Storyline

Supplies from the PX continuously wind up on the streets of Saigon. Lieutenant Camilla Patterson is in charge of the investigation, aided by Taylor. Desk clerk Sweet is eager for combat and convinces Anderson to accept him into the platoon. During the next reconnaissance, the squad encounters a regiment of NVA and makes a hasty retreat. In the chaos, Zeke and Goldman are left behind; about to be overrun, they have no other option then to call in an artillery strike on their own position. Written by MrMoonhowler
