Did Shia LaBeouf Steal Valor?

Shia LaBeouf was arrested late on July 8 in Savannah, Georgia, for drunken and disorderly conduct. Given the actor’s reputation, the charge isn’t super shocking. What’s new, however, is Shia’s claim — delivered while in police custody — that he served in the National Guard. Though LaBeouf did embed with a National Guard unit while researching his role in Fury, that’s a far cry from real service. In fact, it’s something like a high school JROTC cadet claiming to be an officer. But hey, Shia didn’t steal valor, he just borrowed a bit.

The U.S. Military Academy identified a cadet who has been missing since Friday evening as 20-year-old Kade Kurita.

A search began for Kurita after he failed to report for a scheduled military skills competition around 5:30pm on Friday. West Point officials said in the Tuesday press release that he is believed to still be nearby.

Russian and Turkish officials said a five-day U.S.-brokered truce had been extended for 150 hours, starting on midday on October 23, and that Kurdish militias would be required to clear out of a 30-kilometer buffer zone along the Turkish border.
