Sergeant First Class Bob Brown is an American special operations soldier who has helped save the United States from devastating national security threats on numerous occasions.

Robert Davis Brown was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. His father, Hugh, was a bank officer; while his mother, Connie, was an elementary school teacher. After Bob graduated from high school, he went on to Washington University in St. Louis. While there, he began dating fellow student, Kim Anderson. After Bob graduated from Washington University with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, he married Kim. He enlisted in the United States Army shortly after the wedding.

Bob decided to become an infantryman. After completing basic combat training and then infantry advanced individual training at the U.S. Army Infantry School, he went on to the U.S. Army Airborne School. Upon completing airborne training, Bob was assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division as an airborne infantryman in the 1st Battalion, 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment. Soon after becoming a fire team leader, he earned the Ranger Tab at the U.S. Army Ranger School. A little while after he earned the Air Assault Badge at the U.S. Army Air Assault School, Bob was assigned to the 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade as an air cavalryman in the 1st Squadron, 17th Cavalry Regiment.

As an air cavalryman, he served as part of a squad that performed ground reconnaissance and manned observation and listening posts, as well as provided ground security as needed. Bob later attended the U.S. Army Pathfinder School and the U.S. Army Mountain Warfare School. Eventually, he rose to the position of squad leader and then aero-rifle platoon sergeant upon his promotion to Sergeant First Class. Shortly after he earned the Expert Infantryman Badge, Bob was invited by a representative of the Joint Special Operations Command to apply to join an elite ultra-clandestine special operations unit.

Designated "1st Special Actions Group", this black ops team is simply referred to as "The Unit" by its members. The Unit officially does not exist and its immediate chain of command goes to The Unit's commanding officer straight to the President of the United States; this bypasses the Secretary of Defense. Though it is specifically directed to kill or capture high value targets or dismantle terrorist cells, The Unit often engages in direct action missions, hostage rescues, and covert missions working directly with the Central Intelligence Agency, as well as high ranking protective services of U.S. leaders during visits in war torn countries. It operates under the cover of being known as the 303rd Logistical Studies Group, and its operators are all under cover of being desk bound clerks and military logistics personnel.

With Kim's full support, Bob accepted the offer and applied to join the 1st Special Actions Group. After passing the assessment and selection, he went on to the operator training course. Upon completing training, Bob was assigned to the The Unit's Alpha Team. In his capacity as an operator in The Unit, he engages in such missions as hostage rescue, the capture and elimination of terrorist forces and intelligence gathering on terrorist threats, as well as various other "projects" authorized by the U.S. government deemed unsuitable and too risky for standard military forces.
