Roadblock´s dream was to be a gourmet chef. He was working as a bouncer to earn money to attend the Escoffer School in France when an army recruiter convinced him that the army could train him to be a chef. Roadblock joined but found army menus and preparation techniques too appalling. Transferred to the infantry. Qualified expert: M-2 Browning .50 cal; Heavy Machine Gun; all Warsaw Pact Heavy MGs; M-16; M1911A1 Auto Pistol.
“A .50 cal. Browning weighs 84 pounds. Add fifty pounds for the ammo – that´s about 134 pounds of steel generating 2930 f.p.s. in muzzle velocity at a cyclic rate of 550 r.p.m. Anybody who can handle that doesn´t need a machine gun to keep me away!”
