it was almost 8:00 PM when we left from our station in Harrisburg, PA.
2 work colleagues, and a friend of mine who is a Navy SEAL met up a little
undead attacked us. I was working when everything was going to hell. So was Tom,
of the WGON station managers, and Nick one of our technicians. We had been good
the years and we figured it would be best to stick together in the station
of the craziness. About ten minutes to eight my friend Paul came in. Paul has
friend of mine for years and we were always there for each other. When he got to

that we should leave town while we can. He was right. Not more than five minutes
saw the undead creatures burst in through the WGON station doors and attack
in site. I saw some of my colleagues eaten and some that fled aimlessly. Tom,
I ran and headed straight for the roof. There I saw this old, rusty pile of

been the only time I felt safe enough to sleep. When I awoke I couldn’t figure
out where I

As I was waking up Paul, who was flying the chopper told us that we would have

was just after dawn and I could see the New York skyline. New York apparently
doing much better than Philly or anywhere else. We could see clouds of smoke in
fires. As we passed over Manhattan overhead we could see not just the undead
and claiming it as there own, but we could see people rioting and looting
all of this how could these people be worried about getting a TV set or setting
a store on
It was disgusting. I couldn’t tell if all the bodies in the streets were from
or from the gang bangers or the looters shooting innocent people.
Not one of us said anything to each other, but we were all thinking the
same thing. This is the end for us all.

saw in the distance a green speck. We flew over to get a closer look. We then

we could see zombies on the island. But we thought, if we get rid of this, there
any more. We'll be on an island. We finally had a bit of luck.
looked for a good place to land. One that had a sparse number of the zombies so
we could get out and make a break for the statue. If we could get to her, we
could go to the top and hold up for a while. Then worry about cleaning the

to myself and saw a bag with about 15 rifles. The majority was M16's but there
was an occasional hunting rifle in the bag. We all grabbed a weapon and prepared
to land. As we lowered to the ground I could see the zombies approaching slowly.
I wanted to panic but I couldn’t.
had to protect each other.
soon as we landed, Paul hopped out. He then gave the signal for us all to run.
Tom leapt out followed by Nick and then me.
The gunfire would have been unbearable under normal circumstances, but it
was muffled out by the groans of the zombies, and the gunfire across the river
in Manhattan. We shot uncontrollably at the zombies as we ran for the door to
aim wasn’t that great but that was the least on my mind. I just wanted to get
inside and be safe. Paul, who was breed for this, was even looking upset. We all
we made it to the metal doors. Luckily they were unlocked but they had no
handles. We fought and fought to get the door open as the undead army
approached. It seemed like an eternity, but after a tug of war with the
door...it opened. We ran inside and slammed the door behind us. The huge metal
doors had big metal latches on them. Tom closed the locks. We were in, and safe
doors were definitely strong enough o hold of the zombies for a long time if not
forever. We sat down and decided it was time to relax.
was the next morning when I awoke. I could hear noises up the stairs leading to
Lady Liberty's Torch. I jumped up, grabbed my M16 and went to see what it was. I
couldn’t find anything then out of the corner of my eye I saw a shadow. I
almost leapt out of my skin. Where were all my freinds, what was that shadow,
and what was I going to do?
I went to check out what the shadow was, it leapt out at me. I let out a loud
scream and began hitting it. It was a zombie! His face was ripped apart,
exposing his skull and he was missing a hand. I pushed it away and picked up my
gun. I aimed and went to shoot when a bullet pierced it head. I turned around to
see Paul behind me. I thanked him and we all decided to check out the rest of
the statue before anything else.
took us about 2 hours to check the entire building. We found 6 strays all
we killed them all we climbed up to the top to look out the torch. As we looked
down we could see Manhattan in the distance, a few choppers that flew overhead,
who were probably deserters like us, and the zombies below us on the island.
long as we have the doors shut we should be all right for a while. We have a
restaurant in the building, but it won’t last for long. Eventually we will
have to go out and kill the zombies outside. Then we can get food from other
restaurants, and set up camp on the island.
for now we will stay inside, nice and safe.
is all for my report for now. Hopefully it will be received and we can bring an
end to all of this madness. The next time I report it should be all clear
outside, and we should have camp set up. I warn everyone out there to be careful
and try to protect yourself as best a possible. Do not underestimate these
creatures. They are dangerous and should be approached with caution. So until my
next report, stay safe and kill the bastards.
