Retired Navy senior chief petty officer Don Shipley was a Navy SEAL for almost 20 years. In 2008, he shifted retirement gears to searching for and exposing those who falsely claim military service. Shipley commented that Georgia is the highest state for Navy SEAL stolen valor. Fakes will wear uniforms and do speeches in order to convince others. One of the men that Shipley outed, Bob McDaniel, claimed to have been a part of Delta Force and served in the Navy. He used fake military service to market his self-defense classes.
