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 July 2013

Sorry for the lateness of this report. I got caught up in the preparations for International Muster and IC 2013.
I had a great time at IC, it was great seeing old friends and meeting new ones. I enjoyed announcing the awards at the International Muster. It is always great when I get to recognize Marines for the hard work they do. Please join me in congratulating the award recipients.
Now that I’m back from my trip I have posted the latest academy course renumbering I received from TRACOM. We are continuing to make progress with this project but it will take some time to complete all the remaining courses.
We are continuing our search to fill key staff positions, the G-3 Publications Officer. And some Web Team staff. If you have any questions in regards to any INFOCOM staff positions please let me know.
I will be adding the new Special Operations parachute qualification wings to the QM site in the near future, be sure to stop by and pick up a pair.

And in closing here are the pingdom stats for July.
