Very nice, on the whole. I enjoyed this story and I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the series.

Writing in the first person is harder, but more authentic. Dostoyevsky always seemed to write in the first person. The main character seems quite substantial and complex. Discomfort with the MC is kind of nice to see in a protagonist--it doesn't happen often.

I thought Major Urdang's humor was a little. . . painful, but I suppose that's character.

I noticed only one GPS error, and one other "error".

You forgot an apostrophe there. "We're".

His actual title is "The Master Chief", at least when spoken about in the third person. Listen closely in the games and you'll hear that he's referred to that way, and only when people are speaking directly to him is he just "Master Chief".

A lovely first submission. Keep up the great work!

Usually "The Chief" by most of the Marines at a distance then they just say "Chief" when you're in combat and such.

Hmm I just read it and I like where this is going. You seemed to have captured the thoughts of what other soldiers thought of the Spartans that I wanted to portray in my story.

Look forward to the next one.

you also put "the marines run to the pelicans" it would be better with "ran".
otherwise very good story.
