Sept. 14, 2012 - The U.S. government got a step closer to punishing those who lie about military service for profit when the House of Representatives passed a revamped version of the Stolen Valor Act Thursday.

The legislation, which will go on to a similar vote in the Senate, would make it illegal for anyone to "knowingly" misrepresent their service "with the intent to obtain anything of value." Under the Stolen Valor Act of 2011, offenders would be subject to fines and short prison sentences, some of which can be lengthened if the guilty party lied about serving in a combat zone, serving with a special operations contingent or winning the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation's highest military honor. read more>>>
