Yes, that's me. It seems like so long ago, but I suppose it was, really.
This was taken during the Drang, wasn't it? Before the salient collapsed, I would guess. All those men. Poor Fat Freder. I wish I could have given him his wish. Thomas, Ng, and the rest as well. It shouldn't have ended like that. I can't really tell you why I'm still here. I had hoped time would bring some answers, but it seems the opposite has happened. They gave me a medal, you know. They even named an excise boat after me, after the Minute War. It's stupid. It was all such a waste.
In response to your other question: No, I really can't. Too much has happened, and I made a few promises I can still keep.
Please give my love to Helena and the baby.
