Transcript Nightfall came with the surprise of total darkness. Pitch black is the only way to describe the moonless woods. Flashlights showed us what we were eating — some of which should have remained unidentified. By now, MREs were old hat. After dinner, there was a re- con group ready to go out on one last night mission — a maneuver in which a "terrorist" camp on the San Jacinto River near Conroe was investigated and overtaken. At midnight, they returned, having learned that an enemy camp had planned a raid on theirs. In an act that doesn't bode well for either Khomeini or Gadhafi, the terrorist camp was destroyed and two prisoners were captured. Six more were killed. The "good guys" lost no one. In a night class back at camp, the remaining cadets learned how to land helicopters. At that point, the cadets were told they would have to die before requesting a helicopter to land in a chemically contaminated area during a war. "You wouldn't expect them to do that?" they were rhetorically asked. A resounding "No" was all that was heard. By 9 p.m., most of the people in the groups were falling asleep, but it took a warning from one of the leaders to encourage it. "Anybody wanting snakes or spiders in your tents keep making noise and light." That was enough for me. The undeniable sound of camp leaders yelling, "Motivate, Motivate" had everyone up by 5 a.m. We had 25 minutes, we were told to be in formation with gear packed. The "grunts" had the duty of cleaning the grounds and packing the officers' equipment. This time, the ride wasn't quite so bad. No one would have cared anyway. Exhausted, nearly everyone slept, getting ready for life back on campus and in the city. And, oh yes, the next "war." — Merry Jones 311
