Things are looking up around Huntersville. We're about three months into our rural development grant from the government, and we already have a brand-new water recycling system and sewer lines. The days of dealing with dirty well water have finally come to an end.
Thomas McDevitt over at the farms even said they're tying the new water lines into his irrigation system. I'm not sure how we ever won that grant, but finally this little town has been given the boost that it needs to get back on its feet.

West Tek just finished construction on their laboratory building outside of town. I never thought I'd live to see the day that a major corporation would even consider locating one of their facilities here.
We're getting lots of traffic to and from the site, and people are spending their money here. I'm even thinking of opening a bakery to sell fresh cookies and bread. Things are looking bright in old Huntersville!

We're headed into the holidays and everything's been going well. I've broken ground on my bakery, and I hope to have it up and running by the end of spring next year.
West-Tek has injected some cash into the town, paying some of the local farmers for testing rights at their farms. Not sure what West Tek is working on. Every time I try and strike up a conversation with one of their employees, they clam up or just plain ignore me. Pah, city folk.

It's been a tough month. Several people in town have fallen ill - some kind of a virus or a flu bug. Thomas McDevitt said he was going to head over and chat up the West Tek folks to see if one of their doctors can lend us a hand. Not sure what's going on, but it's certainly gotten a lot quieter around here.
The West Tek traffic into town has all but stopped. Just my luck, too - I'm a month away from opening the bakery. Well, since the guys I hired to build out the place are sick, I suppose it will have to wait.

The sickness that hit us around February is getting worse. Thanks to some doctor from West Tek, we haven't had any deaths yet. Thomas McDevitt was able to convince them to lend us a hand, and they sent help. Their doctor says it's nothing to worry about, just a rare strain of the flu virus.
Tell me, what kind of a flu virus makes your skin start to change color and your hair to fall out? People are starting to get scared. Maybe I'll convince Thomas McDevitt to hop into his truck and head for Charleston or something, to get more help. Come to think of it, I haven't seen Thomas McDevitt since he went to West-Tek.

I don't understand what's going on around here anymore. People are - changing. They're turning, well, green and their bodies are deforming. I don't understand how this could happen from a flu virus. It doesn't make any sense.
The doctor from West-Tek said the flu virus is highly contagious, and he's confined us to our homes for our own safety. They've even placed guards in gas masks outside to make sure we stay put. What am I supposed to do? I'm scared.

Last night, I heard a weird animal-like growling from the Benchley's next door. Then I swear I heard Veronica scream followed by a gunshot. What the hell happened over there? I asked the guard at my door, but he just told me the town was under government quarantine, and that I had to stay indoors.
I think I better load my husband's old double-barrel for safety. If I can lift it. I'm feeling pretty weak lately and running a low-grade fever. I hope I haven't caught whatever's going around.

Tac Ops terminalEdit
**U.S. Government Property**
Tactical Reports - Duty Officer: Sgt. Jake Bianchi, 12th Mountain Division
Op Date 11.02.76Edit
We were deployed today into Appalachia to quarantine the town of Huntersville. Tac Ops reports that there should be minimal resistance, small arms at best. We have strict orders to follow full containment procedures due to some type of a viral outbreak. Apparently, if anyone gets out of Huntersville, we could be looking at a potential pandemic. We've been issued hazmat suits to wear over our BDU's. Hopefully, this will be a simple op while the whitecoats handle the heavy lifting.
Op Date 11.04.76Edit
Pulled into Huntersville today. We were immediately placed under the command of "West Tek," a civvy biotech company that's set up shop nearby. Not sure why command trusts these clowns, but orders are orders - wherever they point, we shoot.
Spent the day setting up roadblocks at the main artery that cuts through the town. Weird thing is I haven't seen a soul on the streets. According to Pvt. Gabesman, West Tek's security already quarantined everyone to their homes. We're supposed to keep it that way.
Op Date 11.05.76Edit
Last night was rough. We were ordered to move into a civvy's house and extract a single male target. I didn't get a good look at him, but Gabesman told me he looked deformed, like something was wrong with his skin. I did hear his voice though, it was a low growl, more animal than human. When we tried to extract, some woman screamed and jumped at us with a kitchen knife. Sanderson freaked and dropped her with a single shot.
Maybe we did her a favor.
Op Date 11.07.76Edit
We're getting reports of the townspeople losing their minds around here as the virus changes their appearance. They're busting through barricades, attacking our men - it's like they aren't human anymore. It's hard to believe these - things were once people.
I don't know what West-Tek was doing out here, but I'm beginning to think that these people were their guinea pigs. Why the hell are we here doing their dirty work? It's not right, and I intend to get to the bottom of this mystery.
Op Date 11.09.76Edit
NEW DUTY OFFICER: Sgt. Orlando Garrett, 12th Mountain Division
I'm here to replace Sgt. Bianchi, who has been relieved of duty. According to the MP Report, Sgt. Bianchi was charged with three counts: gross misconduct, dereliction of duty and insubordination. He'll be transferred back to our forward command outside of Huntervsille and then to headquarters for formal sentencing.
In the meantime, it's my job to make sure this containment operation at Huntersville continues to run smoothly and give West-Tek all the courtesy and assistance that I can.
