When I Opened My Eyes, I Was in the Middle of the Battlefield chapter 11
In accordance with operational changes according to the situation, a team from G&G Corp was also put into operation to search for and clear the insurgents.
After handing over Cinnamon, which was the target, he immediately moved with the Marines, but fortunately, the aspect and process of the urban battle were smooth.
Of course, there were residents who resisted the search and rebels who resisted the arrest, but it was thanks to the Marines’ overwhelming suppressive fire that they quickly gave up.
In addition, there were other causes in some operational areas.
The PMC agent who joined, that is Charlie Tim.
Jake, the team leader, Marcus and Jose, who boast a fantastic duo, and Kangtae, who stood at the forefront, were unrivaled in their skill and teamwork.
Although there were only 5 of them, their ability and speed to get through the operation was better than that of 50 marines.
An old Marine officer who was watching this situation from behind couldn’t hold back his admiration.
“Awesome, great. They are also from special forces. Especially in front of me… Hey, where did you say that Asian was from? delta? SEAL Team 6?”
“There are mercenaries from Delta and Seal, but I heard that the Asians in the front are their own special forces.”
The executive who asked the successor next to him and heard the answer blinked.
“A mark? So you’re saying you’re not American?”
“Yes, I said Korean.”
“korea… … .”
The executive shook his head in admiration.
“If you are a country that has been at war with North Korea and is on a truce… You will have enough practical experience, so you might be able to have that level of skills.”
Among them, what really stood out was Kangtae’s stamina.
It was a long distance where no sound of gasping breath could be heard, but it was evident just by moving or leaning against the wall.
Compared to marines and other mercenaries whose bulletproof vests go up and down a lot, Kangtae was perfectly fine.
It was as if they were reading rather than fighting.
‘Is Korea’s training that great? It’s a compulsory conscription country in a truce country, so it won’t be weak. I need to find out about the Korean military when I go back, since my motive went to the USFK… … .’
After such thoughts, the executive received a new radio from the upper management.
It was to submit a separate detailed report on the mercenaries’ battles.
The officer asked in detail.
“Can I write about whether there is a violation of international law?”
It was a natural and common question.
It was because he had written a report after each battle about whether civilians were killed, whether the engagement process was just, whether there were overreactions, and so on.
Whether it’s targeting the PMC that cooperated like now, whether it’s a foreign army or a friendly unit.
However, the answer that came back was different from what was expected.
– No, write everything from start to finish.
“You mean everything?”
-Yes, it would be better to attach the words of the soldiers who are operating together.
“Where are you writing it? Have you ever done anything wrong?
– I was just instructed. Write it all down.
“Yes, I understand.”
After that radio call, the executive observed the operation while paying more attention to the radio of the allies.
It was already at the point where the operation was ending, but no matter how you look at it, there was nothing to complain about.
On the contrary, Kangtae is so good that I just go blind.
‘I don’t know what… It’s been a while since I’ve written a compliment.’

The results of the operation in Al Jamash were uploaded to the Defense Intelligence Agency and, after intelligence classification and collection, forwarded to the Office of Foreign Relations, a division directly under the Under Secretary for Arms Control and International Security Affairs of the State Department. done.
One of the places that ostensibly works with the Department of Defense for international diplomatic work, but actually conducts international covert military operations related to US security.
Jake and Rachel at G&G Corp also belonged to this foreign cooperation bureau.
Director Robert Anderson, who had been checking all information about Al Jamash, including their direct reports, hesitated.
“… … ?”
It was around the time I was looking at all the reports and even checking the recorded video that was sent.
To be precise, Jake’s body cam footage, who belongs to the Foreign Cooperation Bureau and is the team leader of G&G Corp Charlie.
After flipping through the screen several times, Robert, who had been assigned to watch, grabbed the mouse, initialized all settings, and returned the starting point to the beginning.
It was because I felt a sense of alienation while watching the video.
‘How can you not… … ?’
A wrinkle formed between Robert’s brows.
Tak, he pressed the space bar on the keyboard and watched the image on the monitor with narrowed eyes.
It was at this point that Jake opened the front door and Kang-tae appeared.
‘Izaga Lee. You go in with a Glock and no night vision goggles. It’s not easy to secure visibility even at dawn… Well, no problem. If it is possible to secure the naked eye… … . Other than that, the stride length and line of sight are also compliant, so it’s not bad. But the problem is… … .’
Power went into Robert’s eyes as he grasped and organized various information at once.
After that, a video that I tried to pass lightly, but could not easily ignore, was appearing.
CQB (Close Quarter Battle) part inside the building.
Watching Jake open the door and Kang-tae entering and killing the enemy, it was not easy to understand.
It wasn’t because I was too good at it.
The situation didn’t make sense.
There were enemies in every direction Kangtae entered, the rooms he did not enter were empty or filled with unarmed civilians, and he even sensed an enemy raid from the third floor.
In the end, I even found a vertical passage that anyone would miss.
‘It’s like you know the whole situation, or you’ve mastered it over and over again… … .’
It was not possible to grasp everything because the body cam was shooting in different places for each key moment, but just looking at the results, it was hard to believe.
Kang-tae seemed to know everything in it.
However, Robert only had this nonsense in his heart and did not confirm or record it.
Even though I doubted it, it was because it didn’t make sense realistically.
‘Have you received any information leaks? betrayal? no… It’s still impossible.’
Even if they betrayed them, it was impossible to recognize and prepare in advance which side the rebel soldiers were on and when they would come down from the third floor, unless it was a well-organized movie or drama action.
And just looking at the results, Kang-tae’s merit was so great that it would be worthy of a medal.
This was an achievement closer to loyalty than betrayal.
“after… … .”
Robert sighed and concluded.
‘Is Lee’s senses at the level of a superhero that transcends humans… Or maybe he knew everything.’
Robert, who shook his head, even read the report sent by the Marine Regiment.
“Um… … .”
There was a word of praise for the G&G Corp mercenaries who worked together, especially the Charlie team’s Kang Tae.
Words with no flaws, close to rave reviews.
‘If the Marines can make it this far… It sounds like you did quite well in street fighting.’
Even watching the drone video Rachel sent, Robert nodded.
It was a drone video filming from 15 meters above the ground, so there were a lot of limitations, but there was still a lot of information to take.
‘You seem to have good stamina, the house search speed is very fast, and the enemy hiding in the alley was taken care of at once. I heard that physical strength and marksmanship are good… Come to think of it, is this really a great guy?’
A smirk crept across Robert’s lips.
‘Has your brain become a machine? Or is the heart steel?’
It was because Kang-tae was at the forefront throughout the entire operation.
Not for 1 or 20 minutes, but for 1 or 2 hours, I stood at the forefront, guarded the front, entered through the open door, and faced the enemy and made the first response.
It was a rare operation.
It was because, almost exclusively, the position replaced with other members was the lead.
There was a lot of stress due to constant forward vigilance and immediate first response, and in case of a mistake, there was a possibility of putting the entire team at risk, so the leader had to be constantly replaced unless there was an unavoidable reason.
However, Kangtae continued to lead the way.
He even fulfilled his responsibilities and did an excellent job.
Above all, even though there was Jake, who could give instructions as the team leader, the operation continued without a change of location.
To put it simply, it means to trust.
‘It sounds like all the compliments in the last report are true.’
Robert remembered Jake’s report the other day.
There were many compliments disguised as evaluation. In particular, there were quite a few specific details related to whether or not I liked the marksmanship and physical fitness tests I saw at the training ground.
‘In short, he’s a great guy that Jake covets. but… … .’
Robert’s thoughts reached the still body-cam footage.
‘It’s not that strange. Well, I don’t know if he’s a superhero, but the world isn’t a Marvel movie. He must know something.’
After making his decision, he immediately gave the order.
“Kang Tae-ri, collect all the information about him and report it. Deliver it to Jake and Rachel respectively.”

