+ − Biography
Jonathan Larkin has spent virtually his entire life in Arizona- when he was not stationed overseas as a Marine. In 2003 he graduated from Dobson High School in Mesa where, like so many young men, he was affected by the events of September 11th and the attack on the United States.
At the beginning of his senior year, Jonathan enlisted in the Marine Corps and was immediately promoted to private first class for excelling in his high school JROTC program. Shortly after the completion of his Marine training, he was stationed in Okinawa, Japan. There he was quickly reassigned to the USS Essex, the ship that would eventually be an integral participant in the invasion of Fallujah, Iraq. It was a nine-month operation and the mission was to bring safety to Iraq's citizens so they could have their first democratic election.
Upon completion of that mission, Jonathan was sent to the Philippines where he volunteered for a humanitarian mission to restore an elementary school.
After a long tour of duty, he returned home and was stationed at the Marine air base in Yuma. However, he was deployed again. He went back to Iraq where he ran security patrols near the Ala-sad airbase.
Jonathan was discharged as a decorated Marine in 2007 and started college. He has made Glendale his home and works as a union pharmacy technician for Fry's Food Store.
