John was a part of the Wounded Warrior program, Veterans Medical Center, Madison, WI.

John earned a Bachelors degree in History from University of Minnesota in 1991 and a Master of Science in Strategic Intelligence from Defense Intelligence Agency's Joint Military Intelligence College, Bolling Air Force Base, Washington, D.C. in 1994.
