File Card: Beachhead was a Lane Instructor at the Ranger School in Fort Benning and an Observer/Advisor at the Covert Ops School in Central America. He's meticulous, patient, and strong-willed. He likes getting up at 0500 hours to take a ten-mile run and run a PT (Physical Training) session before breakfast. He enjoys squatting motionless beside a jungle trail for three days straight waiting to ambush bad guys that might never show up. What he hates are people who aren't interested in doing their best. Qualified expert in all NATO and Warsaw Pact small arms.
"Most folks get mad on occasion or at least get irritable - not Beachhead. He thinks anger is a waste of time and energy. Rage clouds the vision and pollutes logic. Fury impairs judgement and makes you careless. The results of anger are totally unacceptable to Beachhead. He doesn't get angry...he gets even."
