Fernando is a former Marine POG, who still plays with Pogs discs to this day. He is a four-time certified expert in the Staple Range, and has been nominated for two Purple Hearts for paper-cut injuries sustained in the air-conditioned Ready Room tent in Kandahar. He was awarded the "Marine POG of the Year" in 2009 for his hard work doing pilot's jobs, and is remembered for his infamous Planizzle of the Dizzle all-hands email.
