Stolen Valour is NOT a victimless crime.
Regrettably, wearing fake medals and insignia is viewed by some to be a victimless crime however, the reprehensible actions of military imposters is offensive and disrespectful to our wounded and fallen and to their service to Canada.
SVC is an independent, self-funded, all volunteer group of Canadian Forces veterans with well over a 100 years of combined service. Our military experience has taught us how to quickly identify uniform medallic issues and anomalies
Through the use of open source research including websites, newspaper articles, photographic images, searchable data bases of medal recipients and extracts from online military documents in Canada, the UK and the US we can determine whether an individual is in contravention of laws, rules and/or regulations, and/or the legitimacy of any public claims being made.
