Professed Medal of Honor recipient is doubted

BY R. NORMAN MOODY
FLORIDA TODAY

Federal agents said a 62-year-old Palm Bay man falsely claimed to have received the Medal of Honor, the nation's highest military decoration.

Gary B. Amster pleaded not guilty Thursday in U.S. District Court in Tampa to charges that he knowingly and willfully falsely represented himself verbally and in writing to have received the Medal of Honor.

The Stolen Valor Act, under which Amster was charged, is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by one year in prison and a $100,000 fine.

What a sorry cock sucker. How do people like that live with themselves. It takes a sick son of a bitch to try and take recognition for something they didn't earn.

Very true. A lot of people equate this with wearing a sweatshirt or cap with a football team logo on it and not being a member of the team. I hate a lot of people.
