The northern gulf coast of Texas has been devastated in the nuclear attacks, along with most of the population of the metropolitan areas of Houston and Galveston (as well as the urban centers of Dallas-Fort Worth, San Antonio and El Paso further inland). Thomas J. Kingsly, owner of a marina in Galveston, who also smuggled drugs - mostly marijuana and cocaine - up and down the Intracoastal Waterway in small craft and excursion boats, has escaped the nuking of Galveston-Houston and comes to live with his brother “Texas Bill” Kingsley on their father’s horse-raising ranch in Jackson County at the head of Lavaca Bay.

The final German Army unit in southwestern Poland, the 28th Panzergrenadier Division, crosses the Neisse River into Gorlitz, Germany. The unit distinguished itself in the long months since it fought in Ukraine, responsible for the destruction of four Pact divisions during the retreat.

The 76th Guards Air Assault Division is called back to the Leningrad area to perform local security duties.

Unofficially,

The first convoy of excess ships in the North Sea departs the region off Bremerhaven. Consisting of 26 ships, it moves out at 8 knots (to conserve fuel), escorted by the Danish corvette Beskytteren. Four of the ships are under tow, already stripped of excess fuel and stores and somewhat readied for long-term storage.

Pro-NATO guerrillas in northern Iran note the passage of the 54th (my 108th) Motor-Rifle Division from Afghanistan into Iranian territory. The Green Berets of the 5th Special Forces Group accompanying the partisans call the movement in to SOCCENT headquarters.

I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for 12 hours. When it was all over, I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like... victory. Someday this war's gonna end...
