Top news in this belated edition of the Warrior Report is a high honor bestowed on one of our own: MAJ Hav Antiel was awarded his first Gold Star of the Empire! Hav's been an outstanding leader and pilot over the past few months, so the leadership wanted to recognize that by awarding him something special. Well done!
Other awards from the October evaluation, and I noticed that there's a very pleasing progression:
- LCM Rando was awarded his third Bronze Star of the Empire
- LC Earnim Branet was awarded his twelfth Bronze Star of the Empire
- GN Dunta Polo was awarded his seventeenth Bronze Star of the Empire
- Your fearless leader was awarded his twentieth Bronze Star of the Empire
LCM Rando reached the rank of Knight in the Fleet Commander's Honor Guard, which happens to be one of the ranks tied to a career achievement medal. As a result, Rando was granted the Palpatine Crescent. Nice work!
One of our original Warriors, present for the ship's recommissioning in 2014, has decided to depart for the Reserves. GN Jarek La'an has served a number of different roles in the TC from top to bottom and we'll miss his input on the tough decisions when those come up. As usual, the job for the rest of us is to keep going so that he has a Corps to return to when he's ready.
With excellent timing, we had two more pilots added to our roster this week. LT Alixandr Archangelmann came out of the Inactives and was assigned to Kappa Squadron, and SL Acura is a fresh recruit that was assigned to Sin Squadron. Welcome aboard!
LCM Rando continues to be the winner of each week of TIE Corps on Patrol, though the SOO is giving him trouble in XWA. Still, Rando had plenty of points and was the overall winner for November, which added an IS-GW to his already impressive haul of medals. Great job!
In Warrior Trivia, GN Pickled Yoda claimed the top spot in both Weeks Twelve and Thirteen in a true return-to-form for the three-time champion. COL Mark Schueler's been conspicuously absent, though, which I'm thinking is the result of the fill-in-the-blank style from the last couple of weeks. I'm out of good Jedi training quotes, so he might be glad to hear that we'll be changing formats again in Week Fifteen.
