No man in the Joe Team had to struggle the hardest and the longest to get to where he is today than Major Altitude. Dismissed as too short or too skinny as a kid, he found his calling when he read about the Joe Team on the news. He found a benchmark to reach and go beyond. As soon as he could, he signed up to join the Army. He studied and worked more than any other candidate in the Army Aviation School, eventually reaching the top of his class and become one of the best helicopter pilots. Through it all, he has never quit on any assignment and impressed everyone with his utter determination.

- The "Major" in "Major Altitude" name is just part of his codename - it suggests the amount of altitude he gets, not his rank.
