For most of his waking life, Cold Front is crazy about tanks. Since he was a wee little boy, his toy collection includes tanks of all eras. He bought and read up on all books that involve tanks and the strategies used in implementing them. He can get carried away so much that even just driving a regular car, he can't help but pretend he's in a tank rolling out on the battlefield. What happens is that no car lasts longer than two weeks in his hands. When he finally joined the Army, it was a no-brainer to put him in the 3rd Armored Division. With the constant obsession with tanks, one can't help but conclude that it had everything to do with being born and raised so near to Fort Knox where the test field is always fogged up by diesel fumes of heavy machines trudging the ground and the sound of fury their cannons bring.
