CTTC Christian M. Pike was born in Berlin, Germany, in 1981, thousands of miles from American shores, but he discovered at an early age he was part of a family that had a distinguished legacy of service within the United States military.  His maternal grandfather had served in the Navy in World War II.  His uncle, who became a major influence in his life, retired as a colonel in the Green Berets.  Finally, and perhaps most importantly, his mother Diana spent over a decade in the U.S. Army’s cryptologic service.
