Sergeant Lukas V. Christiansen:

With 2Lt. Kear in the compound proper, Sgt. Christiansen was clear to manure about the battlefield. First he set up in an over watch to the east of the Prison. While this was the least likely route for the enemy to take, Sgt. Christiansen did confront a 2 man infiltration team, killing one and forcing the other to withdraw. As the battle took shape, Sgt. Christiansen moved counter clockwise towards the enemy base of fire position. As he approached a compound half way to his destination, he ran head long in to the enemy leadership element. A fire fight ensued, over the course of ten to fifteen minutes, Sgt. Christiansen eliminated the enemy leadership and one of their team. This brought his total kills to four, that being 20% of the enemy force. This is Sgt. Christiansen's second Official Scrimmage. For eliminating the 4 total enemies, the enemy team's leadership and the effect that had on the defenses outcome, Sgt. Christiansen shall receive the Silver Star.

Private, First Class Coban:

As the enemy was setting up to suppress the Prison, 2Lt. Kear ordered preempting suppression.

That 40mm grenade then proceeded to continue thought that building, out the back door and land in between a 3 man enemy weapons team. This greatly diminished the enemies ability to suppress the Defense zone. During the battle's climax PFC Coban's efforts greatly assisted the maneuver of Sgt. Christiansen amongst the enemy force and eliminated one more enemy with rifle fire. For these actions PFC Coban will receive the Silver Star.

After Action Report of
CP2's deployment against the 2MRB



On November 4 and again on November 11, 2017 Soldiers of Charlie Platoon Two, 1st Battalion, 116th Regiment of the 29th Infantry Division supported by members of Charlie Platoon One met Marines of the 2nd Marine Raider Battalion(2MRB) supported by members groups of FnF in what was supposed to be a series of battles on Gorgona. Russian VDV(Heliborne) forces are trapped in and around a prison(Prigione) complex after their transports crashed upon landing. After a skirmish with local security forces, a contingent of Marines were sent to investigate the incident at the prison. The first round(29th Attack phase), 4 November, both teams deployed and several skirmishes ensued. The round ended early due to a technical issue, the 2MRB held the objective at the premature end of the round. The second round(29th Defense Phase),11 November, saw 2Lt. Kear and his platoon deploy as Russian VDV forces, to defend a prison complex.


Charlie Platoon Two(CP2) under 2Lt. Kear deployed according to plan, a perimeter was set up to cover all possible rounds of enemy advance with contingent in the prison itself. The majority of the 2nd Marine Raider Battalion(2MRB) moved from barracks to deploy most of its forces north, with only a few approaching from the south. Soon the teams drew close, unaware of each other, a fireteam of Marines slipped past PFC Danburg(29th Marksman) with in meters. Soon after PFC Danburg made first contact dropping an enemy. A series of chaotic skirmishes ensued in the wooded hills far to the north of the prison. While the hills are lightly wooded, there is significant undergrowth. In this area of limited sight distance, those that stood their ground or advanced methodically were at a disadvantage. Those that moved in short bursts, struck and fell back, were generally those that survived. While PFC Danburg accumulated three kills, but the 2MRB caused slightly more casualties on the 29th.
Not moving his forces prematurely, 2Lt. Kear took in reports of the skirmish. Around this time Sgt. Christiansen encountered two of the three 2MRB forces south east of the prison. While eliminating one and forcing the other back, 2Lt. Kear again waited for more reports to gain a clear view of the battlefield. Skirmishes north of the AO ended and the enemy swept and cleared the wooded hills. Far to the north east, PFC Quesnelle and T/4 Burg had fallen back after their squad had been annihilated. The enemy cleared the woods with in 20 meters of them, but did not finish the job. Soon the 2MRB would begin to prepare their assault.
A small compound north-northwest of the the prison with 2 single story buildings and a old stone tower(Trump Tower), were to be the 2MRBs base of fire and jump off point. The 2MRB announced their taking of this position with some sporadic but effective fire, eliminating another Defender. 2Lt. Kear ordered counter suppression and the battle started in earnest. While the enemy Headquarters team moved to another compound north-north east of the prison, Sgt. Christiansen was moving to the same position. Close contact was made. At the same time PFC Coban was laying fire on the Trump Tower compound with 40mm grenade fire. One of his rounds seemingly entered the window of one of the buildings, traveled through the building, out the open back door and landed between a enemy SMAW gunner, a Automatic Rifleman and a third enemy, killing all three. A short time later, PFC Quesnelle and T/4 Burg approached the Trump Tower compound from the rear. A ugly fight ensued. Multiple members on both sides were repeatedly wounded but continued the fight. Several of the wounded would become unconscious only to regain consciousness and rejoin the fight the best they could. Somehow T/4 Burg outlasted most, eliminating multiple enemies and looking over the carnage that was in the court yard of the compound. Sadly, T/4 Burg was picked off from Trump Tower from a Marine code name Ripberger. Even with that, the battle for Trump Tower was going in the 29th favor.
Another south approach infiltrator was eliminated by PFC Hardy during this time. While the battle for Trump Tower wound down, the 2MRB's Headquarters team in the compound north-north east of the prison were slowly eliminated by Sgt. Christensen who put on a clinic on CQB. The Marines having taken major casualties by this point had little hope of capturing the prison back form the VDV forces. With that, Ripberger advanced, alone against 2Lt. Kear and his prison team. Wounded many times, and desperately attempting multiple means of entry Ripberger's show of determination and skill were ended by PFC Baron.
PFC Carlson was fell late in the battle by the Sgt Bridges the enemy Sniper who had been quiet until then. The Sniper also eliminated T/5 Vonk who had come close to finding him. PFC Thomas ended the round as the the enemy Sniper attempted a solo assault on the prison.
At the end of the Defense round, 2Lt. Kear's Platoon had lost 9 of its 20 men, while eliminating the enemy force. Considered counter attacks and withering fire coupled with several members epic performances pushed this threw for a 29th Victory.
