Personal History DOB: 10/07/2360

Born in Omaha Nebraska, his mother Winona died in childbirth. His father was a career Marine. As a result, he was raised by his Aunt Claire. John lacked for nothing materially or psychologically. At age five his aunt moved them to Monterey Park California to a house his father had bought. He had a distant relationship with his father who was always stationed somewhere far off in space and was seldom home on leave. Never the less, he contacted his son weekly, contacts John treasured. Those and the occasional picture he would send. His father was killed in a firefight with insurgents while serving on Alpha Eight when John was twelve.

In High school, he excelled in football but had average grades. UCLA offered him a full ride scholarship. He was a good student and an above average football player, his Aunt Claire passed his junior year, John Stryker was alone in life.

He never considered the next level of football, as joining the Marines had become an obsession. Reluctantly, but instinctively, he detached from his girlfriend. His reasoning was that he would leave no one behind. He also withdrew from almost everyone but his team until the end of his Senior season, then he maintained very few close friends, as he understood his calling and it's demands.The day after graduation he was at Star Fleet Headquarters, San Francisco California entering the Academy. As his right hand raised John knew he was committed for life, this was his destiny, a Starfleet Marine.
