And it’s something LONG overdue, too. The website is at Report Stolen Valor.org
AMVETS’ intent as a leading veterans advocacy group is to protect the valor and honor of our true American heroes and the integrity of their hard-earned awards. ReportStolenValor.org is a new public awareness campaign initiated by concerned veterans to safeguard our proud culture and the values of our community. We accomplish this by presenting an accurate and reliable tool to educate concerned citizens about the Stolen Valor Act of 2005 and help facilitate the reporting of suspected Stolen Valor offenders to federal authorities and the news media.
At launch, the beta site will provide links to assist citizens in contacting their local television network affiliates. Eventually, ReportStolenValor.org will provide a detailed and comprehensive database of investigative journalists from television, print and online mediums.
ReportStolenValor.org also provides a link to the Military Times Hall of Valor, a comprehensive database of more than 26,000 military awards for valor. The database, painstakingly researched by historian Doug Sterner of www.homeofheroes.com, is the most complete resource of its kind anywhere. The database is easily searchable by servicemember, award, conflict and keyword.
ReportStolenValor.org will also serve to highlight AMVETS’ ongoing and vigorous support of related current and future legislation including H.R. 666: Military Valor Roll of Honor Act.
Go Get “Em, AmVets!
