Ladies and Gentlemen
We are still alive and kicking. With the change in CS and the EC, SFSO is still moving forward. We report to the Chief of Staff, VCS.
Now with that being said, we need to get reports turned in on time from all teams. If you are on the roster, we expect to see a report. If you know someone that is on the roster, just give them a friendly nudge to see if they are sending in their reports. For us to survive, we need to get reports and prove that we want the SFSO. I do not want to be posting which units are not reporting but if I have to resort to that then I will. CWO Michael Denman is the new Deputy Director (Operations). He will be on the look out for those not reporting and will inform me.
Remember… unit reports are due to Michael on the 1st of every month.
Now onto something else that is in the works…
We have two ribbons that will start to be issued. There is the Admiral Forrest award for the command staff of SFSO. There is also the Gannett Brooks award for those that complete at least one side of the SFSO Training and have obtained the Doctorate of Special Operations, the Doctorate of Intelligence Operations, and at least the Masters of Military Studies. I am working with the Quartermaster trying to find the ribbons and will post them when we get them. I will have him post the pricing when we have them.
I need to here back from some folks on if we want to have a ribbon for completing at least one of the above SFA degrees. We are also looking into what the other 8 ribbons might be used for.
I am only going to allow for 11 Ribbons to be used and worn on the uniform. We will have an Award Manual after we get all the kinks worked out. With the SFSO, right now I am pushing for getting training done and service to SFSO. I will be looking for other options to.
Now for Charity…
We would like to do some charity work for the Wounded Warrior Project. I would also like to here some other suggestions from other Operatives. From what I have found out from the WWP is they accept donations. Maybe we can start a Walk-a-thon for the WWP and raise money to give to them. Let’s see what ideas and all that we come up with and let’s try to get something going.
That is all for now,
TJ Allen, Director
