Background

If you are reading this, then I wish you the best of luck.  I'll start from the beginning.  My name is Alexander, and at the time of writing this I believe I am now 34 years old.  I was a contractor sent to Chernaurus to help rebuild some of its infrastructure after the civil war.  Three years in, the company I worked for had recalled all but a few of us.  They wanted some of us to stay behind so we could manage the local staff we had hired at the power plant near the town of Solnichniy.  I made the best of my time in this country, and things were going well.  I met a local woman named Tatiana, and we hit it off almost immediately.  After a year of dating, we got an apartment together in the city of Berezino.  We eventually married and bought a house with a picket fence around the yard.  Tati was pregnant with our first child a few months later, and life was good. 

A few years later, tensions started to rise in the region again, and Tatiana begged me to take her and our son away, back to the United States.  I tried to reassure her that everything was fine, my contracting firm would always tell us when a region had become "Red" or too hostile.  They had yet to do so, therefore, things would probably blow over.  Then the news reports came in of a bombing raid and military hostilities along the northern border.  I woke Tatiana and our son, AJ in the middle of the night and we drove south along the coastal road.  My firm had an office in Chernogorsk, and from there I could secure passage out of the country for all three of us.  

Once we reached the southern coast, the traffic outside of Elektrozovodsk was at a standstill for over an hour, so I decided to take my family on foot the rest of the journey.  What should have only been a one hour walk, turned into an overnight queue at a checkpoint.  It seems everyone else who was in the traffic jam had the same idea.  Once we were near the front of the queue, I noticed the soldiers were wearing US uniforms.  I informed one of the soldiers that I was a United States citizen, and I wanted to bring my family home.  I showed my credentials, and I was escorted to a waiting area that had been set up in a guard post of sorts.  That's when I heard the screams and the gunshots.  I gave my wife my handgun and the emergency supplies we had packed and brought with us and told her to stay put.  I was going to make a run for Chernogorsk and come back for her and our son.  The Army would keep them safe.  How wrong I was.

I can't remember how long it's been since that day, but please if you see a woman named Tatiana Richards with a young boy named Alexander or AJ, tell them I'm still out here looking for them.  Tell them I go to the guard station in Elektrozovodsk every other day.  I love them both dearly, and I'm so sorry that I ever left them there.
