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 a recruiter convinced him that the army could train him as well. At bootcamp, Roadblock found Army menus and preparation techniques too appalling! He remained steadfast in his goal to be a chef, but at the same time, developed a new skill – being a heavy machine gunner! He was selected by Tiger Force because of his ability to operate a heavy machine gun, in addition he could transform simple K-rations into gourmet delicacies.
“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. and you have one awesome machine gun! Anybody who can handle that doesn´t need a machine gun to keep me away!”
