GARRISON, July 27th. You would not believe it from the way he plays, but little Joseph Hammers, 8, is one of the survivors of the battle of Sylvia, but is also a war orphan. “Bang bang bang! I'm going to be a soldier, just like dad, and I'm gonna beat all the bad guys and get a big metal from the President!” Joseph happily exclaims as he runs about the yard of the Garrison Capitol Military Academy with the other children survivors playing soldier. His sister, however, is much less enthusiastic.
“I worry that he actually understands what happened that day,” his sister admits. “I'm worried that he's just pretending to be strong now that our father died.”
Joseph Hammers, and his elder sister, Cecily Hammers, 16, are survivors of the attack on the Military Cross Academy of Sylvia on the 24th. Their father, Sergeant Michael Hammers, was one of the instructors of the Sylvia Military Cross Academy who had organized the defense of Sylvia. He, alongside several senior cadets of the academy, gave up their lives in defending the academy-city long enough for residents and the younger cadets to flee the city. Sadly, Sergeant Hammers, along with many of the fighting recruits, were killed by the Vosskoni during the fighting, Hammers himself being struck down by a Vosskoni vanguard while trying to assist a wounded soldier.
“He and those children gave up their lives so that the rest of us could make it to safety,” fellow refugee Meredith Hans said. “While we weep for his children, we have taken it upon ourselves to raise them in his place.”
