Greetings, Members of the RS. ":)

Welcome to this holiday edition of the State of the Rebel Squadrons address. And the holiday season it is, indeed. Activity has been dipping a little because we have many officers on leave. I wish you all the best during this season and I hope that you will take the opportunity to relax! I also look forward to the beginning of next month when all the pistons in the engine that drives this club will start pounding at full speed again. This SotRS is going to have a slightly different format than before, in that I will be concentrating less on news. HC NewsFlashes and announcements from the individual Executive Offices provide the news, so all I'm going to be doing in this address is quickly summarizing.
From the Internet Office, the RSNL is working and is sent to subscribers only. Also, a suggestion box was added to the IO page so people can make formal suggestions for our continued internet presence.
The RS Executive Officer is on leave right now, and no acting replacement will be named. Any questions that you would normally ask LGN Rahj, please direct to the Fleet Commander.
The Medals Office is still waiting to get a new webpage completed. All the new medals are listed on the database, and are available for awarding following the standard procedure. The Veterans medal images are being redone and will be completed shortly, at which point Veterans medals will begin to be awarded.
In the Ministry of Justice, a new Minister was appointed in the past few weeks. Commander Gavin "Executer" will be VA Bigfoot's partner in the MoJ and is available to help settle disputes or answer questions.
In High Command news, LCM Rave was appointed IBG XO by MGN Slate Mallar. A bylaw revision regarding returning officers was also passed unanimously.
The General Info page on the RS domain has been updated by the Fleet Commander, along with a new section about the fictional origins of RS battlefleet.
In Outer Rim War news, the webpage was completed and the melees continue every saturday. The RS claimed victory this last saturday. Show up to support the club!
Several medals were awarded these past few weeks:
Combat Medal awarded to COL Reaves, GEN Kaz.
Alliance Dagger awarded to GEN Kaz, COL Reaves, LGN Rahj
Eye of the Jedi awarded to MAJ Ares.
Violet Cluster awarded to LCM Sair.
Valiance Combat Citation awarded to GEN Kaz.
The RS medal systems is one of the cooler institutions that we have in this club. It is perfect for rewarding a member for hard work. It fits in nicely with a promotion, or completely separate from a promotion. For all that, I don't see many nominations for medals. With all the new medals added, there is a medal that is appropriate for almost any occasion. So I urge you all to nominate your subordinates and superiors for medals!
Continue to be active, and most importantly, to have fun! That's what this club is all about, after all. And if we forget that, we are going to be lost. Make this club the most fun it can be!

Reach for the stars, and you will find that you can often catch them!
