An anecdote states that the photo taken was by Sasha Nikolaev
Name: Leon Konrad
Age:28, DOB: 12/26/1990
Stationed at: FOB Sidewinder
Accomplishments: Good Conduct Medal(5x)
Combat Action Ribbon w/ 6x stars
Distinguished Service Cross
Cross of the Survivor
2Lt-1Lt(Cpt. Disney) 1Lt-Cpt(LtCol. Hayes)
Due to Konrad's excellence during bootcamp and prior service in the military(0861 USMC, 1st LAR Bn/1), he was able to proceed onto specialized training of several schools involving MASOC.
This allowed him to serve with the 24th Conscript Battalion, like many Conscript units, the 24th is missing on-field frontline communications and specialized units. This can be seen from lack of units such as snipers, specops, mechanized infantry, etc. Therefore, Konrad was transferred over Jul 26th, 2018 into a spotter/RTO role coming from the 3rd Conscript Battalion serving 32 miles off the coast of City 21. The contrast is huge, as the 3rd was far more luxarious and peaceful in comparison to the casualty-ridden 24th. Despite being assigned to a Scout-Sniper platoon while serving in Golf Company at the 3rd, Konrad never received official sniper training and therefore is not certified enough to operate sniper rifles. Nor would he like to, because of their inefficiency in taking down hordes of antlions seen at the 24th coupled with the immense weight of them. Konrad is authorized to have direct comms to command(something his radio allows, as well) if nessescary, and has juristiction to call in support, and fire support. Even without his radio, his training has allowed him to understand hand signals and morse codes, along with survival techniques in many climates and conditions.
Items in Bunk:
Weapons(prefers lightweight, he does not take any equipment he wouldn't use, unlike many of the conscripts he notices): M4A1 Carbine - This is Konrad's weapon of choice, it's conveniently standard issue and it's high rate of fire coupled with it's sleek profile makes it extremely effective for the urban environments of C:i17.
HK45C - A simple handgun, high in stopping power and ergonomics, but low in mag capacity, regardless, it's concealable and nice to have, albeit heavy for some reason.
Knife - Standard knife, so far he's only used it for cutting through fabrics to tend to wounded.
PRC-177G Radio - Most likely the best weapon he's got, it packs the most firepower and can call in artillery, air, and naval support.
MK3A2 - If it's gonna be a short operation he will bring more firepower(usually clipped onto his rig, or in a hip pouch). Konrad usually uses these grenades offensively cause they don't pack too much fragmentation.
Worn Equipment(again prefers lightweight, due to radio and other equipment): Boonie hat which he wishes he wasn't using due to its lack of protection and Headset connected to: PRC-177G Radio on back, below the radio is a butt pouch containing rations (2 mres), and an BB-2557/U Li-Ion Rechargeable Battery M-69 Fragmentation Vest/Ceramic Inserts that's worn underneath the following: Shoulder Pouch - MIL-PRF-10436N Compass. Clipped on are 2x M18 Signal Smoke Grenades(1 Violet 1 Red) 2x25sec 'SΛLUS INC' Signal Flares Plate Carrier - on his plate carrier he carries 8x30rnd 5.56x45mm STANAG magazines, and a few flares and zipties on it. He uses steel plates, quite painful but they can take multiple hits. Two hip pouches attached to the plate carrier contain a box of spare batteries for his GLTD, along with an extra signal grenade. A Mapcase is on his right leg, containing 1-4 maps, one of the base, and two or more of the AO(s) A GLTD encapsulated inside of a protective case is attached to his left leg. Gloves he doesn't use gloves in the current AO. Canteen pouch is worn for his rear right pouch, he wishes that he had a hydration bladder, but unfortunately he has no room. He sometimes carries a second canteen pouch on the left side.
He keeps spare room in his butt pouch and hip pouch for whatever else he may need to grab.(in this case, he carries a flare gun and several flares often serving with the 24th, and occasionally grenades.) He does not carry a backpack.
He only eats his on-person rations during emergencies when he cannot get resupplied. He prefers to eat at the mess and does so frequently.
If it fits the environment, he occasionally paints over the spools and pins of his M18s as they tend to be quite shiny.
Recently, he has been putting cigarettes on his belt, uncertain whether or not to use them - he shares them with fellow conscripts
Depending on the day of the week, Konrad, as the Platoon Sergeant will pay his men corresponding to their paygrades so that they can have some money for other expenses, whether that be for combat or off-duty relaxation.
Holds an East-European Accent, but talks with some slang of American Culture, and some slang with Slavic Cultures. He spends a lot of time talking with grunts and hanging out with them. He speaks with a concise demeanor, and is overall friendly and accomadating, but more often than not it's professional talk.
Due to the UU targeting military installations first, Konrad was one of the first men to be conscripted, which is why his CID is such a low number at 00089.
"Right before we moved to the current COP Kurowski was already up-and-coming, showing great strength in being a pure grunt. I couldn't ask for more in that department. However, I'm interested to see whether or not he can be a good leader, as well."
-"Kurowski has shown consistency in what he does, and excelled in both combat and on-base SOP. Such is the reason why I bumped him up and passed over a spec. Truly a solid grunt, he reminds me of some of the best. I imagine he'll inspire his fellow men."
-"Kurowski, putting in so many hours in dedicating himself to the conscript life and with sheer discipline along with his veterancy meant that he'd gain a promotion to test the waters as to whether or not he could be an NCO. So far, he can, but he might be having some issues with cohesion. Outside of that, no complaints thus far, he's one of our replacements from about a month ago but has proved his duty time and time again. He's come a very long way in terms of his progression. Glad to have him with us. He still needs some more work as an NCO, though."
-"He's trying, but he's inexperienced. Though, he's willing to improve and continues to do so. I'm really hoping he can become a solid NCO."
-"Sleeps a lot, is awake when everyone else is sleeping. Can't.. can't really comment on anything at the moment, though he's pretty funny while on watch when nothing's going on.
SSgt. Richard Karter
"Carter has been an on and off NCO in the past. He's a work in progress, though definitely a liked man in the platoon. That said, I don't know where exactly he stands in the NCO duties, I suppose I just haven't seen him in all the duties/aspects yet to form an opinion. He's a good grunt, albeit unprofessional frequently, it's simply his personality. Though, not many have a big issue with this, hence why the platoon likes him. Slightly puzzling, and quite interesting is where I'd put it. Carter places in a lot of time, training the men day in and day out. He can also be too eager occasionally, however he makes up for all his faults with the immense amount of effort he puts in."
-"Carter remains slightly puzzling, however he's continuing to pour in effort to his leadership, while somewhat green in some places, he's improving which is quite good!"
-"Karter continues to put in good effort, and he's one of the specialized NCOs who does his own fields of training, this is really helpful since it allows me to funnel specific specs towards him. Not much more to add here, sometimes he can be too hard on the men and a few don't like him for that. I haven't seen him leading that many patrols recently."
-"I'm becoming more worried with the amount of complaints which have been coming in regarding Karter's 'hardass' behavior to humiliate conscripts even behind their backs, I hope he can adjust, so far, Kurowski has, but Karter's still on the line about it, it'd seem. When I spoke with him he seems to be more undisciplined than before, compared to when he was a Corporal, among other issues. It would really be a shame if he can't adjust properly."
"Strauss hasn't changed much. At first glance a person may believe she's cold, but when you look deeper it's simply untrue. Strauss cares but only for her brothers and sisters in arms. Ontop of this, she's a responsible and reliable(albeit occasionally ill-tempered) combat medic who will do anything you need her to do in combat. If you tell her to save someone's life, she'll do precisely that. A solid individual without a doubt, and truly an asset to the platoon. She's competent, disciplined, caring and sharp enough where I'd consider her a leader."
-"Strauss continues improving, I'm satisfied at the rate she's progressing."
-"Honestly, right now, Strauss might be one of the best NCOs here in the two basic non-comm ranks. She's SUCH a nice help around the base, from leading squads to training teams and just boosting morale. I can trust her to get things done easily. Very glad to have her with us."
-"Strauss seems a bit.. distraught regarding the recent events, I'm going to give her a bit of a break to help her relax and get her head back together, by request of some of the grunts who have expressed their concerns for her health. She's strong and doesn't need it, but I agree with them; it'd do her some good, a short break. I need you thinking and acting straight, Strauss, you're my most reliable, active NCO right now. I need you in the fight."
-(11/26/18)"Uh.. let's just not talk about that one."
"Our French platoon lieutenant. He sets the standards, and comes around now and then to ensure they're maintained. From what little combat I've shared with him, he seems sharp. In peacetime, his relaxed standards boost morale greatly, and his open communication builds cohesion among NCOs and grunts alike. A solid leader for us."
Spc. Pavel Antonivich
"Pavel is my good friend and a solid combat individual in my past experience. By that I mean since SIDEWINDER as grunts together to now. However, perhaps our standards occasionally slip and Pavel got drunk, starting a fight. Despite his drunkenissues and slight unprofessionalism during peacetime, I hold nothing against him, as I know he's going to perform and exceed the standards necessary to finish the mission in combat."
-"Honestly a shame, seems all the peacetime and undiscipline has gotten to Antonivich. He was about to receive his promotion in the coming weekend when he capped the CO in the head. Although I took the chance to reprimand and blackmark him(others wanted to demote and blackmark), he didn't take it properly at ALL, no responsibility. Again, a shame, but hopefully he can improve."
Sgt. Ross Fletcher
"Fletcher is still Fletcher, a decent combat leader and a solid standards model. For what he sometimes lacks in, such as control or sharpness, he makes up in other ways. He's consistent and I trust him to do most duties as a conscript, especially standards. He's the kind of guy you can place by a group of drunk conscripts during peacetime and he'll ensure that they get home in one piece."
-"Fletcher still has frequent signs of his own discipline breaking, despite him somewhat maintaining others. He broke one of the most important rules of NCOs which some wouldn't even go near. I'm afraid that even puzzling NCOs like Carter may be better than him in this aspect. It's not good, I thought he might've been improving but perhaps he's getting even worse. He understands his problem, but understanding is half of the fight. We'll have to see where he goes. Simply put, if he can't keep a level head and he can't maintain discipline, he needs to be replaced. Standard simple SOP, however I'm sincerely concerned."
