Never on the firm's time, sir..Message acknowledged..All units will be informed..Yet I feel uneasy and I wonder why?.Perhaps it is the emptiness of this vessel..Put out of your mind any romantic ideas that it's a way of glory..It's a life of suffering and hardship, an uncompromising devotion to your oath and your duty..I'll have you spread-eagled on a wagon wheel..You said it, soldier, that's enough for me!...https://forum.davidicke.com/showpost...&postcount=174
