The grizzled NCO is a bastard, but there’s no better bastard in the world. He’s seen it all, heard it all, and done it all. He’s had more cigs, dip, beer and whiskey than any man should, all while running more miles and carrying more weight than any man could. His body only hurts when he wakes up, when he goes to bed, and all times in between. He’s gruff, unfeeling, and seems to exist only to work. And he lives this life for one reason and one reason only: he knows he’s the best chance of bringing his troops home.
