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 INFOCOM December 2012

Seasons Greetings from INFOCOM!

This has been a very long year for INFOCOM.. we've had several staff
changes, two major website revisions, several publication updates, and a
whole lot more.All these changes have, for the most part, been for the
best and we've had very little problems with the changes.That has made
the jobs of all those involved much easier and we are all thankful for that.

With the holiday season coming up, INFOCOM is closing our doors starting
this Saturday December 22nd.We will not be re-opening our doors till Jan
10th 2013.This is to give everyone a chance to decompress, enjoy time
with family and most importantly enjoy the holiday season with their
loved ones.

2013 is shaping up to be a very busy year for INFOCOM.We have several
more publication updates to work on, and our G3 staff will be gearing up
for some big projects throughout the year.We'll be continuously updating
our websites to provide the latest/greatest to the corps as a whole and
try our best to meet the needs of the corps.We can't do it without you,
the members of the SFMC, supporting us.Starting next year, we will be
publishing a brand-new version of the ATTENTION ON DECK publication,
once every quarter.To make the AOD a great thing again, we need your
help, marines.The only way to do this is to send us your
submissions.These can be anything from a after-action-report from a
convention, MSG event, Brigade Muster, or even the International
Conference.In fact, we'll welcome all these submissions and much, much
more.The final issue has shaped up to be an AMAZING issue by the sheer
number of submissions we have received.I'm completely beside myself with
the number we've received, and I sincerely hope we continue to get more
for subsequent issues.

I'm not going to bore you with more details about INFOCOM's plans for
2013, nor am I going to bore you with what we have accomplished.A lot of
the work that has been done was done behind the scenes, and we've all
worked very hard to accomplish what we have.2012 is winding down quickly
(And with a bang apparently.. I'm going through what looks to be the
biggest blizzard in the area for the year.. lol) and I'm finding myself
thankful for all the support I've had over the last year.I want to thank
the past COINFOCOM's for their hard work, Wade Hoover, Sean Neimeyer,
and Mike Timko.All three of these gentlemen have served INFOCOM with
distinction and I thank them for their service.I especially want to
thank Wade and Mike for having me on board as their DCO's.Thank you to
the General Staff for the vote of confidence when they installed me as
the latest COINFOCOM.I hope I can continue to accomplish the goals we
set out to do in the same fashion that I have in the past year.

Finally, to all you marines out there.Please remember during this
holiday season that we still have members of the military serving
overseas.Please keep them in your prayers and your thoughts, and wish
them a very Merry Christmas when you get a chance.Most importantly,
THANK THEM for their service to their country, regardless of which
country they served.Their sacrifice to their country is what keeps our
countries safe.Never forget them.

Happy Holidays, STARFLEET!!!See you in 2013!
