It's approximately 0300hrs, you are riding in an ICV (Infantry Carrying Vehicle), on your way to a night raid. It wouldn't be so warm if not for the fact that you are wearing full combat gear and your squad is packed like sardines in the vehicle.
These raids have been happening so often that most of the squad is comfortable taking a power nap enroute. Just as you start to contemplate closing your eyes... A voice comes over the vehicle's intercom: "Target right. One minute!" The squad gets ready, gloves, ear plugs, lock and load... One split second hopeful thought that nobody in your squad gets shot and you dismount the vehicle. The squad makes their way to the target quietly and stacks outside the front door. With ear plugs in you can hear your breathing and heartbeat loudly.
