My friend knocked out some Marine in a bar took his jacket now being charged with stolen valor. What happens if they find out how he got it?
Is it like when you Assault officer in uniform? Doesn't matter it was fair fight my friends can prove with video also proves he didn't really start it punch wise he was talking a lot of trash tho. Isn't stolen valor a misdemeanor. Is there any such thing as Assault on military? Or is he just looking at simple Assault or disorderly conduct?

Your question is best answered by an attorney.

just the fact that he was fighting could get hirn in trouble

Aside from the questionable validity of 'stolen valor', in the case you describe, the charges would be ASSAULT.
Assault is a crime, no matter who the victim is.

stolen valor law requires material benefit resulting from false claims of military service. i doubt your friend could be convicted of that if all he did was steal the jacket, unless there's some brainless unqualified conservative judge on the bench, which is a non negligible possiblity
