Rafael explains that he comes from a family with limited resources and has made his way through pure personal effort, fighting for things that he has wanted, goals that he has set for himself in life. He tells us that in the 70’s and 80’s in his country there was a civil war between the guerrillas and the army that left many dead. Rafael decides to enter the army since at that time it was almost the only source of income in his country. Thanks to his learning ability, he rises quickly until he goes to the United States at “Fort Benning” and graduates as special forces with the rank of second lieutenant.
