#1 Ya mean "Airborne Willie's" not a Navy SEAL? I'm dissappointed.

#6 Airborne Willie? Isn't he the guy who gets shot out of the cannon at the county fair?

#7 Just from a quick look at this fruit salad, he was in Berlin or Japan after WWII, in Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, and served in the Navy/and or Marine Crops and the Army. Twice wounded? Wow, what a fellow. Just another highly decorated military man for Obama....

#8 Who are these birds doing this for? Not for the right. They don't know enough or care enough to be able to put a consistent set of medals with their story. It's too easy to refute to be effective at impressing conservatives. Are they doing it for the left? I can't see how playing a phoney warrior gets them any points with people who simply hate the military. That only leaves one target for them to impress, themselves. Clumsy, stupid ego-tripping is my best guess as to what makes them do that. I say, give them a mirror and some lubricante and let them entertain themselve - in private.

#10 The male equivalent of a cat-horder. And about as tethered to reality. Instead of rotting dead cat corpses, they collect dishonor.

Man looks like a Boy Scout six weeks into his first psychotic break.

#13 you probably already have malware on your machine

1/ Use firefox, not IE.
2/ Install Spybot search and destroy to remove the malware.

#15 I am so flashing on to a book that came from my Grannie Jessie's shelves - one of the minor sub-plots concerned the unmasking of a fake veteran by a pair of small boys who were as keen on 'medal watching' as serious birders are on spotting exotic birds.
"Country Mouse" by Louise Andrews Kent. So, medal faking and/or inflation does have a bit of a history - and so does the joy of unmasking them.
It does appear that Mr. Williams is packing his resume... just a little bit.
Either that, or he's a modern version of Casca, the forever soldier.

#17 Why the heck isn't this guy out getting Bin Laden? He can end the WOT with just one look from his hero-like stare.
