The Admiral had been walking around the Alamo for the past three hours. He was observing the various action of the night watches. Following him was
Sargent Jerries, closely.
The Seal Team he brought with him had spread and were aiding in various endeavors. Defenses were being shored up, homemade artillery being jury
rigged, discipline being administered, news crews doing interviews, during which the admiral noticed some slight difference that caught his
"Sargent, all these men are going the same direction. I see nothing but men preparing for grim work. yet I also see high moral. What do You see as
the reason ."
"Permission to speak freely Admiral."
"I have a feeling sargent you will anyway,"
Smiling a toothless smile, "Admiral its respect. I noticed you flinched at first. All these men are not clean shaven and poster boys of the
"That is without saying."
"You werent at Waco admiral. It was a slaughter at first. We were losing and badly. Then well... I do not know how to put it. The Lt. was a man
possessed. He ordered a direct assault with everything we had left into the enemy's command."
"He led it him self?"
"He ran out of bullets about half way. We followed because, well. It wouldnt look good for a navy officer to die while the army and the marines just
Laughing, "You know dont you."
"Ive know since before we retook our town from the cartel's men. He acted like someone the men would follow se we did."
Shaking his head, "You do know its official right."
"Like he said, american love a winner."
"So how did you pass you PFT, if you dont mine me asking?"
"Easy I was in charge of it. I worked those wannabies into shape. I have to ask something."
"Sargent You and your men have earned it ask."
"what did yall do to him? Aint no way a noncombat trained sailor can do the things he did in waco. Hell half the men in nam couldnt do it and they
"What exactly did he do?"
"He was a killing machine. Pure killing machine. When he ran out of bullets he was killing with his bayonet and when it broke he was swing for the
fence with the empty ak. He reacquired weapons and kept going right through the enemy. When we reached the command, he took five of us and we
slaughtered every single person there."
"Sargent I would love to answer your question and I will." after pausing, "Lets just say you picked the thoroughbred. Officially he was never
trained in combat."
A scream broke through the night. Men were rushing to the CO's tent the admiral ordered them to stand down and return to their duties. The sarge
nodded at them..The Seals had only let the doctor through, As the Admiral approached the LT.'s tent.
They both heard the voices from the tent, and the doctor walked out.
"Well doc how is your patient?"
"Rude, mean, and generally suffers from bad manners. he might live if I dont off him first."
The two gaurds, the Admiral, and the Sarge laughed.
"He fit for duty doc? I have to rotate to sack time here soon.." The Sargent looked the doc in the eye and nodded, "I need to get my men in the
sack now if possible."
From the Tent," Quit bellyaching and do it jerries. I can assume command. Your relieved, hit the sack." He walked out in fatigues with the black
As jerries turned and shouted, "Sack rotation NOW."
It woke up the Admiral who winced.
"Morning Admiral, Care to join me for breakfast. We eat now or we dont."
"Actually we need to discuss a few things Lt. I would like to see your command center. Do you mind a walk and talk." He turned to the two seal,
"Cheif go grab me and the Lt. breakfast sandwiches and two coffees."
All the seal chief did was "Aye, Admiral." The other one fell in line as they walked.He weapon was pointed to the ground but still ready.
Four Hour Later
an unmarked black helicopter
"Well chief speak. We have served together long enough That i know when something is on your mind."
"Admiral at first I thought you and command were insane and had lost all your damn sense. He is by all accounts mentally unstable."
"Go on," with a stern look.
"Sir what did we do to him. I looked at his file. Nothing indicates the ability to command at the level he is commanding at. Then I had my men look
around as you asked. Sir, I can tell you this. I actually feel sorry for the Cartel soldiers."
"You really want to know chief?"
The comment drew a scowl from the Seal Captain.
"Admirals privilege Captain."
"Aye Admiral." He looked at the Chief, "Your not going to like the answer chief." The captain looked out over the ground they flew over."
"Great now you have my undying attention. What did we do to that sailor?"
"When I was a much younger officer, the DOD had noticed a lack of ability in most of the commands. LT. McNiac was what captain, 14 when this was
"15, yes still so young." He looked the chief straight in the eye, "Have you heard of the MK ultra programs."
"Your kidding me." The chief noticed the Admiral was looking over the ground.
"The difference was that in this program we changed the inputs slightly."
With a very unhappy look on his face,"Sir fifteen."
The captain took over, "We were towards the end of the cold war and some members realized that with us winning the whole field was unstable as it
was. We needed great commanders and leaders on the battlefield. Those able to lead other mk ultra troops on the battlefield. The program would only
work if we had leaders."
The Admiral looked the chief straight in the face and took over the conversation. "The program was a complete failure. Most of the kids ended up in
an institution. The rest washed out and where returned to their private lives."
Taking all this in the chief turned to the window and say an eagle as they passed it.
"Chief, his file was buried so deep only those who worked on the project knew who they where. All this is today is a result of the programs
Looking both men in the eye, "Its kinda #y of you. I read the rest of his file. Do you know what would have happened if he had snapped during
bootcamp. You got lucky as hell he chose a noncombat related specialty."
"I know, but the fruits of our efforts may have been enough to save this country. Chief he was out of the military before It even raised a flag."
The Admiral couldnt meet the look of the chief, "Hes in good hands
"Wait a minute. " The chief was processing something, "Let me guess the good old Doc..."
"One of the doctors in the program. He is giving sugar pills mixed once and while. He lets him think hes letting him skip doses and not reporting
"So he is not bipolar?"
The Admiral nodded yes, "A side effect of the program. The manic high enables heightened command for sustain periods. He washed out originally
because he was the only ones whose personality seemed to weave and take over the programming. the control measures were not working at all."
"You want my verdict Admiral." The Admiral and the Captain both nodded," Pray to god he never gets his real file. From what I saw he has to suspect
The admiral last words on the subject were, "I pray to." He turned to the Captian, " I think chief is right, he acted like he knew. If he does lets
be thankful he is on our side."
