From the neighborhood, the war, and college he learned it all!
He learned how to survive by knowing, understanding, and dealing with people.
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.
