You are nitpicking again.<quoted text>
Hummm, you got a good fearless leader there at IAVA. I would also like to point out that he was NOT promoted to captain in spite of being in eight years. Promotion from AUS 2LT to AUS 1LT is semi-automatic at 24 months and promotion to AUS CPT is about 90% except in times of war when it is almost 100%. He had to piss off someone!!!
From Wiki: Bronze Star and Special Forces patch controversy 
On July 13, 2012, three days after Rieckhoff publicly advocated for a revised Stolen Valor Act, the military blog This Ain't Hell uncovered a 2004 Amherst Magazine interview of Rieckhoff which included a photograph of him in uniform wearing a Bronze Star Medal and a United States Army Special Forces unit patch.
According to Stars and Stripes, in response to the allegation that he wore a medal he had not been awarded, Rieckhoff "defended the medal as a paperwork mistake" and explained that he "bought his Bronze Star after being told he had earned the medal, but hasn't worn it since that interview."
Look in your own backyard how many Chicken Hawk Coward Republicans got deferments for Vietnam.
