Mrs. Toah, this is Sergeant Rakir, Dondass Rakir, of the 21st Mobile Infantry Battalion. I can't see or hear you, even though this is vidphone. Golgotha is fourteen hundred light years from Earth, located in the [SECURITY INTERRUPTION] sector, and what you're seeing is a recording that will take sixteen hours to get to you.
Mrs. Toah, the Mobile Infantry regrets to inform you (nice phrase means nothing) that your son, Shtad was (butchered) killed in action (it hurts mama) on Golgotha. The Imperial shock troops from out of [SECURITY INTERRUPTION] hit us from behind. We held [SECURITY INTERRUPTION] for three days without resupply. The goddamn [SECURITY INTERRUPTION] but we had to wait for a lifter to get us out of there.
I want you to know (no i don't shut up!) that Shtad didn't suffer. He was hit by a displacer round while covering (my) our retreat (he was my man my boy shut up!). He died (screaming for you) instantly. There were no final words (mama! where are my legs? mama help me, godhelpme MAMAITHURTSSOMUCH!) but he told me at chow the evening before that he was thinking of you. (why wasn't it me? should havebeen should have beenmeshould havebeenme)
We of the Federation Armed Forces (don't run we never run i was so scared should have beenme) would like to extend our deepest sympathy for your sacrifice (her son my son my boys i left them i ran my boys) to our planet in her hour of greatest need. (left them me should havebeen me) I would like to remind you that our war continues. I promise that Shtad (screamed blood while i ran) did not lay down his life (for anything) in vain.
Unfortunately, [SECURITY INTERRUPTION] was dusted from orbit and his remains are (glowing) not recoverable. We are sorry for your (my) loss, Mrs. Toah. (my boys)
