Good evening, gentlemen, ladies.
At approximately 1300 local time we began to receive reports of unusual activity in District 10. With 90% of our satellite network off line, we have been unable to investigate them further. Action Team Easy has been deployed to provide intel on the situation.
Your A.O. is a suburb of Chicago called Sugar Grove. The current understanding is that a few hundred individuals have managed to survive there and are seeking shelter where they can. Some have attempted to use the 911 system to report unmarked vehicles in the area. To our knowledge there are no units operating there.
This is a recon mission to determine the nature of these vehicles. This is a recon mission only, people. This is not a first contact mission, and this is not a rescue op. Do not interact with civilians. Do not bring any back with you.
I know it will be hard, people, but we are still at Delta. Until we move to Omega, we cannot begin go bring anyone back to the Bastion.
I shouldn’t have to tell you this, but if you are able to confirm that these vehicles are alien in origin, that we have alien boots on the ground, then a great deal will change. We can start to bring our people to the safety of our walls.
Cpt. Imahara will be passing out your intel packs. She is CO for this op. Lt. Cornell is XO. Study up and get this done.
Good luck, and Godspeed.
