Operation to liberate all boroughs of New York City
During the first stage of the Vampire aggression, the United States had deployed a platoon of soldiers to New York City in attempt to liberate it from its offenders. The first platoon was made up of thirty soldiers and consisted of members from all branches including the Coast Guard. Commanded by Master Sergeant Mark Jones from the Marine Corps, he and the platoon entered New York’s contested territories against an enemy they have never fought before. However due to the lack of information, the platoon quickly faced its end with the Brooklyn Bridge Massacre that took the lives of most of the platoon members after three days in contested territory.
The Brooklyn Bridge Massacre occurred during a night patrol when the platoon was crossing the bridge from Manhattan to Brooklyn. Unbeknownst to them, a few soldiers that were in the platoon were killed while they were in Manhattan and had their uniforms taken from them and their bodies disposed. Dressed in the stolen uniforms, a group of vampires were hidden among the platoon’s ranks. When the time was right, the vampires revealed their presences by beginning their slaughter. Confused and unsure who was an enemy and who was an ally, the soldiers were unable to defend themselves without accidentally killing their own. By the end of the massacre, almost the entire platoon had been killed leaving only six survivors; who managed to escape and hide until the sun came back up.
After the massacre, the United States deployed another platoon that included the survivors of the Brooklyn Bridge Massacre. Commanded by 1st Sergeant Daniel Meza from the Army, the newly created platoon had more information that was discovered about the Vampires and continued to gather more information as the soldiers were picked off by the Vampires. After almost three weeks passed before the platoon’s number reduced from thirty-six to eighteen and once month in contested territory has passed, the vampires attacked the platoon again and successfully killed eight soldiers, including 1st Sgt. Meza, reducing the numbers to ten, four of them were the survivors of the Brooklyn Bridge Massacre.
Instead of another platoon being deployed to New York City, a company had now been deployed. The Company consisted mostly of soldiers who volunteered to join with very few soldiers who were asked to go by an officer. Now under the command of Navy SEAL Petty Officer 1st Class Drake Dennison, one of the original survivors of the Brooklyn Bridge Massacre, the company continues to enter contested territory to take back what’s theirs.