That evening, after writing a report on today’s work and completing equipment maintenance, I headed to the vacant lot in the compound.
It was said that they were having a barbecue party for the success of the operation and Rachel’s declaration ceremony, and even though there was some time left, the preparations were perfect.
Firewood was burning under a light that was brightly lit like broad daylight, and the grill on top of it was heating up with smoke, and an ice box and folding chairs were set up around it.
“Keuuu, you’re thorough as expected… … .”
While looking around, Jose’s voice flew in the middle of them.
“lee! Look at this! Doesn’t it look really nice?”
At the same time, Jose shook the meat.
It was a large piece of meat that had not yet been baked, and looked to be a good two pounds.
The color of the sun pink is vivid in the lighting.
“Yeah, that’s cool.”
When I answered briefly, José’s eyebrows rose to his forehead and then came down.
“What is the reaction? Aren’t you excited to see this? aren’t you vegan Do you eat meat?”
“Ah, raw meat is not my taste.”
“Ha ha ha ha ha, okay. I’ll bake it to perfection. wait.”
At the same time, the meat was placed on the grill. By the time I heard the sound of chii-iik.
The rest of the team also showed up.
Jake, Marcus, and even Rachel.
Among them, Marcus rolled up his sleeves and approached Jose.
“You seem to be better at this than training, and you like it. Like a glutton, right?”
“If you’re late, shut up and open some sausages and put them on top.”
“Are you late? what kind of bullsh*t There are still 3 minutes left for our appointment time. You came out so f*cking early, you glutton.”
“Anyway, shut up and set things up.”
“I’m still doing it… Hey, how come you’re already grilling meat before the appointed time?”
“Why are you acting like an amateur? There’s nothing good about being late, it’s a barbecue after a while.”
Jose’s words made sense.

Luke had recently died, Scott’s betrayal was soon exposed, and the arrest of Cinnamon and the operation to wipe out the rebels soon followed.
I hadn’t had the luxury of this all along.
It was time to watch the two of them bickering and then take a seat and sit down.
“Lee, can I sit here?”
Rachel came over, even showing a rare smile.
“How much do you drink? Are you drinking well?”
“Drinking is good drinking… … .”
I looked at Rachel while answering. Because of the lighting, it was still pretty. It was nice to hear that your voice was clear.
However, she wasn’t the kind of character to talk to with useless conversation like this.
Rachel was a character who didn’t miss out on anything, whether it was her wits or her skills. I didn’t come this far after going through Homeland Security and the CIA.
If he was complaining, there must have been a reason.
I thought about this, but nothing came to mind.
‘I did this once before, and it’s not because I like it… … .’
Rachel in the game was not a character that showed romance.
He was an agent who did his best in his position to fit the scenario of tracking down the main villain, Pikal, who was secretly working in a communist country.
Of course, this place was real, not in the game, and even the story was different from the game.
However, it seemed that Rachel’s personality would not change in an instant.
There must be a reason.
He asked with his eyes closed.
“Do you have anything for me?”
“If you have a question, just feel free to ask. It seems like it was similar before, so let’s go easy without having to go round and round.”
“… … .”
It was when Rachel shut her mouth for a moment.
“Then may I ask?”
When it came, Jake spoke to me while leaning his distracted weight.
“Team Leader? Ah yes. whatever… … .”
“There is something I want to ask about today’s battle.”
“Please speak comfortably.”
I was listening with a light heart, but I flinched involuntarily at the words that followed.
“Are there rebel informants or snitches helping you?”
