My name is Blake Kozak, I am 29 years old. Born in 1990 and was raised in Springfield, MO. I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps at age 19. I took part in the battle of Chernarus back in 2009 with the 27th MEU. I decided to come back to Chernarus after the war for in search of the love of my life Elena. Elena Deligioz, was the most beautiful woman I've ever laid my eyes on. She was 18 When I was in the battle, she saved my life from a Russian APC by using just a grenade and a shovel. It was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen in my life. Before I left Chernarus, she made me promise to her to come back to and marry her. Which is exactly what I did. We got married on the Island of Tanoa and had a beautiful honey moon. We later had a beautiful daughter named Sommer . We decided to move back to her homeland 3 years later where we lived in the city of Berezino. I was called back to the military for a small development group called CTRG. We were supposed to be deployed to an Island called Altis in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. But the Op was postponed for another decade due to insufficient resources. Elena was furious that I was even considering going back to the military. But I re-assured her that I'd promise to come back to her and Sommer if I ever had to go back. Elena gave me an ultimatum between my family or the military. I decided to request my Honorable Discharge and stay with her. In the winter of 2018 I began hunting the wildlife of Cherno in order to bring home food for my family. My new best friend Joey who owned a small Deli shop in New Jersey met in a Bar Chernogorsk and instantly became friends. He had told me he was here for a short time to meet up with his sister to bring her back to the states. In the coming months we found out that there was a small outbreak of a virus which lead to chaos and multiple deaths across Chernarus. Its been one full year and Joey and I cant seem to find anyone of each others family members. There's been rumors that multiple ships left Chernarus days after the events of the outbreak. All communications from the outside world has been cut off, and Joey and I are in search of any evidence of our family leaving the island at the beginning of the outbreak and will stop at nothing until we find our family.
