Medal by medal, Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard's 'stolen valor' is laid bare - 2020-11-07
On Wednesday, longtime reader PickAnotherID began taking apart L. Ron Hubbard's military service decorations like no one ever has.
A 20-year military veteran, PickAnotherID was frustrated not only by Hubbard's "stolen valor," but also the incomplete and incorrect criticisms of the medals and ribbons that the Church of Scientology claimed were earned by the Scientology founder.
In the first part, Pick went over the Navy marksmanship awards, which have caused a lot of confusion over the years. And now, he's on to the medals and ribbons that Scientology claimed for Hubbard when it delivered a photo of them to New Yorker writer Lawrence Wright for his 2011 feature story, "The Apostate."
