Tall (6’4″), brown-haired, golden-eyed, dimple-cheeked, strong jawed, ripped and sexy Owen Bradford. He’s also the cockiest bastard Tucker had ever met. It was lust at first sight, so naturally Tucker found him all kinds of annoying! During Phase III, Tucker finds himself in a trench with his Battle Buddy. There he was, nineteen and a horny as hell virgin, up close and personal with his walking wet dream and, just to top it off, apparently his straight pain-in-the-arse Buddy had no concept of space; and he liked to snuggle. Shortly after that night, Tucker and Owen go their separate ways with Tucker moving onto his Military Occupational Specialty in Washington DC.
