    Check out the attached photo of an Airborne/Special Forces/Ranger qualified Combat Veteran imposter. God help him when he runs into the real deal and is challenged about his so-called credentials. I received this from my counterparts at USSOCOM in Tampa. "LTC Martin Allen" is going around to various establishments (American Legion, VFW and civilian bars) saying he's Special Forces and getting free drinks and food. He's been seen in Melbourne, FL and locations up and down I-95. The attached photos were taken in Michigan. If you zoom in on the table-top advertisement next to the Budweiser bottle (about waist high and to the right in the photo) It reads..."Michigan Lottery Pull Tabs".

    If this guy indeed earned the CIB w/two stars, he'd be long in the tooth and no longer Active Duty. You will see heroes wearing a CIB with one-star; service in El Salvador, Grenada, Panama, Desert Shield/Storm, Somalia and/or Iraq, Afghanistan. This poser has been seen with O-5 rank on his uniform while sporting O-4 rank on his Beret and a Special Forces tab on his right shoulder. For the uninitiated, the right shoulder denotes combat service in a particular unit. A SOF patch with Airborne tab is authorized for wear on the right shoulder, NOT the SF Tab. Wearing three rows of Qual badges on the ACU is out of Reg (Combat Infantryman Badge, Combat Medic Badge, Master Military Freefall Badge, Air Assault and Master Parachutist Badge). Also, the brown T-shirt is a NOGO with ACUs.

    Pass this on and hopefully we'll get this Poser off the street.

    Considering it's now a crime to do so and that guy was getting free drinks and stuff from people wherever he went because of the stories he would tell it's something that shouldn't be left alone.

    i really don't care about shit like this. if I saw someone at a bar doing this I would call them out for sure, but I seriously don't think being a poser should be grounds for jail time.

    I think it falls along the same lines as why it is illegal to pose as cops, as it can mislead and be used to harm others. Soldiers with little experience can get themselves into serious trouble if they believe they are following orders from a senior ranked soldier.

    I never said it was ok. I think its pathetic. But i don't think it should be illegal unless he is trying to conduct military business or any similiar act.

    He's a douchbag who has to pretend he is someone he's not. In my opinion, he's punishing himself.

    As far as I know, you're not allowed to wear ACUs in a bar.

    You are not authorized to wear any military uniform in establishments where 60% of the sales are due to alcoholic beverages.:coolugh:
