One Marine quizzed the man about his service record, while the other filmed him on his cellphone.
Initially the conversation was relatively friendly as the Marines asked the man about where he had served as well as other details about his military service.
But the man appears nervous when answering and not only identifies himself as a ‘sergeant major,’ but also a military policeman and a special forces operator.
As the Marines grow increasingly suspicious the atmosphere turns tense as they decide to call the guy out for not knowing the correct uniform code, reports LiveLeak.
Is he a fraud? U.S. marines confront 'fake sergeant major' in heated exchange after military funeral in Florida
Two U.S. Marines confronted a man who they accused of impersonating a military veteran at a funeral in Florida on Saturday
They suspected he was a fake because his uniform featured a mix of mismatched medals and ribbons
The man not only identifies himself as a ‘sergeant major,’ but also a military policeman and a special forces operator
'You know that’s called false valor? It is a federal crime for you to be wearing that uniform,' one of the Marines tells the alleged impersonator
The man quickly leaves, but never admits that he is a fraud
