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.

Shocking revelations.

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.

What are your opinions regarding this kind of behavior? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below and be sure to SHARE video on Facebook.
