Personal History

Youth

 

Growing up on Mars, Owen wanted something more than the on going Terra-forming type work. His schooling never was the best, graduating near the bottom of his class. He saw the Marines as a way to get away from Mars and try out something different. As a youth he was a bit of a trouble maker, but he found the Marines gave him a sense of purpose and a structured life he missed in his younger days.

 

Starfleet Marine Corps

He took to the traditions of the Corps and the camaraderie of the members like a duck to water. He had always been active and athletic and in the Marines he excelled in all physical competitions. Weapons training came quite easily too. Military schools were always a bit of a challenge, but he threw himself into the work as best he could. His tours included combat against both Cardassians and Dominion forces both aboard ships and planets. During the Dominion War he and a Marine Detachment were assigned to a Klingon ship where he found a common bond of honor among the alien warriors. It was this meeting and subsequent combat along side these Klingons that pushed him to make the Marines his life.

Marriage

In the middle of all that, he met his future wife Gwen. She was stationed on Star Base 37 as a Communications Specialist for the Marine unit there. As said in the Marines, "If the Marines wanted you to have a family, you would be issued one." Since Gwen was and still is a Marine, he figured that it was close enough. They married in 2374 where he almost immediately shipped out aboard the USS Ticonderoga.
