The new chapters have been sent to the moderators for posting.

This week's chapters open Chris being assigned to lead an Army platoon on a raid against a Commo site attached to a hospital. She knows nothing about the men she is leading or their capabilities, and even needs to instruct them in how to move in the forest.

Later Chris leaves the platoon to do the recon of the site and discovers the surprise waiting there. She and the platoon have their own surprise for them.

Later Chris is congratulated by the Chief RI again. Her own RI isn't quite as pleased with her. On rejoining the Agency platoon, she learns how Carry did on her assignment. They have one more day on the FTX before returning to camp. It rains that night and most of the next day.

On Saturday morning, those continuing to the third phase are loaded on C-130s and flown to Florida. The drop zone is very windy, and there are a number of casualties. Following more classes there, their augmented platoon starts on FTXs.

Meanwhile, Gray suit is hiring more men to eliminate the twins.

The Ranger students go through many exercises on the FTXs in Florida before the Agency platoon is singled out for an operation to rescue a downed pilot. The twins are very wary of this mission.

Enjoy these chapters, more next week.

Keep Well,
