We need to have a talk guys.


Alright, so remember a little while ago when I posted this?

I was serious about that, and it bothers me that not enough of you saw it in time. Allow me to reiterate just the steps for you in case the last article was to long, and you didn’t read it.

  1. Identify the person in question.
  2. Approach the person in a respectful and professional manner.
  3. Identify any apparent disabilities.
  4. Find out the legitimacy of the persons service.
  5. If they are in fact breaking the law, and using the uniforms or medals for their own gain, begin recording.
  6. Get video/photographic evidence of the infractions to the law, pay close attention to their medals, along with their state ID.
  7. Remain calm, and professional.
  8. Catch the person in a lie, and let them continue to dig their own hole.
  9. Call them on their lie, and discover their reasoning for it.
  10. Remain calm, and professional.
  11. Explain to them why what they are doing is wrong.
  12. Show them the Stolen Valor federal law. (H.R.258)
  13. Remain calm, and professional. Calmly remove yourself from the situation.

Here’s why this is important. When you go out and physically attack someone for Stolen Valor you make yourself, and everyone else, look bad. Also, there’s a chance, that you might be wrong in your assumptions. That’s why you follow the above steps, and protect yourself plus the person in question.

Phantom Fury Veteran

Michael Delfin, the Marine who was attacked by two airmen, now sits laid up on his couch. He has to make multiple trips to an orthopedic surgeon because some coward airmen jumped him from behind. He has a possible fractured leg and jaw. Him and his wife are currently attempting to ID the suspects to bring them to justice. We here at Funker530 fully support this action.

Here is a description of the suspects coming straight from Michael’s wife: “I need help ID’ing these guys. We know the one is stationed at Travis AFB. He has a tattoo of a microphone and music notes on his forearm and on his right shoulder something that looked like a Grimm reaper. He is about 6’5″ dark hair. Either from Oregon or an Oregon Ducks fan judging by his clothes. The other guy worked for a painting company in the area. Want to say is was CS painting. No tattoos that I could see. They both like singing karaoke.”
