However his father would hear none of this and they had an argument. Mike stormed out and joined up at the academy, wanting to be a tactical officer to show his father. But he didn't have the skills or the 'warrior heart' for the job. So he took a long look at his life and called his mother, a physician and surgeon. She suggested he look in counseling, since he was good at listening to people, which he did.
His father heard of his decision, but his pride wouldn't let him talk to his son.
