Battlestar Raven December 2013 Hall of Promotions


To All Colonials and Ravens,

As I get back into the swing of things from my R & R, December is the month where I wanted to recognize the following Ravens on this promotion cycle, for their loyal and continued service to the Raven especially while I was on my R & R.  It really does help having quality members because it makes it easier for a Commander to take a break and do the things one needs from time to time in real life with ones family and love ones.  I believe in having quality members rather than quantity.  Any chapter can have so many members but if only a few are active, I would personally rather have those those small amount of good people rather than just bodies as I have seen from experience. And the Raven has been blessed with so many good members from all around the world. And this month promotion list are some of those members that have really proven themselves they are just not here for the ficticious rank or position they are given and assigned to but rather they are here for the fun, friendship and comraderie the Raven gives them as members.  There is an old saying that what you put into your membership is what you get out of it. I took into consideration the following things:

1.  Time in service

2.  The amount of participation  (whether it be on the Raven media outlets such as FB, Twitter or the BFC website)

3.  Loyalty to ones group

4.  The effort one puts into the group no matter how little they can put in ( I don't ask anyone to do what they do 24/7.  Remember, real life comes first and we ALL do this for fun only in the spirit of BSG)

So without further ado, please JOIN ME in congratulating these individuals for their loyal and continued service. The promotion is effective immediately.   I look forward to announcing the list of names again on the next promotion cycle. 

To the following Ravens on the this promotion list, A BIG CONGRATULATIONS to all of you from yours truely, your Commander.  And thank you for everything!  I already have the bartender on the ship lounge bring out the finest ambrosia there is aboard the Raven for all of you.  

But I better not see anyone of you come close to the lounge until you are ALL OFF DUTY.  No drinking on the job!  I hope I made myself clear.  I will also bring some of my very own homemade "HOOCH".  It is something I have learned to make while spending those times down in Engineering as  CEO of Battlestar Aries.  ;-)  :-)   I had to keep myself occupied whenever I was off duty while Admiral Rivera sits on his comfortable office and I am sweating down in Engineering when I was on the Aries ;-)

PS.  I would like to note that there are more people who deserve to be promoted but are not eligible on this promotion cycle.

The experienced Crew here are role models to us new folks, and give us wise counsel. More importantly, they make us welcome. To be in such company is a gift.

Good Ship and a good Crew. It's gonna' be a good year. Lookin' forward to it. Iceworm

Sgt.Iceworm, congratulations on a well and hard earned promotion. You are one of the good guys, remember that.

Sgt Iceworm,

Men of your caliber are always welcome in Officer's Country as far as I'm concerned. It would be my pleasure to buy you a bottle of Ambrosia the next time you're in the ships lounge!!!!!

SEMPER FI Marine!!!!!!

SO SAY WE ALL! ! ! ! !

First off, CONGRATULATIONS to all that got promoted. It is well deserved!

Sgt. Oakley, your good deeds during Galacticon 3 did not go un-notice.  The Commander and I were informed by Msgt. Sardeson about what you did for certain individuals there.  Plus with my own observations from the distance, it was not really a hard choice whether to promote you and the others. Each and everyone of you deserved it.  Like I said to you on the side, I am new to science fiction and to all this cosplay but I am learning from each and everyone of you and of course, from our Commander here.   Hopefully with the new year coming up, we can get things lined up for the Raven Marines.  I will enlist the Commander's help to help us promote and recruit more quality people as she so pointed out which she prefers and I prefer as well, to help make the Raven Marine Detachment aboard the Raven, the best out there.  I find myself actually working on a few things because the Commander says so ;-) :-)

I will get in touch with you on the side.  But most definitely for 2014, we will have the first Raven Marine patch in the works and made for 2014.  I already looked at some companies to make it including the company the Commander had the Raven seal patch made. 

Scorpion actually did beat you to it Sgt. Oakley!  And once we get the Raven Marine Detachment off the ground the way it should, I need to speak to you about something I would like for you to consider.

SEMPER FI!!!!!!!!!

Lt. Colonel Eduardo "Marine Enforcer"

To my OIC LTC Enforcer I give my first salute as a Sergeant (which, I believe, also means if it's his first salute received he owes me a cubit, though Scorpion may have beaten me to it).

To all the Officer's I say if my kids ever have to go to war, I hope it's under Leaders like those here. It does look, however, like the whole frakkin bunk area is now Officer Country.

To all I say not to worry, 'cause there's still enough NCO's and CPO's around here to get all the work done.

Congrats to Rob and Scorpion. I have two sets of Corporal pips: I'm sending one set to Rob now, and would like to save the other for Scorpion when he makes the chevrons.

Boss, thanks for the honor of serving and thanks for encouraging my behavior.

Respectfully, Sgt. Paul Iceworm Oakley

Whatever The Immediate future Holds, We Shall Face It With The same Fortitude We Always Have; So say we All!

All I can say is, keep up the great job everyone and 2014 will be the YEAR OF THE RAVEN as well....A big year for the Raven ;-) :-)  You will see!  Sorry, NO SPOILERS! Not even a little hint!  :-)
