His former CO had suggested a list of books on leadership and command and found himself absorbed in the books, learning ways he could become more than what he ever thought he could be. The fishing was from retired marine that told him it would help clear his mind. He was still working on that.|
|Personal History||Patrick grew up never knowing his family. He does not know if his parents gave him away, they were killed or someone took him. He had no family and all he knew was the system. He moved from family to family, weeks to a year or two at a time. While never abused, he never felt part of anything being moved around.
After becoming a product of the system, he left the family he was assigned to at 16 to strike out on his own. He fell into a gang quickly, finding people that at least pretended to like him and stood by him. As part of his official induction, he had to rob a bank. He gathered a group of people and made plans.
On the day of the heist, he discovered too late that one of those in the gang he chose for his induction was an informant. The heist fell apart and everyone ran. One of the cops listening to the wire heard how well he ordered his people and saw that he was nearly 18. He offered him a choice. Go with him and joint the Federation Marines like he did when he was young and in trouble, or go to jail. He chose the Marines.
The cop told him before they entered that he had natural leadership and told him to be dedicated to the Marines and they would take care of him more than what the gang would. That was the first time someone truly wanted him to be better than what he thought he would be and it forever changed his life.
