As the Gunny yells his wake up call, Marcus slowly sits up and starts to get ready. He looks around the room thinking that this squad looks scared and unorganized. After getting ready he makes his way to the briefing, he sees the medic and sits next to him, "stick close kid, I'll keep you alive." He laughs as the first speaker steps on stage.

After the briefing "this sounds like an easy mission." He walks out to find some coffee. Before he can find the mess he hears the call for the squad meeting.

As he walks into the squad room he salutes the two officers and makes his way down to the tiny sniper chick. He sits down next to her figuring this is where their squad is supposed to sit.

"ON YOUR FEET! EVERYONE UP! MISSION BRIEFING AT ZERO FOUR THIRTY! GET DRESSED AND DON'T BE LATE! NOW MOVE IT MARINES!"

Wilzuun looks around. He jumps from his bunk and readies himself for the day. He's one of the last to leave for the first briefing. He finds a spot in the back to park for the first briefing, listening to the general consensus on what should happen with what groups.

During the first briefing, while patting himself down for all needed items for the day, he finds that he hadn't placed a precious item in his locker. After the conclusion of the briefing he makes his way back to the bunks, and his foot locker to place the folded paper inside. He nods towards the female that he passes by as he makes way for his locker.

"This is Gunnery Sergeant Foley. Alpha, Bravo, Charlie team report to the squad room on the double. Echo and Cobra flight leaders report to the squad room."

Wilzuun looks around, closes his locker, and locks it up. Grabs the notepad, and the pen on the table, then proceeds to the squad room. Saluting the officers as he enters.

He sees the female that he passed, and some one he has an idea is in his squad. He makes his way to the end of the isle that they are on, and takes a seat.

The briefing as it went was fairly standard fare. Here are the objectives and here's who's doing them, complete with operational code names from The Second World War (Ok so Alex is kind of a military history buff). Just as they're about to get started the biggest guy in the squad comes grabs a seat next to him.

"stick close kid, I'll keep you alive." Alex chuckled a bit

"I mean I guess I could always use you as cover. After all you're a better door than you are a window."

After the briefing he had fully intended on going back to his bunk to do some light reading or maybe listen to music when all of a sudden the voice of Sergeant Foley came over the comms again ordering them all to the squad room again.

When Alex arrived the rest of the squad was already in there and sitting down so he slotted in on the row behind them. Leaning over forward so he could talk to everyone in the row in front he groused "Everyone notice the military seems to think the world is ending everytime the smallest thing happens?"

Alex (Alexandra due to having two Alex's) nods hello to the squad as they make their way down to her. She hides a smile at Alexander's comment. "If the world were not ending, we might be out of a job." She looks around to make sure the Gunny is not ready to start the briefing "I fear that will not happen any time soon however."

Wilzuun picks his head up from staring at his boots, and gives a small grin, and says in a low voice, "Every little thing, is a threat to end what we care about."

Wilzuun goes back to staring at his boots, still grinning.

Smiling to himself as he listens to his squad well waiting for everyone to have a sit. As the last of Charlie squad arrive, "Ok every secure the loose talk. First off, congratulations on making it this far. As you know this is your last step before graduation. You have one last hurdle... me. Prove yourselves out there today, both as an individual and as a team, and you have nothing to worry about. I know it might be a little hard seeing as you all come from different training groups but... GET OVER IT!! Through out your time in the core you well have to work with a lot of different people. If your lucky you will get to work alongside the people in this room for your whole enlistment, but there is a good chance of you being a signed to different units. For now I will do my best to lead you. I normally serve with Bravo squad who was my squad during our training cruise. It has also been my honor to have served alongside the two officers here since our cruise. The LCDR is in charge of our gunships, call sign Echo One. She has been flying gunships her whole career. In fact she was the first to fly a Valkyrie in combat, before it was fully tested mind you. The LT call sign Cobra one has been our dropship pilot of choose since I first stepped foot on a dropship in boot camp. On this mission I am not going to hold your hand and treat you like trainees. As far as I am concerned you all are Marines and I will treat you as such."

