Sgt. Davie Nguyen was a U.S. Marine Helicopter Crew Chief on a UH-1Y Venom from the USS America (LHA-6) stationed in Rota, Spain. The ship was a part of Task Force 61, the amphibious assault force in Europe and the Mediterranean Sea for the United States Sixth Fleet. In June of 2017, Davie was in his 5th month on deployment with the fleet when he received news that a viral outbreak had occurred in Chernarus. He heard rumors on his ship that this was a new type of virus that had never been seen before. Soon after, his ship received orders from the fleet to move into the area along with the Task Force to support and stabilize the region. On July 17th, Task Force 61 entered the Green Sea along with other U.S. and NATO forces. The role of Task Force 61 was to patrol the coastline of Chernarus and neighboring countries. Immediately after entering the region, Davie's helicopter was sent out to patrol the coast of Chernarus non-stop, only to return to refuel after several hours as other helicopters rotated patrol shifts with each other. On the night of the 21st, during a routine patrol, a massive storm suddenly rolled through the whole area and Davie's helicopter was caught in the middle of it. The storm caused massive interference and Davie's helicopter had lost all radio communication. Caught over the water, the pilots attempted to return towards the open sea to escape the rough storm conditions. Gusts of wind and rain slammed the helicopter and threw it around effortlessly. After several minutes of attempting to maneuver through the storm, the helicopter was still unable to find its way out. Suddenly, the twin engines of the helicopter gave out and the pilots began loosing control. With the helicopter still a few hundred meters the air, the nose of the helicopter began to pitch violently up and down as the air currents and wind gusts started to take in down. The helicopter began loosing altitude fast and was accelerating towards the water below. Just before impact, a massive wave of sea water came up and slammed into the side of the helicopter throwing Davie out of his restraints and away from the helicopter, knocking him unconscious. Davie's body was now floating in the water alone without the helicopter or the rest of his crew anywhere to be seen and he slowly drifts towards the coast.
