Sgt. Nolan Forbes, is a seasoned Marine originally from Nebraska, USA. He was born in 1990 to a single mother in a small town in the center of Nebraska. Even though his parents were separated around the age of 7 he began to see his father on the weekends, its from his fathers side of the family that he began to learn about the military and its history and legacy.
He joined the Corps in 2008 and by 2009 he found himself on his first deployment with the 27th MEU in the Green Sea. LCpl Forbes participated in the invasion and the short lived counter-insurgency operations in Chernarus, after US forces were forced out of the country Forbes and his company were tasked with garrisoning Utes and running TRAP operations off the island until the end of their deployment. When the deployment wrapped up Forbes and the rest of the Marines assigned to the 27th MEU were replaced and returned home to 29 Palms, CA. While in 29 Palms training for their next deployment Forbes managed to pick up the rank of Cpl just before his second pump this second deployment was to Afghanistan in 2010-2011, Cpl Forbes and his fellow Marines of 3/7 fought in the Battle of Sangin. When they returned back to the States Forbes reenlisted and was promoted to Sergeant shortly after. From 2012-2016 Forbes served with 1/7 doing 2 more deployments to Afghanistan. Towards the end of 2016 Sgt. Forbes reenlisted again and decided to go into MSG (Marine Security Guard) as a B-billet in hopes it would help him pick up SSgt. After completing the MSG school house Forbes was assigned to the US Embassy in Novigrad, Chernarus in March of 2017. In the months leading up to the outbreak in addition to his regular duties Forbes also spent much of his free time exploring the country learning a little of the language and local customs, As the outbreak quickly began to spread in the first week the US Embassy in Novigrad was evacuated and Sgt. Forbes and the other Marines of the MSG force were assigned to the Marine garrison on Utes. By week 2 Forbes found himself again on mainland Chernarus assisting with the defense of Elektrozavodsk, but the overwhelming force of the infected was too much for the men of the the US Marines, Army, and those remaining of the CDF. As the infected began to overrun Elektro Forbes and a few other Marines found themselves cut off from the main force and sought shelter in the basement of a nearby home, there they weathered out the onslaught of the undead and the devastating storm that hit. By the morning of the 24th only one other Marine Cpl McKinley, was left standing beside the Sgt. Forbes going forward from that point would be mainly be looking for some way to make his way back home to the US or atleast get some news of how theyre handling the infection, but while he's in Chernarus he would act as a protector, assisting and helping those in need in any way he can.
