George Lewis Klein was born on November 4, 1966, in Harlan, IA. He graduated in 1985 from Denison High School in Denison, IA. George went straight to Basic and AIT training with the Iowa National Guard where he served multiple enlistments and excelled as a Bradley Fighting Vehicle mechanic. George held several jobs throughout his life but none he enjoyed more than when he was in the solitude of the forest felling trees.