-"Fletcher remains questionable, however his recent attitude has changed for the better which gives me some faith. He still does his part as an NCO, but leaves plenty of room for improvement."
-"Unfortunately, Fletcher is quite frankly not a good NCO anymore. Especially in recent times. I mean, in the past he wasn't a good combat leader either but now everyone is losing faith in him, it started with the grunts and I'm beginning to feel it, what a shame."
-"I spoke with Fletcher, and he seemed to understand his issues. I have faith that he can improve and become a better NCO, I'll let him take a break and see if he can get his head straight. I think I still trust him."
M/Pvt. Judy Garland
"Garland is still Garland, a very eager combat medic who's knowledgeable in the medical field, but can more often than not be closed minded and stubborn, if not completely crazy. Despite her flaws, we've all come to appreciate her traits of being an efficient combat medic, whether the activites is clearing a house or saving a life. She's definitely one of my go-to's when it comes to assessing the needs of medical equipment or ensuring that a conscript's life is saved. She can truly sometimes be a puzzling individual, especially as of recent times, I hope Strauss can take care of her."
"Garland has shown herself to be consistently faulting in her discipline, even over a PDA, and it's got me worried at this rate. Despite her flaws, she's still quite an efficient medic and combat veteran. That's worth something."
-"Well, shit. I don't know what to say, it was very unexpected. Ihope you recover, Garland, not just for your own sake, but also for the sake of everyone's morale."
-"Garland has been recovering lately, and the medics have given her some good news, too. She spoke with me about her commitment to improve her discipline, I appreciate that greatly. It's good to see she's still in one piece, definitely will help the platoon's morale, too. Welcome back, Garland."
M/Pv2. Ryan Winkler
"Ryan Winkler is one of my favorite grunts, he's got the right amount of wits and sharpness. He has no negative attitude nor any ego, he does his duty and only his duty, with little to no nonsense around the corners. Outside of combat, he's a friendly guy and easy to get along with. I'm thankful he's in the platoon, his experience in the combat and medical field is invaluable."
-"Still a good guy, and a good pianist. Very reliable, I trust him completely.
"I was initially skeptical of this conscript. He came in as a recruit looking green as hell, even to this day he's still green and makes mistakes due to his inexperience. In peacetime, when off-duty he's not discreet enough, and he doesn't seem humble. However, he slowly but surely gained my trust in him as a grunt with the responsiveness he had during patrols. He placed faith in me when he followed me into the pits of antlions swarming out of the sand. That goes back around, he's been improving a ton, glad to have him with us."
-"Volkov has remained consistent, his experience has netted him a nice paygrade raise to E-3 as well. He doesn't seem to have most of the problems I've mentioned before, infact none come to mind as of recently. Hope he keeps up the good work as a grunt."
-"Volkov had a discipline incident about a week back. Since then he's done a good job and kept a good record - Antonivich should take some notes from Volkov on how to act. Although Volkov initially didn't take responsibility, he later overall did and tried to make up for it. Outside of this, he's still been an exceptionally effective grunt, although he clutters comms occasionally. Volkov wants to become a specialist however his training method needs work. For what it's worth, he's come a long way from being a green recruit to now a reliable grunt. I still trust him to watch my back."
-"What a journey for Volkov. He was pretty bad when he first enlisted, then he got better, but still slipped up in some places. Currently, he's extremely good, I have no complaints. He also solves more problems than he creates, sadly something that is noticeable nowadays in the bigger picture of the platoon. He's not a bad guy to converse with and takes care of his men exceptionally well, an important trait. Overall, a steadily improving leader, he's got a lot of potential. So far, he's using it quite well, glad to have him as an NCO."
Pvt. Jebediah Marlowe
"A mostly fresh conscript who was on rear echelon duty with our command team. I handed him a guitar and told him to paly some tunes, despite never playing one in the past, he played exceptionally well. Nice sense of humor, too."
"Hmph. Where to start... Devil's a marine, he was an exceptionally efficient grunt. He had the skills and the experience to do a lot of good in both the conscripts and just in general, but his heart was in the wrong spot. Instead of becoming a good leader and keeping men alive in the fields of combat, he vowed to leave those which didn't deserve respect behind. I get where he's coming from, I really do. Many can and would agree with him, but not his methods. No matter how useless or shitty a conscript is, I'll atleast give my best shot at bringing them back home. This isn't a one man show, and going as if it is meant that he was a liability. It's honestly a damn shame it had to be this way. In any case, he had it coming with his mentality. If it wasn't us, it was for sure going to be the union. No way would I let a faceless nobody do that. I have some gripes about the way he went out, there's no denying that, but what's done is done. If I could go back and have it my way, I would, but I can't. Atleast he beat me to getting out of this shitty world, asshole, hah. Rest easy, Semper Fi, Devil."
Pv2. Coleman Pedersen
"Pedersen was a transfer, he shipped in about half a week ago and since has proven his experience rather fast. This must be at least in part from his prior service. His comm SOP reminds me of the old days and his sharpness is meticulous. He's eager yet disciplined unlike some of the other conscripts who are eager. For example, if he wants to take point, he'll ask for permission. Generally in the past, green and eager conscripts just run up ahead, which is a big no in my book. Already Pedersen has gained respect from many of the men, including myself. He helps around the base during peacetime by cooking up a nice beef stew, and during yesterday's raid he took point and neutralized four hostiles himself. I have high hopes for him."
E/Pv2. Steven Klein
"Klein is also a transfer who shipped in roughly half a week ago. He too has proven himself quickly but in a different sector, combat engineering. Unlike other engineers I've seen in the past, Klein is a legitimate COMBAT engineer. He's one of the first ones I've seen do practical operations such as EOD and demolitions. Not any of the robot or castle building bullshit I usually see. Sorta like Pedersen, he's got an extensive record, and so far he's our best engineer period. Good guy."
E/Pfc. Melody Harrisson
"Harrisson, what a mildly annoying name to spell. She's got quite the history, most of it dark but I'm glad she's put it behind her. She's now an energetic engineer, and despite her bad luck with combat injuries sustained, she presses on. I'm glad to have her in this platoon, she adds a nice amount of life into it. As for her effectiveness solely as a combat engineer, I can't complain at all, she does her job well, she's level headed and sharp to follow orders. I trust her."
-"Harrisson is truly a nice help in the current scope of things, she comes to me often for assistance. Effective in her line of work. Easy to talk about hard things with, it's just nice to have someone to talk to, even if it's mutual, I don't really mind."
-"Harrisson does great work as an engineer, and she always tries to be of help. Overall a well rounded combat engineer, the only issue is her attitude, but I'm trying to have her work on it. I still see her less as of a connie and more of like a family member, strange. I guess it's the whole comradery thing. Glad to have her with us."
Cpl. Autumn Moreau
"A beautiful name for the French sharpshooter, which seems to match her thoughtful heart. I have unfortunately not seen her combat experience or discipline in patrols because well, she's a sleepy Frenchie. She's put forth plenty of effort despite this, going beyond the standards required of her, she's a nice person. Very thoughtful indeed, especially going over our pre-war lives with Agasti, and a crack shot with either a carbine or a DMR, as can be seen with her defence of shell beach. She's different than the other conscripts, not necessarily aggressive or energetic, more like.. calming. Tough to explain, really; but nice to have a change of pace in the platoon."
-"She proved herself very well in yesterday's mission, covering what was left of that snowy, combat ridden FOB with out platoon inside of it. She had over 40 confirmed kills from this alone. In today's JW she again showed her sniper's reflexes by taking out three rebels rather quickly. She's definitely our best sniper at the moment, reminds me of Lancer. Outside of that, she's still herself, which is the part I find intriguing. She'll go far."
-"Moreau.. mh.. don't really know what to say anymore. She's a solid grunt, and the best marksman/sniper in our platoon, I hope she continues to improve and progress. Really nice as a person, actually pretty intriguing, I trust her with my life."
-"Still a crack shot, she'll definitely keep me covered, I'll hand off the new rifles to her ASAP."
-"I always knew she had a lot of potential, I just didn't know if she was fit for being a leader. That said, she's a capable NCO, there just hasn't been a whole lot of action for her to prove herself(or not). Not much else to comment at the time, she's still goofy and does some weird stuff, like when I walked in on her the other day."
Pvt. Paula Harper
"She's a nice person, and helpful - she seems to care for her comrades. Albeit a little shy. I haven't seen her in combat enough to tell whether or not she's a good grunt, but she's atleast a good person. I'd like to see her around more often.
-"Are you kidding me?"
Pvt. Felix Dinu
"Dinu is an odd conscript. He's not exactly a good grunt, actually - I think he'd be better as on-base staff than a conscript. Still, he tries his best and means well, it's just recently he's been putting his team at risk occasionally. Some training would do him good, along with a change of his attitude to something more simple. I mean, I got nothing against him."
-"Well, as I told him, he needs to think simpler and more efficient. A level head would do him good, and from there more training. He's been pretty helpful in the problems at the FOB. His heart is in the right place to improve, he just needs to actually train and improve his effectiveness as a grunt."
M/Spc. Felix Ulfsson
"Ulfsson is slightly odd. He's overall a well rounded, good medic to have, decent grunt. However, about 60% of the time I see him, he's sharp and attentive. The other 40% he's in a trance and you just can't get to him. I don't know if it's a psychological thing, but I'm gonna have Takahashi check on it. The other day, I told him to pull security but he just kept standing there in his trance, a zombine rolled up to our fireteam with a grenade which I had to gun down because Ulfsson still couldn't get his weapon off his sling. I have nothing against Ulfsson, but if he can't perform he's a liability. I need him to perform, else I'm gonna have to put him on noncombat duties."
-"Ulfsson is coming along nicely, he's improved quite a bit. I still have some distaste for his combat methods but outside of that he's a reliable combat medic and a decent grunt who puts in quite a bit of effort. His rank represents that well, I believe."
