Recent Supreme Court ruling says anyone is free to claim they were awarded Medal of Honor

 Jack Jacobs can proudly - and truthfully - say he was awarded the Medal of Honor for his valor in Vietnam. After a recent Supreme Court ruling, anyone else is free under the First Amendment to make the same claim, whether it's true or not.

Some military veterans say they consider the ruling a slap in the face. For Jacobs, though, it was the right decision. He said he wore the uniform to protect people's rights - even if he doesn't agree with how they exercise those rights.

The ruling was issued the same day as the high court's landmark decision upholding President Obama's signature health-care overhaul.
