I'm going to try and keep everyone who visits this forum updated on what's
happening out at the field. In order to do this I'm counting on those of you
who are there to post your updates to your Facebook page and I'll repost
them here as they come in. Here's what I've captured overnight.
As predicted it looks like
it's going to be another very hot and humid week. If you
are still en route, or planning to arrive later, be sure you
put down the soda and start drinking more water and be
sure to bring at least a case or two along with you.
Field Report #1
~~~~~~~~ Travis Posey
Monday T.O.G. - Battle for Caen:
This was a game of capture and change the flag (2 color PVC
pipe on a t-post). They had 5 flags 3 in the middle of Caen
spread around and 1 within 80 feet of respawn. Game on the
Commonwealth Forces hard charged the left flank while the
82nd hard charged the right flank. Results we took the city
in record time, capturing all flag stations within 5 minutes.
We repelled multiple German counter attacks and pushed
them back to their flag. Game was reset after 30 minutes.
Game 2. The Germans got their act together and advanced
more quickly occupying the whole of Caen. 82nd AB again
maneuver up the east flank and broke through their lines
and got in behind the Germans and it was quick clean up.
After another hour, everyone was tired and hot and low on
logistics (paint/air/water) and there were no more Germans
to shoot. They called the game.
82nd AB performed outstanding. Firing and maneuvering
and securing our objectives. So pumped this year and so
excited about the rest of you coming out.
Its going to be tough for the Germans this year having to
deal with us!
