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 moved inland and pushed back the CVFA insurgents from their own territory. This morning was a great success for the campaign. The objective still stands; clear the road before Leatherback Blue's arrival.
The CVFA have taken note of the attacks and are increasing their activity in the region. Leatherback Blue are closing in on our position from the south-west of the AO. They are motorized and are bringing supplies to the camp at Chamkar Yeak. Leatherback Red must continue the push and secure the area between the two platoons.
