Stolen Valor Video: Fake Marine Mocks Real Marine When Called A Liar

In this stolen valor video, a fake Marine is caught on camera by real Marine telling lies about his deployment and answering questions about his service incorrectly.

After hearing a store clerk brag about his deployment, a customer in a Fresno convenience store began to question him about his story. That customer, a Marine himself, knew that the store clerk's story was riddled with inaccuracies.

Dave Kind, the Marine who filmed the stolen valor interaction with the Circle K store clerk, asked questions about where he was deployed and his battalion’s nickname — questions that the clerk either did not answer or seemed to struggle to answer. Kind asked “which village in Afghanistan” the clerk said he was deployed to, but the clerk said he couldn’t remember.

Before Kind called out the store clerk, the clerk said he was “not a Hollywood Marine” but said he went to boot camp in San Diego — not Paris Island, S.C. The clerk then inaccurately confirmed multiple times that “Hollywood Marines” — the name given to Marines trained at San Diego — are from Paris Island.

“Dude, you were not a Marine,” Kind eventually said. “I know you’re not a Marine. I was in the Marine Corps for five years.”

The store clerk laughed off Kind’s accusations and mocked him when he tried to ask more questions.

According to KMPH-TV, the Circle K store manager confirmed that the store clerk is no longer an employee but defended the young man as just joking around.

I went to boot camp is 1983, I am 51 years old now I still remember the names of my Drill instructors my primary and secondary MOS my unit what it was called and it was something I will never forget. I never went to war and would never lie about that.this dude should get his ass kicked. my future son in law was awarded a purple heart for service in Afghanistan. he survived an IUD attack on his humvee . I could never fill his shoes nor would I claim something I did not do. I think this should be a crime. because of a curved spine the military doctors said I would not make it through boot camp so would not let me join the regular army so I found a way in though the national guards and went to boot camp at Ft. Benin Ga. B/4/2 I was proud to serve my country and this action by this person discus me. B/4/2 Night Fighters my boot camp unit, 1/249 Infantry TLAT my NoGo unit primary MOS 11H secondary MOS 11B. to all the REAL Vets out there, Thank You and keep calling out the ones that lie about it
