Pre-ApocalypseEditPvt. Red served a whopping thirteeen tours in the Middle east before he was transfered to Will's Platoon in Germany, in 2008. He has a checkered history but always gets the job done.
Pvt. Red learnt of the infection while watching the news. He travelled to the base to man his post, where he found the rest of his platoon holding the command building, keeping the base under control, along with trying to make contact with other units.
