For “Cracking the Rich Code”, 7 Rules apply:
Rule 1: Riches Abound when you discover your dreams, boldly pursue your destiny, and with your Connections persevere through challenges of corruption.
Rule 2: Caution: there is an enemy. Chaos seeks to kill, steal, and destroy those who can be devoured.

Dad’s short perhaps unfulfilling stint in the Army drove Junior to an airshow when he was 6 years old, where the amazing Blue Angels performed. The stage was set.
