Well done all!. This will count as an additional awarding on any previous Naval Campaign Ribbons you may have.

Fadm Doane-Awards: First I want to thank FADM Laury for allowing me to give this final award. As it is for an old and loyal MFI member and marine, as a final act to tonights award ceremony I’d like to recall Lt. General Easterly, front and center.

Puzzled but game Lt. General Easterly does so, stopping in front of the FADM and Salutes. The FADM returns the salute and Lt. General Easterly turns about face to te crowd upon FADM’s order.::


I’m not sure what I can say that has not already been said. Over the years multiple members have talked about his generosity in helping other members. His willingness to toil behind the scenes on website work or seemingly thankless Academy projects. His ability to be there whenever possible for advice or even a shoulder to cry on. He’s worked in the Academy, the Sim Fleet, the Maquis Marines. He’s done years of organization wide events like the Labor Day Offensive and other such events that have built a solid sense of es spirit de corps. When real life hit hard it was tougher to get things done but that didn’t mean he didn’t keep trying. Not only does he have the proven dedication of years of work but the heart of what it means to be Maquis. Loyalty, dedication, and integrity are a few of the traits many of us have seen in him over the years. It is for these and many other reasons that he is granted the well-earned rank of General. May his career be long and his felonies undiscovered. Congratulations!

Fadm Doane shakes General Easterly’s hand and pins on the new rank. It is some minutes later before she can speak again due to the deafing cheers coming from the assembled. With a smile she says::

FADM Doane-Awards: Return to your seat, General Easterly.

He returns the smile and salutes. The salute is returned and he returns to his seat.::

She then goes through the ‘Changing of the Podium with FADM Laury and returns to her position::

FADM Lary-IC: Congratulations to General Easterly and all others who have earned awards this year. Remember if you have any nominations feel free to send those along to our Awards department at any time. The work of fan clubs is sometimes difficult so promotions and awards are a few of the ways we like to try to show our appreciation for the hard work you all do. So I hope you will take these awards as the signs of great esteem they are meant. Fair Winds and Following Seas in the coming year, everyone is dismissed to the after party.

After party devolves into Maquis Craziness.
