Chapter 4 0800
It was morning now. I am back in the gunning seat of the tank. We were on a new objective now. We were headed to patrol an airstrip that was vital to our military success. It was recently attacked and reports said that it was going to be attacked again soon.
We arrived at 1000 hours and started to secure a perimeter. When we had secured it, we were to stay there until we were told to come back. Now it got really hot inside the tank in the afternoon sun. I climbed out of the tank for a stretch and saw people literally cooking stuff on the turret of their tank. It was a sight to see. I looked to the east and saw the airstrip. It was a wonder that this run down piece of concrete was so important. It was about 1400 hours when planes and helicopters started coming in. They landed and gave us supplies. A C-130 landed and a whole bunch of soldiers came running out. Then another C-130 came and landed and delivered several 155 mm artillery that was placed right next to the airstrip. The next thing I knew was that there were buildings being built from all the supplies. There was a medical bay, a mess hall, an officerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s cabin, barracks, and repair shop. There were anti aircraft guns set up every 50 meters. I admired all of the equipment said aloud, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Nothings getting through here alive.Ã¢â‚¬Â The sarge must have heard me because he came up behind me.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Yeah, I think even with all the planning that someone could possibly plan, they wouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be able to penetrate our defenses.Ã¢â‚¬Â
As I turned to go to the mess hall, I heard sound reports of small arms fire and tank shells being fired. I had left my rifles in the tank. All I had was my .45. I drew my gun, took the safety off and bolted towards the tank. As I was running, I saw that in the distance, there were hundreds and hundreds of insurgents and 50 tanks that I could see. I ran even faster than I had ever run in my entire life. I found the tank and jumped to get inside. As I jumped up onto the roof of the tank I realized that the hatch was looked. I knocked on it and kept yelling for the driver to open. I looked up and saw the insurgents drawing closer and closer. I opened fire on the closest one and watched as the corpse fell from the heavy slug and paint the desert sand a disgusting color.
The hatch finally opened and I fired 3 more shots before I jumped inside. I put the safety on the pistol and locked the hatch. I jumped in the gunner seat. Behind me I heard Ã¢â‚¬Å“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ready to fire sir.Ã¢â‚¬Â
I centered the cross hairs on the biggest vehicle. I opened fire and watched it explode. Brad reloaded, and I fired again. The magnificence of all of the tanks firing simultaneously was wonderful. We watched as a row smoke hit the ground destroying everything in a 10 foot radius.
The 155 mm artillery rounds from the airstrip rained down on the enemy. As Brad was reloading, I watched as so many explosions were going off. The next thing I knew was that some of our tanks were destroyed. I saw as a tank shell landed right next to us. The explosion knocked the tank on the side. There was still one shell left inside the barrel. I thought, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Might as well use it to good use.Ã¢â‚¬Â I pulled the trigger one last time and crawled out of the tank pulling with me my 2 rifles and Brad who was still in shock from the explosion. We crawled out just in time before another tank shell hit the tank and it exploded.
I felt and explosion in my leg as burning shrapnel grazed it. I just kept running with Brad. Sarge and the driver were nowhere to be seen. We ran straight into the medical bay where I finally turned around to see our half of our wall of tanks were destroyed. There were planes flying everywhere dropping bombs on the insurgents but the insurgents just kept coming and coming. I looked down at my leg and saw that it was bleeding freely. The medic ran up to me and she grabbed a bandage and started to bandage my wound. I lay down on an army cot and picked up my rifle. I looked at the window and saw that the stream of insurgents had finally dwindled a little bit and we were now beating them back. I lay back thinking about home again.

