Here at the top of the world a handful of American soldiers and civilians met the first invasion from another planet. A man by the name of Noah once saved our world with an ark of wood. Here at the North Pole, a few men performed a similar service with an arc of electricity. The flying saucer which landed here and its pilot have been destroyed, but not without causalities among our own meager forces. I would like to bring to the microphone some of the men responsible for our success -- but as Senior Air force officer Captain Hendry is attending to demands over and above the call of duty -- Doctor Carrington, the leader of the scientific expedition, is recovering from wounds received in the battle."
