Internal Memo: Address to Chief of Staff Terran Republican Armed Forces High Marshal of Ground Forces - Infantry Regiment logistics
It has come to the attention that with recent casualties and current expansion by rebel forces, we face a predicament since the first campaign of the Esamir front in Operation 'Beta Rise' ended with what our analyzers have plainly stated to the joint chiefs as a stalemate ending with the near decimation of the Esamir Shock Regiment and the Indar 1st Standard Infantry. This has left our forces either with perceived demoralization, though our political officers are currently addressing the problem thoroughly. Casualty rating across the board are acceptable for public broadcasting with a few minor alterations and readjustments included of course; but it is felt that we may need to create further regiments to meet the steep decline in front-line forces. With expected recruitment numbers set to increase with the conscription policy in place in three months time, the Esamir Shock Regiment and the Indar Standard Infantry, will therefore be merged into the Republican Shock Guard. Note, all available Bureau of Information offices are now under sanction to produce material for the Guard and seeking the allocation of resources from our reserves. All powers with post haste must ready this force for immediate action. Leadership has been address with subject of;
