Since he was 12 years old, he had a knack for shooting long ranges, He did not mind the strictness of his family really. he spent most of his spare time after school, at the range shooting the longer target his local Range had, which was 250ft. as soon as basic training was over he flew through the ranks and by the age of 21 he was already a Sargent. He then applied to be a marine sniper. He was accepted into the course and sent off to go train as a marine sniper. He passed the course with flying colors, just in time for the Russian attacks on Chernarus. He was quickly dispatched to Chernarus to help in the efforts on July 17th. Just a few weeks into his deployment, he knew all hope was lost and that he had to find a way to make it back to his family, By Himself.
