Re: Homefire

Why not a third? *** Everything was set. The security ring would move up once the raid had started, the Marine shooters were like angels on high, batteries were fresh, laces were tightened, and rounds were chambered. Back at Site R, commanders were listening on the net and waiting for news, and the ...

Re: Homefire

I was having a tough time trying to figure out where I wanted to go next and I like to plan ahead, so I delayed a bit too long for my liking. To combat that, I sculpted my facial hair into a King Leonidas beard. This cleared my writer's block right up. This installment's a little shorter than usual,...

Re: Homefire

Sorry for the delay, work and all that jazz. *** The SitRep went about as well as Royce had expected.

Re: Homefire

*** Royce sprinted up to the roof as rounds hit the fighting positions and clacked off the roof around him. Some of the weapons were automatic, others were semi-auto, all of them were dialed right in on the quarry and they weren't slacking in their firepower. Royce dropped into the firing position f...

Re: What is your favorite beer OR what are you currently try

14th Star Brewery Valor Ale, it's on the hoppy side so almost like an IPA, but very full flavored. Veteran owned and operated brewery near where I live in VT, they also have an absurd sounding but amazing tasting maple breakfast stout and their Tribute Double IPA is nothing to scoff at.

As promised, an evening addition. *** After getting back to Site R, Grizzly 16 did an After Action Report and debriefed Fader's command staff.

Re: Homefire

Well my sunny day off required many riverside 14th Star Valor ales and American Spirit Black cigarettes(of course disposed of in proper container, not in the rural beauty of the Missisquoi River). Working on another as we speak.

Re: Homefire

Hit the nail on the head and that'll get more coverage in upcoming entries. But, yes, civilians who couldn't make evacuation sites for secure refugee camps were basically left to their own devices with no additional assistance. If left in the position, I'd be a bit pissed off my own self.
