Spearhead was the youngest and the most successful insurance salesman in the Pacific North-West. It was said that he could sell a term policy to a dead cow. Everybody liked him, trusted him, and bought more insurance from him than they could afford. Spearhead denies that guilt was a factor in his decision to join the army - he simply felt that somebody had to do it.
"Some guys, they're gonna lead a combat assault, right? They jump up and holler 'Follow me!' and charge full tilt at a bunker - halfway there, they look back, and no one's behind them! Of course not. The guy was a jerk. Spearhead could jump face first into a vat of rabid hyenas and fifteen guys would follow him. No hesitation. They'd jump SMILING. And of course, Spearhead's mad cat, Max, is always a source of inspiration."
