I, Kamille Bidan, deeply apologize for having carelessly damaged the EQ-D79F
type probe and inflicted a heavy loss to my unit at 0623 hour on April 20th in
U.C.0087 while I was engaged in training mission around the Moon airspace. This
accident was caused by my inexperience in piloting the vehicle and analyzing
the situation. Even though I am a civilian, I sincerely feel responsible for
the loss of the valuable machine and ask for your forgiveness.
I swear I'll never cause such an accident again and make even greater efforts
in my duties even if I'm merely a civilian.
April 20th, U.C.0087
Kamille Bidan (Citizen ID#BK70111106)
RX-178 No.3 Pilot
The Argama Unit on A.E.U.G Cruiser
(Signature of Kamille Bidan)
Quattro Bageena (Lieutenant of the Argama Unit)
Astonaige Medoz (Master Chief Petty Officer of the Argama Unit)
Henken Bekkener (Commander of the Argama Unit)
First I would like to protest that, while I'm merely a civilian, I strongly
doubt if there is any legitimate reason in my submitting this kind of written
explanation in the formal style.
I don't disagree that even a civilian would need to apologize when he broke
some public property. But I didn't do it on purpose. Besides, even if I would
have to say sorry, I don't understand why I have to turn in a written
explanation in such formal style of military.
If I have to apologize, I shouldn't do so to the military but to those taxpayers
who supplied us with the money to purchase the machinery. Moreover the apology
should come from all the personnel involved. The accident was not caused by an
error of one individual but resulted from every actions and negligence of all
the involved people. If this case could be closed just by Kamille Bidan, a mere
civilian, saying sorry, it would reveal the fact that this so-called "military"
organizations based on such fallacies and hypocrisies. If you people can live
with that, I might not be the one to complain about it. But is it really OK?
In addition, if I dare to point out, it's obvious that the situation having
resulted in the accident was mainly caused by a dangerous act of provocation by
Lieutenant Quattro Vageena.
If you review the maneuver records of the machine operated by Lieutenant Quattro
(File#FGH2120-R646-F/0, you'll clearly see that the said maneuver was a
dangerous conduct, drastically deviating from any conceivable scope of our
training mission. I assume that the act of provocation resulted from Lieutenant
Quattro's personal grievance against me (please refer to
File #FGH2120-R646-F/08: File Cluster M: Index Tag #12989 - #20533).
In this regard, I believe anybody will have a serious doubt over Lieutenant
Quattro's aptitude as a pilot.
The grudge between Lieutenant Quattro and myself was initiated by the
lieutenant's one-sided misconception, and his maniacal tenacity obviously caused
the accident. To me, it's simply unbelievable that such a madman has been
allowed not only to operate a mobile suit and get involved in military missions
but even to command a whole unit.
Letting a person like Lieutenant Quattro command a mission is like letting a
monkey handle a bomb. Saying it, I even feel as if I were insulting a monkey.
I simply don't understand why everyone can put up with seeing that madman
bossily swagger around. Everyone, don't you feel it's crazy?
If I further elaborate on this situation, obviously, our superior has made some
erroneous selection and judgment as he picked up the madman for a pilot's
position and engaged him in military missions. Commander Henken's leadership
totally lacks the considerations needed to run a group operation smoothly. In
other words, he doesn't have eyes to evaluate his soldiers. First of all, I have
a strong doubt over Commander Henken's qualification as a military leader while
he puts his trust in such a good person who always hides his face with
sunglasses. Is he good enough to be any kind of leader?
Lieutenant Quattro should reveal his own eyes when he talks to other people. Or
is his face so ugly he really needs to hide it? Don't make me laugh.
As a conclusion, I would like to protest that the blame over me should be
alleviated to a great degree under the circumstances I explained. And it's only
reasonable that Lieutenant Quattro and Commander Henken who connived the
lieutenant's action should be also held responsible as much as they deserve.
What's the matter with you, making me write this kind of explanation?! Don't
you guys ever remember the fact that I've been fighting simply because I was
asked to do so? Does anyone have a sense of fairness in this military?
