This news is shocking and very sad.  Shawn was a tireless worker for the CDF, and passionate about his gaming projects.  He will be sorely missed in the 8th Fleet, and I hope the Ironfist will find a good officer to take command.

My prayers go out to Shawn's family and friends.  I do know that his family has requested that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Wounded Warrior Project.  Info can be found at:  http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/

Gunstar Deliverance will dim all lights and engage silent running in memory of "Airborne" for 24 hours.

I also ask all 8th Fleet units comply with Admiral Jenner's orders.

Godspeed, my comrade.

So say we all...

Actor Patrick Macnee passed away on June 25th, of natural causes at the age of 93.  He was surrounded by his family at his home in the Los Angeles (CA) area.

While he was best known for his iconic role of bowler wearing, umbrella wielding intelligence agent John Steed in the cult 1960s British TV series The Avengers, Macnee appeared in the original version of Battlestar Galactica as Count Iblis in "War of the Gods:  Part 1 & 2," provided the voice of the Cylon Imperious Leader, and did the narration of the series' opening credits.

Macnee's other acting credits included such films as the 1951 version of "A Christmas Carol," the 1984 James Bond film "A View to a Kill," and Rob Reiner's 1984 rock mockumentary "This is Spinal Tap."

Battlestar Galactica creator Glen A. Larson died November 14th, of esophageal cancer.  He was 77.

In addition to creating the 1978 series and its spinoff Galactica 1980, Larson was listed as a consulting producer on the Ron Moore/David Eick rebooted 2003 miniseries, the SyFy series (2004-09), the TV movies "Razor" and "Blood and Chrome," the direct-to-DVD movie "The Plan," and the short-lived prequel series Caprica.  Larson also composed the theme music for the original BSG and Galactica 1980.

Glen Larson also created the 1980s sci-fi series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, Knight Rider, The Six Million Dollar Man, and the short-lived series Manimal and Automan.  His non-genre credits include creating the TV series Magnum P.I., Quincy M.E., and The Fall Guy.

Born in Long Beach, CA, Larson originally was a member of The Four Preps, a pop singing group in the 1950s.  Their best known hits included "Twenty Six Miles (Santa Catalina)," and "Dreamy Eyes."

Here's a thought for TIG for enlisted 3 months for Crewman to PO/3 and 6 months for PO/2 & PO/1, 9 months CPO, and 12 months for the higher PO ranks?

Are there any time in grade requirements for enlisted?

We haven't specifically articulated it but, you can assume that the same TIG requirements would apply for enlisted ranks. Simply substitute the rank for those listed. I will get a list of enlisted's up after the holiday weekend.
