dmjohnston entered the New World on a cold November morning, the 21st of the month in 2009. After an extensive military career, he retired for what he considered to be a permanent change.
Near Day 2000, DMJ rose from the grave, dusting off his now dirty combat boots, and returning to TC in a wave of terror and change.
Rumor has it that when DMJ smiles (as rare as it is) it has the power to kill kittens.
DMJ, as he is known to many fellow citizens, spent a year in various positions in the Training Corps before leaving his post as a Brigadier General in command of the 1st Division for a fresh start in the Calvary.
His Cavalry career was a fast paced rise to officership. He served as the Commanding Officer of 1st Squadron, 11th ACR and the Assistant S2.
When Calvary was merged back into the Army, DMJ returned to TC as the 1st Division XO and Senior S6, but this visit did not last long as he retired fully from the military and returned home to the US to die peacefully.
DMJ's Spirit continued to visit TC from time to time, usually to fix the trackers or retrieve some of his cocaine stash.
Upon his return from the dead, he resumed his duties as the 1st Division Commanding Officer, as well as a Senior Staff Officer. He again left TC after the Proteus Presidential victory.
Within a couple of days, DMJ was offered a position in the US Armed Forces, commanding the Fighter Wing of the Air Force.

When DMJ's fortunes led him to serve as the Secretary of Defense for Josh Frost, he named Hale26 as acting Commander but stayed on to run the accounting and continue the work he had started in the massive overhaul of the Air Force.
Pinned in the midst of the TWO invasions, Presidential hopeful Paul Proteus announced his bid for the office in July of 2013. DMJ was a firm supporter of Paul's campaign, both as a fellow Federalist, and as a respecter of people whose names rhyme with their job title. He thus secured a position in the Proteus cabinet as a Deputy Secretary of Defense, launching his political career: a move he never expected to make.
When Secretary of Defense Deificus retired near the end of the term, DMJ stepped up as the acting SoD. During this time, he had also received offers from three presidential hopefuls for a job as their Secretary of Defense. Ultimately, none of these candidates was elected, but DMJ was able to stay on as a Deputy SoD under Darkmantle in the 5th Oblige administration.
After spending three months observing the congressional discussions and having opinions he withheld on subjects outside of his purview in the DoD, DMJ made his first run for Congress as part of the 70th Congress. Running alongside MazzyCat, and others in the WTP primary, he secured the 4th seat in the primary and made it into Congress during the official election., Valiant Thor,
Within days of this victory, DMJ was approached by Josh Frost regarding his return to the White House and invited him to serve as the cat's Secretary of Defense. DMJ of course accepted, and in a mostly uncontested run for Frost, the reigns of USAF shifted to DMJ.
For the first time in months, the Presidential Race for the November 2013 Election contained 5 candidates from 5 different parties. DMJ was among them, representing the We The People Party. Ultimately, with RL knocking at the door and crying late at night, it was not meant to be, with NewAzazel securing the victory, and DMJ bringing in just over 11% of the vote. He was however asked to stay on for another term as Secretary of Defense under the new President.
At the start of the 72nd Congress, DMJ's third consecutive term, he decided to run for Speaker of the House, against Henry Pfeiffer Arundel and Dr Luis Sentieiro. DLS ultimately won the election and offered DMJ a position as one of his Deputy Speakers.
DMJ made another run for Speaker in his 4th Congressional term, receiving the most votes in the initial polls, but ultimately falling to Kortanul in the run-off.
