All right boys, I'm going to make you famous. Get yourselves into a heroic pose. Okay. That's it. Just like that. Hold still. Excellent! The Capital Post thanks you! Who knows, maybe someone will turn this photo into a statue one day. All right, you boys try not to die out there, okay? God bless you, and God bless the U.S. of A!

The American war correspondent is a reporter in the Anchorage Reclamation simulation in 2277.

Background

Recently, the premiere daily periodical of Washington, D.C., the Capitol Post, dis-patched a journalist to the front lines for a piece on the brave soldiers and their fight against Communism. Appearing inside the confines of the Field Headquarters, the Correspondent talks with troops and places them in a pose so heroic, he’s certain that one day someone might carve a memorial from the photograph.[1]
