A Story a Day - Operation Antler Strike

Today we were supposed to use journal entries or letters or something of the like to tell our story.  I'm not sure how great of a story this makes, but I have been needing to create this series of Memos to release on my book's website, so at any rate I'm very glad I got this done.
