Can you get in trouble for lying to a SStg?

If you're a civilian and have nothing to do with the military? It's by no means a harmful lie, just a lie nonetheless.


I already said it

Update 2:

*SSgt, sorry I was typing fast. I did it to protect my friend, he kind of guilted me into it.

    A civilian has no obligation to be truthful to a staff sergeant or any other member of the service. The only exception is if you are enlisting in that branch of service, and even in that case your statements are based only on your written documents not "what you told the recruiter". Hope it is not a big fib.

    Trouble? If it was not harmful.... then nothing will come from it.

    However...if we realize or figure out you lied to will lose any respect we had for you.
