―Aksel-113 to his squad moments before an orbital drop onto a covenant carrier[src]
NAVSPECWAR Group 5/Team 3, Candidly referred to as "Gentry Team", was a Special Warfare Group composed of SPARTAN-II personnel, and eventually SPARTAN-III Alpha, and Beta candidates. All members are currently KIA. The group name was posthumously retired in 2554.
In 2549 Gentry Team was assembled by CODENAME:CANDLEMAKER, it was comprised of eight recruits: three Alpha Company Headhunters, two Beta company washouts, two Beta-5 Security Operators, and a single Spartan-II veteran.
In 2552 Gentry was temporarily stationed on the planet Yggdrasil to investigate, and assist with a sting against insurrectionist cells attempting to operate out of the planet. A mere three days after the completion of this task the planet was attacked by the covenant. The battle lasted for a painful and surprising six months before they were fended off by reserve UNSC vessels that had been redeployed to Yggdrasil. During the events of this battle all members of Team 3 were killed in action. Confusion still arises as to why there was a covenant attack group located here while the invasion of Reach was in full swing. The current accepted theory is that it was actually an expeditionary force, re-purposed for the attack on Reach, that seemed to have splintered off from the main fleet and ended up near Yggdrasil. The true reasoning may never be known for certain.
