Sergeant Bill Bee spent thirteen years in the Marines after growing up in rural Ohio, where he spent hours outdoors developing survival skills as a Boy Scout. In high school he focused on books, music, and a career in the military. He wanted to follow in the footsteps of the men in his family and serve his country. He enlisted at the age of seventeen, started boot camp two weeks after graduation, and was sent overseas almost immediately after watching 9/11 unfold in his barracks. He moved through the ranks from rifleman to Staff Sergeant with a tour of Guantanamo Bay and four deployments in Afghanistan where he fought the Taliban in Kandahar, Garmsir and during the battle for Marjah. When his Marine career came to an early end, he settled down in Jacksonville, North Carolina, with his wife Bobbie and son Ethan, who was born while he was on the battlefield. He now works on a Marine training range at Camp Lejeune, plays video games and rides his Indian motorcycle in his spare time.
