Sadly yet another WWII Fraud in
our midst, this time itís a 508th Prcht
Inf Cook who claims to have been in Normandy. The
only problem being that had got off the boat in June
1944 in Scotland arriving from America.
The name is Adelchi A. Pilutti
and yet another liar about his time in combat. The
University in Mississippi is creating a Diorama to
commemorate his feat except it is not true. He
first joined the 508th Prcht Inf August
According to his accounts given to Marc Poole at the
Fine Arts Department, MGCCC - JC Campus he states
that he lead a stick of men into Normandy. A
Private never led a stick. A Sergeant that led a
stick in Normandy was on one plane for the 800 plus
planes. Please remember that Pilutti was in
Scotland at this time.
Someone like him is an insult
to the men who actually went in. He did not jump in
Holland either. He came in by truck as he was a
Cook. He never saw one second of combat in the front
lines in WWII. Even his Combat Infantry Badge is
strange. He received if on 25 September 1944.
He is the only 508th Prcht Inf man to not get it on
17 September 1944 date after the Holland Campaign.
He was not wounded on 17 September 1944 as he was
still in England at that time period. His CIB
was awarded April 4, 1945.
Pilutti was not in the Ardennes
either; he was in a hospital with a Non-Battle
He came back into the 508th Prcht Inf
March 1945. The Ardennes Campaign was between 16
December 1944 and 25 January 1945. Please check the
Morning Reports showing him Non-Battle just before
Pilutti was in two campaigns
the Rhineland and Central Europe, thatís it. He was
a Pfc at the end of the war.
His 53-55 Discharge paper shows that someone altered
his records as well. He did not arrive in time for
Normandy as someone in their own ink changed it. If
Pilutti was not entitled to the Bronze
Star Arrowhead for either Normandy or Holland.
That means he never jumped out of an airplane into
Iím really getting sick of the
fakes coming out of the woodwork. This is another
example of someone taking the credit that belongs to
real soldiers, not a lying Cook. He even got St.
Louis NPRC in on the errors in 2001.
They have him as being in Normandy when in fact he
Please check the Documentation it speaks much louder
that his lies. Here are his records in order.
You can see here how the time
overseas is counted. The Pilutti 53-55 shows
he actually left 30 May 1944 if you look at the
dates he was overseas, not the handwritten 10 May
