A night on the perimeter

As a deep crimson sun gently sets over the land of the fertile crescent, a small front moves in. With it comes a blanket of sand and dust.....and movement beyond the perimeter. Our perimeter guards spot activity near the flightline, and Paladin tanks begin yet another intricate dance with the enemy. Illumination flares are launched into the night sky. With the night air inflated with sand and dust, the flares look like miniature orange orbs floating across a backdrop of concertina wire, radar dishes, and perimeter outposts. With continuous volleys of light, unknown shadows slink back into the darkness.......