Chapter 3, 1 day later 2200
I sat down against the wall. The sarge and Brad were pacing around contemplating about where our backup was. We were constantly under attack and we couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t go anywhere. We were trapped and cornered. We were running low on supplies and there was still no sign of our backup. Then it finally came. The moment we were all dreading. We were now out of ammunition. We now either had to fight with our hands and be gunned down or be taken as a P.O.W. I came to the realization that we would probably die here. Just as I closed my eyes to go to sleep, I heard a loud explosion, many people screaming and sarge and Brad were yelling joyfully. I crawled up to my feet and saw the best thing that I would ever see in my whole career. I saw a whole battalion coming in from the north. There were tanks and airs support and hundreds of troops. I ran downstairs and headed out along with Sarge and Brad and we ran up and greeted the closest soldiers. We told them our situation and how we never came in contact with the other squad.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“No worries chum, we got you covered.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The man guided us over to a supply truck where we took all of the ammunitions that we needed. Since I still had Point manÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s rifle, I chose to keep it just in case we ever needed it.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“You guys can just hop in this tank. We took some fire earlier and 3 of the crew got killed so we only have a driver for the tank. We could use your help.Ã¢â‚¬Â
We agreed. I was the first in. I popped open the hatch and crawled in. Inside, it was dark and hot. The only light came from a red light attached on the ceiling. We could see another man sitting in the front who looked back surprised to see us.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Hey donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t shoot, were friends. We are here to replace your dead crewmembers.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The man relaxed and continued to drive ahead.
I was voted the gunner so I got into the gunner seat and looked inside the periscope. Inside the periscope, everything was a sickly green of the night vision. I could see ahead of the tank.
We heard the muffled sound of gunfire outside of the tank. I rushed to swivel the turret around and see what was going on. We had come in contact with some insurgents. I centered a truck full of insurgents in my crosshairs and opened fire.
The sound of the shell being shot was deafening. My ears were ringing but the truck had disappeared into a fireball which glowed a bright white in the green night vision. Brad was assigned to reload and tell me when it was time to shoot. He quickly pulled open the hatch to the barrel and put inside a fresh shell.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Ready to fire!Ã¢â‚¬Â
I put my cross hairs on a big group of insurgents running away from the battalion. I opened fire and saw the insurgents fly into the air. Even inside the armored tank, I could hear their screams. It gave me a pang of regret. I quickly shook it off my mind and continued to fire. As the night dragged on, we passed through every street of the city. We finally entered the outskirts of the town. I was more than ready to take a nap. I checked my watch. It was 3 hours till sunrise. I could still get some sleep. I told sarge that I would be sleeping and I crawled to the far corner of the tank and fell asleep.

Chapter 2 0700 hours
We are on our way into the heat of the battle. I can see the sun rising in the east. We are headed to the biggest fire fight in history. We are going to be remembered like the Spartans. According to Intel, there are about 3000 insurgents and only about 122 American soldiers left. Counting our squad, there would be 126 American soldiers in the fight. But there are reinforcements to the north who will be coming towards us and we will meet in the city square. Then we will continue together to sanitize the city of the insurgent infection. This may be my last entry in this journal. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know if I will survive this battle. I think that my luck has finally run out. We have about 30 miles to go now. I hope we get there soon before anyone finds us walking in the desert in full camouflage and with weapons.
The trip across the desert was totally uneventful. I spent the time counting all of the little shrubs growing in random places. I counted somewhere into the thousands and then I lost count. When we got to the city, I saw destroyed buildings, and a lot of burning vehicles. We saw nothing but desolation. We continued walking through the city of barrenness. When we found our rendezvous area, we made camp and built up a defense in an abandoned shop on a corner of the street. We barricaded the front door and waited. I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know about the other people, but I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t feel comfortable about this place. It was just too quiet for a place where insurgents would be crawling all over the place. I found safety in my dreams. I fell into a deep sleep where I found myself sitting back at home. I saw my old house and a lot of people. I remembered the time. It was July 4th. There was a party going on inside. I walked inside and everyone was oblivious to me. Then I saw myself. I was playing with my childhood friends. The little me was playing with a sparkler while the other kids ran around in circles around playing tag. Before I could see anything else, the scene changed. I was now walking down the street. It was very dark outside. Now I was panicking. I saw myself open the front door and scream. I woke up in cold sweat. The sergeant was shaking me trying to wake me up. I looked around relieved to find myself back inside the abandoned house. The same dream had haunted me ever since I was 16. The point man shouted as he fell backwards. I looked and saw blood spray all over the walls. We ran up to him and dragged him away from the window. He was hit by a bullet in the neck and died slowly. It was a horrible death. As the sarge held him and tried to comfort him, point man shook violently until he finally died. I saw the attacker and picked up point manÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s M-16. I brought it up and put the attacker in my sights. I put so many bullets into him that the street was covered in blood in that little area. I saw another person start running across the street. But in his arms, he cradled an RPG-7. I kept shooting at where he was but none of the 5.56 millimeter rounds could pierce the half inch iron wall that he was behind. I discarded the empty clip and by the time that the empty fell from the second story window, I was already shooting again. This time, I put all of the rounds into one small area and after a good 10 shots, it punctured through and I saw a man fall out behind the wall. The sarge had come up to me and shook his head. I looked at what was Point man and I sighed.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“He was a good man.Ã¢â‚¬Â
I could tell that the sarge didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know how to eulogize someone.
