Demetrick "Tre" Pennie grew up in inner city Houston, Texas, during the height of "America's War of Drugs," a period marred by augmented shooting violence and drug use. After witnessing the shooting death of a family member in high school, Tre decided to pursue a career in law enforcement and began to map out his path — this led him to the doorsteps of the U.S. Army.
