A man who has been begging for money/food for years in my neighborhood

Resolved Question:

A man who has been begging for money/food for years in my neighborhood always claims he is a Viet Nam Vet. My "gut" tell me he is not. When I confront him from some ID or proof he had none. Is one who is street beggar and claims to be a Viet Nam vet required to wear some form of ID around their neck. I hope does not sound foolish, but I am 66 and lost many dear High Schools friends in this War and if my suspicions are correct I will do whatever possible to removed him. Thank you and thank you for your Service.

Thank you for using JustAnswer!

The answer to your question "Is one who is street beggar and claims to be a Viet Nam vet required to wear some form of ID around their neck." is No. The law does not require that.

Panhandling is against the law in many communities. You can report his activities to local law enforcement for follow-up.
