Personal History

Tom enlisted in the US Army out of High School, mostly for the college money. He was a decent enough soldier except at shooting, which he was excellent at. He didn't care for it much, and got out after four years. After the Army, L'Amour put himself through law school, and started his own practice a few years after that. He was on vacation in [location] when the event happened, and with most of the population displaced or dead, he set himself up well pretty quickly. Fearing a loss of information with the end of the world, L'Amour liberated every book he deemed useful and did his best to start to save and print whatever he deemed especially important online. Besides the loftier preservation of the past, he also grabbed himself the nicest American car he could find and every carton of cigarettes he saw, figuring that they'd be useful to trade.
