Before the Bomb, generals told their troops that they served a higher purpose, that they fought with honor. It was patriotic bullshit.
It led our best and most deserving into the slaughterhouse.
Never again. In this new world, a CO has a duty to treat each and every soldier's life under his command as sacred.
And if a soldier has to pay that final price, then there must be an accounting. In front of his brothers, his sisters, and his Elders.
Squire De Silva was a good soldier. A staunch ally who never flinched in the face of danger. She was an unwavering friend.
Her sacrifice will be remembered. This is our solemn duty to her.
