Day 280 “Lost loved ones remembered”

 

The weather took a turn for the worst over the past few days. It has finally let up today. Though it is still ugly outside. The sky is full of dark purple clouds. When they parted I got a brief glimpse at the angry cracks running in the atmosphere. We left the shelter for two jobs today. First was to repair the Radio tower if we could. The second was to get the suv into the garage away from this weather. It was a small miracle that the windshield was not busted form hail.

Day 267 “Like letting air out of a tire”

 

We had to stop for the night to treat our injured. During the night one of Ronin lungs collapsed. Scary sight to be stuck in a car with someone gasping for air. I was driving at the time and almost wrecked the car trying to find a place to pull over. I parked under a old Rv carport next to a burned out house.

Gale worked on making Ronin not die. (more…)

Half of our forces left to take the civilians to Daikon this mornings. They took all but one humvee and a lot of resources. Once they left it felt like we were on a desert island. Back up is a days away and dangers lurks all around us.. While the General is away we are tasked to find replacement transport incase we need it. Which means some of us are going to the suburbs to find working vehicles. You will never guess whos team got assigned to that task. (more…)

 

Day 240 

 

The extra week of basic has molded some of the lesser troops into model soldiers. It has given Sgt. Major Miller the time he need to fix them. Plus it has given the military a chance to better organize the assault on Canson to secure it. Tomorrow all 23 of us will graduate from basic and will be headed to the front lines. We will be broken up into 4 groups of 6-5 man squads. My squad will be Lily as Co, Will as second in command, Beth, Ronin and I. Our task will be to secure building 4 of the route into Canson. (more…)
