This 42 year-old ultra-warrior is at the top of his game. The team leader for Arklight’s Spear Team played football for Yale, and graduated in 1996 with a degree in history. At 6’2″, and 230 pounds. he played linebacker starting his junior and senior years. John had no interest in continuing a promising football career after receiving a scholarship to Harvard. There he completed his Masters degree, and then his Ph.D. in war history in June of 2001.
While he applied for a fellowship for the fall semester, September 11th, 2001 refocused his life forever. The athletic-genius found his way into the Navy’s Officer Candidate School (OCS), graduating at the top of his class. By the end of 2003, John found his way into the teams. Within a year, he got assigned to SEAL Team Six. His affinity, and real knowledge of history developed him into the most formidable strategist and tactician in the U.S. arsenal.
In 2006, after three-tours abroad, John was selected for Arklight testing. The testing system was, in and of itself, considered confidential within the Department of Defense (DOD). After passing this multi-tier testing system John was assigned to the Navy War College, where he received advanced training in strategy and tactics. After almost four additional years of training, John was approved for Arklight service on Dagger team. In 2014, John was assigned as the Spear team leader where he continues to serve.
This decorated war veteran leads the most formidable small unit within the entire U.S. arsenal. In 2015, John was promoted to the rank of Captain in the United States Navy but that had no bearing in the one military unit that doesn’t exist. The skill set he possesses will ensure he remains operational for many years to come. John’s historical knowledge is unmatched, while his combat intuition remains at it’s peak. This warrior comes from a long-line of soldiers, and that lineage will ensure he survives the war to come.
John always does the right thing, even if it isn’t the popular thing. He carries an uncommon faith in a fallen world, and manages to maintain his moral compass even in the worst of circumstances. He leads with confidence, while staying in touch with those who depend upon him. His classified personality type is a strong ENTJ.
