State of FORCECOM, March 2011
Greetings from the Office of Forces Command,

I have just returned from attending Marine tactical training with the Marines of the 173rd MSG “The Black Cats” of the 3rd Battalion, 1st Brigade. It was a great day and at the end of the day we were all sore and tired and we went and fellowshipped at Golden Corral for dinner.  The weekend before hand I was at the 2nd Brigade Muster in Tampa, Florida and a good time of fun and fellowship was had with the Marines in the 2nd.

I would like to congratulate the following Marines from the 2nd Brigade

TJ Allen – Cross of Valor
Cindy Cook – Sword of Valor
Anne Zecca – Shield of Valor

After reading the Brigade reports for the Feb reporting period I am pleased to announce that we have over 1000 marines in the Corps.  The largest unit in the corps is a 3 way tie with 26 members and they are 212th MSG in the 12th Brigade and the 888th and the 898th in the 17th Brigade.

The largest Marine Strike Groups listed by Brigades are:
1st: 173rd “The Black Cats” with 23 Marines
2nd: 631st “Fighting Ospreys” with 17 Marines
3rd: 313th “Riven Seraphim”  with 12 Marines
4th: 1st “Border Bandits”  with 19 Marines
5th: 503rd “The Spartans”  with 22 Marines
6th: 832nd “Hearts of Ice” with 7 Marines
7th: 736th “The Raptors” with 13 Marines
8th: 360th “The Spirit Riders” with 3 Marines
10th: 424th “The Smiling Cats” with 6 Marines
11th: 377th “Thunder from Downunder” with 17 Marines
12th: 212th “Warriors of Justice with 26 Marines
13th: 455th “The Fighting Wolfpack” with 5
15th: 95th “Sentinals” with 17 Marines
17th: 888th “Tiger Sharks” with 26 Marines
         898th “Flying Medicine Men” with 26 Marines
20th 380th “Chancellory Guard” with 4 Marines

If you believe your unit should be listed on this list then make sure all your marines are listed in the database as either Active Marines or Marine Reserves.

I would like to encourage all the Marines to nominate any marines that think are worthy of the Marine Valor awards and when you write up the recommendations make sure you include as much information as you can and then it will make the job of the Brigade OIC’s job much harder when they have to select the Brigade Valor awards. I would encourage all the Marines to participate in a charity event your chapter or MSG/MEU supports.

If you love reading books I encourage you to participate in the SFMC Reading Challenge. To participate in the reading challenge you just need to keep track of the books you read. A reminder that Award nominations, must be made no more than six (6) months after the event leading to the nomination. The only exceptions to this policy are nominations for Honor and Valor awards which are, by necessity, made for actions over the course of the preceding year. Any nominations for awards older than six (6) months (except for Valor and Honor Award nominations), will be summarily denied based on this policy. Another thing is that you can nominate more than one person for one award. Some find out when your Brigade Valor award deadline is and nominate Marines in your brigade an often.

Until next time
