Dust Off

  The thing was all they did was ask a question. This is what help they recieved, their area bombed into the earth, Nothing remained of the area but a shell of what once was a house and a home.

  I knew, I could not radio back, that I found survivors here. I said into the radio,"Confirmed!"

  "Was the target hot?"

  "Roger, that.  It was acquired and confirmed!"

"Any survivors!"

I said, "None!"  I knew I was lieing, as there were five.

My squad and I looked each other and nodded confirmation, that I had done good. 

Smokestack (or Smoke as we call him) suggested," we might as well head back. To dust off and get home to our LZ, but who do we explain these folks!" 

The End
