There were still troops out there, in the field in Yehud, fighting the good fight, but nobody knew how many or where they were, o...

Day Three: A white moustache and a wedding The Dukesardar liked the doors open. It made bright light fill the helicopter, but the Dukesardar wore sunglasses, so the vast blue ocean seemed darker, more foreboding, but also further away, and harmless. The pilot pointed the Dukesardar's attention west...
