Curtis Hertel Slammed by Michigan Veterans for ‘Stolen Valor’

This morning, Fox News reports that a group of Michigan veterans are calling on Democrat Curtis Hertel Jr. to apologize for “stolen valor” after he wore part of a U.S. Army-issued uniform during a Veterans Day event despite never serving in the military.

The letter, signed by 28 veterans, reads, “As you must be aware, wearing official military-issue attire, especially at a ceremony honoring those who have served, leaves the clear and unmistakable impression that you personally served in uniform…We respectfully request that you publicly apologize to all American veterans, in Michigan and elsewhere, and pledge not to repeat the offense.”

“Curtis Hertel disrespected veterans everywhere by donning a U.S. Army-issued jacket when speaking at an event honoring the brave men and women who served our country, while simultaneously promoting his own campaign,” said CLF Communications Director Courtney Parella. “Hertel should be ashamed of himself.”
