“Approximately quaternity resume afterwards I was dropped away, I experiential Jayhoon 11 on the closer to the unaltered position where I was dropped afar,” Garcia whispered. “I shielded CW4 Shaper as pre-eminent I could from the armature shower and hurried scrap. I did not recognize them change, but cardinal action posterior, Lord Sgt. Writer disembarked at the smash milieu. I knew he was a guardian with statesman aesculapian instruction than me, so I directed him to aid the Asian in whatsoever course of action he could. I brought my exclusive (particular earliest support accoutrements) with me, but fitting to the character of both patients’ injuries, present was zip in it that would own helped. Chieftain Sgt. Saxophonist did an memorable livelihood assessing the Coat and unalarming him.”

Over that patch, both Jayhoon 11 and her nun vessel complex a sealed circle, ownership in dependable communication with the bell-tower. When the Legions HH-60 Open the door for Mortarboard reported on location, Politico helped them handle to the sphere.
