Really? When is this going
January of 2017 I ran across an American
Battle Monuments Commission Facebook Post. It
shows Helen Patton the granddaughter of General
George Patton at the Luxembourg American Cemetery
with a Robert Nobuo Izumi* laying a
wreath at General Patton's Gravesite.
I found that interesting because something didn't
seem right about the ABMC narrative that went along
with the picture.
I did some quick research
and posted to the ABMC website and sent a request to
the ABMC as well, as I wanting to know who had written
this fantasy story.
Wilson Shatzer responded to
that and said yes there was an error and it that they
would correct it. End of story at the time
except I just found out that the ABMC didn't change
it after all. Go figure the ABMC lies once
Well, yesterday December 19, 2018 I saw Nobuo R. Izumi on a Facebook Post. He has been feted for years in
Belgium for the annual Battle of the Bulge
Remembrances and they were unveiling a waxed figure
I then did some basic research 23 months after
the original ABMC error and spent about 30 minutes
and discovered the following about Nobuo R.
He was drafted and came into the Army August 3,
1944. Nobuo R. Izumi then spent the next
17 weeks in Basic Training at Camp Blanding,
Florida. He then went to Fort Benning, Georgia
and spent 4 weeks and became a Paratrooper.
If we do the math that means Nobuo R. Izumi
was in training in the USA for 21 weeks (not
counting furlough) which means the training ended in
February of 1945. So unless there was time
travel back then that means he wasn't at Bastogne
where he is celebrated every year.
Nobuo (Bob) R. Izumi left the States April 5,
1945. The only issue at the moment, was he
at Bastogne in December of 1944? The answer is no.
What concerns me more is that people take the
word of someone when all they had to do is to take a
few days to verify their story. That Patton's
granddaughter and the ABMC let the wreath ceremony
happen is shocking on the part of the ABMC. Of
ABMC has a habit of creating fantasy out of whole
How is it that the museum in the Bulge didn't
know that Nobuo R. Izumi wasn't even in the
European Theater during the Bulge?
Today while reading Facebook posts about Nobuo (Bob)
R. Izumi I saw that he had the comments section
turned off where I couldn't' comment.
I noticed in a lot of the pictures from last
night and today that someone named Stacey Hayashi
was with Izumi. I went to her page figuring I
could reach out to her to let her know that Nobuo (Bob)
R. Izumi wasn't in the Bulge. I then see
that my ability to comment is turned off for her
Remember the 75th Anniversary is coming up and
you know people don't want to do the basic work to
verify a veteran, especially for Normandy. This is an insult to the men
who fought, were wounded or killed in the Bulge when
other men were back in
Florida in Basic Training still.
If anyone thinks that this isn't Nobuo (Bob) R.
Izumi please look at
the interment records and the
WWII Service Compensation the Front Side and the
Back Side of the
Service Compensation tells the story. If
you look at the interment records it shows that
Nobuo Robert Izumi left the Camp and went to Iowa.
This connects to the 1949 Iowa WWII Service
Compensation which shows very clearly where and when
Nobuo (Bob) R. Izumi was during the Bulge.
Stolen Valor, the ultimate insult to the men and
women who have died for our country.
*(Nobuo Robert Izumi
tends to switch his first
names around with Robert/Bob with Nobuo as his
middle name at times just to let people know.)

And the Follow-up
Not a Clue
I received an early Christmas
present of sorts when word came down the pike that Bandoís (SUPER SECRET Facebook group) Trigger
Time was in a heated discussion about the Nobuo R.
Izumi (the Manoian of Bastogne) article Iíd just
published two days before.
Low and behold they werenít
just talking about my article but they actually had
a link to it! Will the world never ceases to
amaze? There were the usual whiners up front and
Jamie Garner and
There were some reasonable discussions as well which doesnít happen much on
Tripper Time anymore. Then
Stacey Hayashi came into Trigger Time and
proceeded to embarrass herself. Most people didnít
know of Stacey Hayashi before Thursday but we do
now. Stacey seems to be Izumiís handler along with
another person I didnít know, a Jeff DS (Salard). On Trigger
Time she first started by saying Morning Reports
have tons of errors. She was corrected ASAP by the
Stacey then decided to try and defame my reputation.
