[DETAILED STATS]

 Appearance:
Jack stands at average height and build, with his black hair kept just shy of being out of regulation. His brown eyes seem to be quite keen, and Jack is just as ready with a grin as he is a frown.

 Personality:
Despite being a fighter pilot, Jack does not display the usual cocksure attitude found in most pilots, rather favoring a more laid back demeanor. He tends to say what is on his mind as soon as it hits him, which can get him into trouble, but when in the presence of superiors, he does try to filter himself. In the air, Jack tries to be a consumate professional, but his priority is ensuring everyone in his flight makes it back in one piece.
   

Hobbies/Interests:
Off-duty, Jack spends time with his wife, often times going out hiking or diving with her. Other times, he'll spend his time working on classic cars, his current project being a 1973 Ford XB GT Falcon Hardtop (the same style car used in the Mad Max series), which Jack hopes to import back to the United States at the conclusion of his time in Australia. He also enjoys spending time with his friends, overall enjoying a decent social life.

 Personal History:
 Jack Pierce was born on base at Naval Air Station Cecil Field, in Jacksonville Florida. His father was a Naval Aviator, and his mother was a defense lawyer with the Navy Judge Advocate General. After his younger sister was born, Jack's father and mother retired from the Navy, with the family resettling in St. Louis, Missouri. Hoping to follow his father's footsteps, Jack pursued every opportunity to become a Naval Aviator himself, securing a Navy ROTC scholarship to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. While attending school at Daytona Beach, Jack met his wife-to-be, a Marine cadet by the name of Adrianna Brach. Though the two of them had a rivalry, it was all friendly and they remained close friends until being separated by the military.

During advanced training, Jack earned his callsign "Hawk" due to a birdstrike during a cross-country flight. He managed to safely land his T-45A trainer, and learned later that he had hit, to the chagrin of environmentalists, a hawk. Despite this incident, Jack passed his flight training and was assigned to a Pacific Fleet replenishment squadron, before finally being deployed to his first operational squadron. It was at Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni that Jack and Adrianna were reunited. They were married in 2013, though their respective duties kept them somewhat apart after returning to the United States, as Jack was assigned to Naval Air Station Lemoore, and Adrianna was assigned to a squadron at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. With that, they took to a plan and both applied to an officer exchange program with the Royal Australian Air Force, and due to clerical oversight, were both granted a slot within No. 1 Squadron in 2016. Despite their superiors finding out afterwards, it was decided it was more work than it was worth to separate them.

2LT Haley Pierce, USAF - Younger Sister - Close Relationship
CAPT Adrianna "AJ" Pierce, USMC - Wife
