(THE FOLLOWING BACKSTORY IS A HEAVY WORK IN PROGRESS)
Alexander Wolf was born in Quantico, Virginia in 1988. Alexander was born into a military family, his father a Captain in the United States Marine Corps when he was born, now a Colonel at his current age of 29. Being born into a military family had it’s hardships; his father was not always there for him when he needed to be. Because of the time constraint of the military, Alexander was typically around his mother most of his life. His mom would always smile and remind him that his dad was serving his country proudly and that if he wasn’t around that it was for good reason, for the protection of not only his family, but of all of those in the United States. Of course, things weren’t always that dire, but as a little kid those words burned into Alexander’s young mind, painting his dad as more a hero than someone who wasn’t simply around due to time constraints. The first tour his father had been assigned to, of which he could remember, was in 2001 when staging began for the labeled ‘War on Terrorism’ in Afghanistan. By this time, Alexander was 13 years old and wouldn’t see his father again until he was 17. At this age, Alexander was fully able to start and understand his father’s duties. Throughout high school, Alexander aspired to be in perfect shape, staying in sports through the four years, mainly participating in part of the school’s track team. By the time Alexander was through high school, he realized that he didn’t want to just enlist in the USMC, but he wanted to be in an officer’s role as was his father. Very shortly after graduating, Alexander got in contact with an Officer Selection Officer (OSO) and found a college as well as a study for his Bachelor’s program. Alexander ended up going to the University of Virginia in Charlottesville where he got a Bachelor's in Security & Justice, learning about the many conflicts around the world.
After graduating at the age of 23, Alexander returned home to complete his preliminary training and go through Officer Candidate School, a 10-week program for recent college graduates. Alexander graduated and was appointed Second Lieutenant and pushed on to The Basic School (TBS) for further training before being assigned his MOS, that being an 0301 Basic Infantry Officer. After all preliminary and basic training was completed, Alexander assumed command of a small reserve infantry platoon and was moved to company location in Buffalo, New York. Alexander found his first deployment shortly after being assigned in 2011 to Afghanistan and made his way back to the United States in 2013, his first and only tour to that date lasting only two years. Alexander acquired rank of First Lieutenant on return, shifting his responsibilities to multiple platoons as well as becoming the executive officer to his respective Captain.
