A Word from the Marshal of the Army
Thank you for joining the men and women of the Royal Manticoran Army – Frontline, Ready Reserve, and Home Guard – altogether the Star Kingdom’s finest fighting machine. You are the mechanized “muscle” for sustained, heavy combat, you are the ones that secure and maintain control of planetary surfaces, as well as maintain the peace against uprisings or unrest when called to do so by the Government. Be proud.
I wish I could give you the secret of success, but I don’t have it. All I can say is that your success in the Royal Manticoran Army is a direct reflection of your effort. Work each day to improve yourself. Make a commitment to make your unit better by being a productive, proactive member of that unit. Try to learn something new each day because the RMA is a fast moving organization and you must never stop learning. Treat your fellow soldiers as if they were part of your family. They are. In all things, do your best; what you make of yourself is your responsibility. And one last thing – be proud of being a soldier.
You are defending the Kingdom and Crown, our people, and our way of life. There is no more honorable profession. You can be proud to say, “I am a soldier.”
Welcome to your service to the Kingdom, and Her Majesty – the Queen
In Honor to the Queen!
Your Most Humber & Obedient Service, I remain
Lord Sir Peter Gordon, KSK, CGM
Marshal of the Army
The Honorable Baron of Cumberland Moor
