Reaction was swift and strong to the U.S. Supreme Courts ruling, striking down the "Stolen Valor Act," that would punish people trying to claim they are legitimate recipients of military medals.  Local veteran's advocate Dick Tobiason says there has been thousands of instances where people, some of them high profile, made claims of military service and honors they did not deserve.  "People who do this generally are people who are envious, who have low self esteem and who want to pawn themselves off as heroes to an unsuspecting public.  There is not database for which anybody can challenge these people, the author of the "Stolen Valor Act" is a dear friend of mine, and he and his wife started this whole thing 4-5  years ago, and have exposed hundreds, if not thousands of impostors. Now all their work is in vain."  Tobiason says that's it's shameful that the nation's highest court does not see fit to honor those who have given their life and served this nation, by  striking down the Act, citing the First Amendment of "Free Speech."  He says he does not know what the next move will be, but he hopes that somehow this problem can be stopped.
