***~CMDR's Corner~***

Welcome to my first report as Firebird Squadron Commander, it's been quite some time since I wrote a report but I think I remember how it goes...

A new dawn approaches... a long dark period comes to a close...

No? That's not how it goes?.. What do you mean stick to the script?.. I didn't agree to that! Do I have to?.. Why are you so strong?!?.. Oh alright! Fine! Such a Party pooper sometimes `L

Lets try this again... It is a great honour to be appointed as Firebird Squadron Commander and firstly I’d like to thank the shiny Admirals for their encouragement & support. Secondly, many thanks to MAJ SirCaleb for the amazing job he did as Firebird CMDR. He has agreed to stay on within the squadron and is the new Firebird XO, turning down what I was told was a lucrative role of bikini inspector on one of the moons of Ryloth. We thank him for his dedication and also congratulate him on his fancy new rank.

***~Squadron News~***

*~A New Era~*

So as afore mentioned, I, General Master am the new Commander type guy of Firebird Squadron.
Many of you are perhaps asking "Who is this Master person"? "Why is this Master person"? "Why am I reading this"? and "Why is he so handsome"?
These are just some of the many topics we will explore together in the coming weeks, months and even years.
I hope you brought a notebook... there will be tests.

*~Welcome Welcome!~*

Firstly let us welcome Gyot Soto who arrived to our sandy shores this month. He is already settling in nicely as you will see further below. Welcome aboard Gyot.
Sadly LT Suza leaves us for the reserves. Thank you for your service Suza and hope to see you again soon.

*~June MP Fun!~*

Amazing month from Gyot, Jafan, SirCaleb & Turel by smashing the Rebel Scum in the Multiplayer arena. They managed between them to earn 86 LoC's and 2 LoS's.

*~I'm Learding...!~*

Imperial University courses were popular this month with several of the squadron taking pride in their education. Gyot & Jafan led the pack! See activity section below for more in-depth details.

New Firebird Squadron Commander! May my reign be long and terrible.

***~Ewok of the Month~***

Yub Yub!

VA Locke Setzer
For promoting me to CMDR!
