Over in the U.S. stolen valor is a pretty serious thing. There are hundreds of people out there posing as soldiers, and reaping the rewards.
They get discount in shops, pose for pictures with kids and families alike and are often thanked by passers-by for their service. A service these cowards have never once carried out.
However, in the past few years, it has thankfully become a thing to out these people. Actual soldiers or family and friends of soldiers actively make sure they expose anyone who they believe is impersonating someone from the military – and it always ends up on YouTube.
The following compilation video is just a handful of the clips that have gone viral in the past, and it’s glorious to watch as they buckle under the pressure.
Keep in mind that the last one is actually a sketch.
