Name (Type or Print)
Sergeant Squad Leader Baker Company, First Platoon, Second Squad
Rank Position Platoon/Squad
Unfortunately our time in Darkest Hour is coming to an end and so has my time in the unit. After 7 years and 4 months in the unit with more then 6 years experience as a squad leader, almost 3000 hours in the game and the closure of Darkest Hour I have decided the time has come to leave as im unable to move over to another game at this current moment.

The amount of stories that could be told of the many amount of drills/scrims I took part in are litterly in the hundreds. From flipping tanks over, building human towers to clear a building, jumping out of windows, nothing was impossible. Shenanigans like these are something I will cherish for the rest of my life.

Members of BP1S2 and old BP2S2

Thank you all for the many adventures we shared and for keeping the great bunch that you are. You already won a brilliant reputation in the history books of the unit , with reaching the finals in DH and RO2 BBots (several times) and putting fear in the hearts of any opponent cause we were unpredictable. Time and time again we surprised friend and foe of our abilities not only in drills, but also in friendship, motivation, reliability and craziness. Many hilarious moments have been shared and will be remembered. Now that you guys are going to split up I wish you all the best in the future and I surely hope we stay in touch. It has been an honor to lead you guys into battle, anytime, anywhere.


Thank you all to the guys who stayed to the very end of Darkest Hour and the ones who left earlier. The many stories wouldn't have been told without you. It was an honor to fight alongside you or as the opposition. I wish you all the luck in your future movements. With a special thanks to the members of BP2 and the old AP1. Not to forget the friendly rivalries that occured during the years. You know who you are! And last but not least the people who supported and helped me over the many years.

Many thanks to all!

The future is what you make it out to be so it could be that our paths will cross again. But for now I have to say "goodbye".

I end this message with the follwing question. "Since when does the fire burn?"

Good luck and thanks for the many adventures!
