Spartan 4728 has seen his fair share of missions with the UNSC. But this, this operation takes the cake for being the absolute strangest. This is how it began.
4728 had lost his team recently, and was being transferred to another squad. 4728 was dropped off by Falcon at a building New Alexandria City to meet them. 4728 was escorted by a marine to the other Spartans. He entered the room...
Two Spartans with Sniper Rifles sat on a bench talking to each other. One was wearing sky blue and yellow ODST armor(Riker-Takua, putting these in so I know who I already wrote in.), the other in white and silver Mark VB armor(Daniel-LM). 'Two snipers... That's interesting... ' 4728 thought. Two more Spartans were across the room playing a game of cards. One wore Operator armor like my own in Gold and Red(Ramona-REC), the other in black and white Recon armor(Jarrod-MFS).
An orange and steel EOD Spartan (Kay-Beef) stood off to the side, holding a knife. Two Air Assault Spartans, one white and cyan(Syn-Eko), the other black and silver(Ichon-Eko) stood by a terminal. 'This is a lot of Spartans for one squad...' 4728 thought as he looked around. Three others were there as well, a black and green Operator(Jemoph-JMP) like myself, black purple Recon(Taylor-Gecko), crimson black Air Assault(Dan-Pyren) and a steel red EOD Spartan(Axle, Xevins).
'Guess I should introduce myself.' 4728 thought. "Hello, name's Joseph, you guys can call me Joey if you'd like." He said, waving his hand a little. "Do you guys know who's in charge?" He asked immediately after. "Apparently you," the crimson black Air Assault Spartan pointed at him. "And Jarrod, guy in the black and white Recon over there, playing cards." He said, then pointing to Jarrod. 'How can there be two leaders in one Spartan team? And with 11 Spartans. I'm really under informed... This Jarrod guy probably understands what's happening.' 4728 walked over to Jarrod, and sat down next to him. "Excuse me, but, what's going on here, mainly who's in charge. I've never been in a squad with more than one leader." 4728 said. "Actually, there's two squads. We're going to be doing a lot of operations together, so they decided to have us survivors group up together. You're team Jammer, I'm team Tranquility." Jarrod explained. "Thanks. That explains a lot." 4728 responded. "Who's on my team?"
"Axle, dark red EOD, Taylor, black Recon, and I forget the rest." Jarrod told me. "Alright." 4728 said and got up, looking across the room. "This is weird." He said under his breath and walked over to Axle, the red EOD.
I was assigned to the Covenant Super carrier Heavenly Chorus to help lead the other Sangheili soldiers aboard it into battle. I was good friends with the Shipmaster aboard, Mese Fellowee. News had reached the ship of a Heretic group. Mese had his worries for a mutiny, so he had several trustable Sangheili as his officers. Me, Rhak Leree' being one of them. There were several others. Recently, some of our own were found to be Heretics. They are currently locked up in one of our Spires on the Human world, soon to be moved to High Charity after our surprise attack.
Our current fleet was quite small. But, it made up for it with the two Super carriers we had, under the cover of our Spires. The other was Long Night of Solace. I'm being deployed in the first attacks with a Special Operations team.
On the ground at one of the Covenant Spires
Hal Mar had to be quick. It wouldn't be long before the others found out about how she knocked out the security systems. Except they wouldn't because of how she had been stationed there. She had to free the Heretics being held here, as they'd surely be executed on High Charity. She walked around a corner with her active camo on. She came to the door, guarded by two Elite Minors. She assassinated the first and killed the second with her Covenant Carbine. To make sure she was in the right place, Hal looked through the shield. There were her comerades, Lahr Risika and Vaht 'Lenatee. "I'm deactivating the shield. We need to get out, now. They won't be able to find us in the hills." Hal Maree said, and motioned for the two to follow. "Thank you, Hal Maree." Lahr and Vaht said as they headed down the stairs of the Spire. Hal Maree had planted explosives in the Hall, so most of the Elites would be scattered. "Wait for my distraction. Then run for the cave to the North. I hid your weapons there as well. I'll try and meet you there." Hal said as she went into camo again.
After a few minutes, a loud explosion was heard to the East, followed by Carbine fire. That signaled the escape. Vaht and Lahr had made it into the rocks on the hill next to the Spire, when Vaht looked back. Amidst the smoke, Hal could be seen killing as many Elites as she could with her Sentinel Beam. "Vaht, we can't help her without weapons." Lahr said, and they continued moving.
They eventually reached the cave North of the Spire. Surprisingly, Hal was there already "Boo." She said, coming out of camo.

Ordinance tutorial(only available to Spartans:
Rocket ammo(refer to as Ammo 1)
Target Locator(call in the BIG GUNS)
Sniper ammo(refer to as Ammo 2)
Ammo for short range weapons(refer to as Ammo 3)
Health Flare(That thing from Halo Wars that healed stuff, just a small version)
Call in the ordinance by contacting command, stating your situation. Ordinance drops will become harder to receive the farther the Invasion progresses. Ex.
"This is Spartan 4728, Jammer team! We have two Spartans down and our Medic is fresh out of Health packs! We need a Health Flare immediately!"
Then I'll respond saying yes or no, and with the latter a reason related to the Covenant advance.
