You said that you aren't a soldier. I understand. Many have been called to service in this army who are not soldiers, or who would be other than soldiers given an option in a universe with fewer wars.

I am. I have always been. I am a soldier.

The badge represents all that I serve. In war, you have seen what it means. In peace, it remains. Duty, order, courage, freedom. It is worthy of honor and respect. It should not be cast aside as a symbol of mere division, because that was never what it was meant to be.

I understand that this is the path Autobot Command has chosen. I respect that you have the authority to make this choice, although I disagree profoundly with the choice. I am prepared to accept the consequences of my actions. I will report at 0600 on the morning of the effective date and go like a brother officer to the holding cell of your choice when you arrest me for insubordination.

I will not remove this badge.

Yours sincerely,

Minimus Ambus
