Game A

An officer enters the cubical area and asks loud enough for Captain Kirby that anyone in the floor would have heard him, standing and saluting a young staff officer points the way towards Kirby's office, both men look in Kirby's direction. The officer that just walked in looks like a bulldog and headed straight toward Captain Kirby's office.





You notice that he has a brief case and a side arm and not much else decorating him except his rank. Lt. Collonel.

Re: Game A
As the unknown light bird entered his office Cpt. Smith stood and came to attention. Whatever memo he had been drafting would have to wait. He then did what his training told him to do. "Sir! Captain Smith at your service, sir!"

Re: Game A

Without uttering a word he placed his briefcase on the desk and pulled out a strange looking pen, clicked the top and your ears popped sort of like after shooting a rifle without ear plugs."Please shut the shades and relax, he then closed the door and took a seat.



You notice that he has some sort of hearing aid device or ear plug in his ear, like the kind musicians wear on stage.

Re: Game A
Kirby's eyes lingered on the audio devise for a fracton of a second before he turned toward the window. "May I offer you coffee," he asked as he worked the blinds, "or something else, sir?"

Turning from the window he moved toward his seat, curiosity written plain as a woman in a tank upon his face.

Re: Game A

The Collonenl placed the pen back in his brief case and flopped out a stack of papers on to the desk."Do you know what this is?"



What flops out before you is very recognizable, it seems to be your military file, with some choice pictures. There is quite a bit there, but it is hard to see everything, and everything they have on you.

Re: Game A
Kriby took a seat. Sometimes Americans want to be dramatic for dramatics sake and clearly this was one of them. The handcuffed case, closing of the blinds, and now the obvious question seemed over done - but he'd play along. "Well Colonel, that looks like my personnel file." he said evenly, "May I ask what this is about?"

Re: Game A

Go ahead look through it, let me know if anything is missing. And coffee black if you have it.  This is about your next assignment, as well as following up on some missing infomation. You have some impressive combat experience and seem to be quite an able commander, I know you've lost a few men, but I have seen much worse happen with lacking commanders. "



The colonel paused to wait for Kirby to look through the file.

OOC- this is your chance to highlight some battles that you were in, talk about any special assignment that you did well on, it will give me some background into your combat.  There are satelite pictures of intense combat.

insight on behalf of Kirby (special success)

He seems to either know something you don't, or is trying to pull information from you to help him fill in the gaps on missing information.  Either way he does have a motive, but trying to lead you into giving up information

Re: Game A
Kirby stood and walked to door and opened it a crack "Corporal Weathers! Coffee, Black; Tea, 2 sugars. Yesterday!" He then closed the door and returned to his seat. Kirby slid the file across the desk and gave it a detailed look. He took his time a he did.

It was all there. The night drop as Platoon leader in Falluga, and the lesser known, and unnamed, battle two months later that got him his first bronze star. The early morning river crossing out of the "green zone" in Bagdad was also there - that had been hairy, two of his men got purple hearts on that one.

Then were some things he expected: Ranger school, aviation school, and being deployed to Afganastan. The second, classified, incursion into Tora Bora was there - his second bronze star. Gis first major combat action as Company Commander was also there: Primary assult team in Operation Moshtarak. He lost 5 close friends that time, the silver star they gave him that time did nothing to take the pain of their loss away.

It was all there, all of it.

Hearing the Corporal's footsteps nearing the door Kirby stood again and quickly opened the door. "Thank you Corporal." he said, having retrieved the tray. Closing the door once more he delivered the Colonel his coffee and sat down with his own tea.

He took a sip then closed the file and slid it back to the colonel. "It's thorough thorough, er.. Very thorough sir. Does my next assignment have something to do with reviewing files?"  he asked, dubiously.
