Early life

Gregory Francis was born in Saint Croix on August 30, 1951, to Olric Francis and Hyacinth Wilson-Francis.[2] He is one of seven siblings, the others of whom are Olrick, Herbert, Kathleen, Howard, Milton, Kenneth, and Arthur.[2]

Francis attended Christiansted Grammar School, Christiansted High School and Saint Croix Central High School.[1] He received a paralegal certificate from the University of the Virgin Islands in 1984 while serving in the United States Army.[1]

Military career

Francis moved to New York after graduation from high school, where he planned to attend a trade school.[1] However, because of a one-year residency requirement for the school, Francis enlisted in the United States Army instead.[1]

Francis would spend 27 years in the Army. He served as a Command Program Support Specialist, Supervisory Military Personal Specialist and a Recruiting and Retention Manager.[1] He was stationed in Germany, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands during his military career.[1]
