Born and raised in Springfield, IL. I signed up for the military at the age of 18 fresh out of high school in order to pay for my college education. I was top of my class as a military police officer. Shortly after retiring I traveled to Chernogorsk to meet with an old friend from the army who had retired a couple of years before me and I hadn't seen since. That is when the frenzied flu had struck. My friend was one of the first to go, he was also the first I had to fend against. Now I in an unfamiliar area and just the land to live off of to fight for my own survival.
