From the neighborhood, the war, and college he learned it all!

The neighborhood:

He learned how to survive by knowing, understanding, and dealing with people.

The War:

Taught him how to survive by going for days without food or sleep.  How to track without being seen.  He learned hand to hand combat: weapons, communications, underwater diving & sky diving.


He learned to live through education.  Being strong in math, computer electronics, & business; he searched for a job to make use of all his talents, his thirst for thrill and adventure, his hunger for more excitement & knowledge. 

With crime & corruption overtaking our world, his search was ended.
