Mission Three: A Very Important Package
I was out of basic for eight years.
My sixth as an U. S. Army Ranger.
I overcome most of my fears.
I am always in constant danger.
I never had a mission like this before
We will guard a V. I. P. and his daughter.
There is nothing that we can ignore.
Guard them with our life is the order.
He is guarded by four of his men.
They handled the package with care.
Nothing was said that might offend.
The 747, swiftly, lifts off into the air.
The base was guarded with care
Our team arrived a few days before.
Everything was secured as plane got there.
We meet the package at the plane’s door.
The Prime Minister comes to greet them.
They are whisked to a top-secret location.
The next morning, we have breakfast with him.
He reveals to us our mission information.
The package meets with a tribal chief.
We secure the perimeter of the town
No incidents happen, his meeting is brief.
The chief shows the package around.
We escort the package for one more day.
It is a day of golf, rest, and some relaxation.
Our mission is over as the 747 lifts away.
This was his military sponsored vacation.
