I've been really busy at the office lately - the biggest change in the primary responsibility of my jobin over 50 years and a lot of associated travel. Entertainingly, it has been past a lot of sites mentioned in this thread... one SAC base and about 6-10 refineries. A nice addition to the couple targets I pass on a more regular basis.

I'd like to try to keep it a daily update for the next couple weeks (once I get caught up). As far as conventional fighting I'd like to detail X Corps' counterattack out of Fairbanks, the collapse of the Allied defense in British Columbia and counterinsurgency operations in Iran as well as the re-emergence of anti-Soviet forces in Jugoslavia. Later this year there is the 1998 Pact South German offensive and its aftermath as well as the Mexican invasion of the US. (I have tried to assimilate the collective wisdom of the couple of threads here on the topic as well as the Mexican sourcebook that was done up a couple years back; spoiler - I'm not going to have the Mexicans nearly as beefy as described in that book). I'm thinking maybe in later March and April as well as the fall (and most of 1999 and the first half of 2000) a weekly update will work better.
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...
