Operation Thunderstrike was a rousing success. Two companies of airsofters duked it out over control points at Splat Action in Molalla. In the end Alpha company (MARPAT) was victorious.
Many players with Alpha company owed the success to the good organization. Platoons and squads stayed together and reacted well to the chain of command.
"I haven't seen such a well oiled machine on the battlefield in years" - MRowell, Alpha Company C.O.
At OP: Thunderstrike we got to welcome Ric Raddue (Nightshade) back to the active roster from a short hiatus.
