Sporadic shooting every day from the orcs, some heavy, some more of an annoyance. A steady but 'small' stream of casualties daily on the NAF side. The usual, and tried and true, casualties on the orc side are 4-5 for every NAF loss, most of the orcs are not veterans and simply shoved half trained in to the lines. They suffer accordingly when they shoot as ordered or as wanted.
Red Cross was to give some aid on the spot to the orcs and wanted to come to NAF side for the same. Our daughter a few days ago said that at least in her area Red Cross is not allowed, they have the same level of trust as OSCE has, or had. She of course did not say where she is but she did say she is not in the lines of the moment so she could commo a little. Our other daughter and our son up there, we have not heard from either of them in some weeks, but no news is good news.
Our local post, when the rare letter arrives from any of them, does not call us, they simply deliver it immediately. Bless their hearts, they know from the writing who sent it so they fold the envelope in a triangle shape, send the tallest girl they have with the letter and before she knocks on the gate, she holds the triangle above the gate so my wife can see it when she knocks.This is an old way of doing things. During the last war, soldiers from the front or in service folded their field letters in a triangle. When the letters arrived to their families, the relatives knew instantly it was from the soldier because of the triangle shape and he was alive. Anything official, which was usually bad news, came in a square or rectangular envelope, hence what the girls at our Post do so my wife does not have a heart attack.
Our other two girls are so deep in succor and safe haven the world can be nuked and they will survive and prosper.
You and your wife stay safe. I see the beast has arrived in your neck of the woods.
