Read a portion of the Security Police radio traffic that night.

(Echo-37)  They're completely inside the base, they're all around this position, we're running low on ammo, one man dead and two badly injured. (0354 hours)

(Security Control)   10-20, your call sign.

(Echo-37)   Echo-37.

(Security Control)   Copy, Echo-37.

Echo-37)   That's 10-4.

Sad to say that this will be the very last transmission from Echo-37, better known as the O-51 Bunker.

Once the attack started, my friends only had twenty-four (24) minutes to live.
