A native of New Iberia, Aaron was born on March 7, 1986. He attended New Iberia Senior High before pursuing higher education at the University of Louisiana Lafayette and McNeese State University.

For his exemplary service, he received a special commendation from former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates. He then transferred to Norfolk, VA, where he worked as an Aviation Technician and had the opportunity to work on various aircrafts like the E-2C Hawkeye.
