A former Infantryman from the 101st Airborne Division stopped a man at a shopping mall wearing an Army Ranger uniform that had some noticeable issues. The veteran, Ryan Berk, called the alleged Ranger over and blasted him with questions about what he referred to as a ‘fake’ uniform. The man posing as a combat Ranger wore a nameplate that read ‘Yetman.’
Via the Daily Caller:
“Hey sir, my son would like to meet you,” says Berk, using the introduction as a ploy to confront Yetman. “He really admires guys in the Army.”
Yetman introduces himself as Sean.
Berk then begins peppering Yetman with a barrage of questions about inconsistencies on his uniform.
Berk points out that Yetman has three CIBs (Combat Infantry Badges), which he claims he received in Afghanistan. Berk points out that you have to be in three campaigns to receive three CIBs. Yetman says he received them during different tours, but Berk has none of that saying “no matter how many [tours] you do, you can only get one.”
Berk then goes on to ask Yetman why he’s missing a combat patch, and points out that the flag on his sleeve is placed too low.
Finally, Berk had enough of the charade, yelling loudly in the middle of the mall that Yetman is “full of s*** wearing a United States Army uniform.”
The group Stolen Valor who reports individuals falsely wearing military uniforms, speculates that the man may have been trying to get military discounts during his shopping trip.

What do you think? Is the man wearing a fake Army uniform? Did the veteran handle the incident in an appropriate manner?
