Texas Man Fakes Credentials, Joins Army

In an extreme example of stolen valor, a Texas man has faked his way into an Army reserve unit as an NCO.

A Texas man with no military experience managed to trick the Army into letting him enter a reserve unit as a noncommissioned officer earlier this year, putting an untrained soldier in a leadership position in a time of war, an Associated Press investigation has found.

The article also notes he claimed awards that were not legit.
