So Im gonna do a little AAR here. I'm making a few rules to keep things edgy Basically, the rule is, all terror missions must be attempted at night. To avoid suspicions of the common folk. Also, no more troops can join the Extraterrestrial Combat Unit, it is all top secret of course. (this latter rule may change, depending) Basically its my first AAR ever. Feel free to comment, but please be kind lol. Anyways, here goes!
Hello, this is the log of Calvin Stafford. I am a soldier who has been initiated into an elite group called the Extraterrestrial Combat Unit. Which is pretty much exactly what it says. I kill aliens. Though I'd never seen an alien before all this started, and actually before I went through training I didn't even believe aliens existed. But now I know the truth, and this is how my story begins.
Jan 1st, 1999
I arrived at the base this morning at 4 am. Too damn early if you ask me. I met my fellow soldiers, sure to be my only friends from here on out. There's no going back to a normal life after this, hopefully we all can accept that fact and get along. Went through an initiation ceremony that was rather uneventful, turns out all the shit we've heard about throughout our childhoods, the stories that used to make us shiver and leave a light on in the hallway are true. Aliens are among us.
The base is named EuroCom. Short for European Command. It's situated in the side of a hill in the southwestern part of Germany. Pretty much the middle of nowhere, but we're not looking for any visitors anyway so I guess it's ok.
I'm headin to bed, training starts tomorrow, so it's gonna be a long day...

Some shipments arrived today. The most advanced human weaponry money can buy.
The strongest of us will carry these badass pieces of equipment into battle. Only time will tell which ones of us will be lucky enough to carry that little extra bit of encouragement as opposed to just a standard rifle. When your going up against advanced plasma weapons you need all the fire power you can get.

The last group of soldiers arrived today. 6 more, bringing our total to 14. 14 taking on an alien threat. Also arriving on the transport were 6 scientists who immediately set off to join the others in the laboratory. I guess they're working on some sort of medical breakthrough, we'll see what comes of it I guess.

Ugh! I can't sleep, they've been making additions to the base. More storage and I think a place to interrogate aliens? Considering I haven't even seen one god damn alien yet I think they're jumping the gun. Who knows. I suppose the big wigs know what they're doing. I'm just the grunt who has to deal with all the shit.

Our radars picked up a small UFO on the Russian border.
Our interceptors were able to take it down with hardly any trouble. We're preparing for battle as dawn breaks.
We landed to find the UFO completely destroyed. There was only one survivor. I feel honored to say I was the one who made first contact, by putting a bullet through his head. I've been promoted to Sergeant. I plan to serve this unit to the very best of my ability.

Started construction of a Large Radar System. Luckily not so close to the sleeping quarters so I might be able to at least get some rest... for once.
Jan 13th, 1999
A shipment of Stun Rods arrived. These close combat weapons will make it easier to capture a live alien.
Jan 18th, 1999
Our scientists finished their research on medi-kits this morning, and the construction of the Alien Containment was finished as well. So far it's been a very productive day. Now the engineers are off making medi-kits from the scientists blueprints and the scientists have holed themselves up again with some of the alien artefacts we brought back from the initial crash sight.
Jan 20th, 1999
News reports are saying that scientists in regions around Antarctica are sighting a lot of UFO's.
We've decided to do some active recon in the area to see if we can find any sources.
Feb 1st, 1999
Our recon missions turned up without anything. But, overall, it seemed a pretty uneventful month anyways. After our success with the
initial crash site I think we've managed to impress our funding countries decently enough. Hopefully, February has more in store.
More to come! Stay tuned
