A former surfer and body-builder, ROCK 'N ROLL takes his role as the team automatic weapons specialist very seriously. It's his job to lay down the suppressive fire the allows his buddies to advance safely from one covered position to another. The combined weight of his weapon and ammunition is well over sixty pounds and that's not including his rucksack and body armor, which adds another fifty pounds to the total. ROCK 'N ROLL has to run with all that weight to keep up with the team and provide constant cover while staying totally alert to any sudden changes in the tactical situation. "If I don't stay in shape, I'm about as useless as a wetsuit on a frog", he says. He knows the team is depending on him to do his job and nothing is going to stop him from delivering a hundred percent.
"I don't even have to like you. I could even hate your guts. If you're on my team and you're calling for my help, I am there."
