Why can’t the publics thirst for knowledge and curiosity of the human condition just be quenched by the real account. This, “it’s not good enough” mentality leads men down a slippery slope from listening to the hype to freebasing another’s valor.
That is just one line in a great blog post written by Bouhammer.com friend Toby Nunn up on The Rhino Den. I encourage you to go check it out and read about how it is not just those who have never served that are guilt of stolen valor, but also those who served admirably and with pride that also slip into the pit of lies and deceit. Toby wrote a great piece and I think it deserved to be spread far and wide so as many as possible can read it. Check it out at http://rhinoden.rangerup.com/hype-is-the-gateway-drug-to-stolen-valor/