"Singleton in the past has caused some problems, but personally I've never encountered them. He's a mostly reliable combat medic who sometimes stirs the pot but outside of that there's not a whole lot to comment on at the moment. He's become like the platoon's clown or something, but again I haven't personally seen much of it, just hear a lotta banter. Regardless, nice to have him in the platoon with us."
Michael 'Pepsi' Takahashi
"I've finally gotten used to the spelling of his name, it only took a couple months, I'm uncertain whether or not he's GRID but it's safe to assume he is. Despite whatever little stuff GRID does in this city, Takahashi is one of the friendlier units who has been a help in diffusing what would otherwise be escalating situations. His previous experience might not give him a lot to work with, but his new-found one, whether or not he knows, could be handy. Maybe they should sign the guy up for being a negotiator."
-"He's come a long way since my last entry, now a OfC - still for GRID. He's wanted to enlist in the conscripts for awhile but he does not meet the physical requirements - plus he's a bit green, that's too bad, but he still seems to have his sanity. Hopefully his current occupation can work out for him, he's a nice guy and deserves some joy in what he does for life."
-"Pepsi is (finally) back to his conscript brothers and sisters. He's still his very joyful self, that's great for morale. A cool guy, I hope he can become our psychiatrist. Atleast, that's one of the potential primary occupations he can do. Up to him, really, but everyone including myself seems to have no qualms with him."
"Nikolaev is a complex character. I liked him, then I disliked him, and now I'm sorta liking him again. He seems to have fixed his mistakes and ego of picking fights with conscripts and citizens alike, his true purpose is with his camera. Unlike your normal civvies, though Nikolaev carries no weapons, he's not afraid to go into the dirt and grime of combat, I believe a lot of greenbacks respect that. Unfortunately, he doesn't have his camera anymore, so I'll have to see about requisitioning a new one for him. "
-"After requisitioning his camera for him, Nikolaev's been quite a good assist to our platoon. He's still a good combat photographer and he helps run errands and maintain the base, nice."
Spc. Leonard Stokes
"Stokes is our new replacement SNCO/NCO unlike most of our transfers, I haven't known him for as long as most of the conscripts here, but he's reliable. He's proven to be very effective in combat, able to follow orders and communicate sharply along with micromanaging on his own. I have no complaints about his combat. During peacetime however, Stokes can occasionally get a little out of hand and be unprofessional, however, what kind of conscript doesn't? It can set a bad precedence for the men as an NCO regardless. I still hold full confidence in his combat abilities."
"Kowal has shown improvement compared to his days back as a GRID CEO(massive pog). Seems placing him out into the field has placed him in a position where he's forced to adapt and thus far it's only benefitted him. I actually don't mind having him in my fireteam anymore, not much to complain, a well rounded soldier who's trying to lose the flaws of his past."
"Petrenko has an extensive combat record, showing that he's consistently servedhis duty and followed regulations as required. Funny enough, a year ago this is exactly what we'd want in each of our men, at the minimum. He's on edge often. However, in our currently deployed theater it'd be far better for him to ease up during peacetimes while bringing back the sheer grunt mentality when it was time for combat. I can't blame him though, sometimes it's tough for me to ease up, our style of life means that you should never lose your edge, it should always linger in the back of your head no matter how peaceful or controlled the situation may seem. Regardless, I believe Petrenko should attempt to relax sometime; it'd do him some good."
-"Unfortunately seems that the platoon doesn't like quitters, I would have to agree. Though I'm glad he quit now, I'd rather he quit during peacetime than in combat when it counted on everyone's lives. Hate to say it, but he lost my trust."
-"I can't say I trust Petrenko as I once did without lying. At the same time, I don't really hold anything against him. I haven't been able to see his engineering, combat or other skills. But from the few interactions I've had with him, he's funny solely because he's an MPF officer who isn't all about the 'glory to the union!' bullshit. Seems like he could still be a cool guy, but I've also heard otherwise from other officers, like some pretty bad stuff. Seems complicated, I mean, I'd still fight alongside him if it was required."
"I've gotten the hang of saying and writing his last name, now. Both his and Antonivich's actually. A consistent grunt, with not a lot to mention about him. He's actually quite similar to Volkov in that sense, just that there has never been anything bad of Vakazinki to begin with. He also doesn't get drunk as fast as Antonivich, so overall - he's a good and reliable grunt."
-"So, Vakazinki is a long term veteran. He was also well rounded in all the attributes of being a conscript, albeit not skilled in all of them. Jack of all trades, master of none. Most importantly, he was somewhat willing to take on the role. If he's willing, we can improve him. Anyways, since I've bumped him up to E-4 he's performed alright, he does need some improvement, but like Kurowski, he's working on it. At the moment, that's what counts. I have faithhe can perform what's needed on the upcoming deployment, so help me god."
-"Vakazinki decided conscript life was not for him, I respect his decision as that's his. However, it's not something I completely agree with. Regardless, I believe he will do good in the MPF, and we'll probably cross paths to fight alongside once again."
Unit 141 - Amenset
"Whoever this unit was, she had some nerve. As I was introducing myself as the PSG, she stepped out from attention and stared directly at me for several seconds before falling back in. I noticed this but of course I didn't call it out, something about this caught my eye, I can't get it out of my head. The main reason for that, is cause she took her faceplate off at one point and good god was she attractive." -"I've not been a man of romance for close to a decade now, being focused on my men and all. But this woman is astonishingly perfect, from the class she uses to speak to the personality that she carries herself with, I sincerely couldn't ask for more. It was simply astounding to see the medical worker which my medics consistently rave about, the mysteriously attractive woman at joint-training and the polite, caring MPF officer all be one single person. I hold no regrets for what we've done, and I'm unendingly thankful to be in your company, Amenset."
-"Wow, is she something. She definitely has an effect on me which makes me question my morals and discipline sometimes. Highly out of control, and she's making me do the same, heh."
-"I really can't stress how much she helps me. I've been so exhausted from the prior month, sometimes I forget where I placed my remorse, empathy, joy, sadness or anger simply because I had no time to deal with any of it, the operations, missions, patrols, sweeps, politics, punishments, regulations, death.. My conscience becomes clogged and compartmentalized to aid with the day to day struggles of conscript life, I become cold, I forget to feel, but somehow someway, she finds a way to clear my mind. I feel so.. human around her. Warmth(both literally and figuratively), emotions, comfort, just a ton of things I wouldn't be feeling if I was on duty, it's so.. natural. My training tells me I should tread carefully, but I know to find an equalibrium between duty and life. Still, she knows everything about me; and I know everything about her. I've never been so close with anyone as I am with her, the bond which we share: It's not something I take for granted. I really appreciate everything. I love you, Amenset."
"154 is a unit I'm quite fond of. She asked for help a couple times and despite our distances we were able to move to her position. Though we arrived on the mark of our ETA, my fireteam wasn't needed because she had beat the perpetrator to death with a lead pipe after he grabbed her gun. She seemed to not even be winded, as if it was all SOP. Not bad at all, but it leaves me curious about her story. Maybe I can get to know her better."
-"154 is quite the exceptional officer, nice to talk to during peacetime, has a surprisingly adept sense of humor and reliable in combat. She's been of great assistance to my platoon."
GRID 01 209
"A professional officer. Able to de-escalate and take command of their units, along with being handy in our sweeps. Definitely one of the more well rounded, sharper units that I've seen around here, unlike their peers. Hopefully they can develop their subordinates to become similar to their efficiency."
"Though I have few interactions with this unit, they're all quite nice. He's clearly got a good brain in his head, he's sharp and smart. He's a capable leader and a solid officer. I have no complaints on his performance, I'm glad to be working with him and his open mind, unlike one of his DvL peers."
-"He remains consistent, still the best MPF high command. He's friendly time to time and offers a hand when he can, pretty easy to talk to. From the interactions I've had with multiple officers, their favorite HC too is this unit. Nothing more to note, as again, he remains consistent in his duty."
-"Well, he's commander now. Ran into some politics with C01, can't blame him. My overall opinion remains unchanged."
"She enjoys being called Miss Thorpe, actually. I have had few interactions with this civil worker, but all have been pleasant. She seems to be a shy, polite, hard working CWU member. Her work blocks are set up perfectly to the point where it's of admiration, she's truly something citizens should strive to become. Well.. aside from the tobbacco and frequent coffee."
CA Dr. Danerian
"Danerian is a CA I'm relatively fond of. She's given me no reason to dislike her in the slightest, she's helpful and conversing with her is pretty easy. She keeps things professional, smooth, and easy going for the most part. I do my part, she does hers, I'd say we get along nicely."
"Pax has been a great help to our community and my platoon. He's served them food and drink, given them a discount and even saved one of their lives during an engagement. A very interesting figure and an overall nice guy to have a chat or a beer with. His exemplary duty as a citizen netted him the first and only Outstanding Civillian Service medal. Nice guy."
-"He's still been of great assistance to conscripts, and he has a new rank. I believe he can be a solid leader, and so far he's proving himself. He's a good man, I believe he'll go far. I've got his back."
-"Funny thing, when we went to move the FOB we had some spare crates lying around, and in one of them was an entire shipment of food from the Grotto delivered from Pax himself. What a welcomed surprise, the platoon will enjoy it, most still miss the Grotto, but life moves on. Hope you're still doing well, Pax."
"Haven't seen Haze since our one chat, I hope he got to do what he wanted to do down there. Useful guy, I'd be pretty willing to help him out if he needed it. Hope he stays safe, there's a lot of enemies out for him."
"Most of these guys are actually just fine. I will get along with them as long as they make an effort of getting along with me, too. Back at the ball they left a bad taste in my mouth for being unprofessional, but those units have since been reprimanded. Their leadership seems to be the best, but there's a big gap between their grunts and leadership. Despite this, I'll do my best to help them improve."
"I-I left them behind, I'm sorry. I couldn't carry them." "Don't fucking sweat it! You're alive, c'mon, we're gonna move you - we being me."
