To Remember- Marching Song
By: Pvt. Mayanana Fezik

During the Great Galactic War, a young Dorbel would sing a song telling why she left home and fought the war, she later died in battle. However, many years after the war her song would become the official marching song of the Rapture Federation Army, honoring the sacrifice of this young soldier and preserving her legacy.

~
Remember us,
For we fight for you and your home,
Remember the fallen,
For they too fought for your freedom,
We will gladly fight for you,
As long it keeps you safe and free.
Remember us,
For we fight for our people,
Remember the fallen,
For they died valiantly and with honor,
We will continue fighting for the Federation.
Remember us,
For we will fight till the end,
Remember the fallen,
For they fought long before you,
We will never surrender since we are united under a cause.
Remember us,
We will die as soldiers in battle,
Remember the fallen,
For they died as heroes in war
We will gladly fight and die for you
As long it keeps you safe and free.
Remember us,
For our story is just beginning,
Remember the Fallen
For their legacy will live on forever.

Seems like this song kind of sparks unity for the whole federation.

It really did after her death, her friends from battle preserve the lyrics in memory of her. Only to submit them years after the war, which later be approved by the government

It's amazing how one lone soldier's song would end up as the official marching song for the Federation.

Yeah, basically it was a time period in which the Federation was going through reforms in its institutions and surprisingly the first ones was the military

Why the military? I assume they were in good shape.

Well before the galactic war, every alien race weren’t recognized as citizens back then, segregation and racism plagued much of the Federation. But it all changed when the civil war happen, other races were allowed to join colonial “militias” but couldn’t enlist in the army. But the galactic war is were the actually grew desperate and begin to enlist other races
