SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A Marine Corps vet who served his country in combat says he was attacked by someone who believed he was lying about his military service.

It happened over the weekend at The Long Shot, an Arden-area bar. Michael Delfin says the man was looking for a fight, saying Delfin had never served.
He says he was jumped by the first man and one of his friends. Delfin’s tibia is broken, and his jaw might be too.

As for the claim of stolen valor, his service was very real.

“I did over 12 years in the Marine Corps; I was a tracker and I was in combat in 2004 in Fallujah,” he said.
