John sterling always loved seeing the men in the military and always said he wanted to be a soldier since the day he could speak. He grew up in a well sought after home with both parents in the middle to high class, therefore they did quite well and his father had served in the military as well. Sterling attended all his schooling and actually graduated 1 year early and was able to get his degree in information technology before shipping off to the military. He served for 4 years in the US Army and loved every second of it, his squad actually made it out with almost all of the soldiers that were in it. After being discharged on medical release he was sad in the beginning because he saw his squad members as a brotherhood and when he wasn't with them he just didn't feel right. Throughout high school John dated many girls as he was known as the stud at his high school. Though he had been very into that style of life then he soon realized that he needed to grow up and get his life together before looking to settle down with a girl as he didn't see a steady future with that idea because he was interested in the military. After serving his time he came back to the United States and still wasn't really ready to settle down with one girl and thought he needed to go on a vacation again and set out for Chernarus, and so he did. He had planned to do many things while here at Chernarus as he found a flyer in the first place and that is what led him to want to go to this beautiful land. On his adventure here in Chernarus he did many things that he had set out to do with the travel company but soon he was about to have his vacation turned into a war zone like he had never been trained for before.
