We’ve been sent Big Willie Robinson a number of times over the years and somehow never seemed to find the time to get around to doing an article.
When a person passes away there’s not an urgent need to expose them as a fraud.
Once Daniel Miller of the L.A. Times contacted us asking about him. We decided move forward also.
Big Willie has a huge footprint on the internet. You can search “Big Willie Robinson” and find articles and videos from his days as a street racer.

It seems from 1966 give or take a year, until his death, Big Willie had claimed to have been a Green Beret. He had the habit of wearing a 5th Group Green Beret for decades. Sorta like his signature look. He seemed to always wear an SF shirt, Airborne wings etc…
👉Big Willie in his own words👈 Give it time to load.
He claimed to have been on covert missions in Vietnam and having been wounded on one of those missions. He said he was sorta link James Bond.
All those claims are false.
Willie Robinson did serve. It was for 2 months in Basic Training from 08/24/66 until 10/26/66 for a total of 64 days. He was medically discharged as unfit for duty.
After working with Daniel and having the many calls we did with him, it turns out some people told Daniel that they knew all along. sad that they knowingly allowed him to live the lie.
👉L.A. Times Article by Daniel Miller👈 Well worth the listen.
His Claims vs the Facts:
Served in the Army: True
Covert missions in Vietnam: False
Served in Vietnam in any capasity: False
