That is why, as a proud co-sponsor of this legislation, I am pleased that the House of Representatives passed this important piece of legislation. The Stolen Valor Act of 2012 amends the federal criminal code to subject an individual, who with intent to obtain anything of value, knowingly makes a misrepresentation regarding his or her military service to a fine, imprisonment, or both.
