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.

Great news. The Quartermaster site is now working again. INFOCOM, Mark Anderson, got the information he needed to fix the checkout section of the site. After getting it fixed, he placed an order himself and checked all of the different PayPal transactions sites to ensure it was working correctly. From what he was telling me, all of the PayPal transactions notifications are working as well as all of the transactions notifications on his personal PayPal account. I have told Mark that at IC, the first round is on me. Also I will be presenting him with a golden calculator award.

MARINES ORDER AT WILL.

If you read the State of INFOCOM, Mark gave a pretty good explanation of heartbleed which is a vulnerability to computer systems. Once again, if you do online banking, you should look at your banking site to ensure the heartbleed vulnerability has been fixed. If you don't see this, call your online banking institution and talk to their online department. One you have determined that it has been fixed, please change your password. If someone steals your money, you can't buy from the Quartermaster site.
