balance
Come back alive with honor or dead with honor.
Or don’t come back.
Human soldiers fought in many battles
very seasoned and experienced
Genetic soldiers were inexperienced by strong.
Inferior but experienced against Superior but inexperienced

His only thoughts were fear and discipline.
Habit, routine.
