Ryan 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. I'm guessing he was trying his hand at some discounts.

i do feel that the veteran overacted. No one knows the mental condition in which the impersonator is in; and while it is possible he was trying to take advantage of sales, i do think it was wrong for the veteran to verbally abuse him in a shopping mall, and in front of his family no less.
It's better than making a fool of oneself while embarrassing your family.

These people are criminals and they should be called out where ever they are found.
By screaming obscenities in a crowd of children and Christmas shoppers? Really?

Or it was just a # bag staff sgt. it's not like those don't exist.
Was he right about the CIB'S? Seems like that would be the only thing he really got him on.
I would be willing to be he is a recruiter tho, and would also explain why he was with his Sgt. Major as those usually head the offices and black friday would be a recruiters dream.
I don't think they should be able to wear their fatigues anywhere public, would cut this down a lot.
As a triple CIB recipient himself, Grange understood that being awarded three Combat Infantryman Badges was a very rare achievement and thought a list should be compiled to celebrate the recipients' distinction. With his urging, the National Infantry Museum at Fort Benning began collecting names of known 3rd CIB recipients.
