My name is Caleb Bauer, and I used to be a United States Marine from the 1st Marine Division, or at least that is what I used to be. I can still remember the day it all started. We received our last orders a few hours before the outbreak went global. We were deployed to this former soviet shithole called Chernarus. At the time I figured this was some basic operation, to infiltrate a soviet bloc and retrieve whatever we could to help in the war effort, but boy was I wrong. The second we landed on the airfield I knew something was wrong. We got out of our helicopter and as soon as it took off we saw a horde of what we thought were civilians running towards us. We went into a skirmish line and started marching towards the civilians. As they got closer we realized that these were not any ordinary people. They suddenly broke towards a fellow soldier and appeared to rip the flesh off of his body. Some of my men started to vomit, and others decided to open fire on the horde. After my unit was devoured piece by piece, I decided to run for my life. I then finally found shelter on the Air Traffic Control Tower. This country of Chernarus is truly the stuff of nightmares. Somehow I will find a way out of this godforsaken country, and if I can’t leave I will form a community of like minded individuals in hopes of reforming civilization. After this community is built, we will try to cure my infected comrades and other former Chernarus civilians.
