My name is William Goodwin I'm a US Marinebased out of Camp Pendleton
I was born in Bristol and grew up with 4 brothers my mother was an American and my dad was British, apart of the Royal Marines. After his death in iraq by a ISIS fighter we moved to the US back to my mothers hometown in sacramento. Me and my 4 brothers always wanted to grow up like my farther and serve, so myy Brothers and i signed up for the Marines as soon as we turned 18, We all went through bootcamp and basic training in 2016 at the San Diego recruit depot where upon completion I was assigned to the 5th Marine regiment. However in july I was told I was going to be deployed due to some viral outbreak in Chernarus. Two thirds of 2nd battalion landed on Chernarus, with orders to secure the town of Elektrozavodsk, alongside reinforcing and securing other facilities in the region. During the early morning of July 18th the town errupted, crowds were rioting and people started literally eating eachother. We still don't really know what is going on but that morning is something I will never forget. My company became trapped inside Elektro high school, as blood covered men and woman thre themselves repeatedly at the doors trying to break in. My sergeant was bitten by an old lady and I one by one, my friends started falling. I might be the only one that made it out of their alive. I attempted to retreat back to our defensive lines south of the town, but there was little there but lotted bodies and debris. Even the command post was ransacked. I started to head inland away from the town when I stumbled across a squad of Marines from Echo company, turns out their captain is still alive and trying to regroup with Golf Company. The guys looked as if they had seeen worse things than me, hell they almost shot me, but man am I glad to not be alone out here.
