Colonel Andrew M. Iverson
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Goldstein,
It is with deep regret that I must inform you that your son Micheal was killed during excercises yesterday on the surface of Genesis. MILCOM does everything it's power to prevent accidents during exercises, but unfortunately the fusion reactor on one of our hover tanks suffered a catostrophic failure.
I wanted to personnally express how proud I was to serve with your son. I also wanted you to know how important he was to me. Sometimes we marines take ourselves too seriously and your son was always there with a quick joke to remind us we are human beings too. I know I can never feel the depths of your sorrow, but I too feel a great loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Andrew M. Iverson
