We don’t have our copy of The Stand handy, as we probably left it on a school bus or something, in the 1980s, but let’s see, Army dude sick with the Superbug, escapes a desert military base in California and infects the whole Southwest before he dies, does that sound about right?And if you don't know, yeah Twentynine Palms is in the California desert.
Keep a lookout for The Walking Dude.
