James O'Neill was a member of the Army Ranger Wing, the special operations branch of the Irish Defence Forces. He and other members of the ARW cooperated with other special forces, such as the British SAS, US Navy SEALs, and Task Force 141, during World War 3.
James O'Neill was born on July 6, 1983, in Waterford, Ireland. From an early age, he became infatuated with the military, mostly due to the stories his grandfather told him about his service in the Irish Army. He had served in the Congo during the Congo Crisis and was one of the 150 Irishmen at Jadotville when it was attacked in 1961. James's grandfathers vivid tales of how he and his friends fought off the attacking force and of how he was captured and eventually released inspired O'Neill, instilling in him the goal of joining the Irish Army when he was old enough. This dream was fulfilled in 2002 when he joined the Army and earned the rank of ceannaire (corporal).
In 2003, Irish peacekeepers, including O'Neill, were sent to Liberia. This was where O'Neill would see his first action.
