Maybe....

Colonel Frost's Personal Log

I just came back from speaking to the Captain and he took it better than I expected. Part of me feels that this is but the calm before the storm and because we are gathering the marines in a full brigade to speak to them with the Captain attending, I wonder what, if anything he might say.

I can not believe that this happened, I am still in shock that Cadi, a troubled marine sure would go to such lengths because of her ego. The reports indicated she picked the fight, but she took it too far. As much as I would like to think that I am not hording a bunch of trained savages, hoping that I have under me well trained, loyal, controlled, respectful marines with a tempered understanding that we need each other, this incident has left me with doubts.

Am I too old? Have I gone soft?

I'll admit its not the first time I've felt this way or given thought to retiring from the service. I'm sure Acacia would like me removed from danger but what would I do then?

Once a marine, always a marine. Thats how the saying went but what would I do in my free time if I retired? Tend to a little garden? Paint? I can't believe I'm thinking about this but honestly with the fight that took place Marine Command is going to tear through my department like a storm and I'll be lucky if I walk out of it unscathed. All I can do now is wait for the Chief Counsellor to get back to me with her report about her assessment of Cadi and hope that its something positive.

Understandably Major Snyder is worried and so she should be. Marine Command doesn't take this conduct lightly and when they hear that the marine she beat is in pretty dire straights they are going to have a field day with it. I have no idea what the Captain is going to say but I doubt its going to be good once he gets to fully read the medical report.

I need to think. Need to consider my future. Am I getting too old or am I going soft because something is happening, is changing and I don't like it.

What ever it is......it needs to change.
