3 years before the outbreak i was apart of a private military in Afghanistan hunting the Taliban. I was injured in a IED explosion. lucky i survived only loosing a kidney and dealing with a lot of shrapnel. i recovered and left the private military life for a simple life traveling and seeing everything that i wanted to see. As i was traveling through Europe i saw news of the virus warning and that the CDC put out about Chernarus. I had to get there because my brother had just moved there. I got on the first flight i could. Little did i know it was the last one to go there. When we landed there were people at the gates af the airport trying to get passed the military blockade and get on our plane. The military came boarded and demanded everyone but the pilates off at gunpoint. They were taking off and a mass explosion came from the rear of it and it went down toward a city. That was the last thing i saw before everything went black.
