Deceased (K.I.A.) - Planet P
Rifleman / Radio Operator
Ambush at Whiskey Outpost
Sergeant Gillespie was a trooper in the Roughnecks during the First Bug War. When the Roughnecks were ordered to Planet P to investigate a distress call from Whiskey Outpost, Gillespie was assigned to the active platoon as radio operator.
While on their way to the Whiskey Outpost, the platoon encountered radio interference. Lieutenant Rasczak ordered Gillespie to get to a higher position in hopes to get the signal through. Gillespie obeyed the order, which proved to be his downfall as he was trying to contact Whiskey Outpost, a Hopper swooped down and impaled Gillespie with its claws. It then dropped him into an upper ground. Gillespie began to get tortured by the Hopper. Lieutenant Rasczak borrowed "Sugar" Watkins' Scoped Morita Assault Rifle, which he used to shoot Gillespie in the heart in order to save him from further pain. Lieutenant Rasczak did not regret his decision to shoot Gillespie, returns the rifle back to Watkins, replaces him to Rico as acting Sergeant and the platoon continued on their way to Whiskey Outpost.
