Code Name: Muskrat
File Name: Williams, Ross A.
Primary Military Speciality: Infantry
Secondary Military Speciality: Social Services
Birthplace: Thibodaux, Louisiana
Muskrat spent his formative years up to his knees in one swamp or another, hunting raccoon, possum and wild pig. He was able to hold his own against poachers, ´gator skinners, moonshiners, escapees from the chain gangs, and smugglers. Ranger School and JWTC* seemed like summer camp to him. As far as he was concerned, they weren´t teaching him anything exotic at all!

“If I had to go chase down Muskrat in the swamp, I´d give up before I started. He´d be sprinkling cayenne pepper in his tracks to throw the dogs off, laying false trails into water moccasin lairs, rigging deadfalls, setting snares, and having himself a good ol´ time, never even workin´ up a sweat. I´d just as soon go home and watch TV.”
