforms to fabricating elaborate stories of heroic service. It is widely condemned, and various laws and organizations exist to prevent and expose such fraudulent claims, ensuring that the true valor of those who have selflessly defended their nation is duly recognized and honored.

We have seen hundreds of cases of Stolen Valor in the SEAL Community. Ret. SEAL Senior Chief Don Shipley has spent years exposing frauds on YouTube and his website.
