Personal History Born on the remote colony of Brandenberg, Philip grew up in a very close knit family that was brought together more by marriage than biology. Jadwiga, his biological mother, died in an automobile accident, leaving his father to raise three year old Philip and his older sister Olenka for five years until he married the tempestuous and never boring Alexandra Hildebrand. She loved her two step-children as much as her son by Philip's father, and the quiet elder Kazmierski was just the balance Ms. Hildebrand needed.
When he turned eighteen, he became the latest in a long line of Kazmierskis to enter the military. He had been fed a steady diet of family history, starting with his several times great-grandfather, who had served with the Free Polish Air Force during World War II, on down to himself enlisting in the Starfleet Marine Corps. His father and a recruiter had discussed with him the possibility of going to Starfleet Academy, but all of them realized that it would probably not be a good idea due to Philip's handicap.
Philip did quite well in basic training, excelling with the squad support weapon. He was truly put to the test two years later when his platoon was sent to rescue a Starfleet expedition that had run into trouble on the planet Snowball. While the majority of the combat was with local fauna, the horrific cold and snow put the entire platoon to the test. However, the expedition was rescued with only one casualty, and Philip was promoted to Corporal.
That was not the case with the Villalobos. Six months into their cruise, the ship ran into two Kzinti warships whose Marines boarded and practically made mincemeat of the crew. The Villalobos was rescued, but not before being severely damaged and losing almost half of its crew.
