Private James Ramirez starts in a bunker and pulls out his M4A1 Grenadier w/ Holographic. As he walks through the bunker explosions shake the room and soldiers are seen overlooking electronics and wounded soldiers. If the player notices, a medic is tending to another critically injured soldier on a hospital bed, performing CPR on the injured soldier. If the player stayed long enough, the medic performing CPR can be seen looking at his watch, presumably taking note of the time of death as the soldier remained motionless. A medic is carrying a wounded soldier on his back, there is a conversation between two Rangers.
Ranger: We've got wounded!
Ranger 1: Wounded man coming through!
Ranger 2: Is he alright?
Ranger 1: Yeah, he got hit by a mortar and shot in the foot, but its not too bad.
Ranger 3: He'll be alright, but he needs treatment now.
Ranger 4: I need to rest, man. It's too much up there.
Ranger 5: We all feel the same way man. (Note, This is really hard to hear!)
As Ramirez approaches where Cpl. Dunn is resting against the wall, a barely audible transmission comes in from Overlord to Sgt. Foley:
Overlord: Ensure all weapons are Condition One and get topside to provide support. Casevac birds are taking heavy fire.
Ramirez meets up with Sgt. Foley, Cpl. Dunn and the team at the entrance. A Ranger tosses Dunn his SCAR-H Thermal Sight.
Ranger: On your feet - we're Oscar Mike.
Sgt. Foley: Roger, Two-One Actual out. Listen up! This evac site is getting hit hard and we need to buy 'em some time! Hooah?
The team moves out of the bunker through a trench.
Overlord: All callsigns, the LZ is under heavy fire. Uncover enemy positions and engage any potential targets.
As Ramirez comes out of the bunker he sees the damaged Washington Monument, American evac choppers are evacuating wounded while supported by American Apaches. Russian forces occupying various buildings including the Department of Commerce rain gunfire, RPGs, and mortar fire down on U.S. ground forces in Washington D.C. The team heads towards the Department of Commerce. A Javelin missile is seen fired from the top corner of the building and flying down towards an Abrams tank on the street.

Overlord: Uh, negative Two-One Actual, all available air units are currently tasked with multiple casevacs along the Potomac. Proceed west to the target building and provide support, out.
As they head to the Deptartment of Commerce building, Rangers all around the field get killed by explosions.
Sgt. Foley: Everyone move up, get out of the killzone! We gotta buy some time for those casevac birds! Overlord, Two-One Actual! We're screening west with no adjacent support, and friendly victors from BCT One are hauling ass past us, over!
Overlord: Roger. Brigade Combat Team One has already peeled off an LAV to provide suppression, over.
If the player waits.

As they move up to the front of the building an M2 Bradley IFV is seen firing at the upper floors, suppressing the enemy.
Sgt. Foley: All right! BCT One's LAV has them suppressed! Get ready to move on my mark! Ready! Go go go! Move up! Move up!

They clear the enemy crow's nest.
Sgt. Foley: Overlord this is Hunter Two-One Actual. We have secured the enemy's crow's nest on the southwest corner.
Overlord: Overlord copies all. The evac site at the Washington Monument reports several transports away, but they are still vulnerable. Can you provide support from your position, over?
Sgt. Foley: Roger that! We're sittin' on a stockpile of enemy munitions! We'll dig in and burn through their ammo! Out! Ramirez, get on that sniper rifle! Scan for targets to the south of the Washington Monument!
Evac Site: All callsigns on this net, this is the Washington Monument Evac Site! We're holding our own but have glassed enemies to the west and are taking fire from that direction!
Sgt. Foley: We got foot-mobiles firing Javelin rockets on the evac site! Ramirez, get on the Barrett and take them out!

Move! Ramirez! Take out those vehicles! The evac site is taking heavy fire! Enemy vehicles are closing in! Take 'em out!
Ramirez and his team grab Javelins and fire on enemy helicopters and BTRs, providing support for the evac site.
Overlord: Hunter Two-One, you've bought the evac site valuable time! Well done! Now get your ass to the roof ASAP...you are in danger of being overrun!
Sgt. Foley: Roger that, we're headed to the rooftop! Everyone, move out! Get to the roof and RV with the SEAL Team! Move! Move!
They begin to evacuate from the crow's nest. A Ranger blows down a door with a shotgun. They head up the stairs. At the second set of stairs, a Russian crashes in from the door and attacks. Ramirez kills him. The team moves around the balcony and climb up the rubble to the roof.
Sgt. Foley: We're out of time! Go!
Cpl. Dunn: Hostiles closing in!
Sgt. Foley: Move up! Go! Go!
If you don't get to the roof after a small amount of time.
Sgt. Foley: There's no time! Get to the roof! Go! Go!
They reach the rooftop where a Black Hawk is waiting. Russians are seen coming up from below.
Dagger Two-One: Hunter, this is Dagger Two-One. We are in position at the LZ on the rooftop, what's your status?

If Ramirez does not entering Black Hawk.
Sgt. Foley: We gotta move! Ramirez, get on that minigun!

Sgt. Foley: Overlord, we've linked up with the SEALs on the rooftop and are heading out. Interrogative - has the Washington Monument site been evacuated, over?
Overlord: Negative Two-One, they're still pinned down by infantry and light armor from the World War 2 Memorial. Doesn't look good from here, over!

Dagger Two-One hovers along the fourth floor of the Dept. of Justice. Ramirez sprays the minigun at RPG teams all along the floor.
Dagger Two-One: We're losing attitude control!
Sgt. Foley: Take us up! If we're going down, we're takin' those SAM sites with us!
Dagger Two-One flies over the roof of the building. Ramirez fires at the SAM battery, but the Russians have launched their missiles.

Dagger Two-One crashes. The player's vision blacks out.
Overlord: Dagger Two-One, this is Overlord, do you copy? Over. Dagger Two-One, this is Overlord, how copy? Over.
Ramirez wakes up shell-shocked in the wreckage. Outside, Sgt. Foley, Cpl. Dunn, Pvt. McCord, Pvt. Sandler, and Pvt. Wade fend off hostiles from the crash site. Ramirez looks at his hands, which have sustained major injuries. His gloves are torn and his watch is damaged and no longer functioning.
