Addendum 3-A: Personnel History

He served 4 consecutive 4-year terms of duty on the USS Kitty Hawk; however, due to his love of fisticuffs, he never reached a higher rank than Culinary Specialist Second Class. Specialist Galen and three other crew members were involved in the recovery of SCP-███, which they encountered during a shore leave at ██████, █████████. Two members were killed during the retrieval, and a third later died of wounds sustained during the encounter. Galen suffered several injuries, including a comminuted fracture of the right femur, three cracked ribs, and the loss of the top of his right ear. The official cover story concerning this incident indicated that the four men were involved in a vehicle accident, possibly involving alcohol. As the 'driver' during this 'accident,' Galen was given a General discharge. For his part in the recovery of the artifact, he was then recruited into the SCP Foundation. He prefers to serve the Foundation in a support role, but is combat-certified.

Addendum 3-B: Miscellaneous

Has received standard Naval training with M9 pistol, Mossberg 500 shotgun, and M16 rifle.
Is 2C SCUBA certified.
Prefers to be called by his last name.
