"Fox News not withdrawing that story has drove me nutty", Don Shipley, a retired SEAL who tracks down and exposes bogus military service claims and was the first to obtain official records disputing Garofalo's story, told the Navy Times.
Fox reporter Bryan Llenas called Garofalo "a hero" and "a tough, tough man". Garofalo also showed off his Purple Heart and other medals from his time as a Navy SEAL in the Vietnam War. "He was awarded 22 commendations, including two Purple Hearts".
During the segment, Garofalo talked about his time in Vietnam serving as a Navy SEAL.
"As soon as I heard that, red flags went straight up", Shipley said, adding that there were less than 300 SEALs who had served in Vietnam and that it was the "No. 1 fake claim" imposters used.
Fox also issued a lengthy statement, claiming it hadn't investigated Garofalo's military past before the segment aired because he claimed it was "covert". He served in the Navy in the '60s, but didn't see combat and his farthest deployment was Spain.

"The man woke something up in me", said 72-year-old John Garofalo from his warmly-lit workshop as B-roll showed him carefully carving stars into the giant sheet of glass.

The sculpture impressed the hosts so much that one of them even said, "God bless John Garofalo".
His sole decoration was a National Defense Service Medal, which is awarded to any service member who serves honorably during a "national emergency", including during the Vietnam War.
"You are a hero but like most heroes, you don't like to hear that", Llenas told Garofalo. "We certainly hope the president is listening".

"It got bigger and bigger", he said.
"He could have gotten away with it then, but now the internet has caught up to him", Shipley said.
