Man gets six months in false medal case
The Army says a former command sergeant major at Walter Reed Army Medical Center is spending six month in prison for wearing unauthorized decorations and lying about his record.
Sgt. Maj. Stoney Crump was sentenced Wednesday at Fort McNair in Washington.
The Army says Crump pleaded guilty to 14 counts Tuesday.
Military newspaper Stars and Stripes reports that Crump was charged in July with wearing 11 unearned awards, including the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal with Arrowhead Device, the Presidential Unit Citation Award and the Senior Parachutist Badge.
The Army Times reports that Crump was the senior enlisted adviser to the Walter Reed brigade.
His sentence also includes reduction in rank to staff sergeant.
