I skipped around and this guy claims he was Navy Captain. That means he was an O6. The other guy starts calling him out on how Navy Captains typically don't become outlaw bikers.
06?! Jesus. Maybe a rare, vintage-Italian-with-gold-trim, once-driven-by-Ian-Fleming, outlaw biker.
In his defense, I've seen Army captains turn out pretty badly, but Army captains are only 03s, and I think the outlaw biker recruitment standards cut off at 6 figure salaries.
What paygrade are Coast Guard Captains? Do you guys even have Captains?
Coast Guard Captain, that must be the life. 0k+ a year, plus benefits, and all you have to do is... what? Sit on the beach and make sure no whales wash up?
Forget navy captains becoming bikers. The Hell's Angels are essentially a white supremacist organization.
And you don't just walk around by yourself with your patches on.
This guy is a compulsive liar and he's lucky to be alive.
I'm sure Coast Guard captains work just as hard as any colonels.
Whatever happened to pretending you're like a doctor for little kids, famous soccer star, a formula racecar driver, or whatever obscure-yet-impressive-sounding thing most americans don't know anything about to get your free beers and impress women?
Do these guys not know pretending to be a soldier can be a crime but pretending to be almost anything else is just being a poser?
Is pretending to be a hipster the same thing as being one?
Pretending to be -a soldier- is a crime; I dunno about pretending to be a sailor, though. I think the shame of being a sailor is enough to discourage most wannabes, SEALs or not.
P.S. please stop calling sailors "soldiers".
Pretending to be a doctor is a crime given the right circumstances. Someone collapses at a restaurant and you've been telling people you're a doctor they'll expect you to help. I guess that's the time you fess up, or you go for it. If the person dies because you didn't know what you were doing though you're in deep shit.
If you pretend that you're a soldier that's really shitty, and if you're taking advantage of VA services that's illegal, but otherwise you're just telling a story. People did that all the time after WW2. Doesn't make it right but it happened.

Pretending to be a member of any branch of the Armed Forces is only illegal if you attempt to get government benefits. Otherwise, it's just free speech and a potential ass kicking.
Um, the biggest perk is the free Applebee's.
The entire Coast Guard is a special force.
Not special in the way you troll. Any jerk with a weapon can take a life, it takes true courage and valor to save lives.
actually it's a crime to pretend that you received a medal/commendation etc in order to receive financial gain.
I'm pretty sure if a prosecutor is pissed enough, he could interpret a high rank as a commendation, and free beer as financial gain.

It's funny how the guy hosting the video mentions that most stolen valor people have had a bad experience in the military, because I've noticed most people who care this much about some fibbing old drunk are low-key bragging to fish for praise.
Or selling their own "Navy SEAL training course" or whatever.
Military fakers are a particularly pathetic brand of lowlife, and should get called out. However, there are people who go about this business with a lot lower profile than Big Don. There is definitely something quite smug about this guy (a smug SEAL? never) and his whole business.
The goofiest part to me is how it's spread to his wife. Parents, siblings, and perhaps most obnoxiously of all wives telling real deal guys where the hands stand on the clock is very tedious.
I can't really knock Don too hard though. He's trying to make a buck and embarrass some idiots, and is by no means the only guy, military or otherwise, with an annoying ego-persona.
We wouldn't have military fakers if we didn't have this culture of soldier worship.
stars for the first few seconds of this.
it's a shitty cgi-laden skit of a bombing run on fake seals, wherein his fat wife plays an f-16 pilot (STOLEN VALOR), and he misquotes captain ahab ("from hell's heart i spit at thee").
also one of the people they pretend to bomb is a bonafide exhibit. he is a pedophile who was pretending to be a seal, and has lengthy, sobbing videos filmed inside of a tent in which he tries to justify his doodling of a 12-year-old.
aaaand i'm going outside, the weather is too nice for this bullshit.
