Filecard Information

File Name: Bennett, David J.
SN: AF 391080
Grade: Staff Sergeant
Birthplace: Burford, England
Primary Specialty: Deep Insertion Commando Operations
Secondary Specialty: Escape & Evasion

Growing up in the rolling hills of the English Cotswolds, BIG BEN spent most of his childhood outdoors, often without consent, leading to many games of "cat & mouse" with local search efforts. Needing discipline, BIG BEN joined the British Army's Second Battalion, Parachute Regiment (2 PARA) which led to the Mountain Troops of the 22 Special Air Service (SAS), the British equivalent of American Special Forces. He received initial training at Bradbury Lines Barracks in Hereford and likely participated in various covert and rescue operations in the Former Eastern Bloc, Gulf and Afghanistan before attracting the attention of the Special Action Force (S.A.F.) team.

BIG BEN is part of the Special Operations Force unit responsible for unconventional high-risk missions, usually behind enemy lines for long periods of time. He roots out and provides reconnaissance and surveillance of COBRA/RED SHADOW encampments. He is self sufficient, acting alone or as part of an initial strike force, creating disruption and assisting Forward Air Control.

From Captain "Eagle" Buckingham's Files:
"Smooth operations that are over in a matter of minutes or hours are the result of many weeks or months of preparation. If operations become a snafu, BIG BEN is the best we have to help escape a Hot Zone unscathed."
