The new chapters have been sent to the Moderators for posting.
I know that I am late posting these final chapters of the story, but my wife of 47 years fell off a ladder at noontime today and broke her leg. My son and I just got back from six and a half hours at the hospital.
I had a long blog written for these the final chapters, but will not be posting it -- just a short synopsis.
The rangers locate the bandits camp after much work and kill most of them in a battle. Later Chanthra informs Mike that people are coming from Bangkok to arrest them and the Amulets transfer them April of 1970, where Mike shortly retires from the Army.
You may wonder why the quick retirement? Remember that Bill and those from the Shan States in Amulets IV returned on Saturday, 2 May, and the two groups are not destined to meet.
I will be taking some time to do some large format photography after this but will work on some of my other stories as time and my wife's leg permit.
