The great pretender
"A former Returned Services' Association president has been ordered not to visit his local club after appearing in court this morning.
Former Otaki RSA president Don Moselen appeared in Levin District Court charged with wearing medals he is not entitled to after donning three medals at Anzac Day services.
The medals were the New Zealand Operational Service Medal, The Vietnam Medal and the New Zealand General Service Medal..."
Name and shame is the right punishment for wannabes!
Even if you were a REMF like me*, your lack of trigger-time is nothing to be ashamed of. Your service shows you stood up to be counted and if you did your job well- that is ALL that matters.
Don't try to be something you were not.
