Members of the RF,

Welcome to another fun newsletter! I know that you all wait on these tidbits of joy with baited breath, and so here it is! There's some exciting stuff this month but, as usual, this NL will be short and sweet. As always, please email me with any questions or comments.

Heading up RF news this month is the recent recreation of an RS Starcraft unit. Headed up by LCM Kale Petosky (, the new division is called the "Starcraft Warfare Assault Team," or SWAT for short. As I just recently sent out a fleetwide email on the new division, I won't bother repeating all of their information here. Suffice it to say that, as always, you can email the CO to find out more or to join!
The RF member count now stands at 58. Yay!
Not much going on in the way of other news. For most of you, school has started up and you're no doubt going to be occupied with the adjustment for awhile. Your Fleet CO does not return to school until near the end of this month, so feel free to bother him if you need something.

We have tremendous news about the fleet webpage! Heralded by blasts of trumpets, our beloved RFXO has at last uploaded his own office page! Shocked as you are by this, console yourself with the knowledge that at least the sky is not falling. You can view the glorious office of the Redemption Fleet Executive Officer at In other webpage related updates, I've updated the Divisions page with new member counts and the addition of SWAT at

Today I do have one promotion to issue. I'd like to promote a Division CO who has consistently given his all to his people, who vigilantly guards their interests, and who is always kind enough to keep me informed. The STC simply would not be the same without Jester's calm and moderated hand at the helm, and we owe him quite a bit. Major General Harley Quinn, it is my pleasure to promote you to the rank of Lieutenant General in our club, with all the privileges and respect that such a rank entails. Congratulations! ":)

No reported job openings this month. But I'm pleased to announce that the position with a description of "Get the Fleet CO a drink whenever he asks" has been filled! I'll not announce the lucky officer who took this mighty burden upon his shoulders, because I don't want you all mooching off my Drink Officer. :P

The RF is a great fleet, and we seem to still be growing strongly! I remind you all to email me if you have any questions or suggestions about the running of the fleet. Otherwise, stay alert for future announcements and rest secure in the fact that, whatever happens, the RF will always be on the cutting edge of the Rebel Squadrons!

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