- had a rough transition to civilian life: 2 arrests for drunk and disorderly after returning to the States. Got his break when a family member got him into a Plumbers' union apprenticeship; has been working on city projects ever since. Gave up alcohol when he started the job.
- Clearly misses the camaraderie of military service. Claims not to miss the action but this seems dubious.
- Has a strong sense of right and wrong, with little room for moral complexity. Believes in honor and duty, but may struggle with situational flexibility.
