All right men...sorry to have cancled your leave, but we've got a bit of a situation here. As you know, following the success of our winter compain against the ant menace, we've begun to scale back our military presence here. I know many of you are looking forward to being shipped out soon, and it appears that's exactly what the enemy has been counting on. According to our intelligence, they've been quietly building their forces in secret for quite some time..thank god they tipped their hand early.

At around 1700 last night the ant's 07th Airborn Division was dropped behind our lines, about 3 klicks out from the stove. Once they had secured the area they were reinforced by the entire 2nd Army. It was several hours before our scouts detected them, and by then they were already heavily entrenched, with a steady supply train running. I won't lie to you, it's not going to be easy to dig them out of there. Fortunately we've made some progress. We managed to quickly deploy two devisions to the front, who kept the ants busy long enough for Spec Ops to move in behind the enemy line. They've setup what we're calling the "Triple Threat", three large minefields placed between the enemy position and their supply train. We now have the enemy right were we want them, surrounded and cutoff from their shelter and supply, although that is also exactly when he is most dangerous...and let us not forget that the Ants have us severly outnumbered...but we have superior hardware, men, and training.

Now, we've redeployed the two divisions already in the field to the enemy flank, and you're being sent in to replace them. Your transports leave at 0800, so you'd better hit the mess while you can...courage men...give them hell.
