    Thanks to a buddy of mine...I've discovered yet another poser wishing he could wear Army green and be as bad ass as he thinks he is in his picture.




    Here's his Facebook page:

    It's time we introduce our friends who run the Stolen Valor campaign to Nathaniel Macdonald.

    This guy is an obvious fake. The airborne tab goes directly over the SF arrowhead patch, because it is part of the Distinctive Unit Insignia. Then the ranger and SF tabs go above them. Also, he's got the officers subdued branch insignia, the crossed arrowheads, worn on his chest, as if it were a qualification or combat badge. That's not authorized, but it is definitely something that a faux beret would do.

    1. Are those jump wings I see above a CIB?

    A pen. The ACUs have a pen pocket on the sleeve, just like flight suits. Believe it or not, the pen is authorized, as long as it isn't showing too much.

    Did a little digging on the net about this guy. And found out some interesting tidbits.

    That photo, look at the banner in the back. Says UASCIENCE.

    That is the University of Arizona Science and Technology located in Tucson Arizona.

    They have a local known verbal poser there who happens to go by the name Nathaniel MacDonald.

    Thou the FB link doesn't work any more as he's deleted it. Look at the name of the account in the URL. Its Nathaniel MacDonald.

    Now why do I call him a verbal poser?

    Well, he did serve. But as a Private in the National Guard - not an SF NCO. And he was discharged from the National Guard back around '10 or '11 for being AWOL. Reported on one site from others who have dwelt with him had a report from a Staff Sergeant at the National Guard where he was stationed in AZ - stated "MacDonald was nothing but trouble."

    Although the Stolen Valor Act was mostly struck down, there are still legal recourses that can be pursued against this poser. Reference United States Code. Title 18: CRIMES AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURE. CHAPTER 33: EMBLEMS, INSIGNIA, AND NAMES. Sec. 702 Uniform of armed forces and Public Health Service:


    702. Uniform of armed forces and Public Health Service
    Whoever, in any place within the jurisdiction of the United States or in the Canal Zone, without authority, wears the uniform or a distinctive part thereof or anything similar to a distinctive part of the uniform of any of the armed forces of the United States, Public Health Service or any auxiliary of such, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.
    (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 732; May 24, 1949, ch. 139, 15(a), 63 Stat. 91; Pub. L. 103322, title XXXIII, 330016(1)(E), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat.
    2146.)


    Now, if he used the uniform for any material gain, such as benefits, or even something as trivial as attending an event on a military discount, he has committed fraud.
