Frederick James Dimock was born to military parents in Hanau, Germany on May 26th, 1993. His father an Engineer with the US Army, his mother a former Air Defense Artillery battery commander. When his fathers tour ended in 1995, he went to teach at the Engineer School in Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. At a young age Fred had an aptitude for anything military, having memorized the rank system for the Army at the age of 5, and studied Patton, Rommel, Napoleon, and Caesar before high school. In high school, like many other boys his age, he got a girlfriend, he thought he had it made. He had his girl, he had a plan for his life and things looked good. However when his father was transferred to another unit, this one a small reserve unit that needed a good active duty commander to bring up its failing ratings, he moved, and his girlfriend cheated on him, driving him further to the decision that the military and service were to be his life. After spending time in the north, he grew to hate it, and decided that, at the age of 18, he would enlist in the United States Army, and after considering the Corps of Engineers, he instead dedicded to go to Jump School at Fort Bragg, South Carolina and be an Airborne Infantryman.
By the time he got done with Basic, AIT and Jump School it was early 2012, and with the rest of his unit, the 1st BCT, in the 82nd Abn he deployed to Ghazni in Afghanistan, where he was part of the relief of the Polish Task Force White Eagle, after a smooth and somewhat boring deployment there he was transferred within the unit to the 3rd BCT, and was then sent to Iraq as part of OIR where he trained and assisted the IGF, teaching them basic infantrymans skills and battle drills. When this tour was over he was selected to be a Pathfinder, an elite Airborne Trooper who, like a JTAC would coordinate with the Air Force on landing zones and cargo drops before any sort of airborne or airmobile operation. He attended the Pathfinder school in Ft Benning, Georgia on March 23rd, 2015, and graduated three weeks later, only barely missing Honor Graduate and the Col. Robert L. Howard Award. In late 2015 he was sent with Rangers from the 2nd Ranger Battalion into northern Syria to aid Kurdish Rebels, or the YPG in the fight against ISIS, and to keep peace between the YPG and Turkish Military, who were pushing further into Northern Syria. Here he gained some much needed combat experience, getting into firefights with his team on a weekly, if not daily basis. They constantly moved, living out of their MATVs and MRAPs. Still Fred loved his time in Syria, and would give anything to back to the good days.
After spending just over a year and 3 months there, Fred finally went home and would not be going back, as Fox Company was disbanded and the Pathfinders spread across the 82nd, as well as the newly elected and inaugurated President Trump had pulled out special forces in favor of conventional troops like the 101st Airborne division and the 10th Mountain Division. When the infection occurred in July, he was sent in with other elements of 3rd BCT to assist the CDF. When they pulled out of Chernogorsk ODAs were coordinating CAS, and when the ODAs pulled out, Fred covered their retreat, working with a TACP/JTAC from the USAF to coordinate the air strikes. When the ODAs radioed that they were clear and would resume coordinating the strikes, Fred and his team returned to the NATO camp to find it deserted, after failing to reach the ODA team he and his team set out to find where his unit had gone, and as time went on, only Fred was alive. A few days after his last man, ironically the TACP, died, Fred stumbled upon a compound with gate guards, and walked in, finding the remaining NATO forces.
