Robert Cordray is a mild mannered government employee who fights a never ending battle for Truth, Justice, and a Zombie Free World.
Seriously, Robert is a former U.S. Army Paratrooper, Team Leader, Squad Leader, and Platoon Sergeant. During his military career with the 82d ABN & 25 INF DIV, Robert received specialized training in all aspects of light weapons, RECONDO, Jungle Operations, demolition and survival/SEAR. He also attended Non-Commissioned Officer training and graduated from the 18th ABN Corps Sniper School. Additionally Robert was awarded the Expert Infantry Badge, Combat Infantry Badge, Expeditionary Service, Good Conduct Medals and too much other good stuff that can't be mentioned.
As there really is life after the military, Robert continued his diverse education and is a licensed Paramedic & Instructor, certified Firefighter Vol., I, & II. He has worked in a wide variety of career fields as an Emergency Medical Dispatcher, Bio-Terrorism Analyst, Disaster Response Coordinator, and Correctional Training Officer.
Robert's hobbies include black powder shooting, modern firearms, trap, skeet, sporting clays, target, and tactical gun sports. His enthusiasm doesn't end there; in Robert's spare time he is an avid reloader, survivalist, bushcraft expert, vegetable gardener, hunter, home construction novice, cook, home canner and Zombie expert. If that isn't enough, Robert is an accomplished author, lyricist, lecturer and all around great guy.
In 2008 his first book, "Zombies 101," was nominated for the Mail Order Zombie Dead Letter Awards in the category of Best Book, Non-Ficton. Robert was also a contributing author to "Zombology" which was the winner of the 2009 Mail Order Zombie Dead Letter Awards for Best Anthology.
If that's not enough and Robert sounds too good to be true, I have one more tidbit with which to win you over; he's kind to animals and kids love him too!! Robert has spent his life preparing for the worst; he is ready and has the tools for any disaster. In Robert's own words, "It's not if the dead will rise, it's when!"
