Pipeworks studio head Robert Daly's military credentials have come under scrutiny recently, after a group researched his records. Daly has been identifying himself as a former Green Beret, lending credence to a military expert guiding the Deadliest Warrior series. This led one former Master Sergeant to do some digging with official government agencies.

"We heard about Robert Daly just like we do all our Special Forces/ Green Beret frauds," Jeff Hinton told IndustryGamers. Hinton is a retired Master Sergeant of the US Army, former Green Beret, and owner of Professional Soldiers. He says the group sent for Daly's records via the Freedom of Information Act. "We requested his records from the NPRC (National Personnel Records Center) and USASOC (United States Army Special Operations Command)."

According to Hinton, Daly's records show he was an imagery analyst, and USASOC (USA Special Operations Command) has no record of him. "The real Special Forces soldiers aka the 'Green Berets' take a very dim view when an individual uses our title and our reputation, a reputation we forged in blood, for personal or political gain," said Hinton.

      Quote from the fact checker's site is depressing: "Men, Special Forces is a mistress. Your wives will envy her because she will have your hearts. Your wives will be jealous of her because of the power to pull you away. This mistress will show you things never before seen and experience things never before felt. She will love you, but only a little, seducing you to want more, give more, die for her. She will take you away from the ones you love, and you will hate her for it, but leave her you never will, but if you must, you will miss her, for she has a part of you that will never be returned intact.

      And in the end, she will leave you for a younger man."
