During Black Friday weekend this US Army veteran spotted a suspicious looking ‘ranger’ doing a bit of shopping at a local mall.
So he decided to call him out. And the results couldn’t have gone any better. Not only was the ‘ranger’ extremely stuttery and nervous-looking, but he couldn’t answer the simplest questions. Questions that any legitimate army ranger would have answered without a problem.
This is what Stolen Valor had to say about it:
“A former Infantryman from Easy Co 2/506 101st sent us this video of him calling out a fake Ranger at a local mall. This guy couldn’t answer basic questions that he should’ve known, he was wearing a CIB with three stars and tried to say he got them all for Iraq and Afghanistan.. Not possible as you can only get one for both campaigns.”
Some people don’t agree with the method in which this phoney was “harassed”, but when you put the pieces together, it’s quite clearly an infuriating situation, especially for someone who went through the actual process of becoming a soldier.
It’s widely known that active soldiers get discounts in many stores across the US, so it doesn’t take a genius to realise what this man was up to.
