"Listen up. There's a lot of rumors going around about what we're up against here. I'm not going to lie to you, we don't know a whole lot.
Now, I know many of you are worried about your families. And yes, the rumors are true, the enemy has given us the choice to abandon the planet. I know the offer is tempting. Rest assured, every citizen too cowardly to hold a gun is being evacuated as we speak. But let me tell you something else. The enemy says this world is theirs. That its always been theirs, that they built it. Well, I don't know about that, but this city ain't theirs, theses people ain't theirs, these shrines and statues and ships and factories, none of them are theirs. I've served by the lot of you in the past. We stood and we fought on this soil together. Twice we took this rock from the Orks. We built these cities, and we battled at the feet of these temples. We payed for this world in blood, and by The Emperor I say that makes it ours!
Now any of you who want to run away, any of you who wants to start a new life on one of the nearby hell-holes, well... nows your chance. But me? I'm going to stay here, and I'm going to take my gun, and I'm going to trade my services to the local cog-boys for enough ammo to take down each and every xeno-bastard who dares step one foot onto my planet! Now. Who's with me?"
