After graduating, he joined the Army and became Army Specialist as a member of the 82nd Airborne Division. During his four years of service in the military, he was assigned 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 1st Battalion, reflagged into 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment 3rd Battalion and served for two years with the Florida National Guard.

He received the following awards while still in service in the Army: Army Commendation Medal, Infantryman Badge, Good Conduct Medal, Parachutist Badge, Expeditionary Medal, National Defense Service Medal, and Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal.

After his service in the military, he joined college, studied marine biology, and graduated with an associate degree. He, however, discovered marine biology would not pay that well and became a database manager to support his family (wife and two daughters). The idea of writing fiction sparked in 1999 and wrote a story about alien invasion and the response by the military. He named the novel A Hymn Before Battle. He submitted the book to Jim Bean-a publisher, but the novel was initially rejected. Later Jim Baen bought the book and soon sold thousands of copies globally. This made John Ringo quit his database management job and became a full-time writer. Currently, Ringo has written and co-written over 46 novels. Now, he is working with a film producer in adapting three of his books; Princess of Wand, Ghost and A Hymn Before Battle for filming. John Ringo currently lives in Chattanooga, TN.

John Ringo has authored five different novel series which are: Posleen War series, Troy Rising Series, Looking Glass Series, The Council War series, and the Paladin of Shadows series.
