James never really liked the water, the thought of trillions and trillions of unseen microbes some that actually ate human brain matter and others completely harmless to your bodies biology floating around the same water that he was now swimming though in the middle of the night weighted on the back of his mind. He wondered if his teammates thought like he did or was it his knowledge of biology that gave him the edge, it didn't matter anyway it was time to come up. As he rose slowly from the dark water careful to minimize how much sound he was making his target came into view a guard on the docks. With steady hands and the slight twitch of his finger the man fell into the water with a soft splash making the water even darker, Great more stuff in the water he thought to himself.
A man can only do so much swimming before he decides land was where he was meant to be. James thought to himself as he unpacked his books in his small apartment near Brown University. It only took him 10 years working for the navy for him to figure he needed a new job, with the money he saved living on base and his grants he started down another dark river in his life, Med-school. But something about this new life didn't click like it was suppose to before long he was signing papers with another man in uniform, This time with the UN as a Doctor.
The UN review of his military record and his new degree wasted no time in selecting him for their new program of sending professional workers to unstable areas. They wanted to give these harsh areas a head start after the conflict was over to rebuild and that meant starting the process in the middle of the crisis to establish trust with all party's. Well that's was what the book told James anyway as he read though it on the boat to Chernarus. The program was so new they have yet to even give it a name but they were eager to send as many people with different careers as possible to his Russian speaking county that even James has never seen on a map.
