Elliott graduated from Jacobs HS in 2009, and was all set to attend college in the fall. He decided to enlist instead, and attend college later. After graduating from basic at Fort Benning, Georgia, he earned his jump school title there. He was then stationed in Fort Knox, Kentucky. He deployed for Afghanistan and served with the infantry in a group called Ramrod. During that time he earned the rank of army specialist.

He intends to leave the military after 3 years, 3 month, and attend college and earn a degree in fire/paramedic studies. He has loved his time in the military, and is happy he made the decision to serve before attending college. He feels that the military has developed him into the person ready to face anything the future has to offer. His interests are mixed martial arts, drumming and hunting.