"I failed you guys, I thought we could break out of the encirclement. ...It's my fault those two are dead." "Don't sweat it Leon, you couldn't help it, you were being drowned already."
"I-I'll never forgive myself." "For what?" "That my men died and I didn't.." (Deckards and Konrad conversing after Deckards found Konrad, The Ambush of The Cold Ridge.)
"A pretty new private, but he's extremely intelligent and competent. This madman ran through a hail of bullets TWICE to save two conscripts and get them back to base, I'm putting him up for a medal and a promotion."
-"Today I finally delivered the medal, and he hasn't let me down since. A hero."
-"A sad death for a hero, but he kept doing his duty for his brothers until his last breath. When I found him, he was surrounded by over 80 rebel corpses on a mound, he died by a sandbag. A few meters to the left, near the mortar, was Tretskov, who died as well. I tried to bring them back.. but my body just wouldn't allow me to. I tried to carry them, but my wounds began to open, I could hear the shouting as more of them moved on my position.. I'm sorry. MacLeod's IFAK saved the life of Pfc. White, making sure I didn't lose another hero, I carried White back myself through the valley of death. Rest in peace, brother.."
"A great shot, he uses a DMR. Very reliable in the field from what i've seen, and he doesn't clutter the comms as someone.. say strauss would. Glad to have him with us! He was feeling down so I gave him an entire bottle."
-"Communicated clearly and efficiently in the firefight, he was key to it as he was the only one with the DMR, extremely reliable, even if he got shot. I trust him to watch my back."
-"He's competent, smart, and sharp. A good grunt for sure, and an even better marksman."
-"Tretskov died seconds after MacLeod did, I used his M16 to defend myself against my trailing assailiants. He died like a hero, alongside MacLeod, holding the line so that others could escape. I wish I could've been there for him, he's a hard russian, i'm sure he went out the way he wanted to, with his brothers. The crazy man might've even enjoyed it a little bit! They went through hell, killing over 80 rebels while visiting, now that that's done, I hope they'll find a place in heaven.."
"A good infantry guy, he's from some state in the south side of America. Similar to Eddy, he didn't have any problems following my lead and was able to help me in whatever I needed done. He liked the pizza.... " -"White has been very consistent and effective in patrols. Following orders sharply and being able to throw down lots of lead with his 249, i've recommended him a promotion for his consistency."
-"I heard White's calls on the radio, I'd already known MacLeod and Tretskov had died.. I ran out to find him, only to see that Milky was keeping him barely out of shock, I swore on my life that I wouldn't let another hero die. With MacLeod's medkit, I was able to save White's life and I carried him. I kept running and running, being shot at and chased, I ran through trees as they splintered into my eyes, I ran as the snow bit into my bleeding cheeks and my bloodied shoulders, I kept running. I ran, sliding down the mountain as my shins burned out of it's skin, exposing the flesh. I ran into the valley as the jeep fired it's cannon, hitting the rock like a thunderstrike, ran and ran, til I couldn't run no more, I took Tretskov's M16 and fired the remaining amount of it's ammunition as the car rounded the corner. I shot until the entire damn thing blew up, in excruciating pain I climed up the 40 ft cliff with White, I could feel my shoulders and legs want to give up, but I had made a promise, I climbed til' we reached the top, and ran as they followed us, before long I could see: we made it.."
"He's a nice infantry guy, he's got no problem following my lead in things and is definitely in touch with the reality of things. He hated the pizza and trashed his slice."
-"He does seem to have some problems though... He's distracted too often and enjoys weird stuff. Something about tires.."
-"Speaks and understands a lot of truth about the company. But seriousness aside, he's literally a clown and quite funny."
-"Deckards quick-thinking allowed me to get into position to save the platoon from certain death, even though we were all wounded trying to hold the line, it was still worth it as no one died.
-"This man saved my life, he self-consciously volunteered to go back behind enemy lines by himself to find me. When he did, I was in such a bad condition and being chased down by platoons of rebels, but he still carried me all the way back through the enemy lines to safety. I trust him with my life."
-"Deckards has been a great help on base taking care of the prisoners, so I created a GM role just for him to continue doing what he's doing. Good to have him."
-"Deckards has been.. INCREDIBLY useful on the FOB. He's come an extremely long way from what he was before and has shown mountains of improvement and dedication. He's a solid soldier, i'm bumping him up to see if he can be a good leader, too."
"An expert marksman, I've spent many hours with him on the watchtowers spotting out targets and taking them out, along with directing fire and ground troops. He's extremely reliable and again, a very good shot. We make a good sniper team." -"Well, we've become THE sniper team and are working on our 700 meter shots. Though this is just stuff for the base defense, on the field, I will probably be on the front."
-"I put forth a commendation for your service thus far, I'm proud of you, I mean it. You have the potential and are using it. I'm glad we were able to rescue the men, no casualties is what I always want, anyday. We want all of them home safe. It's good to see the grunts gainingrespect for myself, it's great for cohesion and it warms my heart. I couldn't do it without you and the others."
-"Lancer has shown great leadership potential from the last PT exercise conducted, therefore i've recommended him for a promotion."
-"From what i've been keeping track of, Lancer and I now have around 30 confirmed kills on armed denizens since arriving."
-"Wow! A long time since writing here again. Lancer hasn't changed much, he's shown exemplary tactics both in combat and in training. He's as reliable as I ever thought him to be as an NCO since SIDEWINDER. Glad to have him with us."
"Known as M60 woman between myself and Pavel, or actually, Pavel knows her as Ladything. In any case, she carries around an M60. Very reliable in today's breach of the base. I have one of her trophy's."
-"Jessica and I have been getting along quite nicely recently. We've developed our own kind of secret game. She's very enjoyable to converse with, and her M60 brings more suppressive fire than any other handheld gun in the company. I'll try to watch her back. I can't say I trust her in combat just yet cause I haven't seen her enough there."
-"Took a harpoon hit, looked pretty bad, hope you get well soon."
-"Jessica and I seem to talk a lot and hang out often, we're quite good friends. She's got a lot of knowledge past the M60. I enjoy her company!"
-"Now a Lance Corporal after being a First Class for awhile, she's been very consistent for awhile, so it's good to see her having a promotion. We should stop messing around on missions though, and save it for an RnR later or something, could be dangerous for us ;)"
-"While she isn't exactly NCO material, i'll do my very best to get her up to par so I have been teaching her the basics, now officially in my mentorship. Also i'd say our games are pretty entertaining! I can appreciate that."
-"I started mentoring her, and also let her take out a patrol today. It went well! I have high hopes for her, she's learning very fast under so far and i'm quite satisfied with the rate she's progressing."
-"She still has her work cut out for her, but she's improving. Did pretty well on the PT today, but she can do better.."
-"I'm still monitoring her NCO progression carefully, she's lead another successful patrol and she's improving, but I still want to see more. Aside from that, she and I have a great time together on the base doing, well just about anything! She's an extremely kind person, I just hope that having such a trait doesn't come back to bite her. In any case, you being with me out here just makes life that much easier. I never take anything for granted. It's good to have you with me, I wouldn't have it any other way."
-"I've recently gotten wind that people believe Collins and I share a personal/romantic relationship, this is not the case, we are just really good and close friends; atleast currently. I hope and believe she shares the same feeling."
"The new XO for the battalion, CO of our company AFAIK. He's from 17th bn., x-ray co. He's quite smart, he has an agenda which needs to be fulfilled and is quite competent from what i've seen so far. He voluntarily asked for problems of the company, and immediately solved some of the other ones. This is something that hasn't been seen before in any of the leaders i've served under on this base. Glad to have him aboard since our structure has been somewhere like 125 privates to 1 sergeant ratio(thats just regular command, the high command gets worse), we were in desperate need of some high command. He's got a shit-eating grin, which is pretty funny. Some of the guys really like him, and a few don't, tough to tell right now since he literally just came in. We'll see where he goes, til then, he's got my full commitment. I'd say I can trust him pretty well!"
-"On some FUBAR operation today, everyone was split and disoriented due to these hulking metal beasts. I saw HCU Pv2. Corbulo getting pinned by one on a wall, so I emptied a couple mags and affixed my bayonet onto my M4A1, chucking it at the thing to distract it from Corbulo. It worked, but the thing didn't die - it only got angry and was about to grab me when the LT dove and tackled me to the wall, saving my life. Little later, I was covering the LT as he blew down a cooridor on two of the golems, a third one flanked us which was called out by Biggums(thankfully I requested that he hold that flank a couple minutes ago), unfortuantely I wasn't able to escape with them, I prepared for the worst but LT and Biggums came back, shoving their bayonets down the thing's shoulder blades which neutralized it. Though, a little later, another of the damn things cornered me, LT and another guy tried the same thing, but it didn't work. I tried lunging my bayonet when it turned around on them, but they got cut off. It grabbed me, so I pulled the quick release on my rig and backed up, shooting at the grenades on the rig with my glock. It didn't do shit. I got knocked out from the gas and four of em surrounded me, I don't remember what happened afterwards. But in any case, i'm damn glad the LT was there to help us. I'm willing to bet he's got the respect of every man on that mission."
-"LT showed us today he's not afraid to instill discipline among the troops, this means he's tough when he needs to be. By far the most competent form of command we've had in a long time, aside from potentially Hayes."
-"LT made it clear we can bring things up the CoC and speak with him about all matters, he's open minded and competent."
-"Considering I'm being transfered out of the Company and into the 24th CHAD, I'm not gonna lie, probably going to be pretty hard to find a CO as smart, sharp, knowledgeable and open as Disney. Likewise, his men have had a great sense of respect and duty to serve the officer. Not just that, he's got a sense of humor, the best CO I've ever had. What's a man to do in a situation like this, other than, 'oh well, too bad.'. That is the case for this, it'll be tough to find a better CO. Until next time, sir."
