Greg sat on the beach, enjoying a rare moment of solitary contentment.
It had been a good day, at least by the standards of Vela La Cava. All the boys and the Corsairs had come back in one piece, Gutterman had two new confirmed kills and Lard had actually authorized the most recent supply requisition without a squawk.
The smell of Micklin’s cigar announced the mechanic’s arrival long before he actually spoke.
“You know, Pappy, some days I think we may just survive this damn thing.”
“Yeah. We just might.”
At least for tonight, he was actually happy about it.
