Brigadier General Francis X. Hummel (– 1996) was a United States Marine officer and a legendary hero of honor.


Military serviceEdit

Hummel joined the United States Marine Corps at age of 18 and passed Boot Camp and the Infantry School before joining into the Force Reconnaissance. He was then sent into the Vietnam War. He served in North and South Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. He gained the Congressional Medal of Honor for being the soul survivor in his unit and still managed to kill 130 North Vietnamese soldiers. He then continued to serve in China, South Korea, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Cuba, Bosnia, Serbia, Western Germany, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Israel and Afghanistan. While he was in Vietnam, he was part of an operation that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of U.S. Marines, due to allied aerial bombings on his own position. He blamed the deaths on the U.S government, as they ordered the bombings. In his military career, he gained the Congressional Medal of Honor, 2 Silver Stars, 3 Bronze Stars, the Navy and Marine Corps Medal, Distinguished Action Ribbon, etc. He also served as a Marine Corps strongman, wrestler and boxer. Due to his Marine Corps experience, he is believed to be a strong believer in the U.S. Constitution, opposing the U.S. Government's oppression and murder.


After his refusal to harm innocent American civilians, Hummel's men betray him. A standoff ensues and Hummel, along with his friend and only loyal soldier, Major Tom Baxter, are fatally wounded.

After both, having killed multiple traitors, Baxter dies instantly and Hummel manages to reveal the last rocket's location to Mason and Goodspeed before dying himself.
