Marcos grew up in Minton, South Carolina to Portuguese immigrant parents. He was an average kid in school and didn’t have many friends. In highschool, Marcos became intrigued about joining the military to get out of town. He signed up for the JR ROTC program in his high school. During this time he excelled in the course and at graduation, he was highly recommended to the army by his teacher.
Marcos enlisted in the army after graduating and went into basic training. He was assigned duty in the middle east. After doing 2 tours in Afghanistan and Iraq, Marcos came back home to New Jersey. He decided to see if he can get a job doing non military work but they would only last a couple months before he would grow tired of it and get fired.
A couple years went on and one thing hadn’t changed, Marcos missed being out on the field. While at the gun range, Marcos received a call. He stepped out and called the number back and it was an old friend of his, Jericho, who wanted to know if he was interested in doing some work. Marcos accepted the terms and the rest was history.
