"..Admiral. I have to morally object. Lt. Commander Coss is a war criminal," The four star looked the CNO in the eyes. "He executed, several displaced persons. He wouldnt even let them question this little tramp he was sleeping with. Then him and the Marines burned five blocks down in a gun fight with civilians. Using illegal hollow point white phosphorus rounds with tungsten shards. They shot the wounded that were laying on the ground. They didnt even take prisoners."
The CNO looked at the four star, " Jack STFU. Right now we do not even know what the price tag he extracted from the CIA. Not to mention, the President of the United States just called an hour ago. He congratulated me personally on making the wise call of reactivating Seaman Coss and promoting him. We just got our funding ahead of the Air force." seeing the look on Jack's face," Thats right we just got our funding approved for the next year and it isnt even October yet. POTUS, just undersigned All of the paperwork."
"What? I heard nothing about this.."
"It also appears that the Sec Def has requested Lt. Commander Coss's evaluation. The Sec Def is going to personally give Lt. Commander Coss a glowing review and recommend a promotion above the board. His star isnt on the rise, but he gets a pass."
Two days later
Lt. Commander Coss's House
The well dressed female looked down at the trashed Garage. Her stepping on beer cans made some of the Marines move.
"Damn drunk Dumba..," The female stopped moving when she heard a click come from a corner. It was followed by several Clicks. "Please your all trashed. I doubt you could hit the broad side of a barn."
"Mam I have enough Ammo to hit all three of you. Either tell us who you are or we add some extra ventilation to the Garage." One of the marines looked up at he from an air mattress, with a woman asleep on top of him and two side arms drawn.
The man from the Shadows stumbles forward, "Put your shooter down ladies. She aint Brass but odds is .. Odds are.. F#$% it.. She's high up.." The Sargent Major has to hold up one of the Columns.
"Thank you Sargent Major.." She shakes here head, "Lance Corporal Redson, go back to sleep with your local cuisine. Will one of you Gentlemen please tell my why it took my hackers five hours to get through the Damn security. We only got into the Garage at that.." She turned and looked back. The Door had relocked and shut itself.
"Yeap definitely Brass, Permission to go back to sleep Sargent Major.."
"Permission Granted Lance Corporal," The Sargent Major was using the walls to walk towards the lady. "Young lady, are you married by chance."
"Yes I am.. Ten years Sargent Major and lets say if not for the service you gentlemen had performed for your country.. I am high enough up to end your career."
Looking at the woman, "Yes mam, but from the view were I stand I think your worth at least a month in the Brig. And you look like you could teach this old dog a few tricks. If you ever decide to stray I .."
Blushing and changing the Subject, "Where is the Lt. Commander, Sargent Major? Your drunk and I will.."
With an excited look on his face, "Accept my offer.." Seeing the cold look on her face, "The Leader of this band of Pirates is upstairs enjoying his prize for rescuing the fair lady's sister." He snorts, "Thugarella indeed."
The Door to the house opens automatically. The Lady walks to the door and shakes her head. She stops, "My husband is a wetworks operator just so you know."
"I would die with a smile on my face." The Sargent Major smiled, "And I dont suffer for Whiskey impairment..
Thirty minutes later
"..do another miracle?" The lady looked at the Lt. Commander as he stood there in an open bathrobe. "You know it is common decency not to be nude with guest present."
"It is also common decency not to cock block me in my own D@#$ house." Coss gave a wild eyed shake of his head at the CIA Director. "Let me get this straight. You want to know if we can find the.."
"The FBI dropped the ball. We got two out of the three suitcase nukes. The third one is missing, we got roadblocks up. So they cant leave California. Your on the ground intell proved useful last time."
"So the US Government lost a weapon that could vaporize a whole city," Coss asked. He smiled when he caught the director take a deep breath.
"Honey, my face is up hear." Coss smiled, " Whats in it for us? We are on leave for another week."