Defamation definition is as follows;
when someone's words end up
causing harm to your reputation or your
livelihood. In this case she called me unbalanced
and an old meenie/hateful person. She sounded like
a bitter middle aged woman at the age of 42. When
someone tries to defame someoneís reputation they
should have a reputation themselves first. More
about this in a few minutes.
by Stacey is right out of the Bandoís playbook.
Bando attacked a 4 Generation Gold Star Family and
called them crazy. Here is that article if you need
a refresher course;
because Bando couldnít get his way.
It shows that some people
really should have a handler themselves when they
post without thinking. The day before this meltdown
by Stacey I had been in contact with Tim Gray
about my latest article. I had just heard about
Stacey from all of the pics with Izumi while in
Bastogne. He said that he had a meeting coming up
with her the next week or so.
Then the next day Stacey shot
herself in the foot as the saying goes by trying to
hurt my feelings (which made me laugh at her
instead). I then discovered that
Tim had announced
a 2020 Memorial Day Documentary ďFighting For HIS
Country.Ē I of course figured out what the
meeting with Tim was in relation to Stacey.
I messaged Tim again and
gave him the lowdown on Staceyís bizarre post. Iím
sure that will be an interesting meeting when it
happens. Iíd called Izumi out in January of 2017 to
a lesser degree. Please check my article here if
Some more Stacey tidbits as
she think that someone is available to speak on a
Friday night just before Christmas? She expected someone to answer
their phone at a moments notice to talk with someone
they donít know? Stacey said she had someone named
Jeff DS call me on Friday. Well low and behold look
what showed up. Three calls in a row on Friday
night. The first one was 30 seconds of nothing.
second phone message started screaming like a 5
for the third phone message.
There was no number attached to
the three calls. That right there means I wonít
answer a call from someone with a blocked number. I
think most people take the same view. Secondly the
ranting from this
Jeff DS shows a few things. First he hides
his last name on FB and then he never identifies himself
on the three phone calls.
When reading Staceyís post to
Woodadge the way
Stacey phrases it she is calling Jeff DS ďunstableĒ
and hateful not me. I realize she was trying to
point it to me but her grammar is poor, so it looks
like it's Jeff DS she is calling out. The irony is
of course after listening to what Jeff DS said that
Stacey was subconsciously right the first time.
So to recap the Stacey and Jeff
DS timeline lets start with December 20, 2018 the
day the Nobuo R. Izumi article came out. Then on
December 22, 2018 the Trigger Time meltdown occurred.
I listened to the December 21, 2018 disturbing calls
from this Jeff DS. The only reason I know itís
him is because Stacey mentioned in her
Trigger Time post of December 22, 2018 that Jeff DS
had tried to call me.
The interesting point about
Jeff DS bizarre messages are that he said over and
over again why donít you (me) answer and produce
evidences. He canít be that bright because he
called and left that message on Friday December 21,
2018 and the documentation was already online in my
article. It seems he didnít read the article at
all, just went off on someone elseís say.
I also read a post from someone
named Peter Plank in the Trigger Time discussion
about Nobuo R. Izumi.
Plank stated that he had all Nobuo R. Izumi's
pertinent documentation and said if only Iíd reached out to him
none of this would have happened. In his post after
saying he had the proof that Izumi was in Bastogne,
Plank uses this for evidence; why didnít I talk with
the men who fought with him, wrote about him and people
who knew him. Guess what? That isnít evidence but
the documents in the article are.
Do you know what
Jeff DS and
have in common? Right, Nobuo R. Izumi. Figure it
out from there as the old saying goes.
These are just the most current
examples of what is happening in Europe with WWII
Veterans and their handlers. With the 75th
Anniversary coming up quick, Normandy and Bastogne better vet all of the Veterans they are bringing
over. If not, both in June and December of 2019 more
of the same will occur.
