Greetings Marine!

The STARFLEET Marine Corps is a group affiliated with STARFLEET, The International Star Trek Fan Association Inc. The SFMC is considered an office under the Vice Commander, STARFLEET and as such reports to Vice Commander, STARFLEET. Fictionally, the SFMC is part of the Ground Forces that are rarely seen in the episodes but are assumed to be a part of the Naval Fleet of the United Federation of Planets. We are members of STARFLEET. The Corps does not have different requirements for membership, except that a STARFLEET Marine must be a member in good standing in STARFLEET. Although it does have a different name for each rank within the promotional system, and a different organizational structure than the Naval portion of STARFLEET, STARFLEET Marines are regular, dues paying members. Some STARFLEET members are Marine Reserve. These are members who are active in the naval portion of the Fleet AND with the Ground Forces area as well. Occasionally you may find a STARFLEET Marine who is or was active military, but this is not a requirement to be in the Corps.

State of TRACOM 2013 August 2013


Greetings everybody,



First off, sorry for the tardiness of this. As Steve Miller said, ‘Time keeps slippin’, slippin’, slippin’ into the future’



It is with a heavy heart that I must announce that I have received, and accepted the resignation of Phillip Muller as the Sergeant Major of TRACOM, as well as the NCO Development Director.



I would like to thank Phillip for his hard work, and we wish him the best in his future endevours.



This means that we are currently looking for an NCO to fill his position.



Applications will be accepted until Friday, October 4 2013 at 2359 Central Daylight Time.



Here are the requirements:



1. All TRACOM Staff members must have completed PD-10 (Marine Basic Training), PD-20 and OTS; 2. Must be a member in good standing of STARFLEET; 3. Be at least 18 years of age; 4. Branch Directors must have completed every course offered by their Branch up to and including the –30/-301 level coursework (Bachelor’s of Military Science); 5. If a staff member is appointed to a position within TRACOM, and that person has not completed the requirements for the position, he/she shall have 60 days to complete the requirements or be asked to resign the position; 6. All candidates should review the TRACOM Policies and Procedures Manual paying close attention to the duties outlined in sections 3.01, 3.02, 3.04 Doctrine Section sub-section Branch Directors, and section

3.05 IN FULL. Please send your ‘Fleet resume, a letter of intent, and why you feel you would make a valuable addition to the Training and Doctrine Command Staff to me at tjlittou@cox.net.

7. This billet must be filled by a Non-Commissioned Officer or Warrant Officer.



We are also looking for an assistant or two to work in the Doctrine department under the supervision of the DCO-Doctrine. These persons will be assisting with research, writing, fact-checking, editing and other duties as directed by the DCO-Doctrine. Just don’t let him try to get you to pick up his dry cleaning.



The requirements are the same as above, with the exception of #7.

Commissioned Officers are welcome to apply. Applications will be accepted until the same time as the applications for SGM TRACOM.



The renumbering project is chugging right along and will be completed very soon.



During the month of August, there were a total of 67 graduates from the SFMCA, 12 Distinction, 23 Honors and 32 Pass grades.



Until later this month…



TJL
