According to Miller he was a ''"goofy"'' kid who used to walk around on his hands, sing songs and peed a "V" on everyone's jackets for victory and Vecchio. He is assumed to hold the rank of Private as Miller sees him as a child by how he does such pranks on fellow rangers. Apparently he could walk around on his hands faster than his feet and was small, so small in fact it amazed Miller that he managed to become a ranger in the army.
