Sergeant Akers with his Platoon of Marines fired on the charging grunts and Jackals. There Silver Eagle has been shot down.They had few supplies.They were left to die in the Covenant city. There was little chance of Survival.
"How is the look down there, Lieutenant?, said Akers."Pretty good. I've spotted no heavy weapons down their yet. Our drop point is clear also. Wait. dammit! 2 Banshees closing in. Get ready for Plama Fire. Plasma came down, destroying the engines."I'm losing her! SHIT! Get ready! The Silver Devil dove down, crashing into the hard rock."Shit!", Private 1st Class Johnson. Corporal Hackerson checked to see if the Lieutenant survived. When he opened the door, blood came flowing onto the floor. He saw the Lieutenant, only to see her bloody dead body, with one of its arms cut off. He exited the cockpit. All of them pulled out there M755 SAW guns, getting ready to fight.
"We lost Silver Eagle Quake 057, Sir." Colonel Georgeson starred at the screen. "What do we have left?", the Colonel replied. "10 more Silver Eagles, 50 Pelican mark 2's and Hawk(H) Company ready to go at your signal, sir."
"DAMN! Those Covenant assholes have destroyed most of our Silver Eagles, and Bravo Company, has been totally obliterated! I hate them bastards. They killed my parents when I was a little feller. Now I will kill them bastards with my own shit!"
"2nd squad, move to Sector 5/24. 1st squad will get to the hill at Sector 9/24. Now move out!" Both squads moved to there positions. As soon as 1st squad got up to the hill, Private Vezelington tried to radio any other squads. He was succesful."This is 1st squad of Bravo company."Is there any UNSC Personnel out in the field? Repeat, any UNSC personnel respond." "Roger that 1st squad. This is 8th squad. We here you." "Where are you?" "We are at Sector 3/20." "Then get your asses up here to Area 24!"
2nd squad members returned fire at the Covenant aliens. Corporal Hackerson used his shotgun to blast the heads of the Elites off. It was bloody hell out there. Reinforcements kept coming. Both squads were getting beaten.
8th squad had a little trouble getting to Area 24. They had been blocked multiple times, firing at the Covenant. 8th squad finally reached 1st and 2nd squads position."Hey sir! DUDE! It's been hell, man. Private 1st class Dackas with "his" squad of marines ran to the Sergeant."Hello Private!Long time no see. It's been...what.Damn. Forgot.Maybe 5 years?" "We've been looking for survivors so long. I'm happy to see you sir." "I hope you are happy now. LOOK!"
"Sir, I think we should put reinforcements in the combat zone sir. I mean like. There could be survivors out there, fighting their asses off like Operation Rocky(It was an operation during the Grenada Rebellion. A taskforce of 100 Marine Rangers landed on Grenada to capture the Commanders of the rebellion. All the Devil's Wing Dropships were destroyed, ending in a failure and only 5 Rangers survived the conflict. Later on, Operation Rocky2 was a success)."No reinforcements Lieutenant.We can't risk the lives of fellow marines. We don't know if there is survivors out there. Tommorrow, we will send in a Marine Ranger unit of 50 to look for survivors."
4 Hunters came firing their Fuel Rod Guns at the marines. Sergeant Akers used his SAW Gun to fire at the Hunter. It didn't do any damage, but held the Hunters long enough for the snipers to get set. Private Raghdadson, Private Yankerman, and Private Daving settled onto the hill and fired their Sniper Rifle rounds at the Hunters' shield, harmesly bounce off the invicible armor. One of the marines threw a grenade, making the Hunter jump. It made the oppurtunity for one of the snipers to shoot the Hunters' back. It fell to the ground hard, hard enough to make dirt fly up.
It was getting dark, and the marines had to fine shelter. 2nd squad found a place to hide. The rest of the marines went inside the cave. Sergeant Akers stepped in."Okay, I think we're the only ones left here. Okay, each squad will take 1 hour shifts. 1st squad, 2nd squad, then 8th squad.
Sergeant Akers walked around the cave with his fellow squadmates in the cold night. He was tired, probably not ready for any action. He sat down, and turned on his walkman."Holy shit. I wish I had become a doctor when I was 16." "Sir, our shift is over. Time to wake up 2nd squad."
