Dear Mr Minister,
due to the reasons I elaborate upon on the attached 3-page letter which is an attachment to this document, I urge you deprive me of the badges of honor from the military operations of the Army of the Czech Republic performed under the NATO umbrella.
I thank you for your understanding and assertively request your endorsement of my application.
Reserve Lieutenant Colonel Marek Obrtel MD
