This is a story about building friendships with the people you share a journey with. Military personnel have a close knit working relationship with the people in their unit. In a way they become a family not in a blood way, but in shared experiences way. In all work environments you have people you just click with and then there are people who do not fit your personality. One thing that did strike me is that even in the future military, equipment issued to the service personnel is not given a priority. Why do some units get better equipment than another unit? I wish that the writers would have given more thought to explaining the basic training the recruits received. I do not think that any of the recruits were prepared for combat. Overall a good start to this series.
