Over the last few decades, American servicemen and women have risked their lives for their country in places as far-flung as the Philippines, Germany, Afghanistan, Iraq, Vietnam and many, many more.
Their bravery and courage – oftentimes when facing seemingly insurmountable odds – is something we can all be proud of. They are the real role models. They are the heroes.
And they serve with humility, dignity and honor.
To wear the uniform of an American serviceman or woman is an honor bravely earned. That’s why the following video is all the more shocking … but not, as it turns out, for reasons you could ever possibly guess:
Bang to rights. End of story.
But wait! The plot thickens!
It turns out that the ‘guy’ in the video being called out for wearing a uniform that he has no right to wear is in fact the SISTER of ‘Michael Cipriani’!
Michael had not given his sister permission to use the ID you see at the end of the video.
That’s right! After the footage was posted to YouTube, a certain Kelsie Hoover approached the guys over at Guardian of Valor and informed them that she had borrowed her brother Michael’s ID for a college film project. Surprised to be questioned about her right to wear the uniform, she neglected to mention who she really was and caused a whole heap of trouble.
Her brother Michael and his wife later confirmed her story and Guardian of Valor backed them up.
Bizarre or what?
Kelsie has since made a full apology to the serving men and women of America.
The next time you make a movie, Kelsie, why not shoot a Western just to be on the safe side!
