The Hills Are Alive.

The hills are a alive with the
Sound of gun fire
Screaming boys and radio calls,
Whirling blades
Create a dust storm,
Just another day in
Helmond Province.

Hello Alpha Charlie, this is Mike Charlie One, over
Alpha Charlie send over,
Mike Charlie request P1 medevac , soonest, over

Alpha Charlie send details over
Mike Charlie One, times four P1 casualties
Break
Times two gsw head
Break
Times one ta below left knee
Break
Times one blast injury, over,
Alpha Charlie wait.

Hello Mike Charlie One this is Alpha Charlie over
Mike Charlie One send over
Alpha Charlie medevac due your location figures one five, I say again figures one five over
Mike Charlie One roger
Alpha Charlie out.
