It’s real, there’s no turning back. It was a bold play to catch the attention of the planet. Open people’s eyes to what is going on. They look human, but the security teams are definitely not people. They die just the same under gunfire and grenade.
I watched two of our own die this day. I barely knew their names. Somehow surviving a mission like this is grounds for a promotion. One day in and I already have friends saluting me as Squaddie Pedro Skinner. I will also begin my training with hand weapons as a ranger. Joining my success was today was Gris. It looks like we’ll be joining up again on future excercises.
