Jason E. Romain, 43, was sentenced Thursday to almost two years probation for pretending to be a decorated Air Force combat veteran.Romain had joined the Air Force in 1986, but he served only five weeks before being handed a medical discharge because he had bad feet, court documents said.

Later, Romain apparently changed his discharge papers to show that he had served four years and was honorably discharged with the rank of sergeant.Among the badges and ribbons he claimed to have earned were the diver's badge, parachutist's badge and Grenada campaign ribbon.
When Romain marched in veterans' events, he wore the Silver Star, Purple Heart, Airman's Medal and a host of other recognitions such as the Antarctic Service ribbon, Kuwait Liberation ribbon and military training instructor ribbon, court papers said.Romain had a collection also of unauthorized law enforcement badges including an Air Force security forces badge.
Investigators noted that to a trained eye, it would have been obvious that Romain wore his medals and ribbons in the wrong order.
Romain used his fake discharge papers for tax breaks and in 1999 to qualify for veterans preferences when he applied for and got a job Philadelphia as security officer with the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Philadelphia, the court documents said.
In August, Romain pleaded guilty to illegally wearing medals, altering his discharge certificate and making false statements.As part of the plea agreement, Romain wrote apologies to the Air Force Pararescue Association and Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2071 in Franklinville, N.J., where Romain had been a member.
