Depending on his environment, he can virtually disappear, as he can disguise himself very well in forests, deserts and arctic locations. He has the characteristics of a Vietcong soldier: Fight and never be seen. His key philosophy is as follows: Never fight face-to-face, hit and run, trick and confuse, use weather and nighttime at your advantage, travel light, be invisible, use natural cover and terrain to your advantage, use the art of sabotage, never fight a force greater than yourself and be popular with the people (which he learnt in his tour in Asia).
On a few occasions, Jason worked with Jay Freeman during the Colonial Fringe Wars as a marksman and strategic specialist. Thanks to his experience on the battlefield, many of the campaigns he assisted in were headline victories. Only then had the UN recognized his efforts in NE and SE Asia, thus providing compensation for healthcare, which at the time was much too late.
