Nine years after Emergence Day, Vincenzo and his squad were on patrol along the Ilima-Jacinto City highway when Dizzy Wallin flagged down their Armadillo and asked for medical assistance for one of his daughters. Vincenzo's commanding officer decided to help Dizzy, and they let him and his two daughters aboard the APC and began heading back to Jacinto. Dizzy thanked them, and said would be signing up with Operation Lifeboat to repay his debt to them. Vincenzo's commanding officer asked Dizzy what his skills were, and he said he could fix engines and drive. Vincenzo and his commander looked at each other, and his commander commented that they appeared to have found themselves a Assault Derrick driver.
