Staff Sergeant Zoey Giampaolo - Blackhawk Helicopter crewmember and U.S. Air Force active duty, assigned to NATO as part of the fleet in the Green Sea. Her helicopter was assigned to shuttle cleared refugees out of secure zones in Chenarus as the CDF and NATO defensive lines began to falter. Unfortunately, panic overtook the crowd as Sgt. Giampaolo's helicopter attempted to leave the ground for the last time and they swarmed the vehicle. It was overloaded as it attempted to get airborne, resulting in it crashing back down to the ground and killing most of those attempting to scramble on in the first place. Zoey was wounded with shrapnel in the arm but her crew helped her escape the wreckage. During this time, the defensive lines began to break, only adding to the panic and confusion. She was separated from her fellow airmen and left to survive on her own.
Having managed to hide in an abandoned house and rest while her arm healed, Zoey set off into what was left of Chernarus in search of her crew. She is certain that at least some of them may still be alive and surviving in the wilderness.
