    SUPREME HEADQUARTERS
    ALLIED EXPEDITIONARY FORCE

    Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force!

    You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you.
    In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.

    Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened. He will fight savagely.

    But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats,
    in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home
    Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men.
    The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to Victory!

    I have full confidence in your courage and devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory!

    Good luck! And let us beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.

    SIGNED: Dwight D. Eisenhower

    Bio: Matthew was born in Las Vegas, Nevada. He's the younger brother of Daniel Calico. His father, also named Daniel was a known musician, playing in a number of groups over the years. When he was very young, his mother Linda died of cancer. It was just the three of them, they were devastated. The Calico men moved to Long Island, NY. For awhile they had to live with their father's sister, their aunt Marianne. Matthew and his brother spent most of their time with their uncles, going bug squashing. Once they had the money, the men moved to Florida. Matthew spent the rest of his days there. Growing up, he was a remarkable student. Graduated each year with high honors. When Matty was 17, his father re-married a woman named Jay. In the beginning, the boys loved her company, but once she married their father, things changed. She wasn't as sweet anymore, and kept getting the boys in trouble. They never complained to their father about Jay. He was happy, and that's what they wanted him to be. So they moved out together, and into an apartment. Once Matty graduated from high school, his m ind was set on college, the problem was, he didn't have the money to get in. So he joined the army where he studied and trained at the same time. He was still quite an amazing student, but he'd also turned into a very impressive soldier. Once again he had received honors in the heavy weapons department. When Matty was just a child, he and his father were apart of the boy scouts. Matty was apart of the scouts for years. He grew into the leader. The scouts would go on countless camping trips, learning how to survive in the most devastating times. With Matty's survival skills from the boy scouts combined with his honors in weapons, he'd turned into a highly respected soldier.

    Name: Geoffrey Zahn
    Faction: American 101st Airborne Division
    Class: Sniper
    Favorite Weapon: M1903 Bolt-Action Rifle (with Scope)
    Rank: Sergeant
    Age: 29
    Height: 5'7"
    Weight: 142
    Hair: Brown
    Eyes: Blue
    Any other features: A thick scar running along his left jaw bone.
    Bio: Geoffrey was born April 19, 1916 to Vernon and Marsha in the small town of Bellingham, Minnesota. His father owned the general store in town and their family was fairly well off for the first 13 years of his life. He attended school and spent his free time playing ball with his friends. He had begun to do some work for his father's store when America entered the Great Depression. As the people of Bellingham lost much of their money, they were unable to buy many of the products at Vernon's store. As such, the family quickly went through the money they had saved and in the Summer of 1931, Vernon was forced to close the store. With virtually nothing but the clothes on their backs, the family moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota where Vernon and Geoffrey got jobs working impossibly long hours for next to nothing in a flour mill. For two years, the family struggled to get back on their feet. In 1933, his mother Marsha died from dysentry. His father was crushed by this and slowly deteriorated into drinking and depression. On June 6th, 1934, his father committed suicide. With his father gone, Geoffrey was the only member of his family left. His income at the mill was not enough to keep the apartment his family had been living in, and with no other recourse, he lied about his age and enlisted in the military in the fall of 1934. He started out in the infantry attached to Fort Snelling where he discovered a talent with a rifle and a love of the military. It was the talent with the rifle and an affinity for flying that landed him a spot in early paratroop testing. When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor in 1941, plans were accelerated to bring American Airborne forces into the fray. Soon thereafter, he was assigned to newly-created 101st Airborne Division. He has participated in several of the campaigns that it has been used in, and it looking forward to the next great undertaking, for which they have been training in Britain.

    Where is he? We have plenty of players.

    EDIT: And BTW, anyone else in the 101st can call me "Pigpen" because my characters name is Thigpen. Of course my real name is Thigpen and some people call my family Pigpen, so basically it's a normal "nickname" people use to get on my nerves. So some of you guys get to call my character Pigpen.

    Man I can't wait to do this.

    I can see it now...

    "The sound of war, when it's silent it's deafening."

    Young Army Private Jacob Thigpen thought to himself and the loud hum of the rotors spinning at thousands of revolutions per minute on the wings of the airplane he was in. Men were coughing, some felt sick from being at that altitude. Jake seemed to be zoned out, as did everyone else aboard "Martha 2". No one said a word, until the Commander broke the silence...

    "ONE MINUTE TO DROP ZONE!" The Commander yelled, it made some men jump up but for most it was just another sound of war.




    That's just a sample of my work.

    Picture: N/a
    Bio: Dead Eye was born on the 25th March 1925. He was born and raised in the slums of London, amongst a family of 6 brothers. When Dead Eye was 9 years old, in July 1934, he and his family went on holiday to Germany. His parents and brothers were staying in a hotel with an esteemed NAzi General. On the night now referred to as "Nacht der langen Messer (Night of the Long Knives)" Dead Eye was staying at one of his new friends house. Nazi troops, under the orders of the Fuhrer himself, came to the hotel, and murdered the general, and all the other occupants. When Dead-Eye found out about his families death, he went beserk. He ran away from Germany, hitch hiking his way back home to Britain. 5 years later, when war broke out he immediately signed up for the army, lying about his age. The British were so desperate for troops, they shipped him out to France. After the phoney war period, Dead Eye was pushed back to Dunkirk, where he was injured, by a German bomb. After being rescued by a friendly Portsmouth fisherman, and being sewn up by a medic, he was declared unfit for the army. For the next 3 years he resided in Portsmouth, with the fisherman who had saved his life. At 18 he was married to the friendly fishermans daughter, and when he heard of invasion plans, he asked to be put back on duty. The army gave him a medical, and found him fit and ready for duty. He now gets ready to leave for france once more.

    FYI:
    I'm taking over the GM position for the German players. The previous GM, Imperial_Hammer, has had to bow out. It's a shame, he'd have been excellent. I'll do my best to match the level of excellence we've come to expect from him.
    If any German players have any questions (uhhh, I think there are two.. including me) don't hesitate to PM and ask.

    Jango: Since we are short on players, If you want me to, I'll RP the stuff from Oberfehlshaber West (Supreme Command West) on down if necessary (i.e. Von Rundstedt & Rommel & so forth). Hitler and the rest of Oberkommando Des Heeres (High Command German Army) should probably be NPC's, otherwise, for balance we'd need Churchill & Roosevelt.
