Howdy Charles;

I'm not sure what you mean by a "military certificate". The most important one would be the DD-214 (discharge paper) because it entitles the individual to Federal benefits. I don't think that it is a crime to be in possession of military documents (blank or otherwise) unless an attempt has been made to falsify them for the purpose of defrauding somebody else. You can check that by contacting the Judge Advocate General Corps at http://www.jagcnet.army.mil/ or the U.S. Department of Justice at http://www.usdoj.gov/ .

With the sole exception of the Medal of Honor, it is possible for anyone to legally purchase medals and badges which conform to U.S. Government standards. It is illegal, however, to claim that the medal was awarded to the bearer when, in fact, it wasn't.

Most of the websites that you are referring to cater to real veterans (or their families) who are merely trying to replace genuine awards and decorations which were either lost, destroyed, or stolen. Wannabees are pretty rare and are easily detected by real veterans.
