Every Day We Retreat

The war, it goes badly. Every day we retreat further. A week ago we stopped trying to retrieve our dead, and the word came down today to leave the wounded behind as well. This is hard to hear, that we’ve lost so much we may never recover who we are. I’m guessing this is the last directive handed down from above.

Our supplies are gone, no food, no ammunition, and no hope of gaining more. Some of our best have taken it upon themselves to leave their weapons and uniforms behind and walk away. Tomorrow, I may do the same.

For better or worse, if this is the end for us, the least I can do is try to make it back to my family. I owe them that much.
