“Command, this is Sgt. Richards, requesting immediate evac, over.”
“Negative. We’re indicating hostiles all over the place, we cannot risk another bird, over.”
"Bullshit! We’ve lost four guys already. Me and Lcpl. Bennet are the only ones left. Our fifty’s running short on ammo and our Warthog’s FUBAR’d. We need dust-off immediately, over.
“Roger. Pick them off as long as you can. We’re risking one of our last operational birds in the area. Stay put. ETA: 7 minutes, over.”
“Roger that. OUT”
“Command to Sgt. Richards, that is a negative on your evac. Our bird was shot down. We have precious cargo on that Pelican, you need to secure it. It is VITAL that you reach it before the Covenant do. Crash site is north, just 150 meters of your position. A convoy is headed there now. You must secure the cargo and all remaining personnel still alive and rendezvous with the convoy at the site. That’s your way out, over.”
“SHIT! Roger that. God be with us. OUT.”
