– You guys got promoted to a squad leaders. You may take an oath and get your first assigns. – General spoke to us, took a whiff of smoke where he got back to his computer as we left.
“No one shall mourn my death, no one will know I am a hero, no one will say thanks, because it is my duty, it is my honor, it is my life that will be respected.
