All,
Sorry everyone, I've had a lot of 'real life' stuff in the way lately, haven't really done any wargamey stuff for about two and a half months now. And while I'm not all the way back, I am at least partly there, and I finally made some time to type up some old batreps. So, with that, in honor of Veteran's Day/Armistice Day/Remembrance Day, may I present the final five fights of Operation Currahee.

In the overall scheme of things, ODA 212, AKA "Task Force Dusty" (which is a joke, a shortening of the military term 'dust-off,' which is the nickname given to medical evacuation helicopters and/or the act of conducting a MEDEVAC) accomplished its mission of securing Gambala and its key bridge, neutralizing enemy forces in the area, and holding its positions until relieved by Cuban follow-on forces landed by sea. The detachment doesn't have much time to relax; following their relief they have been tasked by Brigadier Habanera to move out of I Corps up to the DMZ in support of offensive operations to eject the FSNL Army from South Leon. Task Force Dusty's mission will be to conduct long range reconnaissance, surgical strikes, interdiction, and to call in precision fires on FSNL headquarters, communications centers, and troop formations in support of Task Force Hammer's mechanized and airmobile offensive operations striking north.
So, I want to get to that, but I also need to fight out some actions involving Task Force Hawk, which is Lt Espinale's E Company, 6th Para Battalion, which also parachuted into South Leon on the night of 26/27 July 1990. So stay tuned, something is coming right up. Oh, and I've got some WWII Dutch East Indies stuff to post, too.
