- ―Rick Daniels in Combat in Union City
As UNSC Marines retreated into the UNSC Military Base in Union City, Rick Daniels and the remaining Marines and ODSTs organized an Hasty Defense of the UNSC Base and prepared for the Covenant Onslaught to be Unleashed on them. Within minutes, The Covenant Loyalist had Launched an Assault on the UNSC Military Base within the City on Earth, with the Marines and ODST valiantly Defending the UNSC Base.
When Hornets arrived to assist them, Daniels ordered the Hornets to escape while they can. Reluctantly, the Hornet Pilots obeyed the order and left the City. As the fighting progressed, Rick Daniels manned the Machine Gun Turret on an M12 Warthog and ordered Jones to drive. As the M12 Warthog drove through the Area, Sgt. Daniels took down Banshees, destroyed Wraiths, and killed dozens of Covenant Ground Troops. But, the M12 LRV Warthog was disabled and Daniels and Jones were forced to retreat. During the Battle, UNSC Military Forces were Losing Men and Ammunition and were Close to being overunned by the Loyalists. Then, the Covenant Elite Loyalist Commander joins the Battle and direct his Loyalist Troops. As the Battle Progressed on, Daniels was Wounded by an Banshee that Bombarded the UNSC Base within Union City. Then, Covenant Loyalist Elites charged at the UNSC Base and Managed to make it inside the Base. The UNSC Marines were being Slaughterd by the Loyalist Elites within the UNSC Military Base and stood no chance against the Loyalist Elites that were inside the UNSC Military Base within Union City. Then, Rick Daniels, UNSC Marine, Killed 4 Covenant Loyalist Elites in the Base, via MA5C ICWS Assault Rifle. Among the Dead Elites was the Loyalist Elite Commander.
Then, within minutes, Covenant CCS-Class Cruiser had Appeared in the Sky. To Daniels and his Marines, All Hope seemed to be Lossed. However, the Covenant CCS-Class Cruiser was Deploying Banshees and were Attacking the Loyalist Forces in the City. Then, Covenant Cruiser deployed 2 Legions of Elites to Engage Loyalist Forces. The Cruiser was an Covenant Separatist Ship. Soon, Separatist Elites had Eliminated the Remaining Brutes and Loyalist Forces in the City and saved the Stunned Humans. Then, UNSC Military Reinforcements had Arrived, along with the Hornets that had Left, and relieved the Marines from thier Positions.
