Semper Fidelis



Are animal soldiers held in the same regard as humans? 

Then a Federation company is facing a United Forces regiment, the six teams of genetically enhanced animals are sent out to delay the enemy advance so the company can withdraw. The “Weres,” as they are nicknamed, do not hesitate in carrying out their mission. But no matter their fighting skill, how can they hope to stand up to so many of the enemy? 

This is Jonathan's first short story, written in 1975 as a 17-year-old midshipmen at the US Naval Academy.
