Nice one, because even in death you still serve.

Actually, could you imagine that?

For years the tombstone would be one of the more odd additions to the graveyard.

Time passes. Technologies advance. Wars happen. Families are interred.

Some 500 years down the line, a family is walking by and sees this massive battle chiseled into a tombstone. The words are too faded to read, the scene is kinda getting a little blurry, but it is obvious that the man buried below fought in the tech wars of 2476, probably a 'mech pilot based on what of the picture can still be made out.

Obviously this was a man of honor and duty.

Suddenly the grandfather stoops over, weighing himself upon the solid stone for support, the grandmother resting her hand on his shoulder, providing comfort. "Thank you for serving when we needed you most," he says, head bowed, a tear rolling down his cheek. A wracking sob escapes him and the family takes a moment of silence. Eventually they move on.

Years pass, and every time they come by to honor their own dead, they take a moment for the lone sentry, standing vigil of the civilians around him. One day, they put the grandfather's casket next to the weathered warrior's mark.

"It's what dad would have wanted," the son would say. They would all nod and look down upon the grave, giving thanks to a man that would give so selflessly for others, never knowing that it was a lie the entire time.

My friend, you have honored me more by that comment than anything else in my recent life. You are a beautiful, wonderful person, and may God's mercy every shine on you and your descendents.

dreadnoughts contain the broken near-dead+ bodies of former space marines. They become essentially immortal, dying only after years of service against overwhelming odds in battle. They are repositories of military knowledge, having fought in thousands of battles across hundreds of planets. The wizened husks of their once powerful bodies, kept a live by the mumbled chantings of the tech priests, the tech-laden sarcophagus, and a burning rage at all things xeno. Some notable ones have lived thousands of years, fighting across the galaxy and leading their chapters as near mythic figures of might and lore.

So long story short, they basically are walking tanks/ tombstones, and much cooler than your story (though it was quite good.) Lies are products of chaos and unworthy of utterance in reference to the works of the emperor.
