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was deactivated, along with the 11th Special Forces Group, on 15 September 1995, meaning he was about 9 when they were no longer active.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

Impressive bio. Rambo, Ralph Macchio (Karate Kid) and Chuck Norris all rolled into one. They have a song named for him "Superman, Where Are You Now".


I don't know much about a military uniform BUT his pants are WAY too long...they bunch up on tops of his shoes and basically drag the ground in the back. Also, there was a pic of him with a lady...outside...without a cover. Hmm.


Someone collected this man's entire saga here:

Warning: you'll spend hours on this website.

Brother Of Brian Magyar:

9 June 2020

Ya' know, instead of considering why someone does what he does, like assholes, ya' jump to foul comments about someone ya' never met, or know anything about ….

I'd call our parents white trash, but that would be an insult to white trash ….

Brain went into the United States Army after July 1975, after I went into the United States Navy in that July ….

We both got out of Boot in September of 75' ….

That was the last I ever saw of him ????

Neither of us wanted to go into the Military, but we were kicked out he house by our mother, to call her a mother is also an insult to all mothers ....

If you ever saw the movie " Mommy Dearest " , then ya' might have some idea what our childhood was like ….

The only thing that put the smile on our mother's face was when she was beating the living shit out of her boys, buckle end first ….

In the late sixties, early seventies, Brian and I never did drugs, alcohol, or commit any crimes ….

As a kid, Brian always wanted to be part of a group, gang, whatever ….

I loved karate, so I walked the path of bushido, honor and face above all ….

Always a team player, but still a loner ….

People tell me I'm a veteran, but I'm quick to say that in my eight years in the United States Navy, ( 1975-1979 active, - 1983 reserve ),

I never carried a gun, or, was ever in any danger ….

Most of it on sea duty, all fun and games, and going over seas, but, after all, sailors belong at sea ….

Just as I was getting off active duty, I made Second Class Petty Officer, IC-2, N.E.C. ( M.O.S.) 4713, telecommunications,,,,

telephone man ….

Honorably discharged, I display that along with my DD-214

I'm now sixty-three, and retiring from the telephone company ….

So,,, no comments about me ….

It's been forty-five years now ….

Brian is my younger brother, but I understand him just the same …..

Kind'a like a car salesman, he always needed that affirmation from others ….

He still needs what he never got from our mother,,,, to be loved, appreciated, admired, respected ….

As a kid, he loved the song " Ballard of the Green Berets " ….

He wasn't stealing glory, but imitating that which he admired the most in the United States Army,,,, the Green Berets ….

When I read the comments about Brain, as I suspect, real Green Berets, and other Army Special Forces,,,, are much like United States Marines, United States Navy Seals, and now Antifa protesters ….

And I met a few Marines and Seals ( claiming ) during my time in the Navy ….

They are only really tough when the other guy can't fight back, shit-for-brains bullies ….

My proof, Viet Nam, Granada, Fallujah, Pakistan ….

As far as I know, you tough guys never faced real Soviet, Chinese, Iranian, or any other real Special Forces on equal footing ….

Hell, the real Rambo's in Viet Nam was the Viet Cong …..

And they kicked the ( bull ) shit out of you smart mouth's ….

When I was aboard ship, the only time I found our who went to Viet Nam was during dress inspections, when they wore their ribbons on their chest ….

They never talked about it, I assume it was the most horrifying times of their lives ….

Had Brian had good parents, good home, good schooling, a good life, I have no doubt he would have proudly earned the ribbons on his chest ….

In the United States Navy, I only earned an overseas service ribbon, and a good conduct ribbon, which I never wore, but are now on my old Navy uniform for when I pass away ….

Brian is, and always will be my brother, we suffered too much together as kids, and I appreciate the fact he is imitating the best the United States Army had to offer,,, in his time ….

And if you can't appreciate his admiration of the Green Berets, YA' can kiss my Navy Blue ass ….

Jory Jory:

I don't know what to say. He is such a silver tongue devil. He slid into our lives and we fell for his line of BS. This was back in the late 80's/early 90's. Met him in a local biker bar, he was a musician. I said, Thank you and welcome home. I lent him $$. I introduced him to a friend and that turned into a nightmare. Boy, he's got a special place in heaven. On a nicer note, Thanks so much for this site

SuperUser Account:

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

william frank grist:

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?
