I landed a job working for the Department of Defense as a Small Arms Repairer. I had trouble reintegrating back into civilian life. I'm haunted by my time in Afghanistan. It affected my sleep my ability to function as a normal person, which inevitably led to a divorce and being fired from my job. With nothing left to lose I took a role as a Gunsmith for a shady PMC group. Within the first few month's I found myself in a small airfield in the North west of Chernarus in early 2017 . I was tasked to support a group of agents providing security for oil transports. July of 2017 our outpost was attacked by crazed locals, within minutes we where completely over ran. managed to slip out and headed towards Severograd where another contingent of my team was based. I found the contingents outpost completely destroyed. With no options left I began to scavenge and desperately looking for other members of my team. I found safe haven in many different colony's offering my expertise in repairing Weapons and armor for locals. I still continue to look for members of my team, I choose not to stay at one location for to long due to that fact.