Pvt. Pavel 'The Great'
"Well, Pavel is Pavel. He got drunk somehow, I don't understand how that happened. Genuinely a funny guy, but simple guy at the same time. He's reliable, just not someone you'd want to attend your wedding. He seemed to talk a lot with:
Pvt. Damian - Or was it Davion? Damon? I can't remember, think Pavel said Damon as in Matt Damon. He too is funny(just not as much as Pavel), seems like the two keep fighting over small stuff. Makes it a really hilarious situation, good to have refreshing people at the base though. I'll look out for these guys."
-"Pavel brother! I didn't go to the ball today, I was out doing some 'stuff' but I brought back some.. somewhat gifts of the trade you lightweight, drunk mess! ehehahaha!"
-"I got your back, friend, life is good!" -"Pavel shows great leadership potential, he may take things lightly or be mildly drunk off of nothing, but in combat he is sharp."
-"Pavel has shown a bit of an alcohol diet, but I still give him vodka now and then."
HELIX XMO. Strauss
"She speaks too much on the radio, cluttering it. That said, she follows orders swiftly, just lacks some competency. I believe it's improving though, yesterday she reported to me instead of cluttering the radio, that's improvement right there. I decided to give her the promotion because she did a better job than Thompson. However it's tough to tell whether or not Thompson is more competent, even though he's silly. She still needs improvement."
-"Since then, Strauss has joined HELIX as a T/3 and done multiple surgeries to save men. I can respect that, though she still clutters comms here and there. Perhaps sometimes, things just don't change. We'll see, until then, I'll still watch her back so she can save my men.
-"Reliable for information, though some may see her as a snitch. It's tough to tell, really. I guess i'll leave it at a loose mouth."
-"So far, I actually like Strauss quite a bit. She's improved a ton and is very reliable on the field! Lots of improvement, I can see why she's a T/2, infact I think she's T/1 material. Extremely useful and follows orders far faster than she did before."
"Apparently, she's more than T/1 material since she's now the AXMO. Not much to say, she's been consistent with the last time I've checked, one thing to note is that she's a freak for inspections, each time she's exceeded the standards and been a great example."
-"Strauss, now XMO, is the side of HELIX which is a little more pleasant to interact with, atleast, on a casual standpoint. The reason why is, well, she's basically a solid HELIX Unit who maintains the standards of the detachment, while not overstepping their boundaries in the SOP. Ontop of that, the sheer amount of potential and progress she's made is impressive. And each inspection to date she's been a truly exemplary soldier."
HELIX CMO 'Judy'Garland
"She's a wild girl, extremely good at combat and very good as a medic. She's very reliable on the field, but I haven't ever been neck to neck with her on a patrol, she definitely enjoys combat. She tends to take her mask off in sims, I think that's a decent amount of danger, but I think she craves danger. A great person, and like I said, a wild girl. I can rely on her anywhere."
-"Probably the only MPF who doesn't have a pale face, her's is quite tanned."
-"She's kinda crazy, but means well in her work. If I recall correctly she saved a conscripts life in a really hot zone. It's good to see somebody cares. Hope she can get those meds delivered."
-"Great at combat, and serves well as an auxillary leader. She fights very aggressively, with her shock tactics we overran the denizens and were able to recapture the supply drop."
-"The last operation would've been all shit without Judy's help, she was able to get lots of men back to the front in fighting condition, invaluable on that op, to say the least. She's amusing to speak with, we talked a lot about how drugged up most of the HCUs are. She also stood up for everyone else by reporting a potential threat, can't say enough."
-"In today's QRF, she proved extremely useful as a combatant, sometimes I think she's more useful taking lives than saving them. Still, of the men MacLeod brought back, she saved them. An invaluable asset to the company."
-"Garland in general is a very important piece of our composition. She's the leader of the HELIX, that said, it doesn't exempt her from some of her issues. For example, she bends the SOP for combat too often, and is very harsh on her judicial punishments. Despite her flaws, I trust her to build HELIX into a strong detachment and maintain that standard with her pure devotion. So, I suppose my concensus is that she's a very eager combat medic, and I can respect that."
"A grunt i've been speaking a lot with, they know their shit. They might be basic infantry but god damn they speak truth. I will watch out for them and i'm sure they'll do the same for me. Competent as hell too in the field."
-"Seeing as how Nauyokas wasn't a Pv2 yet and had shown combat excellency in the past three days in combat, I recommended him for a promotion. Perhaps I would've to Ackerman as well, but he wasn't on duty today."
-"Nauyokas is hungry for combat, which is good but can be bad. Think the main thing I learned today is he doesn't like people who burn theaters for no reason."
-"Nauyokas was promoted to LCpl. I think he deserves it, however he's spending a lot of time on the grass. He's great for assisting in hazing idiots like Winter when they decide to waste our time."
-"Cpl Nauyokas was promoted, he deserves it for sure, but he can be hard on some of the troops from what i've heard. However, he's competent, that's what matters."
-"Great for inspections of the troops. A reliable NCO, though tough, he is again quite competent."
"An HCU who is surprisingly human, he isn't a cunt like other HCUs. Infact he showed a couple signs of fear, very interesting, he's also quite trustworthy and good in combat."
-"Still quite good at combat, the most reliable HCU so far. I've placed him in my fireteam multiple times because of his consistentcy."
-"Decided to bump him up, he's still the most reliable HCU i've seen yet. I will be keeping an eye on the others, though."
-"Now a LCpl, also in my mentorship, he was a close call with another HCU but Grusenski followed orders the best and was the sharpest of the bunch, but like I said, it was a close call."
-"Touched up on the guidelines of my mentorship, and he has began running drills and stuff, i'm pretty happy with his preformance so far."
"After spending lots of time on base with him, I've placed him in my recon team multiple times and everytime he's proved very skillful. He's good with whatever weapon he's assigned to, and ontop of that he's sharp and follows orders swiftly. Thus, on his 4th mission, I decided to give him the promotion."
-"Still very reliable in field, I put him in my team multiple times and he's never let me down, good man."
-"Continues to be very effective, sharp, and smart. His consistency has netted him another commendation."
"Isaac had some complaints about being assigned to Kingston for his mentor, and I can see where he's coming from. However Kingston needs some experience and needs to learn how to train his men. Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to be going well. Isaac is up-and-coming, but he needs to learn how to lead. He cannot do this without a mentor, therefore Kingston needs to start training him.. and it seems like Kingston isn't."
Cpl. Richard 'Navy' Carter
"An up-and-coming conscript. He showed great leadership potential before an operation, so when my lance corporals didn't show up I field-promoted him to a fireteam leader and he did extremely well. Aside from that, he's pretty competent all around, and quite a funny guy during training exercises, and daily routines on the base. I gave him a commendation but I don't believe it got far, unfortunately. That's too bad, because he's quite a good conscript!"
"Well, the commendation went through! Not just that, but he's shown extensive potential and effort since that point. I am quite pleased with his performances so far, he occasionally may make a mistake but he usually fixes it pretty quickly. Glad to have him as an NCO."
"A somewhat new guy who just got here, but in today's platoon exercises he followed orders and then some, he wasn't afraid of combat and followed me right into potential death wtih an HVT. What a reliable soldier, I thanked him personally after it and was going to give him a promotion, but he already had received one!"
XEO is really a symbol of GRID, or maybe all the GRID's are just like that. He's sorta laid back like the CEO is. In any case, he's got a good brain and understand how far in the shit we are. Something very uncommon at this base. I hope he can push some projects forward to improve our small arms specifically. I haven't seen him in combat at all, but if he's out there i'll do my best to cover him."
-"Marcel has built most of the last base, and this base, he's extremely good at it."
"A tough on the inside man who seems to genuinely care about his men. He's not afraid to be strict, and he is very much competent. I respect that. If only there were men like him on the field, we wouldn't have as much of a problem with casualties. I'd follow him into combat any day."
-"I've been speaking to the grunts a lot, especially in wake of yesterday, and all share the same mindset: they have nothing but respect for you. Some note your inexperience, however what's important to others and I is that you are a good leader. That you are." -"The captain has shown a lot of skill in his patrols. Unlike other patrol leaders, he usually leads squads or platoon sized elements and focuses on those two, assigning leaders to each. Rather than the traditional, more shit style of the conscripts, which is 'I'm sergeant and i'll lead this time, you lead that team corporal and heres the plan but we'll never remain fluid and communicate'. The fact is: when a squad leader has two fireteams with two fireteam leaders, the whole unit cohesion rises greatly as the fireteams can focus on orders and surroundings, while the squad leader has extremely high awareness of the AO and doesn't get tunnel vision. Now that - is a good combat leader."
Sgt. Ross Fletcher
"Good Corporal, best corporal i've seen by far. He's tough, but he's competent. That's just the way it should be. Ontop of that, he's very real and human, not like some of the other guys around here. Carrys around a big ass RPG-7." -"There isn't much to say, because my original statement was spot on and hasn't really wavered, or changed that much. He's doing a great job, and is still the best Corporal thus far. He's adapting to the mobile methods of our tactics, and that's great, because he'll give me the juristiction to control my fireteam the way I know they can gain the most effectiveness."
-"Apparently he goes by Rocket Man, I've seen this used once, by himself.. In any case, Richard Carter wanted to be Rockette Man or some crap, dunno how that works. Fletcher is now a Sergeant, i'd say he's pretty fit for the role, again nothing much to say here cause he's been consistent as hell."
Pfc. Maxwell Osei
"While i've yet to seen him in combat, he's a new recruit who just came in. I taught him everything and then some, and he was sharp throughout the entirety of it. I mean DEAD sharp, never seen a recruit like him. Good guy, gonna watch out for him, i'd love to have him in my fireteam, so I think. We'll see!"
-"Osei has shown great preformance in combat and on base, he's well disciplined and follows orders sharply and quickly. I've bumped him up a rank, I believe he's got quite the potential! He's quite up and coming so we'll see where he will be going."
"I haven't spoken to him too much, he's your good all around infantry grunt. I haven't had enough time in combat, nor on base to form an opinion of him yet, however being a grunt and embracing it is good enough for me. We'll see in the future."
