Jack Livingstone is the author of his U.S. Military News column, planning upon joining the U.S. Military himself one day. He was born on September 20th and currently lives on a NATO base in Münster, Germany with his four siblings. He has lived in many places around the world, including Fort Wayne, Indiana, Washington D.C., Stuttgart, Germany, and Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. He enjoys drawing maps of castles and blueprints of ships, building with Lego bricks, swimming, playing Minecraft and numerous board games. He is in tenth grade, and this is his second year at The Potter’s School, having previously taken Russian and Biology. He likes American football as well as British football (soccer) and baseball; he also enjoys reading Harry Potter, and his favorite films are Dunkirk and Cool Runnings. He enjoys mac and cheese, numerous fruits, and chocolate chip cookies, has invented his own language, is an ISTJ, and his ancestry goes back to Sweden, Denmark, and Scotland.
As his chosen topic to write about should prove, he loves the Military. As a military brat, he enjoys drawing U.S. Navy ships, and reading books about the U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard, and if he could have a conversation with any person, dead or alive, he would choose to speak to John Paul Jones, one of the first U.S. Navy Commanders. He plans to go to either West Point, the Naval Academy, or the Coastguard Academy when he finishes high school and plans to either be a U.S. Army Armor officer, U.S. Navy Sailor, or aU.S. Coastguardsman, respectively. He is very proud of his love for the Military and will stand up for it if anybody says anything against it. Jack is already part of the Armed Forces at heart and is looking forward to writing the U.S. Military column!
