Spearhead was the youngest and most successful insurance salesman in the Pacific North West. It was said that he could sell a term policy to a dead cow. Everybody like him, trusted him, and bought more insurance from him than they could afford. Spearhead denies that guilt was a factor in his decision to join the army—he simply felt that somebody had to do it.
"Some guys, they're gonna lead a combat assault, right? They jump up and holler, 'Follow me!' and charge full tilt at a bunker—halfway there, they look back, and no one's behind them! Of course not.
