Chris Osman is an amazing designer, he does some awesome work with motorcycle’s, easily accessible bags, and other as sundries, by the way he was apart of Naval Special Warfare. Essentially he is a SEAL. (ret)
He has been taking to Instagram to call out people who are “Stealing Valor” Im going to piss off a few people here but its not hard to steal valor or as the new term comes “borrow valor” -coined by Havock Journal. Combat it is real real easy to have fish tails especially when it comes to the early days before we all had camera’s/helmet cams/ etc. It is when you refuse to come back to center, you refuse to say eh it docent matter how many fish we caught as long as we left better people”
Brandon Webb that he never fired a shot in anger in the war on terror, he hid behind the same award that was issued to the entire platoon. Those awards and commendations are considered “unit” citations. For those who are unaware, there are “Unit” Citations within the awards and commendations and there are personal awards/citations. Chris has pointed out that his “combat experience” and the basis is based SOLELY on a unit citation. As Chris says “Essentially every single person in the platoon got this citation” This is essentially a same citation that could be earned by a Seabee in Afghanistan. It does not insinuate combat. You call it implied valor, or even borrowed valor.
This is all stemming from a the release of his new book “Among Hero’s” that oddly enough was released on Memorial Day Weekend. The book recalls a close friendship with eight service members who later went on and were killed in battle. It seemed like a good idea at the time, however; at time of print brandon has made zero mention of proceeds going to them. Making you believe that he is going to profit off the loss of SOF widows grief. Anonymous calls were made to various stops of the book signings that heading warning that trouble was brewing, these warnings were not headed and not trouble has come: Hello Trouble…
