UGO made an interesting discovery yesterday after the announcement that the next Medal of Honor game will be set in Afghanistan. The rugged fellow on the game‘s promo image, who bears a striking resemblance to ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, appears to in fact be a real life war hero. Either that or “Cowboy,” a United States Special Forces officer, has an identical twin with likewise identical facial hair. Check out the above composite image made by the guys over at UGO.
The two photos of Cowboy were taken on August 24, 2002 for a series on the Afghanistan conflict in LIFE Magazine.
