FIREBIRD SQUADRON WSR
SQUADRON WSR #48 (07-OCT-29 ABY)
FROM: General Stryker, Firebird Squadron Commander
TO: VA Silwar Naillo, ISD-II Challenge
CC: Wing X
DATE SUBMITTED: October 7, 29 ABY
Squadron is, as of 6.30pm EDT today, ONE
YEAR OLD! Happy Birthday, Firebird Squadron!
It has been a long year, with triumphs and tribulations aplenty: we
have made new friends, welcomed back old friends, and watched friends
go on to their own commands or fade away into retirement. Since its
commissioning, Firebird Squadron has had twenty-five pilots pass
through its barracks, from veterans such as Elwood the Brave, Jarek
La'an and Ricaud, to newcomers like Eriksen83 and Sylas Pitt. I hope
every pilot who has spent time with the squadron has enjoyed it,
because that's what we are about!
This also marks the longest time I have spent in any one position that
wasn't the Reserves, the previous record-holder being my seven months
and ten days as Combat Operations Officer in 2007.
To celebrate the anniversary, this is a special one-off report to share
our successes thus far:
Major Competition Results
Wake Me When November Ends (Challenge-wide): 1st
Chalquilla Cup 1 (TC-wide): 1st Place
Exercise (Re)Mobilisation 3 (TC-wide): Joint 4th with Sin Squadron
SP Missions: 392
SP High Scores: 6
Silver Stars: 31
Bronze Stars: 31
Platinum Wings: 4
Gold Wings: 20
Gold Ribbons: 8
*These statistics drawn from MSE reports and added by hand, so they
might be out by a handful of SP missions, LoCs, or LoSes.
For a squadron at least initially comprised of crusty old veterans from
the original Infiltrator Wing who just wanted to socialise and play
some games, those are pretty respectable numbers! Hopefully we can
equal or beat them going into Firebird's second year!
BIRTHDAY FIREBIRD SQUADRON!
this report has been entirely self-serving, but it's our birthday so we
can do what we want!)
