No one likes Fakes and Liars and
That's Bindo Grasso To a Tee.
Two California cities, Orcutt and Guadalupe
unwittingly honored Stolen Valor October 5, 2019.
Why cities donít check the veteran to make sure they
are legit is a problem.
Bando Grasso was buried October 5, 2019 as a hero by
these two cities. They donít know that Grasso never
served one day in combat in WWII. Grasso was a
Paratrooper but he was never in the line of fire.
Bindo Grasso was a member of the 515th Parachute
Infantry Regiment Co B part of the 13th Airborne
Division. The 515th went overseas January 25, 1945
and got to France Feb 10, 1945.
The 13th Airborne
Division was in reserve for the rest of the war and
never got into battle.
his Separation Papers (53-55) and it matches up
even his Shadow Box.
The 515th then went back to the States in August of
1945 as they were going to be heading to Japan.
After the bombs that made it moot.
Grasso has been telling people for years it seems
that he was in Normandy. He was not as he was in the
United States until the end of January 1945 as
mentioned above according to the records. Grasso
claimed to have been a Pathfinder in Normandy and
told people for years that he was in the iconic
photo of Paratroopers with Eisenhower just before
the jump into Normandy. Those are both lies.
In interviews with
Grasso he said he was in the 515th and was in
Normandy. The 515th was never part of the 101st
Abn Div, and the 515th was never in Normandy.
The paper Santa Maria Times has a picture of two
paratroopers and said that the one with
Grasso was a Pathfinder and that the picture was
taken in France. No, it was taken in Camp Mackall,
North Carolina in 1944.
When you look at Grasso shadow box with his awards
you can see a few things. The first thing that
stands out is that he didn't have the Combat
Infantryman Badge (CIB). The second is that he has
Service Stars. Grasso didnít have the Bronze Star
Medal either because he didnít have a CIB.
The reason he doesn't have the CIB? The 515th Prcht
Inf was never in combat. The two
Bronze Service Stars are for a unit that was in the Theater
of Operation but they didnít have to be in combat to
receive it. The 515th was in two different Theater
of Operations, Rhineland February 8, 1945 to 21
March 1945 and Central Europe March 22, 1945 to May
8, 1945 (the end of the European War).
I know that Grasso friends will be upset as hell
and try to take it out on the messenger. These are
people with issues that I canít fix as Iím not a
shrink and people who get bent over a fake hero need
help. They will piss and moan and say the records
were poor, the records are wrong etc. They donít
want to admit they were screwed over for years by
There is no doubt that he was in Co B of the
515th Parachute Infantry Regiment during WWII. This
comes from the 13th Abn Div Yearbook along with his
53-55 Discharge. Even his address is in there
in both the Yearbook
and his 53-55.
Iím run into this before and Iím sure will again.
Liars canít help but lie, itís in their blood.
This is an unusual one in that someone has threatened to have me arrested for using
documentation. That is a first.
This is an
addition due to the people in Bindo's town.
They refuse to believe that he was not in Normandy.
One of the town's people has even go so far as to
say they have called the local Sherriff. They
said that the document for the 53-55 is fake and
The 53-55 Separation Paperwork came from NARA in
St. Louis. Even better they used a raised seal
from NARA. If some want to say that the
documents are fake then that means that the Army and
NARA have faked the document. It doesn't work
like that in the real world.
Here is an even large picture of that section.
(just click on it so see the larger image)
Stolen Valor is Stolen Valor. If they still
want to support that, that's their right to dishonor
the 400,000 American who died in WWII. Most
people after reading the article and look at the
documentation will realize that he wasn't in
Normandy or even in combat in WWII.
