He gave us these cool uniforms, armor, equipment and weapons and made us run. We ran through obstacles courses, he made us march in formation, we shot at wooden targets a lot. Then they put us in trucks and we had to shoot at other dudes that were wearing similar equipment but with different coloring... we were helped by these massive metal machines called...uhhh...

Don't think you can torture it out of them. Don't lower yourself to their level. Just put a bullet in the skull go to the next one. Like an assembly line. They want their chance at glory.

"Who are First Recon? They are explorers. At least that's what they are officially. Unofficially? They are humanities first line of defense. Discovered an Ancient temple with malicious aura? First Recon is already half way through cataloging it and securing it. Hostile Alien Empire? First Recon has already acquired blueprints of their technologies and star-maps of their territory. They are the best of the best. To the outside world they are simple explorers with slightly advanced vessels. But the truth is each First Recon is a one man army.
