Description: Alejandro and his co soldier Jase fall ill when their food is tampered with by local rebels.

Summary: Alejandro has been assigned to a far planet to help battle out the local rebels. He and his co worker, Jase, man the logistics department. He catched news that day that a fellow soldier, whom he knew, was snipered down earlier that day. He and jase head out to get some food mid shift. As they're eating their food, Jase notices a metal shred in his sausage. He pulls it out and sees that it is a military dog tag. He immediately becomes ill as does Alejandro. While in the hospital, they discover that the dog tag belonged to the first man snipered down and that what they were eating was human flesh. After 15 days, hes granted leave from the planet and vows to never return.

Excerpt: He had materiel to process. Three huge cargontainers sat in the bay, pending sort. This shipment was ammunition, spare parts, tools, generators and nuclear powerpacks for them. He had units and their transport chains on cue, with quantities needed. Those always exceeded quantity available. He broke them down by percentage, then applied the urgency codes to adjust the amounts. Once the Captain signed off, the loader operators would dispense it to be tied down and depart for the forward bases.
