>>\ We made it through sir, by the skin of our teeth.

<<\ You can say that again. I expect your full report by the end of the week. I have to tell you Captain Banta, I'm not the most pleased with how it went down there.

>>\ Neither am I sir, we made mistakes and civilians got hurt as a result... Sir, if I may- 

<<\ You may.

>>\ Thank you sir, I appreciate it. So do the rest of my personnel.

<<\ Try and make it quick. We have pressing matters to attend to in the colonies. One more thing: I'll be honest Captain, I didn't call you just to make sure you were in fact alive.

Echo Company,

Another month of hard work and another promotion ceremony to reward it. There have been challenges and problems this month, but we've powered through them and continued to grow. I am extremely pleased with the outlook of this unit and the general atmosphere that we have here. Keep up the good work. Goliath Actual, out.



Silver Star

1stLt. D.Taft
Here are the reasons why I nominate 1Lt D.Taft for the Silver Star, and why I believe he fits the criteria. When J.Chamberlain (AKA Daddy) left the 17th, he was awarded the 
Silver Star for his actions and donations to helped keep this unit in working order.  I believe that Taft has put in at least the same amount of effort as Chamberlain did, not to discredit the 
incredible efforts of J.Chamberlain, as real life always comes first and without his vision and insanely hard work we would not have this website, our servers, or the community at all.  
However, Taft picked up the slack in all departments when Chamberlain had to leave, and without his help getting through that transition the 17th and 83rd would have likely both fallen apart.


Legion of Merit

MSgt. L.Buckman
I am nominating GySgt L.Buckman because he has been creating quality operations since he has joined this unit. Additionally with all of his work during the campaign cycle he works really hard during the precampaign cycle creating a intricate story line that most of the unit never actually gets to see because we miss the little pieces of Intel that are left on 
the guys that we kill. From what he has shown me with his prep work he goes and creates a full enemy command structure with all the way down to battalion level with 
backstories for all officers.  Along with doing the campaign work he also ensures that we have working templates that we can train and fight on. Without his hard work none of our 
operations would have been possible to the extent and quality he has presented for approximatley the last year and a half.

After orders of retreat during Operation Backbiter: Serpent's Head, SSgt C.Elliott was found rescuing GySgt S.Rune after his warthog had suffered severe damage. 
SSgt C.Elliott stabilized the Gunnery Sergeant and was prepared to transport him to safety shortly before assistance arrived. The Staff Sergeants actions were found 
     meritorious and heroic in his loyalty and determination.

LCpl J.Eagle successfully eliminated a Mako Drone utilizing an SRS-99C without any assistance. The Drone was bombarding BLUEFOR forces and created havoc for many forces. This action allowed for the safe retreat of forces without the fear of being tracked back to the forward operating base.

During Operation: Backbiter, Mission: Complications the personnel before you fought with valor. Their entire squad wiped and encircled 
these men fought to their last in order to keep enemy "Beetle" APCs distracted to allow the rest of the company to escape

During Operation Backbiter, Mission Complications, WO1 Miller provided close air coverage for CWO2 Strider and CWO3 Woolridge during
 their gun runs over the mortar pits, helping ward off encroaching aerial forces. After all other Valkyrie elements were forced out of the AO, WO1 Miller 
continued to engage enemy air assets, drawing their fire away from friendly ground elements. After his Pelican suffered heavy damage, he 
still continued to harass mobilizing enemy vehicle depots, thus alleviating threats of hostile armor on the eastern front of the AO.

SSgt Jedi has both performed exceptionally in his designated fields both on and off the battlefield. He has given valuable time and effort to shaping the 
unit and his squad, which has helped build a stronger community, and have demonstrated exceptional abilities as a combat leader. Without his leadership and 
dedication to the unit, the community wouldn’t be the same.

Echo Company,

Today I am formalizing the formation of two new elements within our company. These new elements will be taking some personnel from each existing element to fill out their own rosters. This also means that there will be 2 new Element Leads on your Team Net radio frequencies. As most of the personnel movements involved in this growth need to be approved on down the line, I will just be announcing the new element Leaders and Assistant Element Leaders.

First up, our addition to Combat Team 1 "Ares":

Element 1-3 "Hades"
Element Leader: N.Jedi
Assistant Element Leader: "K.Galligan

Next, the newbies for Combat Team 2 "Jaeger":

[Image: RVL1UNM.png]
Element 2-3 "Voyager"
Element Leader: J.Cunningham
Assistant Element Leader: "GySgt. C.Liorman

I will be finishing approvals for personnel movements as the week goes on so these elements will see combat at this Saturday's operation on 24MAR2018. That's all I have for now, keep an eye on the discord and Teamspeak for further info. Goliath Actual, out.
