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.

As we say in the South – I had a big time at IC in Rockford, ILL. I participated in the Marine Mess, opening ceremony honor guard, represented Region 1 in the General Session, helped Mike and Mark with the international muster, and debuted my Admiral Marcus uniform at Admirals dinner. Overall I had a great time with negative bed bug bites, no mold in the room and the service at the hotel was great. The flight back from Chicago left a lot to be desired although. It took the plane instrument mechanics over 3 hours to repair the plane intercom.

ATTENTION ON DECK

Let it be known that TJ Allen is hereby appointed to the position of DCOFINCOM. I am asking the COINFOCOM to grant him General Staff reader access. I look forward to working with TJ.
