It's Pvt. William Pink Rep 3 (I wanted to be a real FNG so went with Rep 3). He has a 12 month Tour of Duty and could have up to 24 Missions , but 18 more likely. I roll for his Squad Leader and fellow Squaddies. With Billy there are currently nine members.
It's 1966 and the US Investment Level is 4. The Enemy is 3. Investment Level is used to generate PEFs - Possible Enemy Forces, the Next Mission you'll have and Reinforcements, if any.
There are 8 easy to use Terrain Maps included in the rules, I'm using number 5 - Wooded Trail. You can set up a table to mirror the map or use the map to move your forces. I chose the later version and if combat occurs I'll use a Battle Board.
I decided to Walk Into the Mission instead of using a Helicopter, which are included in the rules.
The fighting went really fast, a great reason to use the Battle Board and counters. If playing on a large table, I would just keep the figures on the table, removing them when they left the fight.
This was the 1st PEF to be resolved.
