(A group of soldiers wearing scarlet colored bandanas are lined up in formation inside Fort Blood. The fort is a typical western military fort. Surrounded by wooden walls and rickety shacks, a few tents and several watch towers. A soldier with a bugle stands in the front with COMMANDER EDWARD SCARLET. The solider plays a short order tune on his bugle. As he does the soldiers all stand at attention at once. Their discipline is obvious. )copyright protection11PENANAu5CS349tEW

(The men all salute with their fists over their hearts. After the commands are shouted Bugle spins on his heels and joins his fellow company men in line. Commander Edward salutes his men in return then stands with his hands behind his back. He is rigid and rugged. A soldier in every regard. )copyright protection11PENANAwoNmOSgi8D

Today it is our great honor and privilege to say goodbye to three of the bravest and best that the Scarlet Brigade has to offer. Sergeant Monty Scarlet, Private Banks Scarlet and Major Butch Scarlet step forward.copyright protection11PENANAe0PFv393bA

(Two soldiers in their early thirties and one who couldn't be any older than twenty step forward. All are very physically fit. Butch has short reddish brown hair and a well trimmed mustache and facial hair. He is very handsome even with the scar that runs from his left cheek to his neck. His vest is weighed down by all the pins and medals he has on it. It is obvious that he is an incredibly decorated soldier. MONTY is much shorter in stature and far less handsome. He has longer dark hair and is very freckled. He has a steely look in his eyes. BANKS is skinny and marked with acne and his face still looks very young.)copyright protection11PENANA744Vwot2TI

Monty came to us when he was eleven years old. A child. Sergeant Monty's bastard father sold him into our service for three dollars and forty seven cents. copyright protection11PENANAsUhxPNWjQQ

He was seventeen when he earned the title of Red Blade. Before long he bested the head instructor and earned the title of First Blade. Nearly every one of you standing here have taken part in his swordsmanship and knife training classes. Many of you have a scar or two to remind you of the sparring session you had with him. He is one of the finest instructors and greatest swordsman that the Brigade has ever seen. He has served with honor and pride. He shall be considered a brother of good standing with the Scarlet Brigade for the rest of his days.copyright protection11PENANAQmkIgq98k8

Banks Scarlet came to us five years ago. A boy of mere fourteen years was turned into a man right here in these walls. He learned to shoot, hunt and fight. He learned that being a man sometimes means you make hard decisions. His singing will be missed. He has served with honor and pride. He shall be considered a brother of good standing with the Scarlet Brigade for the rest of his days.copyright protection11PENANAfhNHTEDpLk

Major Butch Scarlet was taken in orphaned and penniless at the age of ten. His only request for payment was that we find his sister a decent place to live and work. Over the years he has proved to be an outstanding officer and soldier. His valor on the battlefield has been proven time and time again. He has been awarded just about every award and medal that we have to give. Many of you here wouldn't be alive today if it wasn't for this man. I could go and tell story after story of his courage during scrapes. I could tell you about the time he and I were in a hole and outnumbered by the Kyawai five to one. I could tell you how I was sure we were going to die and I could tell you how he got us out of that shitstorm in tact, but I won't because you would demand he stay and become the new Grand Commander. And I've grown quite fond of my cushy job.copyright protection11PENANAkaVtHrwuQW

(The three soldiers remove the scarlet bandanas from their necks. The Bugle soldier steps forward to collect them. Mo and Banks hand theirs over right away. Butch hesitates for a moment and then hands his to the Bugle soldier. The Bugle soldier steps back to the front of the company.)copyright protection11PENANAh8PVOtOwFb
