Soon after Frank meets [[SoleSurvivor Pavel Klaus]], whom he becomes fast friends with. From that point on the duo starts earning their paycheck and kicking alien ass. The story is, paraphrasing the author, what you would get if you grabbed an extra from the Halo series and gave him the spotlight in a television series as opposed to a film. It has dealt with over nine years worth of war in more than 210 chapters. It's a pretty humorous fan fiction (albeit one that has gotten darker with every passing chapter) with well-done action sequences that don't usually go over the top. Written fairly realistically (as realistically as you can get with {{ScienceFiction}}) it gives a different perspective on the Halo Universe.
