Dishonorable Valor 
By:  Rick Boxx
August 13, 2010

According to a front page feature in the Kansas City Star, many war heroes are frauds. POW Network has taken it on as their mission to investigate people who claim to have won awards for valor. Last year they investigated over 14,000 people claiming to be war heroes.

The article gave examples of people who have stolen stories of heroism from deceased veterans, claiming their medals and victories for themselves. Exaggerating claims in life is bad enough, but to take credit for heroics of men who served our country with honor is repulsive.

Jesus taught in Matthew 23:12, "For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted."

God loves you for who you are, you don't need to pretend to be someone else.
