Anton grew up in Uppsala about 50 Km along the E4 north of Stockholm. His father was a professor of Agrarian Science at the Uppsala University and his mother cared for the house, Anton and his two sisters, Elsa and Klara. When Anton turned 30, his father died of a heart attack on his mother's birthday. That was over three years ago. The death of his father coupled with the constant separation from his family through military service has left him somewhat estranged from his mother and sisters. He doesn't contact them much. In fact, he hasn't seen either of them since his father's funeral.
As a boy, Anton used to enjoy hunting with his father. This was one of the few positive memories Anton has savored from childhood. It was during these hunting trips that he really got to know his father. They bonded during these trips and the boy learned a lot from the older Rapp.
Anton Rapp was drafted into the Swedish Army after his 18th birthday deferred to the summer of 1997. He served initially as an artilleryman with the Swedish Artillery Regiment. This was not exciting enough for Anton. He then went to the Fallskärmsjägarna (Parachute Rangers, FJS) and eventually found his way to the Särskilda Skyddsgruppen (Special Protection Group, SSG). The SSG is the Swedish equivalent to the British 22nd SAS Regiment or the American Delta; specializing in counter terrorism operations. In 2011, the SSG was integrated with the Särskilda Inhämtningsgruppen (Special Reconnaissance Group, SIG) to form the Särskilda Operationsgruppen (Special Operations Group, SOG). In 2012, Anton Rapp left the Swedish SOG with the intention of working for the Division.
While in the military, Anton studied the Swedish Army's version of Taekwondo and recently received his 1st degree black belt in the discipline. While in the SSG, Anton was wounded in action during a fight with Taliban in eastern Afghanistan. He lost his left pinkie finger during the encounter. Anton made it out of Chad uninjured even though he and his comrades were in several firefights during the EUFOR deployment.
Anton rose to the rank of Sergeant Major (E-8) in the Swedish Army.
