John Etterlee is a thriller author and retired U.S. Army combat Veteran. Born in Augusta, Georgia, he joined the United States Army in 2001, shortly after the attacks of September 11th, and served multiple tours overseas before being medically retired in 2013. Having been to many countries, the Army really opened his eyes to different cultures around the world and inspired many of the books that he has in the works.
John’s longest deployment was a thirteen-month tour to southeastern Baghdad with 2-30 Infantry, 4th Brigade, 10th Mountain Division from 2007 to 2009. This was by far his toughest. Having been in two IED blasts himself, his unit also came under indirect mortar fire, plus rocket and RPG fire on a regular basis. John lost a few friends during that tour.
