153 days. As of today, April 1st, we have 153 days to go until Worldcon begins.

Where does the time go?

Now is the perfect time to get set up for the convention. If you are coming (and I hope you are!), let our team know at the sign-up sheet on the website. This helps us make sure that we have all the necessary slots filled. If you can’t make it, please consider donating to help make this the best convention possible. Every bit helps – no donation is too small (or large). Thank you.

Remember that all donations count towards Order of Queen Elizabeth levels.

There are some live/virtual fundraisers in the planning, complete with opportunities to see stupid human tricks of the Scoville persuasion. We’ll be posting those on Discord & Facebook when we have details. It is almost the home stretch here, so let me know you can make it!

There is a lot happening, so check out the Comings & Goings section – it’s LONG this month!

See You In Chicago!

The ideal nominee has made substantive contributions to the Star Kingdom in the shining example of Edward Saganami, himself. Equivalency in TRMN would be sustained, outstanding contributions with a high quality and service to the Organization as a whole.

The ideal nomination will have detailed information about the nominee and his or her specific contributions between the start of his or her membership up to 30 August 2021 and should include all dates of each action or contribution worthy of nomination. Nominations may also include letters of concurrent recommendation from other ranking officers that bore witness or were directly affected by those contributions.

The Bureau of Ships Committee for HMS Unconquered shall convene beginning 15 October 2021 to consider nominations received thus far. This committee is made up of the senior officers of the Bureau along with the sitting Annual Commanding Officer of Unconquered. The committee will also include representatives from the Bureau of Personnel to advise the committee. Please be advised that this committee shall render decisions based on the strength of the nomination for each nominee; it is therefore important that the nominations be as detailed as possible to provide said nominee with the best possible chance for selection and induction.

Nominations for the billet of Annual Commanding Officer of HMS Unconquered will not be accepted by this Committee. The selection of the Annual Commanding Officer is reserved for the Third Space Lord per Admiralty Order.

Nominations for The Protector’s Own

To: All Officers and Enlisted in the Grayson Space Navy, the Royal Manticoran Forces, Imperial Andermani Navy, Republic of Haven Navy and All Other Members of the Grand Alliance
From: High Admiral James Jones, GSN
Re: Protector’s Own Class of 2021 – Call for Nominations

Here Ye and Pray Attend All Grayson Citizens and All Members of the Grand Alliance:

I am pleased and honored to announce that the nomination period for the Protector’s Own is open, and will remain open until 23:59 EST 18 November 2021 (GMT -0500).

Any person, regardless of rank or branch, may submit nominations for the Protector’s Own.

The requirements for nomination:

Any Grayson may be nominated and considered for their contributions to the Grayson Space Navy and to the TRMN organization as a whole.

Those who are not Grayson may be eligible to be nominated for HMS Unconquered for their exemplary contributions to the TRMN organization as a whole, and nominations for them should be submitted to the Bureau of Ships for inclusion in this year’s deliberation. Nominations will be accepted at buships@trmn.org until 2359 CDT (GMT -0500) on 15 October 2021.

However, any TRMN member, of any rank and from any branch of service, may be nominated for the Protector’s Own, provided that they have profoundly benefitted, specifically, the Grayson Space Navy. Their nominations may include their contributions to TRMN, but the contributions to the GSN are the paramount requirement of the nomination and the decisive factor for their inclusion and in any deliberation.

It is preferred that the nominees have had at least 1 year in service to TRMN, but that will not be a bar from entry if the nomination thoroughly demonstrates exemplary contributions.

Please be as detailed as possible regarding the contributions of the nominee and how they have benefitted the GSN. Nominations must include the name and rank of the nominator and the full name of the nominee, including rank if known. It should have detailed information about the nominee’s specific contributions to the GSN and, if Grayson, to the TRMN as a whole. Please include dates and events or contributions, when possible. Any supporting documentation will be appreciated in the process and should be included in the nomination as attached files.

Nominations that are not detailed will be considered, but, will make the deliberation process more difficult and may hinder the nominee’s induction.

Please only submit one person per nomination email. Nominators may nominate as many members as they believe are worthy to receive this honor.
Individuals may not nominate themselves.
Please nominate any who you believe are worthy of this honor.

Protector’s Own Committee will be empaneled from current members of the Protector’s Own and members of the Office of the High Admiral. The Committee will begin deliberations on 19 November 2021.

The Command Triad for the Protector’s Own will be decided from all members of the Protector’s Own, including new inductees, except for those who are currently in the Protector’s Own Command Triad.

The Protector’s Own Class of 2021 and its Command Triad will be announced on 21 December 2021, in honor, and as part, of the Protector’s Birthday Celebrations.

Please send all nominations to ohagsn@gmail.com.

Chapter Reports

This is a reminder that your Chapter and MarDet reports are due between the 1st and 10th of every EVEN numbered month. One thing I found amazingly helpful when filling them out was to use an online document (Google Docs, Word Online) to keep things organized as they happened. Then, when the reporting month hit, I could just copy and paste them into the reports form, and be done. No trying to remember what happened two months ago at the last minute!

And a reminder that Marksmanship submissions are due the 20th of the month, so we have time to correlate and get things set for the award issuance.

Marines – you now have a new online form to fill out for Bi-Monthly reports. The link is below. It will send the reports to your command triad, your Ship’s CO and to ComForceCom. Please use this form to send in your report that is due on the 5th.

There is only one stipulation with the form at this time. Please do not use autofill. Autofill does not work properly and that information is deleted in the report. You can copy and paste information into the report but forgo the autofill function.