We took his body and covered it with a blanket we found in the store. We then took him and put him in a room in the back. We would come back for his body later to bury it.

Military operation 2300
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Man these night operations suckÃ¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Can it! We are supposed to be quiet.Ã¢â‚¬Â
I crawled silently in the mud. I could smell the cold wet dirt. We had run into some insurgents hiding in the swamps and we were now laying low and hoping to be forgotten.
I had to make sure the HK 416 wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t in the mud. They said that it was would never jam but I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t trust it.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Sir, I think I see something up ahead.Ã¢â‚¬Â
I could barely see a thing because I had turned of my NVGÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s to save the battery. But when I overheard the point man talking with the captain, I immediately switched them on.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Travis, get up there and check it out.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Oh and by the way, my name is Travis. I knew why the captain called me up there. I was the one in the squad with the best eyes. I had 40/20 vision I could see better in the dark than anyone. I started moving up and saw the sight that all soldiers never wanted to see. I saw a gun barrel right in my face. My heart stopped for a minute until I realized that the gun was laid down on the ground. I quickly looked around and saw a small camp where several people were sleeping. Judging by their clothes and weapons, I guessed that they were insurgents. I hurried back to the squad. I told them about what I saw and the captain got up and crouched instead of lying down. He was obviously thinking.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Travis you take the left side with Brad and we will flank them from the right. When you open fire, we will open fire.Ã¢â‚¬Â
We obeyed and left for our positions.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“hey look, thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a guys moving in the camp.Ã¢â‚¬Â
I unholstered my HK 416 and put the man in between the sights, I squeezed the trigger and a trio of bullets came pouring out of the gun. The man dropped dead halfway in his stride. The rest of the insurgents woke up and scrambled for their weapons and equipment when a hail of bullets mowed them all down.
I saw sarge and the point man walk into the camp and I signaled for brad to come with me to the camp. We started searching the remnants of the bullet riddled camp. The tents were all riddled with holes and looked like Swiss cheese in the moonlight. I started walking towards the fire that was built in the middle of the camp.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Travis, look out!!!Ã¢â‚¬Â
I turned around to see an insurgent with a knife in his hands about to jump on me. I grabbed for his knife hand and smiled in satisfaction when I found his elbow. I brought it around behind his back and broke it. I thought fast because he was now reaching for a weapon on the ground. I reached for my berretta in its holster but it was too late. The insurgent had picked up a fallen AK-47 and was holding it up with one arm while the other dangled lifelessly. He pulled the trigger and I closed my eyes. I heard a loud explosion, louder than a gunshot and many smaller explosions after the big one. I felt blood spray on my face. I opened my eyes and I saw a mangled body with blood everywhere. I could see bone protruding from an arm and the ribs and lungs were exposed. The heart was still beating and its legs were still twitching. I could see with every single heartbeat, the blood drained from the body and the twitching eventually stopped. I could smell the coppery tang of blood and organs. I saw the AK-47 and thought how lucky I was. Usually none of the armor the marines wore could have withstood a 7.62 millimeter round from the AK-47. I was fortunate because the gun had jammed and exploded and all of the bullets in the magazine had gone off in succession after the jammed round had exploded. I wiped the blood off my face with my sleeve.
We left the camp. I felt strangely fine. I think it was all of the years I had been in service. I left home when my family was killed by a robber. I had been out partying with my friends. I came home to find my mom, dad, little brother, and sister all dead in the living room. Ever since then I had been running away. I joined the army at the age of 17. I wanted to do anything I could to protect my country. Now, I was 25. I have grown used to the grotesque things that a marine will see in the field. It had toughened me and made me strong.
