McDonaldAdding to my latest post about Sniper Posers…we have a new addition to the Stolen Valor club.  New Veterans Affairs Secretary (and former Proctor & Gamble CEO) Robert McDonald today admitted to lying about being a Special Forces Soldier (Green Beret).  This is the same person who confronted Iraq War Veteran  (both Iraq wars) and Republican Congressman Mike Coffman (R. Colorado) and pointedly asked “What have you done?”  McDonald then talked about how he had “…run a major company..”

It is bad enough when a civilian who has never served lies about their service.  It is more egregious when a military member who served honorably lies about their service. It is absolutely not acceptable when the Secretary of the VA lies about his service.  Let’s be clear, the VA is one of the most incompetent, corrupt organizations in the entire US Government.  Shame on him!  He belongs on the Stolen Valor Wall of Shame!

1marSSSchool (1)With the impending release of American Sniper, many of us in the Marine Sniper community cringed knowing that it would spawn a new group of posers and Stolen Valor idiots claiming to be snipers.  Well…we weren’t wrong.  Our secret Facebook pages (yes, we have ‘secret’ pages) have been filling up with stories of people claiming to be Marine Snipers (no doubt our Army, and Navy brothers are having the same issues).  Even Marines who legitimately served as Marines have been caught fraudulently claiming ‘sniper’ status.  We have caught Disabled Surfers, CEOs, and Bikers making the claims.  Here are some things you can ask and how you can quickly confirm if someone is legitimately a Marine Scout/Sniper or a poser..

EarlWith the release of Holly Wood Blockbuster American Sniper a number of Reconnaissance Marines and Marine Scout Snipers (including me) have been asked to comment, debate, and be interviewed about the movie and its portrayal of snipers.  I am very proud to see my brothers in arms representing our group with such intelligent, articulate points.  Here are a few of the recent videos.

SniperNPRI was asked to interview for NPR’s “Here and Now” related to the movie American Sniper and the role of snipers in combat. This was the result of writing an article for the National Review on the same subject.  If you are interested in listening to the interview, you can listen to it here.  Most importantly, I was able to get some well needed press for the R&S Foundation (Recon and Sniper).  This is a charity formed to help those brothers in our community (and other service members and veterans) who may be struggling.  We just found out that we lost another one of brothers yesterday. Please visit www.SniperFoundation.org
