Operation Broken Trail Chapter 1

Forces Command (FORCECOM) is charged with the administration of the units of the Corp as well as overseeing all detachments and marines in the Corp. All Marine OICs report to the FORCECOM Commanding Officer via the Monthly Status Report (MSR). The MSR that reaches the COFORCECOM starts from the Detachment and Task Force level. Each Detachment or Expeditionary Force OIC sends an MSR to their Ship CO and Division or Regiment OIC.

Marines conducted joint division training. Three landfall exercises were carried out at Pinastri Headquarters. Summaries are as follows
-HALO Parachute Jump - The team jumps from a shuttle at high altitude then pull their chutes at a low altitude to avoid detection and minimize engagement time prior to boots on ground.
-Touch and go landing - A shuttle quickly lands into a hot zone and unloads its marine teams before immediately departing. Marine teams quickly secure the immediate landing area and push up
-Touch and go Overwatch - A reconnaissance marine team quickly departs from a shuttle at an Overwatch position. They then scout out hostile positions and call in air strikes from marine aerospace units.

All three exercises were conducted with minimal issues. However upon completion of live fire drills a general distress signal was sent broadcast from Pinastri flight ops. The SS New Delhi, a cargo ship which had just left orbit had sent out an emergency broadcast shortly before its transponder went dark.

As the marines were already engaging in shuttle operations they assisted in a search and rescue operation. Reaper 1 and the USS Lionheart deployed to the last know position of the SS New Delhi. After some time searching Reaper 1 located the debris of the SS New Delhi. A scan revealed no signs of life. Reaper 1 did a flyby of the ships canopy and was able to positively identify the remains of the crew. Scans also revealed the ships entire cargo manifest had been stolen. A message was sent out the HQ to have a ship tow in the SS New Delhi for further investigation.

Security and Intelligence as HQ have been notified of the our initial findings. An investigation is to follow as to how a hostile force was able to attack and pillage a trade vessel within the immediate proximity of Pinastri. In the meantime marine aerospace patrols will provide increased patrol and escort sorties for craft entering and exiting the Pinastri system.
