Lonetree enlisted in the army for the Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) Infantry, 11B. During weapons qualification training, he displayed a natural ability for handling all types of weapons, but he specifically excelled during rifle qualification, in which he scored perfectly by hitting all targets at all ranges. After graduating basic, advanced individual, and airborne training at Fort Benning, Georgia, Lonetree was reassigned to Fort Bragg, North Carolina, with the 82nd Airborne Division, where he honed his field skills as an airborne infantryman and quickly worked his way up from an infantry platoon to the elite Long Range Reconnaissance Company. While he was there, Lonetree rose to the rank of sergeant, and he became keenly interested in joining Special Forces. He applied, and he was accepted for the Special Forces Qualification Course at the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center at Fort Bragg and was selected for training as a Special Forces Weapons Sergeant for the MOS Infantry, 18B.

Lonetree's dedication and finely tuned field skills led to his selection as Distinguished Honor Graduate of his course. He was assigned to a Special Forces Operational Detachment - Alpha (SFODA) in the 10th Special Forces Group, Fort Carson, Colorado. Due to his natural skills and expert marksmanship, he was selected for training at the Special Operations Target Interdiction Course (SOTIC), the sniper school for Special Forces. In battle, Lonetree distinguished himself during Stabilization Force (SFOR) in Bosnia-Herzegovina while he conducted counter-sniper missions. Because of this, Delta Force recruiters took notice of his abilities and approached him about joining their ranks.

Lonetree never likes to make small talk during missions, as he firmly believes that there is no more serious a job than his. Even veteran soldiers are impressed at how stoic this sniper can be while he's under heavy fire.
