    Steven Burton will make his initial court appearance in federal court at 9:30 a.m. Thursday.





    Los Angeles, California (CNN) -- A California man is facing a criminal charge for wearing numerous Navy medals despite the fact he never served in the military, federal prosecutors said Wednesday.
    Steven Burton, 39, of Palm Springs, California, has agreed to surrender to authorities Thursday morning, Thom Mrozek, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office, Central District of California, said in a statement. He will make his initial court appearance in federal court in Riverside, California, at 9:30 a.m.
    Burton has never served with any branch of the U.S. military, authorities said, but was seen and photographed several times wearing military uniforms and various medals, including a Purple Heart and the Navy Cross, the highest medal awarded by the U.S. Navy....

    Damn, I'm not even an armed forces type guy, but I know that wearing those medals is something you DON'T do.
    I can't imagine how much people affiliated with the armed forces must feel about that.

    the woman who busted his ass was smart. she saw him wearing medals, went over all fake starry-eyed and got a pic with him, then sent the pic to the proper authorities. quick thinking on her part.

    Unless they're mental, I'd guess that it's for the same reasons that people fake anything else about their pasts. To get a better job or to pick up chicks.

    There is a huge difference between saying "Yea, I'm a movie producer" and dressing up as a decorated marine at your high school reunion.

    For the same reason people play "professional" roller hockey and get "inducted" into Martial Arts Hall of Fames I suppose. Of course, anyone with a brain can see through the examples I provided, while fake-military people often go unnoticed by otherwise educated people.

    Well, if there's one thing that life has taught me, it's that there are people in this world who have absolutely no concept of 'taking things too far' (or at least a wildly different concept) when it comes to financial gain or getting positive attention and/or free stuff. Basically, they're pricks.

    Saw this on ARRSE what a tool. Because we don't have stole valour laws here in the UK you get tools wearing replica French Imperial Medals and all sorts on thier blazer while telling you they were the 2nd man on the balcony at the Iranian Embassy seige. Jail the ****.
