Victor arrives at the Fort Baxter Air Base by a Barracks OL and meets his new sergeant, Jerry Martinez. Jerry tells him the real opportunity to make money however Victor refuses to go through any trouble. Jerry then tells him to get over to Escobar International Airport and pick up a package for him. Victor, outside, is handed a pager and on a Streetfighter makes it to the airport. When meeting the dealer with the package, however, hitmen are following and attacking them. Victor starts shooting at the hitmen but the Marquis is set on fire. The dealer's hookers both die in the explosion and the dealer drowns as Victor manage to escape and swim to shore while avoiding gunfire from the hitmen. Victor goes back to his barracks inside the base and hides the drugs there.

  • Take Sgt. Martinez's bike.
  • Go to the V.I.P. terminal at the airport.
  • Swim to shore.
  • Return to Fort Baxter.

    • Also, ranks below sergeant are not required to call sergeants "Sir". Only Warrant Officers and Commissioned officers should be addressed as "Sir".
