|Personal History||George grew up in a farm in upstate New York. Surrounded by extended family via close tribal connections, he grew up with a life of hard work and hard play. It hardened more than his body, as he learned that nothing just falls in your lap.
Studying hard in school, he found he had less of an aptitude for book learning and was better with his hands. He could learn by reading but it took him longer to study than most.
During high school he found new found appreciation for military novels and his reading and comprehension improved.
He worked hard and managed to save enough money to attend a comprehensive two year apprenticeship at a gunsmithing school.
Afterwards he felt the need to join the Army. Since the school he attended wasn't accredited, George started in the infantry and worked his way up.
