When former United States Army combat medic Garrett Goodwin discovered a guy on a Tampa, Florida street trying to coax money out of people by wearing a U.S. military uniform he, naturally, asked him what branch he was in.

After the man replied with “special forces, so top secret not even the VA knows about it” — he knew he had a job to do.

He had to get him to stop making a mockery of the uniform that his “brothers died in”.

So, he did. And he wasn’t taking “no” for an answer.

Watch the video above and see how the situation escalates as Goodwin gets more and more adamant that the faker abruptly quit his hurtful masquerade.
