He has your back!

From mission brief he was on the job, I can’t imagine what would have happened if I hadn’t hired him. The system is totally against you and if you think you can go it alone you’re a fool. Mike’s Military background gives him the expertise to defend you, he’s professional, he knows what it takes…
