    Greetings rookies! Welcome to Vietnam! Here you'll be  fighting the Viet Cong or the VC. You made the right choice to protect your country from Commies! There are a lot of dangers but if you work together, you can and will survive. You're part of a task force. You'll not only be fighting the VC loke everyone else but you'll be looking for anything out the ordinary. If so, you report it to me, your Sargeant. You do not, I repeat do not investigate. Gather your gear, we're going on our first march together rookies. Oh, and do be nice to the vets that have been in some battles here. They can help you live longer. We move out at 0900. Dismissed! 
    - Sargeant Louis Folks
    (Create a character file, group up with Sargeant Folks and report anything out the ordinary. Anything out the ordinary means anything Soviet like. Any VC traps are to also be reported as to save lives.)

    "The recent unit went missing. A whole unit! Out in the jungle. We suspect the VC have kidnapped or killed them. It's your job to investigate. A Huey will drop you in but might not be able to pick you up. Good luck." - Sarge

    Miles sat on a crate in camp, cleaning his M-14. He was waiting for a letter from back home. Only two had made it to him since he was shipped off to Vietnam. At first, he hated being here, but now, he's grown to like Vietnam. Well, as a country anyways. The scenery's nice, though, having your head on a swivel all the time isn't great. Ryan whistled a tune he learned in the States, racking the bolt of his M-14 as he finished reassembling the rifle.

    "I swear, they're everywhere..." David muttered.
    He didn't like Vietnam. He'd seen armies, and heard gunshots while here. The only thing he had was his rifle, and he'd lost his troop since he got here. Half of them ran off, the other half were shot to bits.
    "Nhìn."
    David spun around. A voice. Were they in the damn trees? Only one way to find out.
    He made his way off the path, into the forestry.

    "Hey, David, take your squad with you!" The Commander called as the team rushed forward. They're the stereotypical team that you see in Vietnam movies. But they get the job done. "I've managed to recover files saying that there's a Soviet bunker not far from here." The nerdy one said. "Miles, you're coming with us." Sarge said. "Move out ladies. We're getting a Huey there as close as we can!"

    David's squad, Yankee Squad, were all Australians. And they all had a rough idea of what to expect.
    "They're in the damn trees, aren't they?"
    "How could they not be? It's either that or they're in the sky."
    "Flying Vietnamese! That'd be a sight to see!"

    "Don't jinx it, fellas," joked Ryan. He kept pace with the Aussies quite well. "Anybody seeing anything yet?" he called from the back, looking about constantly as he went.

    "Mate, it's f**king trees and more trees. Of course we haven't." One of the soldiers said.
    "It's broad daylight, Johnston." David pointed out. "You can identify green from black."
    "I've a right mind to shut you up."
    "Pull the stick from your ass and keep watch!" One of the other soldiers said.
    "Like one of the things you get at the wall of lollies," Another said.

    'This'll be interesting,' thought Miles, shifting his rifle to his side as he scanned the brush (and trees) on his left.

    There were Russian voices up ahead. Through the trees, a thick concrete building was visible. Some soldiers patrolled, relaxed and guarded around the building, inside the building and out.

    A convoy left the could leaving the gate open for a while as some Russian soldiers patrolled the Soviet bunker. There were no doubt VC in the trees.

    The group stopped, scoping the area out.
    "Look," David said. "Ruskies."
    "Bloody hell," Johnston cursed. "Can't they stay in their own f*cking lane?"
    "Apparently not," A soldier said. "Let's hope they're not working with the Vietnamese."
    A second soldier said: "That'd be scary. The trees speakin' Russian,"

    Miles watched the Russian soldiers. "We should report back; tell the Sergeant that we have Russians in the field now," suggested Ryan. 'Vietnamese in the trees and Russians in the fields. Lovely,' he thought, half joking.

    "Gantry," Davids pointed to a soldier. "Head back and tell the Sarge that Ruskies are here."
    The Soldier called Gantry nodded, rushing back to base.
    "We'll stay here and decide on attacking, going around or heading back."

    Miles stayed quiet. There were, what, 20 Russians ahead of them? "It's up to you, gents," said Ryan.

    "I say we go around them. Mark the area for surveillance." A soldier said.
    "Mate, that's dumber than kicking a snake." Johnston said. "We should go head on attack."
    "Didn't know you had suicidal tendencies, Johnston." Another soldier said. "I agree with Burnside."
    "Burnside has a point," David said. "Let someone else do the job."
