At a military funeral this weekend in Florida, a couple of Marines confronted a man dressed in a U.S. Army dress uniform.

The back-and-forth, in West Palm Beach on Sunday, started off well enough, with polite questions about his medals and ribbons.  Then the Marines started to get very suspicious of the self-proclaimed “sergeant major.” They later posted the video on Facebook.

WATCH:

The two Marines catch him in one too many lies about everything from violating uniform code to wearing the wrong ribbons and medals. The man variously called himself a sergeant major, a military policeman, and a special forces operator.

He also claims to have won a Bronze Star with a “V” for valor for saving one of his men from “killing himself” – first on a military base, then changing the supposed locale to Iraq. That’s when things got heated:

You know that’s called false valor? It is a federal crime for you to be wearing that uniform,” one of the Marines asks the fraudster, to which he only unleashed a series of expletives and moved towards his car (which caught him in yet another lie since he said he was from North Carolina).

One hopes these Marines follow-up on this faker, who unbelievably had the gall to turn up at a funeral for a fallen hero. If you have any information that can help them, please email us at tips@toprightnews.com.
