"This is not why I trained so long with the rifle, but perhaps God was preparing for this war without my knowing it."

Astra Galinsky was a Lithuanian soldier who worked with Ghost Recon around the time of the 2008 Russian war.


Born June 4, 1982 in Tauragė, Lithuania. Father (Darius, labor exchange administrator) and mother (Lydie, doctor) met at youth sports camp under Soviet regime. Initially trained in swimming but was deemed incapable of performing at competitive international level. Took up shooting while in school under father's tutelage. Excelled early at biathlon. Relocated with parents in 1995 to Vilnius for proximity to Lithuanian Biathlon Federation. Won junior national championship 1994-1996. Represented Lithuania in event at 1998, 2002 and 2006 Winter Games. Scored bronze medal in 2002 at Salt Lake City. Joined Lithuanian National Guard (Skat) in 2003. Trained at NCO School in Kaunas. Called up to active duty in 2007. Has served with distinction with border patrol forces since her callup. May have served with the Ghosts during the 2008 Russian war. Equipped with a Dragunov SVD.

Personality and traitsEdit

Astra's primary concerns are twofold: the defense of Lithuania, and finding news of her parents, who have been missing for over six weeks. Formerly gregarious, she is now usually curt, and has little patience for the shilly-shallying of others when she sees a task that needs doing. Galinsky speaks Lithuanian as well as fluent Russian and Polish, and some English. She is also a world-class cross country skier, and in most cases prefers walking (or skiing, if weather permits) to driving. One of the few pleasures she permits herself is showing up the boys when they start bragging about their marksmanship, and she is not above the occasional bit of hustling a beer or a few litas. Galinsky is something of a national hero as a result of her Olympic exploits, and her successes mean a great to the country as a whole. Astra is well aware of this, and as a result sometimes presses too hard to live up to her reputation.

According to Scott Mitchell, she once kicked Joe Ramirez in the groin after the latter made a joke about Russian training methods.
