Congratulations and Happy 20th Anniversary!!

Fellow Colonials,

             Allow me to take a moment as we salute and recognize on of members who has reached a great milestone in her military career celebrating the 20th Anniversary!!  Her career has span the years in quest to no only training the next generation of US Airman, but help citizen here the our great nations.  During Galacticon 3 which took place May 24th she was not able to properly celebrate her great achievement.  With that being said i was asked and commission to render a unique art piece to honor her accomplishment in the US Armed Forces.

             This art work is present to none other then Cherry Oclima currently serving in the United States Air Force.  The art denotes her love for Science Fiction with a military twist as well as acknowledging her love for family.  The work dimly shows her loving children's names along with loving husband grace the reaches of space.  Bridging the gap which all our families gives us support in our hobbies as well as our love for Science Fiction.  The newly designed graphics are a merger of the US Air Force logo meets Colonial Phoenix in a beautifully designed frame specifically designed by me for this unique piece as well as matching head seal.  This was a labor love and had to put a couple of things on hold in order to meet her deadline for her birthday which is today the 21st of June.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY as well so this unique also covers that area. 

             In closing i would like to add two things first thank you for her husband who secretly contacted me and asked if i would do the honor for rendering the piece.  He had insight and provided me with the information i needed.  Secondly i ask that my art piece be left alone and not tampered with by editing any portion of it to be used on some other certificate or website. So i ask everyone to please respect my request without exception.  Please do not ask me permission to use my emblems b/c the answer will be no i reserve all my creations. THANK YOU ALL!!   I truly appreciate your support.  Without any further delay Ladies and Gentlemen here is the art piece below and link so you can also see it better.  Be safe, ADM Rivera, Fleet Commander, BFC.

WOW, I don't know what to say about this award.  I am lost for words.  All I can do is admire the details of this artwork.  It is very nicely done.  I can tell lots of time has been put into layering this award for the graphics to come into place.  Thank you Miguel!  Thank you very much!  I really greatly appreciate this.  I will cherish this forever!  You have really outdone yourself.  So this was the secret project you wanted me to have a look huh?  

And to my husband, I have to remind myself not to let my guard down so you cannot sneak around :-)  

I am going to print this award and frame it.

And to the rest of you that wished me Happy Birthday, thank you all very much. I greatly appreciate it.  I had a great time celebrating it with my mother for she and I have the same birthday.  At the same  token, I was able to be with my grandmother too for this special occassion.  And that means a lot to me.  My family got me a new Bowflex Xtreme 2 exercise machine.

Reamer, I will have to take a raincheck for now for that drink you are offering at the ship lounge until my return to the Raven.  You all are gonna have to keep some ambrosia  on the side for me.  That is if everybody on the AirWing has not drank it all up yet?  AHEMMMMM!

Happy Birthday Commander and A BIG CONGRATS on this milestone. :-) You derserved it my friend. And to Admiral Rivera, we thank you for taking your time to recognize my very good friend in real of many years, for the things she does both professionally, personal, and in the science fiction community. I know when I spoke to her about how Galacticon 3 went because I could not make it. She told me that was her gift to herself and she enjoyed it very much even if some areas of it, could have been better that allowed her to celebrate her occassion the way she wanted too. She just made the best of the situation because she was there to help fans from all around ,have fun at the convention. I am not going to even get into details about that. All I know is this gesture given by you Admiral Rivera and to all those involve in the planning, cannot be replace by anything out there. Thank you for giving this artwork to someone that truely deserves it and puts the fans and her people's enjoyment before herself especially during Galacticon 3. You do Battlestar Galactica Fan Club HONOR with your tireless work and dedication for the science fiction community especially Battlestar Galactica.


In Service,

Happy Birthday young one! :-) Always watching from the distance :-) Zeus wanted to join in the festivities here but he cannot remember his password. He did a password recovery but cannot remember his own password on his own personal email as well. Go figure when one is getting older. :-)

I want all of you to be on your best behavior today.  No harrassing your fellow crewmates on the Raven ESPECIALLY drunk pilots on the ship lounge. Nothing at all!!!

Today is our esteemed and beloved Commander's Birthday. Before she is made aware of what is going here which I know she will be soon because we cannot keep her off this site for that long (even our best people on the job sent on a secret mission to keep her off this site, will not be able to hold off her long.  That is why she is the Commander), in her honor, we will be on our outmost best behavior and not give her any headache.  






On a more one on one note, a very heartfelt wish of HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you Commander.  I hope this simple little presentation that I know you would appreciate more than anything else, brings a smile in your face today.  I know am not much of a science fiction person and not very knowledgeable in that aspects, but I am trying and learning with your help.

And Admiral Rivera, very nicely done. Thank you!  You and the Commander really do great artworks.

Major Eduardo- "Marine Enforcer"
