    We've received word from General Walker that the request you men put in has been received and a newfangled piece of equipment will soon be arriving in the field for use!
    This fancy techno-mumbo Heads Up Device will allow you to keep one eye on the location of the enemy's intelligence papers and the other on your own control points.
    This is the problem today's youth have: brainy cowards that like to know everything so they don't need to get their hands dirty with real work! Men should be winning the war in respectable ways. Like killing the enemy, or maiming the enemy, and screaming in the face of death!

    Below you can see the declassified parts of the brief we received.

    A Boojum Snark: I didn't think it was worth it to spend more time in photoshop than needed.
    StoneFrog: I don't know anymore
    A Boojum Snark: WHY WOULD I JOKE ABOUT IT

    Great, now the whole world is going to see my horrible 10 minute photoshopping :p

    edit: and you know, that image is just zpq's example, it's probably not a good idea to toss it around by itself since valve's will likely be different.

    On an unrelated note, I think everybody should start addressing me with proper military titles. Acceptable names when speaking with the commander in chief; 4-star General Foods, Major Fail, Captain Obvious, Private Parts, or Lieutenant Colonel Major Major Major (bonus points to anybody who understands the incredibly obscure reference of the last one).
