Peter grew up on a farm in Austin, Texas. His family was military oriented so he was going to join the Army regardless. He grew up hunting and fishing and was taught basic survival by his father so he knows how to live off the land. Once he was 18 he enlisted in the army with a childhood friend named Peter. Peter died while they were in Iraq and it hit Buck hard, he doesn't want to lose another friend like that again. After doing 3 tours in Iraq he ended up becoming a NATO member and got to relax for a few years before being sent out to Chernarus. He was there to help keep Cherno safe but was overun by the infected. He lost contact with his squad and was forced to retreat to the country side with the gear on his back. Now he searches clear around Chernarus for other survivors to help out wherever he can.
