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 March 2012


Marines,
This report is late, again, sorry. Here we go...

Numbers
During the month of February, the SFMCA Faculty issued 176 grades to 40 unique students. March promises to be back to our standard numbers by virtue of being a longer month.

Arrivals
As previously announced, Master Gunnery Sergeant James Maarsingh has been appointed to the Infantry School Directorship. He's also been promoted to Master Guns lately, so congratulate him when you see him.

Departures
The Maritime Operations School (MO) is now vacant. As of now I am accepting applications for the post and will continue to do so until 30APR2012.

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.

Good luck to all candidates and I look forward to having to making a difficult decision in May.
