He graduated from Scranton Preparatory School and subsequently enrolled in the United States Naval Academy in 1999 . Upon graduation, he was assigned as an infantry officer in the United States Marine Corps, eventually achieving the rank of captain. Stann and his unit held out for six days, under heavy attack, while coordinating air and tank support that eventually allowed them to be relieved on May 14, 2005. Stann was also the commanding officer in the 8th Marine Regiment Headquarters Company while continuing to fight in the WEC. He attributes his success in mixed martial arts to the foundation he learned while training at the Marine Corps Martial Arts Center for Excellence in Quantico, Virginia and the explosiveness and powerlifting exercises he learned while playing football.
