Small Team Paper
I am on a team called Home Station Field Reset (HSFR). The group I work with is the Electronic and Armormant portion of the team. We have eight members in our group total.

They said okay at first but then told us that they didn’t have the money to hire and train new people. So we were still going to have to do the mission with few personnel but still get it done in 365 days just like always. So...
