War Journal by BrookMDay 1.We dropped in, lost about a hundred during entry, lost another eighty to combat and securing the city. We've dug in around various intact buildings that now act as strong points.Enemy has fled but judging from vox chatter will return. IN FORCE.

I hope those tanks are here soon..
