Quote: “Welcome to the army. If you are very lucky you will die on the battlefield with a spear in your chest, the sound of swords ringing on shield deafening you, and the stink of smoke choking you. You will never be wealthy as a soldier and I will demand the best of you at all times. If you cannot give me that then I’ll gut you myself.”
