Moroccodom wins gold medal.
For the first time in 41 years, Kenya didn't win the men's 3000m steeplechase. Their streak of nine straight gold medals was snapped by Morocco's Soufiane El Bakkali, who took gold with a time of 8:09.90. El Bakkali was overcome with emotion, as his gold was not only Morocco's first-ever in that event, but Morocco's first medal at the Tokyo Games.

Soufiane El Bakkali is a senior NCO in the Moroccodom Trekkers, the elite fighting scouts that can run all day.

CoC test the CH-47 EX. Testing the extended CH-47, it has wings to provide more lift which in turn will allow the pitch modification of the rotors for greater speed and longer range.

From NC after offering escort through the Mediterranean into the Aegean Sea.
NC will not accept the CofC’s offer, this mission to Turkey is a matter of personal honor for the NCAF to rectify a wrong during the Black Sea War. Currently the mission is in the planning stages at the College of Tactics in Ottawa.
Very good. We understand your determination, desire to finish it properly. Do the right thing.
Avoid SNAFU, FUBAR situations. Good luck, God Speed.

What is your ETA in the Mediterranean Sea? May I suggest that the attack not occur where the defenders are on cliffs or high bluffs difficult to climb. Under fire is dangerous enough. How many years of amphibious training are you thinking of?

After the attack in Athens, Greece the CoC on behalf of its member nations is offering medical assistance and support as needed and requested. This is a humanitarian mission. A couple of ships have set sail from the Western Mediterranean and from Country of Tripoli.
