Freedom Road: Military Matters War Bulletin #2

"Things are going very badly for troops on the long northbound column. Vehicles are deadlined from the sand. Soldiers are frightened, they are short of sleep, and they stink. The tempo that exhilarated them three days ago is now turning to deep muscular and psychological fatigue. Many are now wondering what they have gotten into. Thoughts of dying in a state of discomfort are popping up, thoughts of being maimed for life. Tempers are flaring. The food is all starting to taste the same. The mosquitoes and sand flies are thick at night. Supply disruptions have created a tobacco shortage. Home is unreachable. People are crying silently in the dark. A goodly number of these people haven't yet reached their 20th birthday." from Stan Goff.
