This is the result of a keen eye and detective work of our games editor, Chris Plante. It turns out the soldier featured on the artwork shown for the new Medal of Honor game is in fact a real ass kicking US Special Forces Soldier codenamed "COWBOY"...
Not really a big fan of MOH franchise, but this caught my attention.
"It sure seems Modern Warfare (and its gobs of money) is the inspiration behind EA's announcement today of their new Medal of Honor. We know little about the game other than it takes place in Afghanistan and features a suspiciously bearded man. Suspicious, you say? Here's why:
Meet "Cowboy," an United States Special Forces officer and Medal of Honor Man's monozygotic twin. This particular picture (right), taken in August 24, 2002, is part of a series ran by Time magazine during the beginning of the War in Afghanistan. The snapshots showcase the man's every day routine: pumping iron, combing suspects and chasing women on his four-wheeler."
