Ladies and Gentlemen of SFSO,
I have worked with the incoming Command staff for STARFLEET. We are going to be in a Departmental Program under the Chief of Staff for the VCS. Once we graduate from this program which they see to be short lived in the program for the SFSO, we will be reporting to probably the VCS.
If you have ventured out to the SFI website and checked staffing under the Office of VCS, SFSO is listed there.
I have been working on getting my staff set and make sure we are ready for this new program. What I need from the Teams is a completed report with the current roster of the team. Please list as follows: Team Leader, Asst. Team Leader, Team Members. I also need the SCC #’s of each person as well as the Expiration Date.
We have 145 members listed in the Database but I do not have reports showing the 145. Please get those rosters into either Aaron Clark, for the Reconnaissance and Intelligence Teams, or Christopher Bayonet, for the S.E.A.L.S. and Ranger Teams.
There are two MACO teams in SFSO at this time. They report to Barry Jackson, who will make sure I receive their reports as well. The two MACO teams are SOU-031 and SOU-119. MACO teams have a specific training schedule that will get a team qualified as MACO if they are reached by the Team Leader. So IF you feel up to the challenge get with Barry Jackson and qualify.
On another note… I would like to see activities of each unit. Just saying you are here is not much. Please list what you are doing as a Team, with the Chapter, or as an individual. I have seen MACO reports where they create and run a mission. I have seen another unit that uses other activities but make them seem to be a mission. A mission could be where you write your own Trek, Laser Tag, Paint Ball, etc. Just let the Support Deputy Director, The Deputy Director to whom your team reports, and myself know before you run the mission. In other words for a mission, plan it out, send in a detailed plan to the above people, and once approved run it as a full mission. You can get with the Deputy Director (Support) if you need a mission form. Other activities can be small missions and does not need approval, but a Full Mission which does get passed up the command needs to be ran with approval. Maybe even getting teams working together to run a mission will help.
If anyone needs an idea, contact me. I will be glad to set up a mission and have it divided out among the teams. If one team fails to do their end of the mission then the whole mission is a failure. I might even set one up that would run every 6 months or so. (The mission would have to be completed by the end of the sixth month). This would be a multi-team mission where each team would need to complete by a specific time frame so the next team can run their portion from there. Let me know what you think about this idea.
As always, I am but an email away, so email me if you have questions but also use your chain of command.
At this time, I will introduce the Staff of SFSO
Director – Fleet Captain TJ Allen
Deputy Director (TacOps) – Brigadier Christopher Bayonet (over the S.E.A.L.S. and Ranger Teams) (Also pulling double duty as my assistant)
Deputy Director (IntelOps) – Captain Aaron Clark (Over the Reconnaissance and Intelligence Teams)
His Reporting Chief is Rear Admiral Pamela Michaud
Deputy Director (Training) – Vice Admiral Glen Diebold
His Certification Officer is Colonel Bill Rowlette
Deputy Director (Support) – Commodore Barry Jackson
Under him is the Newsletter Editor – Brigadier Thomas "Tank" Clark
On that note, Submit articles talking about your team and introducing your team to Tank. I would like to see a featured team in the Secured Frequencies. Tank did real well with the last Secured Frequencies with the featured team being the SOU-033.
We are also revamping the manuals and trying to make them SFSO own manuals. Which means there are changes coming down the pipeline. The first is the Ranks for SFSO follow STARFLEET ranks. The uniform for the top level Class "A" is the Monstor Maroon with a royal blue shoulder strap and royal blue sleeve band. (see the TWOK uniform that Spock wore and change the color of the band and shoulder strap from white to Royal Blue). The easy uniform which is a Class "C" (lower level uniform) is a Charcoal Grey Shirt like the TruSpec Performance Shirt and black pants. The rest of the uniforms in between these is up to the team leader. And remember as Spec Ops we are under the Operations group of a starship like Security are.
Thank you for your service,
TJ Allen, Director, SFSO
