I think being pulled off the line and told to straighten up is more than enough.
Stolen Valor act was overturned in 2012 by the SCOTUS. A new law prohibiting one from profiting from wearing unearned medals was signed into law by Obama in 2013. Or so the internets leads me to believe.

Federal appeals court rules wearing unearned military medals is free speech.
