TWITTER USER PRETENDING TO BE MEDAL of HONOR RECIPIENT STAFF SGT SALVATORE GIUNTA
November 16th, 2010
Earlier today, Staff Sergeant Salvatore Giunta was awarded the nation`s highest medal for valor – the Medal of Honor.
Meanwhile, someone has been impersonating him on Twitter since mid September using @salvatoregiunta.
The imposter posted a message hours earlier saying: `Thank you all so much for your kind words and support. Received the Medal of Honor from President Obama today.. it still feels like a dream`.
According to @USARMY, the Army`s official Twitter account (which is verified), @salvatoregiunta isn`t legit.
Everybody here understands the STORMBRINGER policy when it comes to phoney wannabe impersonators, and those who would dishonor the things which we hold sacred.
We find this loser, and then we shame him to death.
