Christopher Piro; phony wounded combat veteran

| July 27, 2016

Christopher Piro

Our friends at Guardian of Valor send us their work on this Christopher Piro fellow who was an Air Force veteran after nearly four years of service as a communications guy with service in Korea among other places. But I guess that didn’t give him the leg-up that he thought it would.

He began by convincing a US Senator that he had been wounded during his service in Afghanistan;

Piro claims Boozman letter

You can see at the GoV link that Piro altered that letter and used it as references for all kinds of stuff. But that wasn’t good enough either. He forged a letter supposedly from his Air Force supervisor to attest to his military derring-do, this time in Libya;

Christopher Piro claims1

Piro eventually parlayed his forged letters into an acceptance at Johns Hopkins University. But then, along comes GoV with their pesky FOIA requests;

Cristopher Piro DD214

From GoV;

According to PIRO’s official military records he did not serve 6 years in the USAF; there were no multiple deployments to Afghanistan. PIRO apparently served in Korea and Germany, however there is no confirmation that he was in a combat zone. Additionally there were no “selfless heroics”, no documented “Bronze Star with Valor device” and no record of him receiving a Purple Heart; and further there is no evidence that he received the Air Force Commendation Medal. PIRO forged all of the letters from Senator Boozman (excluding the one marked original; this letter was filled with the same lies…all told to the Senator by PIRO. The Senator was innocent in all of this and lied to by PIRO), all of the letters from professors, and all of the letters from a nonexistent Master Sergeant. PIRO even wrote a fictitious letter for a brother in arms to get into college; where PIRO claimed to be the NCOIC of the Special Operations unit. He even polished his skills in photoshop as he created all of the headers and footers from scratch. All to advance his hopeful career in politics and to further his acceptance into prestigious schools across the nation; most recently the University of Tennessee.

They say that Johns Hopkins canned his ass, too, because of his fraud. Four years in the Air Force and he exited as an E-3 Airman First Class. Even for the Air Force, that progression is a little slow.

      Christopher is my adopted cousin. He came into our family when he was 2 years old. His whole life he had behavior and extreme emotional problems. He was virbally and physically abusive to our (my) grandmother who was raising him at the time because his parents abandoned him. He was born addicted to drugs and taken away from his mother only to be raised by abusive grandparents then taken away from them and adopted by my aunt. He was on ADHD medication his whole childhood. He had a drug problem throughout high school. He was always in trouble! He went into the Air Force and still continued to get into trouble. I believe at 1 point he was even taken down in rank. He NEVER served in Afghanistan! And certainly never ever did anything to earn a Purple Heart! He sat behind a desk in S Korea and in his off time trained as an MMA fighter at the gym. He is a POG ( military personnel will know what that means) and never did a damn thing for our country other then be a body in a uniform! My husband is an actual combat veteran that has an actual deployment to Afghanistan. Where he was wounded Buy an RPG that hit his truck. He received a Combat Action Badge. He is an actual Hero! Christopher in an embarrassment and I thank God he is adopted! I just hope he gets the punishment that he deserves!

        Okay, Julie, but there is nothing wrong with being a desk jockey, or in the rear with the gear, or a fobbit, or whatever else crops up in the way of slang.

        The REAL issue is that he is lying about his service, not whether or not he had any.

      • Graybeard says:

        The truth is, without the desk jockeys and the POGs the guys in the front lines would be in a world of hurt.
        The drug abuse is sad – and it is a demon few can ever shake, and those who get clean have to fight it for the rest of their lives. One of the best Christians I know has been clean more than 20 years – and still dreads the call of the stuff.
        All we are down on him for here is the Stolen Valor. I hope he gets clean and stays clean – and am glad he did the job he did in the service.

      • Anne Martin says:

        Julie although most of your allegations are correct, please note that his biological grandparents were not abusive, nor was he taken from them. Simple fact checking, please before you slander good people one who has been gone for over 15 years.

  2. Poetrooper says:

    Let’s hope the Democrats don’t hear about this guy. They’ll be grooming him for high office. He’s definitely their idea of a war hero.

    Now if he’d just write one more letter:

    Advocating stricter gun control…

    • Poetrooper says:

      Y’know, the dude looks kinda Native American so he’s definitely got a place in the Democrat power structure. Let him get a two-year term as a state representative then a portion of one term as a U.S. senator and he’ll be just as prepared as Obama was plus having all that “heroic” military service. In other words the perfect Democrat presidential candidate:

      A Blumenkerrbama.

    What a maroon!

    Scrotum-sniffing taint-luster.

  6. jarhead says:

    Last sentence: “All to advance his hopeful career in politics”….Must have been reading Bill Clinton writings, no, Richard Nixon, no, Shillery. If your gonna make a living by lying to people, if sales won’t do it, politics will for sure. And don’t forget used car sales if nothing else works.

  7. Combat Historian says:

    This lying POS should apply for a job on the staff of senator “DICK” blumenthal, hopefully with one of them forged recommendation letters…

  8. HMCS(FMF) ret. says:

    Scrotum sniffing, taint tickling, manhole inspector first class.

