    1. If you were born after 1960 and want to learn about the war in Vietnam read this book first. First it offers up some basic war statistics. And throughout the book it points out books written by total phonies about their war experience. In general the book is about men who claim combat experience but have no military record to back their claims. Best story in the book is a commander of a Washington state vfw who did serve in the Vietnam war. Good. But for the north. Not so good.


    2. Stolen Valor is one book that every Vietnam veteran should read. We read or hear much about the false heroes and veterans claiming honors that they never earned. Stolen Valor names names and backs up the uncovering of these honor thieves with facts. Real veterans don't advertise their deeds and claim unbelievable acts of heroism. They don't need to. One very well written book and well researched! I recommend it to everyone. It belongs as a valuable piece of history.


    3. Books a bit of a slog but did infuriate me oh so that there's a bunch of soulless fucktards parading around towns with gumball medals and costume shop uniforms and getting applause and or money/jobs for their supposed military heroics. My grandfather flew motherfucking planes in WW2 and never spoke about it, a true fucking hero. These dickriders sully the name of the good men and women that wear the uniform.


    4. A must read for anyone truly interested in discovering what the Vietnam War has done to this country. Exhaustively researched.



    5. Every time I opened this book it fell to an even worse page than the last minorities aren't really oppressed gay veterans don't really exist PTSD isn't real Agent Orange is actually all a mytheverything serves to make the author's point stronger: an uncritical acceptance of the Vietnam War as the right thing for America, not to mention the perpetuation of everything right-wing. The author has a personal vendetta against any veteran who disagrees with him, and it makes it obvious how flaws his ar [...]


    6. One of the most interesting books I can say I have ever read. His perspective on the Vietnam war is one that is not taught in school and one that makes the reader question the stigma surrounding that controversial conflict and its veterans. Armed with facts, figures, and a plethora of examples, Burkett tears apart the stereotypical idea of a Vietnam veteran as the disheveled alcoholics wearing tattered fatigues with an assortment of erratically-placed pins and medals. Burkett shows the truth abo [...]


    7. This book is well worth the long time it takes to read. The research details how media hype created the false stereotype of Vietnam veterans as troubled, drug addicted lost souls, while statistics actually show that the vast majority of Vietnam veterans honorably served our country and continue to be productive members of society. The authors shine the spotlight on and call out those who either tarnish the reputation of Vietnam veterans or try to profit by falsely claiming to have served.The boo [...]


    8. A great read for anyone in the business of treating veterans. It can get a bit tedious at times since it's so well-researched, but it tells a very important perspective and teaches us to not be so easily duped by the stories we hear. Given that people like me signed up to serve veterans and give back, we want to make sure the true heroes are getting what they deserve and not having it stolen by phonies.


    9. Dry as a bone, but informative and I'm glad I read it. I'ts just despictable how bold these liars are. Eventually they even believe the lies they're spewing. What's even more disturbing is that it is now at epidemic proportions and disrespecting every honorable veteran and active duty out there. These liars should be made to wear a giant letter A on their chest for the rest of their lives - stands for A-hole.


    10. excellent read & shows what poor research/verification our TV news & press does, as well as how lazy, selfish they are. If one wants a realistic understanding of Vietnam, PTSD, the VA hospitals, Vets claims etc this is a must read. Wish I had read it years ago. Really feel deceived! It just might even enlighten you on family members. Should be required reading in school!


    11. Recommended to me by one of my interviewees, and got it through ILL at APL. This was a ridiculously well-researched book that will help me in my upcoming interviews with Vietnam veterans. While a bit repetitive, it is thorough and covers many preconceived notions that average citizens (especially younger Americans) may have of the Vietnam 'veterans' that we "see" on a regular basis.


    12. I was really happy to read this book. It gave me a brand new look at the Vietnam war and the people who served. Things that were said to me in the past by Vietnam veterans now makes a lot of sense that due to popular misconceptions did not before. Why people tell those lies and get away with it is a disgrace. This is a must read for anyone passionate about truth and historical knowledge.


    13. I never could have imagined that there were so many Viet Nam fakers. This big give you the real picture without pulling any punches.


    14. I must read for anyone that it interested in seeing insight into the VA system and those that choose to manipulate it and the heroism of real war heroes.


    15. if you think you know about the Vietnam War and it's veterans you are wrong. This will set you straight and depress you with all the stories of fakers.
