When making the character of Sam Davis, my Patreon supporter, I asked for a description. One of the things he said was “that typical Lieutenant hair” and I knew exactly what he was talking about. I wondered why Lieutenants all seem to have that thick hairstyle, and I contemplated the why of it. I then thought about pretty much every Major I had knew, and suddenly it dawned on me– you have to enjoy it while you can.
Now we have Lieutenant Paul Chau show up, briefly mentioned awhile ago but now I put him in the story. He does not represent a Patreon character; I thought him up out of whole cloth. He was commissioned out of ROTC into the Artillery but –of course– because you gotta take what you can get when it comes to command slots and deployments, he was willing to branch over to Engineers to go with the 213th Battalion. So these are all the Platoon Leaders for the 213th now, and we’ll continue to gather in a few more before going to Mobilization station. Stay tuned for both old and new faces to show up!
