The ex-Coalition ranger helps the others to their feet. It is better to 
die on your feet than your knees in her opinion even though she is not a 
particularly brave type. She looks out the window to see if there is any 
way to escape.

Suddenly, Alex comes up with an idea. She does not think that it it 
likely to work but a fools chance is better than no chance. She turns 
her radio to the coalition frequency and calls, "Sergeant Stryker, 
Special Forces Number 4325, under attack at coordinates 5674 by 1258 
(ooc: Coordinants on the other side of Chicago), there is some kind of 
rift open and demons are pouring out." She will then just break 
transmission. (ooc: In some cases teams will transmit in the clear in 
full emegencies in emergency condition during modern combat, likely it 
will continue)

some who do not understand mystery speak of things which they do not 
understand, but they will boast that the mystery of the truth belongs 
to them alone.