-"So Biggums is a very eccentric grunt. He's smart and knows to cover our flanks, check corners all that good stuff a grunt should know but doesn't actually do. However he's a bit too fast paced. A single mistake and before you know it he'd be the one crossing the river while half the platoon is left behind. He's got his place though, 100% a pointman kind of grunt, perfect for scouting mines and enemy positions. If he keeps up the same attitude and starts leading teams though, he's gonna get men killed from his action movie tactics. He speaks kinda weird, but that's alright. I trust him enough to have him watch my back, but he's still too fast paced. Keep running ahead and you will step into a landmine, remember, slow is smooth and smooth is fast."
-"Biggums saved my ass with the LT, and followed orders swiftly, I trust this man quite a bit."
"A newly promoted private who has shown quite a standard combat ability. He's extremely thoughtful and we spoke a lot about why we're here, why we're fighting, and reflected on the previous mission. Interesting soldier. He'd like to speak to that Denizen, Beatrice, because he feels remorse for what we did, however, i'm certain a good soldier like him can find hope and continue fighting. He shows a little too many emotions and gets sidetracked though. Regardless, I'll watch out for him."
-"Edwards is Edwards, there's actually not a lot to say about this conscript. In general, there's a distaste for him among the veterans because he seeks authority too often apparently, I haven't seen him enough in combat to be certain, I noticed he followed SOP, but I can see where they're coming from. In particular they didn't like how he left men behind."
"He's a funny GRID who we(Jessica and I) messed around with, Nauyokas came by and messed with him too. He was really funny, whether he intended to be or not.. Though it began to seem like he didn't understand our jokes, thankfully Nauyokas managed to trip on nothing and eat some of Hill's paintcans, and I chucked a chocolate bar towards him after to show that I wasn't mad at him. A little later Jessica and I caught him doimg some maintenance work on the vents, Nelson was kinda mad at him, I don't really know GRID shit so I couldn't care less. A vent open in the shower is just a bigger vent if you think about it, but it's good to see that Hills is checking our base for it's condition."
"Juliet's got a pretty fucked up backstory, from what they have told me. That said, Juliet is by far the nicest, non-stupid, HCU i've ever seen and met. I haven't witnessed Juliet in combat, so I have nothing to say there, but they're nice to 'speak' to. They're an odd size, but it all adds up from their backstory. Sneaked in two on me though.."
-"Took a harpoon hit like a boss, then again, they are an HCU.."
-"Apparently burned down the theater under command of Kingston, can't exactly blame Juliet, Kingston needs to be responsible for his actions though, not just say 'redirect it to JURY."
02 Victor Moreau
"A JURY unit who does their job and just their job, only. Huge respect to them, as they're reliable when called upon, they do their job and don't ask questions nor interfere with stuff not their business. And at doing their job, they do it extremely well. Moreau is very manipulative and can get answers out of all kinds of suspects. I couldn't ask for more. Also, surprisingly unique for only this unit, is that this unit actually converses like a normal person! They aren't constantly suspecting you of weird shit, or threatening you with blackmarks 24/7. Haven't witnessed them in combat, but I don't really expect them to be in combat."
"I keep mispronouncing his name and mispelling it, but whatever. He's quite an active GRID, and while I haven't seen him do as much construction work as the XEO, he's still very useful. I think he's a taaaad bit too jumpy though, GRID is GRID though, i'm not gonna hate on him for being not perfect at combat. Jumped up the ranks fast, but that doesn't mean much in GRID to be honest. He does his part. I can respect that.
"Not much to say on him, I mean we talk and he's nice to speak with. We can converse like normal people, without talking about blackmarks, codes, and other criminal crap. But aside from that he does police stuff while I do combat stuff. The men don't seem to love him, but they don't seem to hate him. He adminstered 2 blackmarks to me for blocking the camera, LT later asked me why I did it, I told him it was to cover for everyone else writing crap on JURY. I'd do it again, i'm willing to take the blow for the men if it's only me who takes a blow, why punish 10 men when you can only punish one? I'll take that any day. These are the men I live by, and see die each day, they deserve some relief from the stress, not to be blackmarked by something so petty. I don't hate Divisional for it, he's just doing his job, policing the base. As am I, covering my men."
-"Well, he removed the Blackmarks after I told him why I did it. He also shed some light on how he would've been ok with us messing around for fun, unlike some of the city-transfers he has a lot of outland-base experience. Interesting."
"He might be basic HCU infantry but he's got some fair points about our leadership at SIDEWINDER. I will watch out for him and i'm sure he'll do the same for me. Pretty competent as hell too in the field."
"An HCU who has thus far proved to be very good in combat and on base. I've had many interactions with him in these scenarios, and next to none with just casual chatter, that said, he's a very useful asset. As with most HCU's, he is kinda slow in the head and doesn't snap to orders, but I can't blame him, drugs are drugs."
-"Fox is pretty up-and-coming, I need to see more before making a definite opinion of him, but thus far he's been following orders sorta alright in combat, once you tell him what to do, he'll get to it. But TELLING HIM is hard, because he's so drugged up and slow, sometimes it's just hard to get words into that brain of his."
-"Well, Fox isn't terrible, unlike other HCUs, he actually is useful outside of combat. Infact, It's quite odd, because he's more useful than other HCUs outside of combat, but less useful than some HCUs inside of combat. It's quite an interesting set of traits for your generic HCU. In any case, he's extremely helpful on the base. Still can be slow though, for example, he called Walkings 'Sir', oh well."
"Gabunia is a fresh HELIX from what I know and have seen, however he's sharp in combat, and efficient as a medic. Ontop of that, he's quite a generous unit unlike some of the other HELIX. He accepted a cook position and cooked up some really good food! Good guy, i'll watch out for him."
"Winkler has been up and coming for a long time. He's proved himself to be a capable and solid HELIX unit time and time again. I have no complaints about this unit, only praise. He's done a great job for HELIX thus far. He follows orders, he tends to wounded, and he does so sharply. Good man."
Pvt. Jace Yumez
A new infantryman who understands how deep in the fucking shit we are, and how command in many ways has either been inadequate or just completely hung us out to dry. Haven't seen him in combat enough to see if I trust him completely, but I will watch over him.
-Not the sharpest in combat, it is what it is.
"Kurowski is pretty up-and-coming, he was shipped in about two weeks ago but has shown quite a lot of effort and potential. Unfortunately I haven't seen him on any of the recent missions, but it is what it is. I hope to see more of this soldier, since in combat he's very efficient."
SSgt. Johnathan Black
He's a good leader, he's smart and knows his tactics. But he's disconnected from his men, it's like he doesn't care about knowing them. He just cares that he completes the operation. He won't lose men for no reason, but it really does seem like he's willing to sacrifice any amount to get to his objective. Instead of spending time with his men as someone like Fletcher or Harris would, he spends time with the DvL. Funny thing is, I bet the DvL feels the same way as him. This is why a lot of the guys around me don't really trust him in combat or in general. However, I think his competency will pay off, I'd still follow him into combat, albeit wary.
-Cooks up a really nice fish & chips, it was delicious. He seems to be getting more support of the men, including mine, and ontop of that, he also is contemplating getting rid of his stupid hat. That's a plus in everyones book!
-Today THE corporal screwed up again, and Black made sure she knew it, good man. -So heres the deal with Black. He's competent, sometimes disconnected but he's been improving greatly on that, most men like him now, including me. He's also been spending a lot less time with the divisional, which also ties into how more of us trust him. At times he can make bad decisions, however unlike the other staff sergeant, Black actually makes decisions. The other staff sergeant isn't even fucking there to make any choices! What kind of leader is that? Anyways.. that said, the other day he recommended Kingston be promoted to Corporal. The captain, to our delight, shot this down. Now I don't know if Black was misinformed or what, but in a lot of our eyes it was Kingston's slow and incompetency which got tons wounded and overall failed the mission. He(kingston) didn't even check on the men after the operation. Black should think things through and seek to-date intel when he can, that said, I still will follow him into combat. He's slowly but surely gaining respect from us, it's just that act made us all lose a bit..
-Today MSgt. Black was trying to lead a shock attack on Lambda, we successfully hit 1 outpost and overran another, but when we got to the main outpost we were met with highly prepared rebels. I guess a scout got us or fletcher's team. In any case, we got hit pretty hard. When we RTB'd Black apologized for the patrol's failure. I was with Isaac and Nauyokas, and the three of us gained quite a bit of respect for the man from this action. Not many leaders have the common decency to accept their failures and try to make up for it.
-Well, Black got hit from the Brass and is now a LtCol. He gave me his M9 before leaving, but such is life. Seeya later Black.
CEO is a cool guy, just like the XEO. They are laid back, however understand the problems surrounding the 24th Battalion. Also like the XEO, he's nice to talk to, however he is busy doing nothing quite often. I suppose that's quite funny. I haven't seen him in combat much because he isn't a grunt, however I have seen him in his APCs and he was able to provide fast, fire support."
-"Not very good in infantry combat.."
-"CEO needs to learn his place, he screwed up the formations today from his incompetence."
-"Yeah, he's good to talk to! Just not very good to fight alongside."
-"Well, the CEO has been a little better than before, but, I still can't say much on his competence. Outside of that, he's a pretty cool figure."
Pvt. Alice Lacroix
Not to be confused with the other Lacroix, apparently Alice is(completely) unrelated to the other one. Apparently she's been in the company since SIDEWINDER, however I haven't seen her til today. Regardless, she's an advanced-spec Marksman, which is interesting because this was never charted. I haven't interacted with her much outside of combat, she seems to follow orders quickly enough, but I can't say she's extremely sharp or extremely dull. I just haven't seen enough from her. Sorta like early-Strauss, she can clutter the radio. Once I got my orders to her, she can carry them out well enough, and doesn't break discipline as often as early-Strauss. Well, we'll have to see where she goes..
