Distinguished cross medals, special unit citation, various service ribbons, honorary badges and a man in a military uniform. Who would not be thrilled to pay their respects and honor a soldier who has devoted his life and service for the nation? However, would you still shake his hand and give him a standing ovation once you find out he’s nothing but a fraud?!
As bad as it sounds, a man who seemed to be familiar with veterans and military procedures has busted a fake lieutenant at the Baltimore International Airport as reported by Guardian of Valor! Uh oh! Stolen Valor strikes again!
The mix up all began when a supporter (perhaps a veteran himself) approached an alleged Commissioned Officer in uniform. Things started to get more confusing when the soldier was unable to address at least the basic questions and the stories behind the badges forcing him to present an ID that identifies him as 1st Lieutenant Michael Cipriani.
Watch the video:
When the video went viral online. The shameless impostor in the video who turned out to be a woman named Kelsie Hoover, stepped into the limelight and explained that she was filming a video for their class at Baylor University. Furthermore, she mentioned that she simply borrowed the uniform and ID from the real owner, 1st Lt. Michael Cipriani who happens to be her brother. Soon enough, Hoover’s brother, the real 1st Lt. Michael Cipriani stepped up and emphasized that he only gave her permission to wear the uniform for still shots and not to wear it in public impersonating an officer. Since then, Hoover held responsibility and apologized saying she didn’t know it was seriously against the law.
However, the impersonation did not only end there. Another tip came forward stating that Hoover is really not a student at the university where she claims to belong to and is only pretending to be an injured officer with a wheelchair to obtain sympathy and money from the public. Good thing her secret has already been revealed.
Under the Stolen Valor Act of 2013, a crime is committed if a person fraudulently claims to have received any of a series of particular military decorations with the purpose of obtaining money, property, or other tangible benefit after convincing their victim that they have indeed received the awards.

When This Funny Husband Orders at a Starbucks Drive-thru. The RESULT was Quite Hilarious!
This guy must be a fun guy to be married to. I love his sense of humour.
Sense of humor is definitely a key factor in maintaining a healthy relationship. This proves true for a married couple who took a footage of themselves as they order at a Starbucks drive-thru. The husband was the star of the video, as he imitated Karl Childers from the movie Sling Blade. With a very funny voice, the husband started ordering bizarre food items and posing ridiculous demands to the employee. The wife was obviously amused, as she snorted in laughter, and plastered an immaculate grin on her face throughout the video. She was trying so hard to contain her laughter, but the husband was just too hilarious to ignore!
We wanted you to have a good laugh. So please do watch the video below, and tell us what you think about this feel-good video.

These Daredevil Divers Swam With White Sharks And Caught It On Video
Awesome footage. I stopped breathing every few seconds,
Extreme athletes, Roberta Mancino and Mark Healey made a short documentary featuring their love for the ocean, and their fascinating abilities to explore the depths of the ocean by staying in the water for too long. If holding their breaths for five minutes is not mesmerizing enough, watch how these marine life enthusiasts swim in the company of tiger sharks, as if it is the most normal thing to do.
The footage was taken using a Go Pro, which was able to capture the unbelievable beauty of the under water world.
