History: (Captain America VIII#695 (fb)) - While living in Tallahassee, John Garcia was rescued from a burning building by Captain America and was awestruck upon seeing the burned and blackened Captain America run back inside the building to save others.

(Captain America VIII#695) - Eight years later, John traveled to Captain America, Nebraska and spoke at the annual Captain America Celebration about his past encounter with Cap and how it had inspired him to become a first responder.