Two Ex-Navy Heavy Conscript Units
"One of em are called Fury. Cool guys, they stick together. Spoke to em a bit. Pretty chill and good to hang out with, refreshing, but they listen to sand music. On the other hand, the sand music was able to trick a deni into coming over, which then I was able to apprehend. So they're smart, too.. I just don't like the music. Can't tell if they're funny or just stupid, though. I mean, most HCUs are usually thick headed from those stim drugs and shit. They carry around an annoying ass radio, though. Again, dunno to laugh or sigh from stupidity."
-"They are pretty good to talk to, though. Still drugged up and augmented..."
Ensign Ozawa Ooyodo
"A Japanese naval officer who's really good looking and doesn't let anyone mess with her. She doesn't take shit, but doesn't give shit to people either. She's quite nice, from the interactions I've had with her I can say she's very intelligent and smart, with lots of wit."
"A HCU, but isn't a complete dickhead from what I've seen. He doesn't say much, says what's needed, which is usual of HCU behavior. Helpful in combat, even though somewhat reluctant. Good to have him."
"A HELIX who is good at HELIX'ing, but sort of meh in combat. He's smart and follows orders quickly though, which makes up for his lackluster combat ability."
"Honestly, he's helpful on missions and not much more. Not much to say about him, since he doesn't do much on the FOB aside from eat oxygen. That said, he's nice to talk to, just doesn't do much."
"Another nice infantry guy, who received CSW training as well. In combat, he is sometimes distracted but when I was able to get ahold of him he had no problem following me in. Spoke with him a bunch and he's got some humanity left in him, good man."
"Quite the badass, shame I don't see him more often!"
Not too bad of a first recruit! Very attentive and listened to my instructions, however he was recruited at a pretty calm time, so I hope they don't get the wrong idea.
Pvt. Parrish - Came in with Pvt. Wright, again quite an attentive recruit and pretty sharp, he had apparently fired rifles beforehand. They were both fresh recruits who had no experience in the military, I'll keep an eye out for them both. Hopefully they, again, don't get the wrong picture of his place, because it was really calm and eeriely peaceful at the time.
Pvt. Vasiliy - Close friend to Pavel, from childhood or something, I do not know him so well. Pavel trusts him and therefore so do I! He has no problem following my lead in things, better for operations to run smoothly, a good infantryman!
Pvt. Thompson - Thompson is strange, he seems to mess around at serious times and be serious at messing around times. That said, he's still a grunt, so i'll cut him some slack.
-Thompson was pretty helpful in combat today, and he too doesn't like movies getting taken away for no reason.
Louis Bastille - This guy, kinda like Judy, doesn't wear the facemask too often. He was somewhat willing to play ball when Nick was at the base, albeit unenthusiastic, however he genuinely seemed like an all-around cool guy. Haven't been able to witness what he does with GRID or in combat, so I can't say i'd let him watch my back when we're surrounded by zombies. Still, I'd get him a beer if he ever wanted one.
Pvt. Eric Moors - Poor guy, I barely know him, only got his name after I gave him some medical aid before the HELIX grabbed him. I'm looking out for you, better watch out for that Gary guy. Hope you recover fast brother.
-Havent really seen you in awhile, though I do know you hate Gary's guts.
Three Australians - Good guys, also were willing to follow my lead with no objections. They're polite and seem like good, willing grunts. One was wounded, I took care of him and I hope he'll recover soon.
-Pvt. Barnes stands out from them, he's pretty good all around, glad to have him with us!
Pvt. Marvin - A recruit who just transferred in, he seems to know his stuff, for sure. I'll watch over him, but I'm somewhat convinced he doesn't need my immediate help.
Pvt. Van Shan - He's a grunt who follows orders fast and efficiently. Carries around a standard M16, he doesn't wear helmets for some reason. Haven't spoken to him much outside of combat, though I know he has a distaste for JURY and Kingston like some of the men here. Overall he's a good man, never let me down in combat.
-Hates Kingston for burning down the theater, I can understand how he feels.
Sgt. Harris - I haven't talked to this guy a lot, but i've seen how he acts and he is definitely one of the better NCOs around here. I'm glad he's with us, he might even be the best i've seen yet. He's got my full commitment so far.
-Well, check that, cause I haven't really seen this guy in combat or at all! Sorta like that other staff sergeant.
Pvt. Ronalds - A grunt, but he followed orders well for what little time i've interacted with him.
-He can be kind of slow.
-Unfortuantely, in the same day, he drove a humvee into a friendly minefield, shit happens, find peace man.
Pvt. Royce - A grunt who seemed to be quite distracted or slow during PT, though he showed signs of improvement and he was actually quite smart in combat! He understood that since he didn't have an optic, he had no chance of scouting and kept his head down and hidden.
Pvt. McDermott - Female conscript who reported an incident of a conscript being wounded onbase, essentially allowing me to save Tretskov's life, great job.
Pvt. Bakmon - Keeps wanting to spar us, or just me. Anyways, i'll take him on today.
New recruits from Czech and 1 other - You guys will be fine as well! Perhaps Pavel will speak czech, I do not, sorry, and I was drunk.. I will keep an eye on you, I'm sure Eddy will too!
Pvt. 'American/Kelly' - American who hated the pizza. Didn't get to see him much in any combat, he would seem to be an alright man. Some call him Kelly. I never caught his name.
-Heard you got deserviced, find peace man.
Sasha something - A journalist or something? Helps out a ton at the base, extremely useful. I don't like it when he comes on patrols though, another guy to watch out for and that means we have less cohesion. It is what it is though. Nice to have around. -Got in a fight with private Nayoukas, near unacceptable in my book. Sorry, you had to go, this is no place for non-combatants.
Pvt. Oliver James - I see some potential in you! Keep it up and you'll survive, just stay sharp and stay safe. This place has a higher casualty rate than any other place in the damn country. He entered my training with:
Pvt. Henry - Uhhhh. You managed to follow orders at a rapid pace, but you are a bit odd, I'll still watch for you two though.
LCpl. Kingston - He's a good NCO, needs to toughen up but bottom line is he's competent and good. He's a nice leader, has my commitment as well.
-Unfortunately, he still seems a little too new on some things, he managed to mix up the ROE's today somehow, and Gary was saying something about a failed patrol, but gary is gary..
He also completely disregarded the input of a subordinate because the subordinate was "not an NCO", I've lost most of my respect for him. This is not an aspect of a good leader.
-Well, turns out rumors weren't just rumors, dunno where Kingston lost his way, he was on a good path and threw it all away it seems. We'll have to see where you go, oddball.
-Claims to be quite good at planning, not so good at fighting. I think you have a place, but the frontline may not be it, friend.
-CEO was on time, our marksman team was on time, but where were you? I'm afraid the men are losing faith.
-Kingston lead a seperate team today, while his team suffered two wounds, he did what had to be done quick and efficiently, I believe he's improving!
-He uh.. burned a theater down.. which was staffed by unarmed people, because it was selling alcohol? Because the owner of it looked like a girl? That's terrible. He won't own up to it and instead redirected everyone to JURY, Ironic.
-However, he did come up to speak to me about it privately, which is technically the professional thing to do, but grunts don't do professional, we do what's morally right, and that would be telling everyone face to face. I guess it's a difference of tradition and culture, or.. kingston is just kingston. Who knows. I guess it's a start, to taking responsibility, he just needs to do it face to face with the men if he wants respect from them. I taught him a few examples and some tricks, hopefully he can start improving again. Morale has been god awful and we really don't need him to damage it anymore than both the denizens, and he have already done. I think overall he understands his mistake. That's good.
-We had another mission today, I placed Kingston incharge of the more stagnant group, giving him machinegunners and basic riflemen while I took charge of the recon team, taking marksmen and a SAW. He was able to hold his ground and order his men to good cover, I believe i've come to a sort of a conclusion on this complicated leader. I believe he's not fit to lead platoons or squads, however if you give him a bunch of riflemen and tell him to hold a point, he will do so without question and make sure his men do, too. In other words, he doesn't make the plan, but he carries out orders without hesitation. I can say at this time, i'm glad to have him as a fireteam leader. Kingston is a good man to micromanage basic orders to infantry.
-Gotta give Kingston his credit, he gave me operational authority which allowed me to control the battlefield the way I wanted to, which would net the highest effectiveness and the lowest casualty rate, like I said, I believe he's a good team leader to carry out orders, just not make them. That's reliable if you look at the full picture.
02 Brian Eberhardt - A JURY unit which, like Waters, is extremely annoying. They're constantly messing with other people's business, and won't shut up about their stupid rulebook in their pocket. The highest point of incompetence from this unit in particular comes from him pulling us out during a firefight to let us know that we've got to turn in our radios, or he'll blackmark us. What a bunch of crap. Recently on a mission, he started talking and spewing bullshit about some private firing off a shot, in the middle of a stealth operation, during combat! I hate bullshit, and I hate incompetency. He's a mixture of both, but atleast he's active, I suppose. Still yet to see him do anything but annoy me, and annoy other grunts. Nobody seems to like him, and he seems to have brought that onto himself.
Pvt. Spinger - You have a brain! Use it! Stick with your team. I know you're new but what the fuck..
T/3. Zeal - New guy who just shipped in, GRID, not much to say, he's pretty friendly though. We'll have to see where he goes.
New connies coming from Germany and England - You'll be fine, I'll keep an eye out for you two.
'The Girth' - Big man, got his autograph because of a dare. Don't know where he got the nickname from, everyone thinks he's gay, though.
-I don't think he's gay though, he told Eddy he didn't like dudes because Eddy asked him out to the ball, I don't know if Eddy is gay or not. In any case, he's a pretty cool guy for what little talk we did.
Pvt. Sophia Taylor - Hope you find some peace in this world.
Cpl. Russel - The other competent Corporal, aside from Fletcher. He's not as active as Fletcher, so I can't tell who's better, but I know for sure he's better than those other two idiots.
-Check that, he was demoted for inactivity.
-And he's been on a watchlist for insubordination and refusal of orders.. Not very smart, either. He seems to have lost the respect of HELIX and other grunts, as well. Nowhere nearly as good as Fletcher.
Pvt. Ludvik - Constantly annoying command to go on a patrol this, patrol that, just wait until he gets killed, everyone is sick of him.
