There has been an ongoing military conflict in Cambodia for a while now, due to a political crisis. A new president was recently elected, but there was a remarkable amount of opposition. The situation escalated quickly and resulted in an armed conflict between the government forces and a private army of the opposing party, who calls themselves the Cambodian Free Army (CFA) or in some cases the Cambodian-Vietnamese Free Army (CVFA) due to the growing Vietnamese support. The current president gained his influence due to support from his allies, including USA. The elected government now claims that there was a lot of political pressure from USA and that USA's government is responsible for the ongoing conflicts. Not to break important relations, USA was forced to provide military support. An American force, callsign Leatherback, has since been fighting the CVFA deep in the jungles of Prei Khmaoch Luong.
Leatherback Red cleared the area inland, but at a heavy price. At the end of the day, the operation was successful, and allowed Leatherback Blue to rejoin Leatherback Red and bring supplies.
Now that Leatherback Blue has come to our aid, the push towards the eastern side of the river shall begin. The eastern side is heavily defended with a lot of strongholds. That, however, is a problem for tomorrow. Leatherback Red's first priority is to make their way back to the river with the supplies that Leatherback Blue brought, while also clearing the road, allowing for Leatherback Blue to follow later in the day.
