I absolutely hate posers, but none worse than sum of the earth cowards like Thomas Barnhart who pinned-on hero medals to steal valor from real heroes.
I’m thrilled that mega creep Thomas Barnhart received a full year in prison for wearing a Navy Seal trident, plus more ribbons than anybody could earn in a lifetime. Look at this loser, a six-year old could look at this creep and know he is a poser:
Weirdo Thomas Barnhart is off to jail
In additonal to claiming to be a SEAL, he claimed to have earned the Silver Star, Bronze Star with “V” for valor, Purple Heart with four stars, a Combat Action Ribbon and Vietnam War-era awards.
For heroes only – The Navy SEAL trident
Prick Thomas Barnhart also must repay $11,098 in veteran’s benefits that he wasn't entitled to receive.
“He was passing himself off as a member of SEAL Team 1 with five Purple Hearts and a nomination for the Medal of Honor.”
Not Enough Punishment for Stolen Valor
It makes me sick that a 69 year old asswipe William Lawson was caught posing as a major general and only got probation from a hippie judge:
Scumbag Bill Lawson (right) disgracing the Marine Corps by pretending to be a hero general
I want to see the Stolen Valor Act amended to include mandatory prison time, no mercy for creeps.
When George Washington created the purple heart, he specifically stated:
“Should any who are not entitled to these honors have the insolence to assume the badges of them they shall be severely punished" – George Washington
A year is jail is not enough, if you ask me.
I hope he drops the soap in the shower . . .
