I think his kids became sucessful white collar workers, same with DeMeo's kids. I'm not sold on Montiglios honesty, didn't he lie about his time in the military?


He seems to have lied a lot about his time in military. He was also a long time heroin addict, so he might not have been as close to Mafia members as he claimed to be.

I think Dom is a pretty likeable guy and I believe the vast majority of what he says except for his military history. (See my remarks above on that) I know for a fact that a lot of guys embellish their military history. As one Special Forces General said "If everyone who claims he was in Special Forces really was, we would never have to recruit" I do believe he served in Viet Nam

I think in Murder Machine that Montiglio embellishes his stories in that he is always twisting things to make himself look like a good guy or a victim. I don't think the stories he tells about other people are out right lies, just that he slants everything to make himself appear to be a better guy than he was.

He's always complaining about nino and while nino is not a nice person by any stretch, nino never really gets in dom's way and is rather lenient with him given that dominick doesn't act very responsibly at any point while living there. He acts like things are supposed to be handed to him (always complaining about how much nino pays him) and never really does anything on his own or when he does he blows it on coke and booze. Nino never tells him not to earn, just to stay way from the demeo's. Instead dominick didn't earn and did hang out with that crew

On his Dark Visions documentary Montiglio seemed to imply he was a sniper. He talked a little about his sniper rifle that he said had a large sound suppressor. But i don't recall him actually coming out and saying he was a sniper. He did talk about being in Nam on the part of the documntary that i saw.

He said he was the light weapons specialist. He would be handling non-crew served weapons(heavy machine guns/mortars) systems like rifles/handguns etc.

Well according to Montiglio, Nino did force his father out of the house after refusing to participate in some bit of auto fraud Nino had devised. That and forbidding Montiglio to ever see his or talk to his father gain. Then you have Nino putting the kibosh on Montiglio's attempt to get made as well.

As for not doing anything, well he was Nino's bagman, not to mention the Vinny Mook and Dellacroce/Gotti stuff.

Assuming Albert was not connected, what kind of info could he provide, which would be worthy of a book?

Was it the usual, "Waiters treated us with respect, scary looking men visited the home, dad carried a gun, I had great toys, Uncle Nino bought me ice cream, Little League umps never called strike 3 when dad was watching, etc..."

In one picture Dominic is in Vietnam sitting around with some soldiers smoking and drinking, on his left arm is a tattoo, and on another photo when Dominic is home in USA he has the same tattoo on his left arm, i dont think he faked that.

Ya its not a question of wheather or not he actually was in vietnam, people are questioning if he was really in the special forces like he claimed, i wouldnt be surprised if he was lying about. In all the docs that hes in(and hes in a lot of them) he seems to like to take a lot of liberties with truth especially with the extent of his involvement with the demeo crew. Plus you can never really trust an addict. wink

According to Montiglio he was never involved with the DeMeo crew per se, although he did say he worked some protection rackets with Henry Borelli. Montiglio did say that DeMeo offered to get him into his porno rackets, but Gaggi told him no way.

The thing with dom's father is a big deal, no disagreement there.
I don't remember nino preventing dom from getting made.

In that life nobody gives you anything and everyone tries to take everything. Nino didn't do anything for anybody and he was helping dom by giving him a deal on rent, paying him to be his eyes, introducing him to important people as someone under his wing. He tried to set up dom in an ice cream business and a taxi business. He gave dom the world compared to other people. nino didn't do half that much for demeo and demeo did far more to help nino than dom ever did.

In the book that slant comes through as the way dom see's the world he seems to think he's owed something and is upset that he's not being valued when he can't see how much value nino actually placed in him compared to how nino treated everyone else. dom never seems to acknowledge that.

in several of Montiglio's documentaries he mentions that Gaggi was preventing him from being made cause he didnt want to lose Dom to Big Paul, bc he said after he was made, Big Paul was gonna make him his driver. thats just what ive seen montiglio claim several times.

In Murder Machine Montiglio says Castellano put him up for membership and wanted him as his driver, but Gaggi nixed it because he wanted to keep Montiglio working exclusively for him.

Montiglio also said he took Castellano to Studio 54 so he could see what the big deal was. One can only imagine the look on Castellano's face when he saw for himself.

ok thanks. I didn't remember that part in mm, but I did remember early on dom having a conversation with nino that nino was going to propose him to get straightened out. His motives for changing his mind make sense.

Montiglio was an admitted long time heroin addict, that right there would prevent him from ever being made. He tesifeid that he often took trips to Paul Castrellano's home. I can't belive that, Castelllano did not even have made members coming unless they were captains or close to him for a long time. Dom Montiglio is a man who says he served in a unit in Vietnam, a unit in which not one former member of it can remember having ever seen or met him. That was revealed in a book by some veterans called Stolen Valor, about people who lie about their military service.
