One hundred men will test today but only three win the Green Beret.

Toby Haynes, Green Beret… NOT!!

We were sent Toby Haynes by someone that follows our site. Thanks FC.

The pictures we saw were comical. The guy looks to be in his mid 20’s early 30’s. Turns out he was born in 1986.

In the pictures, he’s wearing a 12th Special Forces Group “Flash” on his beret. 

The 12th was deactivated, along with the 11th Special Forces Group, on 15 September 1995, meaning he was about 9 when they were no longer active.

Sooo, if we take into consideration Basic/AIT/Airborne/Selection/and the SFQC (Special Forces Qualification Course), He would’ve had to enter the service when he was 6 or 7 depending on his MOS. Talk about busting ass!!

He wears:

CIB True

MFF Wings False, Not even Airborne

Special Forces Long Tab False, never even attempted the SFQC

Airborne Tab and USASOC Patch False, never Airborne or in that unit.

Corporal False, He ETS'd a PV-1

 Row 1:

Distinguished Service Medal False

Row 2: 

BSM x 2 False

Purple Heart False

Row 3:

Joint Service Commendation Medal x 2 False

Army Commendation Medal with V Device True

Row 4:

Army Achievement Medal True

Navy Combat Action Ribbon False

Combat Readiness Medal False

Row 5:

Good Conduct Medal False

Berlin Airlift Medal w/o device, issued from 1948-49 False (LOL)

National Defense Service Medal True

Row 6:

Afghanistan Campaign Ribbon True

Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal False

Global War on Terrorism Service Medal True

Row 7:

Air Force Military Training Instructor Ribbon False

Army Service Ribbon True

Army Distinguished Civilian Service Award Ribbon False

Row 8:

Overseas Ribbon True

Air Force Small Arms  Marksmanship Ribbon False

United Nations Ribbon False

Row 9

NATO Medal True

NATO Training Mission Iraq Medal False

Multinational Force Observer Medal (V device) False

Basic Parachute False, never attended much less graduated Airborne school

Air Assault False, never attended much less graduated Air Assault school

Expert in Everything False

SCUBA False, never attended much less graduated Combat Diver Qulification Course

After looking at his records, it looks like he was an 11C, Indirect Fire Infantryman for a little over a year. He might have had an issue or two from his short time in the service and the fact that he ETS'd a PV-1.

It also looks like he has others issues besides Stolen Valor. Here's the Link to article about his manslaughter.

Toby Haynes, fake Green Beret, you'll now be added to Hall of Fakes, frauds, and Phonies under those not worth our time.

He’ll be filed in those not worth our time.

No Idea. It's hard to follow up on these guys as the workload is very heavy. We expose them and move on.

Great site I am glad to see it in operation. William Frank Grist SF

U.S. Naval Aircrewman (90-95):

He's also a registered sex offender....and a scum bag.

U.S. Naval Aircrewman (90-95):

I think this is well known by this point - but for added extra bonus actually is a REAL registered sex offender. This guy is a danger to the community in a multitude of ways & he shows no shame or remorse & he's also a real d-bag. He needs to get locked up.

Brian M Whitney:

Is he still getting 100% disability or was he ever? Whats the deal with this story?

Don Canaday:

Every time some faker claiming to be SF gets in trouble or acts up, it can reflect badly on us in the media. Another reason to point them out when they present themselves.


Wow! I am stupefied that a sex offender would expose himself to so much attention and expect the truth to not come out...


I refuse to believe any SF or Operator would wear that bow tie, just saying.


Usually when I see a guy with this much shite on a vest, jacket and hats he does not pass the smell test. If you screaming that loud "look at me I am a hero" you probably aren't.


I guess he spent 1 year and 5 months as a pivot man and is trying to reclaim his dignity. Sorry never going to happen now.
