Besides various military airships, I have acquired a fast civilian airship of questionable title from a once again widowed sister.  Fast airships unfortunately need more maintenance than slow ones so it spends a depressing amount of time being worked on.   I am often in search of short contract crews of good mechanics and expendable meatshields inexpensive  personnel.   With the current shortage of rich merchant airships I have taken to gun/rum running but of course I have a letter of marque so as not to miss any opportunities for profit.

Jackson Lee Ambrose is a gentleman of the southern U.S. and hails from Virginia. Taking up his father's occupation, he became a professional soldier during the wildest of the wild west and was assigned to some of the remotest posts on the American frontier in the 1880s. It was during this time that he met Dr. Leonard Wood who later, as Colonel Wood, recruited him for the 1st U.S. Volunteer Cavalry during the Spanish American War in 1898. Capt. Ambrose served honorably in the Cuban and Philippine Campaigns and became a boon companion to such luminaries as Jack Pershing and Theodore Roosevelt. The three were later to distinguish themselves in the Spanish Sky War of 1903-1906 through the capture of the Air Frigate 'Barcelona'. The one-time patriotic march 'Boarding the Barcelona' was a popular favorite of the war period as a result. The transition from horse cavalry to air cavalry was difficult for Ambrose but despite an initial fear of heights (flying just isn't natural!!) he has managed to overcome his trepidation regarding the modern airship (albeit with liberal medicinal use of Kentucky whiskey) and is one of our finer flight officers today.
