His rifle clicked, he's out. Hanze reached for another magazine from his vest but they where all gone he had run out of ammo, Hanze realzing that if he didn't do something quick they would both be dead, he pulled out his pistol and started firing, one insurgent tried to tackle hanze but he threw him off and shot him two times in the throat. A mist of blood hit Hanze in the face. Hanze ripped off his dog tag, gave it to buck and pushed him off the cliff the fall while high was not fatal only making Buck roll for 20 or so yards. The fire intensified then fell silent, Hanze just sacrificed himself to save Buck.

Buck tumbled downard, but his full head and face helmet protecyed him from the fall. However, unknowingly, he had cracked a rib in the fall.

"Dammit!" Buck yelled in anger his eyes were full of tears. He had just lost two men, who sacrificed their lives for his. But Buck quickly got a hold of himself, picked up his gun, stuffed Hanze's dog tag in his pocket, and made his way over to the remaining team.

"They're gone." Buck said before the team could ask anything about the two othes. They had to forget them- for now. For now they had to focus on survival.
