Re: Operational Awards, STARFLEET International Conference 2018
GRYPHON FLEET ORDER 1808-B, 16AUG2018
Bravo Zulu to Royal Manticoran Navy personnel who participated in the STARFLEET International Conference (IC), an event run by the fan organization STARFLEET International (SFI), held 10-12 August 2018 in Minneapolis, MN. TRMN members provided, set up, and operated the stage backdrop and audiovisual assets for the conference. This saved SFI considerable expense, for which their leadership expressed gracious thanks. Additionally, TRMN personnel set up and operated the Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator for the enjoyment of SFI members, and hosted Saturday evening Missile Pod volleys.
The impact of this inspirational hospitality and service cannot be overstated. Commander STARFLEET (the president of SFI) wore his RMN beret at the IC Closing Ceremonies, and several SFI members joined TRMN during the event, facts that have great implications for the future good relations of our organizations.
Effective 16 August 2018, the following personnel are awarded the MASADAN OCCUPATION MEDAL (MOM) for their volunteer participation while wearing TRMN uniform or con minimum at at STARFLEET IC 2018:
CPT Larry FRENCH, RMMC, MarDet Demon
CDRE Cheryl KRAUSE, BuPlan
SMCPO Bill LOCHEN, Acting SMCPON
CDRE Christopher THOMPSON, BuShips
Effective 16 August 2018, the following personnel are awarded the PRISONER OF WAR MEDAL (POW) for their volunteer participation while wearing a mix of TRMN and Starfleet uniform at STARFLEET IC 2018:

Thank you for representing TRMN in the greater fan community!
