Is what Blumenthal said illegal?

Senator Hatch has proposed legislation to deem it so.

People who falsely claim to have served in combat in the U.S. Armed Forces could wind up in jail and pay a stiff fine, under an amendment introduced today by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah).

If passed by Congress, the Hatch amendment to the Defense Supplemental Bill (H.R. 4899) would make false statements regarding participation in U.S. combat operations a misdemeanor, punishable by up to six months in jail and/or a fine.