-Apparently believes that burning down the theater is the right thing to do, reinforces the belief of him being an idiot.
Some dumb female Cpl./ 'Rhyss' - You got the heavy unit killed, you've gotten conscripts killed before, come on. I don't trust you and will not follow you into combat, you are too incompetent and put everyone in that situation. That was your fault! Don't put the blame on the dead when you put us in there! Take some responsibility for your actions. -Left an entire fireteam behind, and didn't even notice. There were three of us and ontop of that people who were with her even heard us calling over the radio. How does one complete a patrol report if they don't even know who was on it? Luckily Sergeant Black wasn't gonna let it slide and made sure she understood to not do it again, or so I hope. Aside from that when there's no action, I had some time to speak with her and unfortunately, she's pretty dry and boring. One thing is for sure, she trains recruits often. If you ask me, that's precisely the definition of a POG. Not hating on POGs, just saying POGs shouldn't be leading patrols, getting men killed. If you were just training recruits and managing base stuff, I probably wouldn't hate you this much, sorry but combat failures are near unacceptable when the line is so thin between life and death.
-Stay out of the field, POG, and while you're at it, try not to confuse the grunts around here with your 'signs', most of us dislike you as it is..
02 'Gary' Waters - I'm really REALLY starting to hate this guy, he never plays fair in sims, never really talks to anyone, has pictures of KPA Communist Dictators in his office. He's an alright guy, and good to talk to. However, his actions seem to not care about casualties and ontop of that he has burnt THREE fucking conscripts to this date, one with very severe injuries, eric moors. -Gary wasn't so bad today, I assisted him in clearing a warehouse and detaining some people. His act reminded me that of a metrocop. Still doesn't explain how he's getting away with burning EOW's and Conscripts legally, but that is above my paygrade since he reports to the Divisional...
-Inactive, and nobody at all likes him, then again, who likes crappy JURY units?
Aggressive HCU - Don't like you very much, disrespectful to everyone.
Conscript 'Ziggler' - Some german psychopath from Munich. Tells me how he doesn't like playing basketball, then tells me how he killed a bunch of conscripts before joining. What a fucking weirdo.
-he shot himself.
Relations(Denizens)-Hated|Disliked|Neutral|Acquaintence/Trusted|Friend|Close| [REDACTED] 'Dickweed' - I could get in trouble doing this, but in any case, it's great to talk to you. A refreshing perspective on things. It goes to show that there's still bits and pieces of humanity left around on this planet, a scenario alike the WW1 Christmas Truce is a dream I will strive to live in! Until then, i'll have to keep an eye on the ones around you.
McCormick - A denizen who came by to return Private Ronald's dogtags, much appreciated.
-She came by again today to return another fallen private's dogtags(S. Taylor), they were from a patrol earlier today by the Hotel. She said it's the honorable thing to do, much respect to her.
-I ran into her again during a patrol, we also ran into a 45th female and -------, she was giving dogtags again! I took them gratefully, however quickly, because shortly after there was a massive gunfight. Thankfully ------- managed to escape in time. An interesting person.
-Interestingly enough, the same day I was informed that she had signed up and joined, was the same day she dissapeared from the battlements. We believe she was kidnapped, I wonder how good of a soldier she would've been, after all, she seemed quite laid back, just handing over dogtags and stuff; mysterious.
Bo Chu - A chinese restaurant owner who's establishment we stormed and searched him. Though he agreed to deliver noodles to us should we provide him with soem supplies and a car, therefore I suppose i'm happy with this guy. Cpl Nauyokas broke his windows, but we shrugged it off as a denizen sniper and he seemed to buy it, he was pretty angry about us pointing guns and stuff while he was closed, I think it was overall funny, I can understand why he might be mad. We'll be back for food.
Prisoner 05 'Buckethead'
"A prisoner who's been very compliant and hard working for the duration he spent in the work block. Infact, he was so consistent at one point he had about 19-27 bottles which he turned into me for a couch and a lamp. The interesting part of this individual was his bucket, he never was without it. Regardless of this, I never cared enough to take it off, outside of security measures atleast. I let him go along with the other prisoners when we moved out, haven't seen him since. I imagine a hard working man should be doing pretty well wherever he goes, but then again, you can never be sure. He could just be a manipulative serial killer."
'Nick' - Guy who came by to turn in his gun. He did so and then offered to play basketball with us, he's different like the rest of them, he's got some humanity left in him. Good guy. He's way too good at basketball, kept beating me everytime.. I can't even get past the guy and he's dunking over the front gate! Was willing to give me some tips as I wasn't really good at basketball.
Eileen - Dunno why I trust you, just felt like the right thing to do. But i'll remember our plan. I hope you do too.
'Oliver' - Poor guy who isn't meant for this place, hope he finds peace somewhere. We let him go after he was found clean, just looked like a hungry guy. He said rude things on his way out but that's normal, I can tolerate that.
3/2 5th Conscript Infantry Divison'Red Diamond', 2nd Con. Rec. Regt. , 3rd Con. Bn. , Golf Co. , 2nd Platoon(Scout-Snipers) - I carry a bit less gear, and there's far less training, but i'm totally going to get myself killed over here. Miss you guys, i'd say good luck, but I need it more than you do.
Bo Cho's Chinese Food - Good, hearty and reliable chinese food. place is a neutral zone, I like their food much more than slice of italy, that's for sure. what a great establishment, kill some armed rebels and then eat some food!
-Very good food! Great, friendly guy!
GRID Detachment of 24th Con. Bn. - You guys are really helpful so far, and all GRID's i've spoken to are good men. From the CEO down to his men. Of course, I don't see you guys too often on the frontline but your APC's have proven helpful, as have your repair work. Men like Aiden, XEO Marcel do serious work on repairs. People like Louis are entertaining to speak with. Still need the MP7 tuned up though, thing is so damn inaccurate.
Rogerson Movie Theater thing - Well, he seems to be neutral, it's just everytime people try to watch a movie everyone starts killing each other. Atleast he's trying. That movie really sucked, but I have faith in him showing better ones. He's very open minded!
-So uhh.. Kingston burned your theater down. ..I don't know what to say....
24/1 1st Conscript Infantry Divison, 1st Con. Inf. Regt. . 24th Con. Bn. , Alpha Co. , 1st Platoon(Infantry) - I'm going to die in this place.
-Well, atleast we have a good mix of air, arty, apc, and infantry. The term is 'integrated assault' but nobody uses it.. Still sucks here though.
-We're getting our asses handed to us by the denis.. We're getting wasted. Morale is shit.
-We're still getting fucking wasted! Each day I see atleast 10 men die. ATLEAST! Morale is nearly nonexistant. We cannot win any engagement. What the fuck is going on with this crap? 4 conscripts today couldn't even get issued DMRs!
-Lots of new recruits, always tell em different words with the same meaning: Stick with me, learn some tips from the guys around you, don't do anything stupid, and you'll do just fine.
-So, 1st Lieutenant Disney was shipped in the other day, a transfer. This is good news to me, atleast. See, there's a lack of concern for grunts the higher you go, surprisingly, Disney was the opposite, he seemed to show lots of concern. Then brings us to the combat leader problem, frontline NCOs commonly lack innovation, creativity and the ability to think, plan and coordinate teams rapidly as the situation changes. Objectives need to be clearly stated so combat leaders can take that information and put it forward towards the overall success of the mission. Even the highest things like Briefings will give random information which don't really pertain to the mission, while it's good for the background information, what use it that info if it can't be applied to the operation at hand? The modern battlefield, especially with guerillas requires all of these to be checked, the battlefield is more dynamic than ever. Here's hoping LT Disney changes stuff.
-Well, life over here isn't so bad, SIDEWINDER was bad, but this isn't so bad! Low casualties, high success rate on all missions, hell there's even room for mistakes and on-the-field training. Good men, nice girl, yeah - not bad at all!
1st Conscript Infantry Divison, 1st Con. Inf. Regt. . 24th Con. Bn. , Charlie Co., 2nd Platoon(Armor) - Thank you so much for bringing those tanks over! Oorah!
HCU Detachment of the 24th Con. Bn. - You're all dumb and drugged up. A couple of you are funny like the ex-navy guys and a couple of you are actually smart like Juliet. But for the most part, you're all assholes and pigs to be sent onto the front. That's just my experience with you guys so far..
HELIX Detachment of the 24th Con. Bn.- Interacting with HELIX has given me a bad taste in my mouth. Yet there are still some angels. For example, Anya or whoever doesn't like talking or speaking with anyone period, nor is she ever on duty. Winter is a dick from what i've both seen and heard. CMO and XMO aren't really on duty ever, either. On the other hand, Jones has proven to be helpful while serving in my fireteam, he was still extremely distracted when getting shot at. I guess most HELIX's aren't meant for combat. Judy is the exception here, she's one of the baddest, badass people on this base. She can be angel and save lives while kicking ass equally well. Strauss has saved many men after they came back bleeding like a stuck pig, but sorta like Jones she's not the best at combat.
JURY Detachment of the 24th Con. Bn. - Some men are alright to speak with, like Victor I believe the name was. Some are even nice to speak with, such as the Divisional. And some are still alright to speak with, yet sadistic like Gary. Overall, JURY is too disconnected with the base it's on. They have proven useful in weeding out the shitheads, but in that process they've driven a divide between them and the common grunt. Lots of distrust has formed in doing this. Most people watch their back being around JURY, it's never certain whether or not they're your friend.
-Wonder what JURY thinks about Kingston burning down the NZ.. I might ask them if I get a chance.
-Decided not to, JURY still sucks. Though I guess that's part of their job. I am somewhat fond of some of their units, like Moreau or Risterwald, but I can't say I trust them, or anything of that nature. In general units like Waters and Eberhardt have left a bit of a bitter taste in my mouth.
Italian Pizza guys - Your pizza sucks, but you're pretty nice for delivering it.
UU - Being honest, you took away our world. Even if the fighting stops, what is left?
ask if u want me to add a faction or deni or connie or toilet
you can also request an update if you'd like.
