Coyote Assault Troopers

“Give me soldiers who can think and I will give you victory.” Cpl Maria Perez lay flat at the top of the bluff and peered down through the early morning mist at the target building. From their vantage point, Perez and her fellow Coyotes had a clear view of the former school that UNM intel revealed […]
