Stolen Valor: Watch This 19 Year Old “Soldier” Say He Was “Drafted” At 16

This is just painful to watch. Watch this ridiculous attempt by a civilian to convince a service member that he served in the military. Not only is it clear that he never served, it seems as if he never even did an ounce of research to back up his claims.

From claiming he was “drafted” two weeks after turning 16 to saying he went to basic training at non-existent bases in Florida this man tries it all.

He also claims he was shot in a friendly fire incident. He claims he would still be serving if he wasn’t shot in the knee. His imaginary career was over before it ever started.

The icing on the cake? He claims that he can’t stand it when people lie about serving in the military.

Eventually the service member calls out the guy. The guy doesn’t even really try to dispute things when he gets called out. Then tells the service member that he “wouldn’t understand.”

The guy even claims that his dad lied to him growing up about being in the military and says he doesn’t know technical terms.
