SPEARHEAD was the youngest and most successful insurance salesman in the Pacific North West. It was said that he could sell a term policy to a dead cow. Everybody like 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. When Night Force conducts an attack against a Cobra base, Spearhead and Max always lead the unit to give it an added punch through the enemy's defense lines!
"When some guys try to lead a combat assault, 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, would always be a source of inspiration."
