Christopher Wilcox had been born in Ireland. His father at the time was the director of the reconstruction of the country.. As such he spent quite a few years in Irland insuring that the country had a working transportation system. He also oversaw the construction of a lot of modern facilities. It was the first post that his mother could be with her husband as for most of the years that the general had worked building the Canal there were no proper facilities. Yet as a young boy he learned the Irish tongue and his mother taught him Italian and Spanish. He attended the Hawaiian High school at the military base in Ireland and they left for home. Home for him was a strange place. He had only been back in Hawaii for visits and He was greeted by someone who he really did not know. The person who picked him up was an officer in the Royal Hawaiian Navy and it was only latter that he found out that he was Rear Admiral Kamehameha II. He stayed as a guest at the Kamehameha Family Estate for several weeks until he was processed in as a student at the Military Academy. He did quite well with his studies and the fact that he spoke three foreign languages brought him to the attention of the Royal Hawaiian Intelligence Agency. But first he served as an infantry officer including commanding a platoon of soldiers in the Central American Republic. He got a chance to see the Canal up quite close. Then he was ordered back to Hawaii and transferred to the RHIA. He briefly served over seas in Ireland before returning home.He left the Army and got another degree. He then decided to run for office and was elected to the House in a safe district.