The Gunny signs, "Ok Marines I'm not going to lie to you. Command is calling this an easy day, or a routine mission. Even gave us a target window of six hours. I don't see it that way. Every time we gear up, remember the old saying, 'The only easy day was yesterday.' Every mission we go on maybe our last. As such I will not promise to bring you all back alive. I will promise to do my best to bring as many of you back alive as I can and that Marines don't leave a man behind. So now that we got all that out of the way. This is our battle plan, we will fast rope onto an old rock slide, code name Simon's spin, on the back side of our first hill, code named Simon. Once we reach the summit there will be a rock overhang code name Simon's bill. Bravo, I want you to pack heavy. You will set up on the bill. From there you should have clear line of sight across the tops of the other hill straight to the Citadel. Alpha and Charlie will make our way down the hill to a stream code named Nile. Once one the other side we make our way up the second hill, code name Theodore. At the summit, Charlie will setup a two man observation post. Alpha and the rest of Charlie will make our way down the hill. Part way down we'll find a good spot to make a quick fall back spot before continuing. At the bottom we reach our first problem, a river code named Rhine. Charlie, you are incharge of the river crossing. You'll leave three of you on either side. Alpha will push up the third hill code name Alvin. Once we scout the summit, I'll active the becon to call in the army. At that point all of Charlie make your way to our position. Bravo, I want you to hold till the second wave of Marines can releave you, then meet up with us. Once Charlie gets to us, we will make our way to the Citadel. Estamated mission time till this point two hours. Charlie you'll setup outside, guard both anyone coming in or out. You and bravo should be the only ones coming in. You can join us after Bravo releaves you. Alpha will secure the inside of the Citadel. Cobra will help till we get across the Rhine. Echo will stay on station till Charlie enters the Citadel. Any questions, once we are done here we're heading to the armory and gear locker, so last chance to ask."

"Good. Since there are..." Before he could finish his sentence a beep is heard from his pedestal. Hitting a button, "This is Gunnery Sergeant Foley." From his pedestal, "This is the Captain. Gunny are you coming to poker night?" "Yes captain. Whose all invited and can I bring some one?" "Just the normal crew, and feel free to bring anyone you feel like. It will be the same place and time. Can't wait to play again, should be an interesting game. Captain out."

With a sign the Gunny turns his attention back to the room. As you could probably guess no the captain was not really talking about a poker game but giving me a heads up about the mission. As such there is a change in the battle plan. Bravo pack for rearguard. When we get to the citadel I want you to post outside. No one in or out unless its Alpha or Charlie . We are going to bypass Simon and Theodore. Cobra will run us low and fast through the valley up the Rhine. Once due North of the LZ, we'll off load either into the river if we cant get close to the shore or on to the bank. I want everyone dressed in wet gear. From there bravo will set up rearguard well Charlie and Alpha take the hill. Once clear Bravo will help us hold. Then we move on the Citadel. Alpha we are the vanguard on this mission. We will be the first in the Citadel and be in charge of clearing out. Charlie will secure a post a little ways inside. Echo I want you to fly high an loud to the rock slide then meet up with Cobra after our drop off. Drop any loss cargo the two of you might be caring just in case we need you. Changes to a mission like this are an other thing to get us to. Ok Bravo I want to head to the gear locker first well I help the others in the Armory. Bravo dismissed. Alpha and charlie wait till Bravo leaves then follow me to the Armory." As the Gunny finishes Bravo stands up and leaves through the side door without an other word.

Once the all of them disappeared through the door, "Ok fall in behind me." The Gunny leads the two squads through the side door and down the corridor to the squads armory. Once inside the Armory Chief and Gunny help everyone check their gear and sign it out. Once done the Gunny leads them down a corridor to the gear locker wear he and the gear locker Sergeant help them check their gear before signing it out.
