This is a SP and MP mission for ArmA2: Combined Operations. It is a challenging mission where your USMC Force Recon team has to retrieve a fellow Marine. Stealth is the key for the first task, but from then your anonymity will be somewhat diminished (you'll see). You will then be required to move North to the Presedente's Palace in Maruko where the Marine is being held. Once retrieved you will need to escort him back to camp. If he dies, its mission over. This is a long and quite hard mission so time needs to be taken. Enemy AI will show you no quarter due to the GL4 mod.
There are no cut scenes or voice acting, like I said, first mission designed to be simple but fun.
To our top story tonight. A USMC Officer has attempted a peace treaty between the Armadas Revolucionarias de Lingor (ARL)and the Government Army of Lingor (GAL) after the ARL's violent push North. During the advance the ARL managed to secure the entire NE section of the Island. This included the town of Maruko where the Presidents Palace is situated. The President of Lingor is currently MIA after not appearing at the talks scheduled to take place at the Palace.
A USMC spokesperson has stated that the ARL became hostile when the President failed to arrive at the talks. Assuming it was a trap the ARL seized the unarmed USMC Officer as a hostage. The ARL have since become aware of the actual situation and have decided to hold the Officer for bargaining power, as they continue they're attempt at a hostile takeover of Lingor Island. The USMC have also stated that due to the ARL's unwillingness to workwith Peacekeepers in the reigon, they are considering a USMC presence on the island itself.
Rumor also has it that the ARL are in the process of killing any Maruko locals refusing to join them in their cause. Only a hand full have managed to escape to safety in the south, the rest are said to be either in hiding, or fighting alongside the ARL. What impact this with will have on the Lingorian Presidents leadership should he return is yet to be seen.

"Weapon load out" saves for a quick return to action
The briefing is very simple (in that there is no interaction, its my first full mission, still learning)
Thus there are no objective markers. You will need to use the Way Points provided. (more realistic lol)
Sometimes after a save in SP your units will get "the shakes" (possibly GL4), its not a big deal as they
still function properly. They just look like they are loosing it a little, in that they shake their head a lot.
