Formation of the Brotherhood of Steel
- Camp Venture: In the barracks.
Hailey Takano: Appalachia online, Captain.
Roger Maxson: I know most of you love America. The good old red, white, and blue.
But those of us that served at Mariposa know something. America failed.
Not because of its citizens, who lived clean lives filled with hardship in a never ending war. And certainly not because of its fighting men and women. God bless them.
No, its leaders failed us. Senators, Generals, Presidents, all those bastards. Their failure almost destroyed all mankind.
But I look around here and I see survivors. People too stubborn, too damned ornery to die.
We've fought and we've endured and finally we have a small patch of safety. But having a home isn't enough. We need something more. What we need is... purpose.
But we cannot look to the America of old for that purpose. We have to build our own.
So tonight, as we break bread together, let us forge together something new. Something strong. Something we can be proud of. Something we can build upon. We'll preserve what's best of what's come before and use it. And one day, we will reclaim what was lost.
Let us forge a Brotherhood of Steel.
