How awful this information is. I Have today learn of the monstrous lie that has been fed to my men, too my regiment. After i had evidence to question i have found out that although the men promised freedom though service, they would never receive it. The crippling horror of this truth is so terrible it make me feel sick. Every time i look into the sargent eyes i feel a prang of guilt as he is a fine guardsmen and is trying to do his best so he can earn his freedom. Joanna again is earning her freedom but it will never come. IT IS STILL A PRISON. How can i continue too lead this lie. Emperor why have you let this happen why are my fine men commended even though they seek retribution in your name? Today my faith has been hit and today my soul is tainted with the betrayal of good men and women.
