Like the metal SAS badge above his gongs. The force of e-bay is strong with this one.

Liberated from the "Stolen Valour" site........

Ironically, it is often the irresistible impulse to add medals and heroic accounts that prove the undoing of the faux warriors. Last month, Michael Patrick McManus was arrested after a veteran spotted him at the December party for Houston Mayor-elect Annise Parker. McManus was wearing an Army uniform supporting a virtually solid front of decorations, from parachute wings to the Purple Heart to two distinguished service crosses and other decorations. Most notable was a medal around his neck that appeared to make him a Commander of the British Empire.

....for it is he!

Did he . .

Mince around the room telling everyone he's a bonafide war hero
or
Be a crashing righteous bore telling everyone within earshot that he wore his clown uniform as a reminder to the remaining homosexual discrimination in Texas although everyone just thought he looked a knob

He should do time for the first.
He should do time for the second too!

I doubt he just wandered around the room making small talk looking like Audie Murphy's wingman

Big. Fucking. Deal. Gay man wears costume. Americans outraged. 1st Amendment conveniently forgotten in order to impress upon him a much less important rule.

Populist newspapers/websites claim he has 'stolen valor' (sic). From whom? Stealing is to take the property of another, or pass off something belonging to someone else, as their own.

Has he claimed to be someone else? Is he wearing medals that are the legal property of someone else? No? Then it's not stealing.

Really, who gives a fuck?

Yes, this piece of garbage is known. The event which he attended in the uniform of a Major General wearing unearned decorations took place in 2009. He is an openly gay man who thought it would be great to attend the victory party of some Texas lesbian who had won an election to be mayor. If he had attended wearing regular clothes I would have had no problem with it. I do have a problem though with him dressing up in a Major General's uniform and passing himself off as something he is not. He deserves whatever punishment the Feds choose to impose and if that includes jail time so be it. The first amendment to the U.S. Constitution should not be stretched to try to accommodate this masquerade as "free speech" (although some have already tried to do so.)

He was in the Army from 1984 to 1987 and was trained to be a military policeman so he should have known that dressing up in a fake Major General's uniform would have only ended in tears. He was separated from the Army in 1987 and given a General Discharge; the highest rank he attained in service was Private First Class (E-3). Here's a picture of his DA Form 2-1. It has been published already on the internet at least since 2010 so don't worry about any PERSEC issues, Name and shame. I have no use for knobs of this stripe who attempt to bring my beloved Army into disrepute.

He is wearing medals that he is not entitled to. They include medals for valo(u)r and despite your frothing, I'm wondering how being banned from doing this is somehow repressing his right to freedom of expression. He is pretending to be something he is not*.

Really, who gives a fuck?
Quite a few people, it seems, given the US made this a criminal act.








*awaits usual Pavlovian response from usual mouth-breathing usually civilians.

Nope, he was wearing medals he was not entitled to.

You know, back in the long, long ago.
