Daniel Edmond Locke is a U.S. Army special operator in an elite unit of ultra top-secret intelligence gatherers.
Danny was born and raised in Augusta, Georgia. Right out of high school, he enlisted in the United States Army. Danny decided to become a U.S. Army Ranger. After completing basic combat training and then infantry advanced individual training at the U.S. Army Infantry School at Fort Benning, he stayed at Fort Benning and went on to the U.S. Army Airborne School. Upon completing airborne training and earning the Basic Parachutist Badge, Danny went through Ranger indoctrination training and was then assigned to the 2nd Ranger Battalion. He became a fire team leader soon after earning the Ranger Tab at the U.S. Army Ranger School. Danny later earned the Air Assault Badge at the U.S. Army Air Assault School. Shortly afterwards, he earned the Expert Infantryman Badge. Following that, Danny attended the U.S. Army Pathfinder School.
A little while after becoming a squad leader, he attended the Special Forces Assessment and Selection Course. Upon its successful completion, Danny went through the Special Forces Qualification Course and then joined the United States Army Special Forces as a special forces weapons sergeant in the 3rd Battalion, 1st Special Forces Group. He eventually rose to the position of a senior weapons sergeant and then an operations and intelligence sergeant after his promotion to sergeant First Class. Soon after being promoted to Master Sergeant, Danny became a detachment operations sergeant. At some point, his extraordinary record as a special forces team sergeant caught the attention of several officials in the Joint Special Operations Command. Danny was invited to apply to join the Intelligence Support Activity. Specifically, he was invited into the Direct Action Quick Response Division, which is a specialized detachment within the ISA.
Also known as Gray Fox or Centra Spike, the Intelligence Support Activity is an elite and ultra-clandestine U.S. Army special operations unit responsible for collecting actionable intelligence in advance of missions by other U.S. special operations forces, especially counterterrorist operations. The teams of the Direct Action Quick Response Division focus on more selective, secretive and high-stakes operations than the rest of the Intelligence Support Activity. The division is mobile, and it answers to The White House alone. The teams in the Direct Action Quick Response Division handle operations in two categories: cleaning and fixing botched operations, and precision intelligence-oriented special operations.
Danny accepted the offer and applied to join the Intelligence Support Activity. After completing the ISA selection and training process, he joined the ISA as a Direct Action Quick Response Division team member. A year later, Danny was elevated to the position of assistant team leader. A year after that, he attended the Sergeants Major Course at the Sergeants Major Academy and was subsequently promoted to Sergeant Major. Danny was then made a team leader. He leads Team Omaha, the Direct Action Quick Response Division's field operations contingent.
In his capacity as an Intelligence Support Activity team leader, Sergeant Major Danny Locke commands such 'hot' engagements as snatch and grab jobs, targeted killings, and battlefield preparations.
