Re: Operational Awards, Klingon Toy Drive 2019

GRYPHON FLEET ORDER 1912-G, 12DEC2019

On 7 December, 2019 members of HMS Demon joined members of the local Klingon Assault Group in KAG’s annual Toys for Tots drive.

For his effort in organizing the event in his persona as Brigadier Marok zantai-toQqul, CO Cold Terror Fleet, Klingon Assault Group, the following member is hereby awarded the Conspicuous Bravery Medal
S2C Marc MALNEKOFF, RMN HMS Demon

CAPTJG Justin F. DUPRAS, RMN HMS Demon
RADM Geoffrey STRAYER, RMN HMS Demon

Re: Awarding of Queen’s Bravery Medal

GRYPHON FLEET ORDER 1912-E, 12DEC2019

Over a span of several days, Captain JG James MOYER came to the assistance of one of his officers serving on HMS Death Claw, assisting in a move across town. His assistance provided significant relief to this officer, both financially and temporally. In the course of this, CAPTJG Moyer assisted in packing, loading, and transporting both boxed items and furniture. This activity is in the best spirit of the officer corps of the Royal Manticoran Navy, and deserves recognition.

For his actions rendering aid when needed, and in doing so going above and beyond the call of duty, CAPTJG Moyer is hereby awarded the Queen’s Bravery Medal, and is therefore entitled to the post nominal letters of ‘QBM’.

The Tradition Lives!
