At the height of the Vietnam War, in 1968 and 1969, Reginald Hathorn (call sign NAIL 31) flew 229 combat missions as a forward air controller for the U.S. Air Force. He inserted Special Forces teams into North Vietnam and Laos, completed missions for the CIA, and flew missions with the Lao Army. Most of the time, he flew into Laos and called in airstrikes against targets inside that country--in a war which did not officially exist, about which the world knew nothing, and which the U.S. government denied.

    By now l feel like things are just droning on. Like, pitting me to sleep. It needs some action, something that wants to make the reader read more.

    Tigerstar's Revenge: Chapter 2

    The forest was dark. Mist curled up from the ground. It was dimly lit. There was a large clearing jam packed full of cats. A large black cat lept up onto a boulder. "Cats of The Dark Forest!" He yowled. "The time has come for us to rise again." There were whispers and mutterings among the gathered cats. "Why now Lappingdarkness?" One cat asked. "What makes iit that now is the right time?" "Why Mapleshade, the answer is" He stepped aside to allow a large cat leap up onto the boulder alongside him. "him." Lappingdarkness finihed. There were several gasps. The large tom had stripes like a tigers. His eyes glinted coldly and his long claws shone in the dim light. "I am back!" He cried. Yowls of excitment arose. "Tigerstar! Tigerstar!" The gathering chanted. Tigerstar looked across the clearing slowly. "It has been a long time, but I am back from Hell. Here to lead you against the forces of the clans and Starclan." "Will we use live warriors too? Like last time?" Mapleshade asked. "Yes. That will be your jobs." He adressed the cats. "Look for the stong, brave, and vengeful. And train them." The cats vristled with anticipation. "Now go!" Tigerstar lept down from the rock and the cats disperesed. <p> Cometstar had just received his nine lives from Starclan. "Cometstar! Cometstar!" His name was chated by the starry warriors. He held his head proudly and outstretched his wings. Then, an orange tom bounded in. The chating died off. Cometstar looked at the tom warily. "I am Firestar, young leader of Celestialclan." The tom introduced himself. "And I am here to give you a warning." "A warning?" Comettr tilted his head curiously. "About what?" "Tigerstar has risen again. And he is recruiting cats among the living for his army." "Ok." Cometstar said. "And?" "And, there is a cat in your clan whom he will try to turn. Or kill." Cometstar widened his blue eyes in shock. "WHO???" He asked urgently. "Willow." Was the simple reply. "She holds great power and you must tell her of impending danger." Cometstar gulped nervously, but nodded his head. "I will. And as leader of Celestialclan, I will do everything in my power to help and protect her." <p> Blazefear of Solarclan was running in a meadow alongside his mate, Icemoon. His golden pelt shone in the sun. All of a sudden, Icemoon disapeared and Blazefear found himself in a dark, cold forest. "Hello?" He called out. "Anyone there?" A slender shecat stepped out from behind atree. "Hello young Blazefear." She rasped. "Who are you? Where am I?" "Who I am doesn't matter." She snapped. "As for where you are, let us just call it, ah, a training grounds." She paused as if she wanted to say something else. "A training ground?" "Yes. I am here to train you. So you can protect your clan better. Your mate better. Do you accept?" He hesitated. *I don't know who she is, or where I am, but I'll be able to better protect my clan.* "Yes." He finally agreed. "Then let us begin."
