Biography Edit

Early life Edit

Both his father and grandfather were naval officers. He was born in Detroit, but raised in the Tidewater region of Virginia. In high school, his football team won a Virginia State football championship.

He is a POW. He was held captive by the talebans in the Korangal Valley in Afghanistan together with TC, Rick and Sebastian Nuzo for 18 months. He would be kept in solitary confinement for long stretches.

He was engaged to a woman named Hannah, a former CIA analyst who embedded Magnum and his team in Afghanistan (and bedded the man himself, apparently). Unfortunately for Magnum, it was all an act. Hannah betrayed his trust, which led to his capture and time spent as a P.O.W. Oops!

His mum, who had been sick for a while, passed away while he was held in captivity in Afghanistan. He didn’t even know she had died until after he was released. He missed her funeral.His father served during the Vietnam War.

After they escaped they all moved to Hawaii. He has a deal with Robin Masters, a war journalist who wrote a series of books based on him and his friends. He resides in his home.