Course Challenge

2nd Fleet is proud to sponsor, and the Imperial Andermani Navy (IAN) is happy to coordinate, an organization-wide Course Challenge from February 1, 2022 to April 30, 2022. Individuals can earn points for each participating fleet or can participate individually as part of the “Grand Reserve Fleet”.

The challenge is simple. Registration will open on February 1, 2022. As soon as a member of the fleet registers, a member of our staff will access their MEDUSA record and note down the number of promotion points they have earned for BuTrain coursework as of the date of their registration. They then take BuTrain courses and as they do, their MEDUSA record will capture their growing total of promotion points (as laid out in AO 1707-01). At the end of the challenge, whichever fleet has earned the largest number of points wins. We will also announce the top individual point-earners.

We are also pleased to announce that an anonymous donor has contributed funds to allow us to send each participant who earns 4 points or more a handsome participation patch (under development). In addition, the top 3 point-earning TRMN members will be awarded GameStop gift cards! Let’s get some Gryphons on that list!

Upcoming Events

The Bureau of Planning is excited to announce the launch of ConStack. This cooperative project between BuPlan and BuComm is now a fabulous new tool that puts information about over 2,000 conventions at your fingertips. All members of TRMN and the public can view ConStack at:

https://constack.trmnbureaus.info/

If you see that an event is missing or has incorrect information, contact your Fleet’s BuPlan Intel Agent or Branch Liaison and they will get it updated.

Gryphon’s Wings Fleet Relief Project

On May 23rd we launched the Gryphon’s Wings Fleet Relief Project. The response has been overwhelming, and I am humbled by the generosity of our members.

We are currently in the midst of a Global pandemic. However, while we are all in the same storm, we are navigating the waters on different ships. Sometimes these waters will be more than we can handle on our own, and we need an extra hand on deck. We want you to know that the 2nd fleet is here for you. 

To that end, we are asking for donations to create an emergency relief fund to be used for TRMN 2nd Fleet members. This fund’s target is to provide immediate short term relief of an urgent crisis. For example: Sending someone grocery money for a weeks worth of groceries (as a lot of food banks are running out of food, short on volunteers, and closing), providing gas money for a week so someone can still travel back and forth providing care-giving to a family member, covering the co-pay cost of a doctors visit, and other small emergency expenses. Anything helps. I am asking for a $5 monthly commitment – the cost of a Starbucks coffee – to assist. Please join me, and those who have already donated, in making TRMN more than just a fan group. Click here, or the banner below, to donate. Meet the Test.

At the same time, we know some are being affected by the effort to combat the virus,including job loss, other reduction of income, medical difficulties, etc. This can result in a tough choice between shelter, transportation, food, or medical care. That is an impossible choice no one should be required to face, and we want to help how we can.

To apply for a Visa Gift Card for you or another member, please click here.

Only the 2nd Fleet CO will see who the requester and/or the potential recipient is.  This will never be held against you in any way. We don’t ask for or expect repayment. This is not charity, we are simply keeping the RMN tradition of seeing that a Queen’s Navy is well rested, well fed, and healthy before going into battle. And this is a battle where victory will be measured in not just survivors but in the quality of that survival.

March Honors – Awards

Parliamentary Medal of Valor

William Knight, Earl White Lion

Admiralty Order 2203-03: Parliamentary Medal of Valor Citation

On July 19, 2021, Earl White Lion was traveling on the highway in New Mexico when he came upon a truck pulled over by the side of the road. The truck was, according to the Earl, “smoking profusely,” and he observed the driver opening the hood. The truck was carrying as a cargo 30,000 pounds of hay. By the time Earl White Lion had safely pulled his car over to render assistance—crossing six lanes of active highway traffic on foot to render said assistance, he observed that the engine was now on fire and the driver was attempting to put the fire out with a hand-held fire extinguisher. The Earl quickly assessed that the fire was out of control, and threatened the safety of both the driver and himself if they stayed. He convinced the driver to withdraw from the area.

While doing so he was proven correct, when the engine suffered a minor explosion. 15 seconds after that a fuel tank ruptured and sprayed burning fuel into the area the driver (and Earl White Lion) had just been standing in. It also sprayed fuel across multiple sections of the road, shutting down traffic lanes.

Earl White Lion then contacted 911, and began directing traffic to avoid the affected areas. When Santa Fe Fire Department officials arrived on scene, it took them two hours to put out the fire, and a spokesman described the truck as being “fully engulfed in flame.”

The incident was also reported on national news service

The statement from Mr. Salazar confirms the danger of the situation: “He proceeded to help me gather my thoughts and move away from the vehicle before the fuel tanks went up…”

But for the actions of Lord William, Mr. Salazar would have been standing next to his truck attempting to put the fire out when the brake line exploded and the fuel tank ruptured, and he would have been covered in burning gasoline. With no one having called 911 and no other passersby present at the time to assist, it is almost certain that he would have suffered life ending injuries. Mr. Salazar, by any reasonable judgment, owes his life to Lord William’s actions. The Earl also took control of the scene and helped ensure that vehicles were aware of the hazard, preventing further injuries.

In addition, while it is not required by the award that the TRMN member be put in danger themselves, Lord William clearly was willing to put himself in danger as well. But for his judgment in the critical moment, he would have been in the area that was covered in burning gasoline as well, and suffered the same injuries. He was willing to risk injury to himself to render aid to a bystander.

The Houses of Parliament have voted to award the Parliamentary Medal of Valor to William Knight, Earl White Lion for these actions.

In Honour of the Queen!
