This is the second fight of a three-fight series for the opening round of my South Leon campaign, which is actually a thinly-veiled Vietnam campaign being used to keep my Cuba Libre story going. Task Force Fulgencio, comprising a company of Marines, a company of paratroopers, and various intelligence, special operations forces, and combat support detachments has deployed to prop up the fictional country of South Leon, which is suffering from guerrilla war begun by domestic Marxists and supported by its Communist neighbor, the Fédération Socialiste Nationale de Leon.

1st Lt Ordonez' company of Marines was dispatched to the border with FSNL, while the parachute infantry company was sent to the capital of South Leon. The Marines have been aggressively patrolling the DMZ, and the first real contact with infiltrators from FSNL occurred several days ago. Lt Peres' 1st Platoon met the enemy in an abandoned village, where the guerrillas sprung an ambush. Both sides were bloodied, but the Marines ultimately carried the day.

It is now approximately 1045 on 7 June 1990, and Lt Lupe's 2nd Platoon has been on patrol since the wee hours of the morning.


The Marines fan out and enter the village, contact is imminent. To see how the fight went, please check the blog at:

What a fight, I'm exhausted! I've got one more to write up and post, then I change gears for some modern Middle East fights. My boy and I played most of a game, and have two more to go in that operation, playing co-op with SOF against insurgents. Sorry, my wargaming butterfly-ness simply won't allow me to stay focused on any one arena for too long ;) Stay tuned.
