STOLEN VALOR LAW
08/30/2017
Governor Wolf Announces Stolen Valor Law Protecting Benefits for Service Members, Veterans Now in Effect
Harrisburg, PA - Governor Tom Wolf today reminded Pennsylvanians that the stolen valor law, protecting benefits for Pennsylvania service members and veterans, is now in effect, approximately 60 days since it was signed in late June.
“It is our duty to be certain that benefits, resources, and job opportunities set aside solely for our service members and veterans remain as such and this law will help us do that,” Governor Wolf said. “This important law is now in effect, making it a crime to impersonate a service member, a veteran of the armed services, or a recipient of a service medal or decoration to gain access to those privileges set aside specifically for those who have served our country.
“Pennsylvania’s service members and veterans have served us bravely and selflessly and now it’s time that we support them in any way we can. The stolen valor law is one such way.”
Criminalized behavior associated with the law ranges from lying in order to receive veteran or health care benefits to fraudulently obtaining preference in a government contract or a job reserved for a service member or veteran.
“This is a critical step for Pennsylvania to protect the dignity and patriotism of our service members and veterans,” said Maj. Gen. Tony Carrelli, Pennsylvania’s adjutant general. “The recognition and benefit meant for our military and veterans will be better protected and preserved for those who sacrificed to earn these rights.”
