Oh dear, and that's just regarding the two purple hearts claimed out some 27 the old windbag bragged about, a couple of which don't even exist!
Though this subject is old, dusty, and previously thrashed to death on other threads, it is still interesting, and one of the better studies of Hubbard's outrageous military claims is HERE

Oh, and dear IM, any active OSA do not give a shit about the truth, or they wouldn't be OSA to begin with, or scientologists for that matter
'Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. I am not afraid.'

So..... I dunno much about the Stolen Valor law, and LRH is too dead to prosecute. But can the Co$ be prosecuted? I've only heard about the law due to the case currently before the US Supreme Court and I don't really know much about the facts. I just remember thinking that the law (as distilled by the nightly news) seemed problematic. Nevertheless, if the Co$ can get in trouble for it.....
I will have time to research it in the near future, but if anyone knows about it I'd like to hear an opinion.
Bummer! But thanks for the response!
I'll often point out things like this to the people at my local org (though I pace myself and try to limit it to 1 criticism per visit lol), but they like me (and probably my money but I only buy books and lectures so I'm guessing its more that they like me lol) Anyway, I got invited to an LHR birthday party where we watched a video of the official one, which looked like it took quite a while and a decent amount of money to produce (it was also a sales pitch for the new Ron books after all), and there were SSSSOOO many times I found myself biting my tongue and telling myself "it's his birthday - I can let it slide this one day of the year"
