Stage Teasers

 

We're not posting stage descriptions for our Spring 2012 match. The following are a few of the stages from the Fall 2011 match. 

 

QRF Recovery Op

Story board:

Khowst Afghanistan February 2002 

An Advance Force Operations (AFO) element was in the process of receiving a company of 101st infantry division prior to operation Anaconda.  The AFO element had been in low level but constant contact with Taliban forces for the last 45 days.  When a flight of three CH 47s arrived the Taliban could not resist the opportunity to engage.  The flight of 47 took fire on final approach to the HLZ and had to set down quickly in brown out conditions resulting in a “hard landing”.  The AFO element reorganized into a QRF element and maneuvered 1.5 Kilometers towards the wreckage of the CH-47 to recover, protect and treat the wounded 101st soldiers.