    The Interwebs is forever Piro… and you shit all over your honorable service, fluffer.

  9. nbcguy54ACTUAL says:

    Piro the Zero – not a hero…

  11. Lurker Curt says:

    Maybe having somebody proof read your bullshit letters…I mean, “frist in…” C’mon, really?!?


  12. jarhead says:

    Piromaniac…..burning the bridges behind him with all his lies. Maybe kin to lying Clark Schreiber?

  13. Silentium Est Aureum says:

    What? Not even a good cookie?

    How Bernathian.

  14. Skippy says:

    Moron enjoy your Google Fame you’ve earned it

  15. 20thEB67 says:

    Low. Really low. Piro even penned a piece on SV and then turned around and claimed the valor of his own(Alleged)brother, a Marine who served and died with honor.

    I hate this guy.

  16. MCPO NYC USN Ret. ain't goin' no where says:

    Yeah a few Title 18 violations there. Forged instrument, unauthorized use of seals, possible, impersonation, Stolen Valor and considering the pattern here …could = a lot of trouble with Federal authorities.

    • Roh-Dog says:

      I won’t be holding my breath.
      Toothless Momma Fed ain’t really been as fastidious with SV as they ought to be. Hell, how many pedophiles,drug dealers, embezzlers, etc have claimed to be acclaimed?
      It should serve as a giant ‘come investigate me ’cause I’m about to do stupid’ blip on the FIBbie’s radar.
      To that point, this dude with that face, $100 says he’s a dime-drop away from a Statutory charge. Watch, wait. I have the premonition

  18. FatCircles0311 says:

    So basically he’s the perfect veteran democrat…

  19. streetsweeper says:

    And a douche nozzle…

  20. Green Thumb says:

    This dude looks like he is into full frontal male nudity.


    I wonder if the False Commander “Phony” Phil Monkress has already sent his taxpayer-funded limo to pick him up and bring him down to Merritt Island?

  21. Jim says:

    His DD214 is “doctored” as well or grossly inaccurate. The AFSC listed in block 11 “3D052” and the military schools for Airfield Management listed in block 14 are not compatible. USAF Airfield Managers are assigned a 1C7x1 AFSC.

  22. Jim says:

    He also would not have attended the 7 level Craftsman course as an E-3.

  23. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    This guy is an amateur asshole with aspirations of going pro.

  24. Midnightguy says:

    Amazing how I thought “Democrat” when I began reading of this. Another fake, entitled wanna be.

  25. SmallD says:

    The user who says he was adopted could be correct. I was stationed with him in S. Korea, and we trained MMA together. At work he would have tantrums and always thought people were out to get him. He was decent at BJJ/grappling but he was always going hard like he was trying to win the damn belt, so I would try to avoid rolling with him. He had a fiancé at the time and was banging some other girls, he then went to Germany and got married but I’m not sure that lasted too long because his FB page had him single shortly there after. He is no longer on there, I guess once this story got out he dipped out. Oh yeah, he would always talk about playing football in college before he joined the USAF, but I heard he wasn’t that great on our flag football team, always trying to be QB and making up excuses when we lost. I noticed he got into some college/was writing papers on his FB page, and I wondered how he was doing it all, I always knew he was a good shit talker, but DAMN!! hahaha

  26. SmallD says:

    Oh yeah, he got an Art15 for kicking over some lamp posts while intoxicated at one of his first assignments, at least from what I can remember.

  27. Green Thumb says:

    Christopher Piro is still a loser.

    No change here.

  28. I am keeping this short on the interweb and want to put it on record: Christopher Piro is IN NO WAY RELATED TO ME.

    He is a shit stain to the surname, PIRO, and honestly – he may not even pronounce it that way, “PEER-Oh” which by the way guys, is proper though there are hundreds of Piro’s who say it like PIE’Ro” so who knows. But even still, in any way of the PIRO name, as the pronunciation can simply be a geographical fix & may still all be from same area of Southern Italy.

    So, may this guy receive proper punishment, whatever that is, for masquerading around as a veteran, and not even just a vet, but a “wounded” vet when my fucking friend is dead and his buddy, my other friend from HS, survived with that horrible fucking memory and living with 1 arm and no legs, I mean … is this guy fucking serious? My cousin is destroyed, his mind, man. Like, I don’t get it.

    I wish I could knock him the fuck out. What a piece of shit. This is the type of thing that gets me so upset. I think it’s disrespectful that Obama took the troops out when he got in also which caused all this fucking nonsense now, and that’s how much I am proud and honorable towards veterans, because there is NO draft.

    It’s volunteer. You go & already know the possibilities. It’s pride in country, it’s protection of our families and friends and the entire United States of America and for that, this Christopher Shit For Brains Shit Stain Piro — wow.

  29. Jamie Hollar says:

    He’s a piece of shit. I have a 3 yr old by him who he has never seen, never called or asked about. Keeps jumping states to avoid child support. I’m embarrassed that I even believed his lies for the short time we were together. Last I heard he was in a lot of trouble w the law, big surprise there.
