Jerry began his career as a grunt and quickly worked his way up the ranks to paladin. He is a competent warrior as well as a decent strategist. His accomplishments soon earned him the rank of squad leader and he was assigned a special squad. He and his select troops are sent in when situations demand special attention and tactics. In other words, they are a clean up crew.
Jerry is very proud of his squad and their accomplishments. He will often brag, loudly, about his squad and how important they are to the Brotherhood. Jerry has a very youthful attitude despite his age. He believes that if you take the time to grow up you'll grow old, and then it's time to die.
Jerry is not pleased with the base commander, Andrea Brixley. He devised a plan for ending the war with the local NCR once and for all, but could not get approval from the commander. She felt that it was a borderline suicide mission and, despite his tactical reputation, would not allow it. He now believes that her policies in regards to the war are lax and detrimental to the Brotherhood in general. He would like to see the commander replaced by Traci Niels who proclaims a more proactive solution to the war.
