Indigo Platoon, 17th SOG Company

Post by High Command » Tue Mar 12, 2019 10:26 pm

When a soldier joins the Coalition States Army in Chi-Town or are among a group of levies provided by other states (10-25% of their incoming forces depending on the need), their first tour of duty is in the ruins of Old Chicago. In this period, most learn the one thing most other standing forces in the world (aside from the NGR) don't get: immediate combat experience under the care of a professional and dedicated cadre of officers and non-comms. They learn first hand the depravity of the Federation of Magic which continues to wage a near constant guerrilla war against the CS trying to reclaim their center of operations in the parking garage beneath the old Sear's Tower in downtown Chicago. They also learn of the brutality of other creatures including vampires, brodkil, demons, and worse. In short, soldiers assigned to Old Chicago come to instinctively understand what the Coalition is fighting, why, and why their methods have to be some over the top. This combined with a constant media barrage is what creates the widespread support for the policies of the government of the Coalition.

It's important to note that for most people joining the military is done for a relatively few number of simple reasons: They are scared and sometimes scarred survivors of d-bee or monster attacks, they are refugees of yet another place destroyed by the efforts of the monstrous and/or the evil, they are patriots doing their duty to protect their home against enemies foreign and domestic, or in a rare few cases, there is a benefit to be had for their own personal growth (citizenship opens up opportunities). Terrorists don't need to have bombs strapped to their chest or assault rifles to kill people. Some can do it with their bare hands or have energy blasts that come from their eyes and hands every bit as powerful. They have a national power that hates them for existing, and obviously all they can do is reciprocate the feeling. They recently destroyed one enemy only to have their old enemy ramp up their actions as well.

Into this stewpot of rage, fear, patriotism we drop a group of recently trained soldiers. All infantry. Some psychics, but few more than major psychics. Some are mutants (suffer distinctive appearance hindrances), but all are green inexperienced soldiers fresh from training. Welcome to Hell boys and girls.

When they get through their Hell tour, or maybe their third or fourth, they will be put to other commands. One such command is the 17th SOG, a Commando company that specializes in the hard missions too tough or too specialized for the regular infantry.
