At a convocation event Wednesday at Jerry Falwell‘s Liberty University, an Army Infantry veteran noticed another military man in the arena and asked a few questions of the highly decorated man on camera.
Mark Joston introduced himself as a former Navy SEAL with four purple hearts and multiple other honors who also worked with the CIA’s “special operations division.” Patheos reports.

“There is no Mark Joston or “Josten” to be found on any list of Navy Cross recipients. However, there are three unidentified Navy SEALS who earned the Navy Cross during the global war on terrorism,” he wrote. “So we cross referenced his name with the Navy Silver Star recipients and there is also no Mark Joston or Josten.”
He said they “reached out to Don Shipley,” a former SEAL, who has made a name for himself by calling out fake SEALs on camera and he is investigating the matter.
