Nobody ever told us exactly what we were signing up for but they said we were getting paid 20 g's a month and hey 20 g's a month you do the fucking math that's what my granddad would call 'Buku Bucks' But before I get into that let's start at the beginning
I was sitting on a roof with the rest of my squad in the safe zone of New Orleans when I saw a OH-6 Cayuse off in the distance I figured it would just pass over us but then it started to decline in altitude pretty soon it was hovering right in front of me when some colonel came out he said to me "You Jenkins?" I said "Who's asking?" he said "A fucking colonel, private" I smirked "What do you want me for?" he replied "We're gathering up some men to man a few outposts and your name's on the list" I said smugly "Find someone else" I started to turn around when I heard the colonel say "We'll pay you 20 grand every month" I was stunned and did a 180 "What now 20 g's? I'm in" alls he said was "good get in the chopper"
I grabbed my gear said my good byes and ran to the chopper I sat down next to the colonel and said to him "So what's the job?" He smirked "You'll see" I wanted to tell him to go fuck himself and tell me but I was too damn tired and didn't wanna blow this anyway it looked like it was gonna be a long ride so I tilted my cap down and got some sleep
When I woke up the sun was just coming over the horizon and we were over the ocean I said through the headset "where the fuck are we?" the colonel woke up looked out the window and said "The ocean" I replied "Really no shit? I couldn't tell" the colonel leaned forward asked the pilot where we were he leaned back and said "We're 15 miles from Corpus Christi, Texas" I didn't say anything else just started to ponder why the hell I was going in to corpus christi why I was stuck in this tiny fucking chopper and why the hell I hadn't GOTTEN SINGLE BITE TO EAT FUCK I'M HUNGREY
I was starting to get pissed but kept mumbling to myself "20 g's, 20 g's, 20 g's" I was drifting back into sleep when the chopper landed everything was a blurr as I grabbed my shit and run out ducking under the rotor blades pretty soon I was awake again in a poorly lit room with a gun on the table that I didn't recoginze but it was big really, really big
