The struggle for freedom on every front.
December 30th 1967
Secretary of defense Robert McNamara and the joint chiefs of staff have decided to create a new program known as "Operation United." This program is to take individuals from each branch of service and pull them together into a unit, nicknamed "Special Forces Skeleton Crew" (SFSC).
The goal of this unit is to shorten the time it takes to create special forces units. There is much skepticism to whether this program will work. Your unit is being deployed as of today. You will be briefed shortly on the U.S.S. Intrepid that is just outside of Vietnam.
