GRYPHON FLEET ORDER 1912-C, 05DEC2019
On November 8-10, 2019, members of The Royal Manticoran Navy engaged in recruitment and flag-showing efforts at Grand Rapids Comic-Con, Grand Rapid, MI.
For their efforts supporting TRMN actions at Grand Rapids Comic-Con, which was, due to the attendance of Timothy Zahn, declared an Admiralty House Event, the following individuals are hereby awarded the Havenite War Campaign Medal:
ENS Stephen BEALS, RMN HMS Samurai
LTSG Sophia BULL, RMN HMS Valkyrie
CPO Christina R DOANE, RMN HMS Beowulf
S3C Jack Oswald-warren FROST, RMN HMS Beowulf
SGTMAJ Brad HANDLEY, RMMC MARDET Ajax

LTCDR Stephen P MILLER, RMN HMS Samurai
KdS Charles L. SHANANAQUET II, IAN HMS Beowulf

On 9 November, 2019, at approximately 1720 hours, members of HMS Samurai received a call from Captain JG Rex Hood, CO, HMLAC Scythe. His vehicle had been disabled due to an encounter with a deer, and he was stranded. HMS Samurai’s personnel moved quickly to head to CAPTJG Hood’s location, and make sure he was safe, and got him home.
For their actions in rendering aid to a fellow member, and in doing so being forced to leave the convention earlier than planned, the following awards are authorised:
CDR Jeff Smith, RMN HMS Samurai
LTCDR Stephen P Miller, RMN HMS Samurai
ENS Stephen Beals, RMN HMS Samurai
Thank you for your swift assistance and aid to fellow members of the Royal Manticoran Navy!
