Organizational Annoucement

Today we announce a bit of a change in the Fleet Command Office. We offer our sincerest congratulations and condolences to all parties involved! LLAP and Good Luck!


 

On December 1, 2014 Fleet Commanding Officer Admiral Cody Glenn made the following Fleet Wide Announcement:

“Good morning from the Fleet Command Staff.

When we chose to create this organization, we did so with the understanding that launching a new organization would be, by far, more difficult than simply running a chapter of an existing organization. It would require a hierarchy and a chain of command, so that everyone who wanted to volunteer for a leadership position could carry their own weight, instead of one or two people carrying it all. It would require new rules, regulations, and bylaws in order to work properly. It would also require precedents to be set, so that those who take over positions in the future have a clear knowledge of how things work.

The difficulty in starting an organization from scratch comes from setting those precedents and building a strong foundation that can continue to be built upon. It is my belief that we have accomplished every step… except for one.

Today, a new precedent is set, limiting the Fleet Commanding Officer and Fleet Executive Officer positions to a single consecutive term of two years in office. Those in these positions may only hold the office for one consecutive term. Whereas Michael Tolleson and I officially took these offices on May 29th, 2013, our terms will conclude on May 29th, 2015. At that time, a new Fleet Commanding Officer and Fleet Executive Officer, appointed by the existing Fleet Commanding Officer and Fleet Executive Officer, will take office.”


To follow this, on January 1, 2015, he made the announcement of the two lucky officers who were chosen to begin their training. Please help us welcome and congratulate Commander Nathan Adams from California on his promotion to Fleet Commanding Officer in Training, and to Captain Jenn Russell of Nevada to her promotion to Fleet Executive Officer in Training! We will see you in office effective May 29th!!

The Fleet goes full Riker for November

During the month of November, The 1701st Fleet joins together for an online charity campaign known internationally as Movember.

Movember is a fund-raising charity striving to provide information and awareness for men’s health. As our second annual team grows their beards, we invite you to help support the cause! Our men are proudly participating in No-Shave November as it’s oft called, and our women have drafted a 30 day workout routine, because let’s face it, you don’t want to see them with a beard!

Check out our Fleet Team page here for more information on how you can donate or become involved!

We Added All The Ships!

This week, General Michael Tolleson announced the launch of three new ships to our Fleet! Please join us in congratulating the crews of the:

  • USS Arrowhead, commanded by Geno Younger and Tiffany Fields, of Oklahoma City, OK
  • USS Sam Houston, commanded by Rick Penney and Trevor Chambers, of Ft. Worth, TX
  • USS Chicago, commanded by Jay Hurd and Otilio Puente, of Illinois

Fair winds and following seas, ladies and gents! Congratulations on your new posts, and may your journeys be ever safe and bring good fortune!

Mission: Fleet Patch a Success!

Last November, our Pennsylvania Squadron Commander, Rear Admiral (Lower Half) Zachary McCauley, had the distinct honor of attending the NASA Social MAVEN Tweet-up event at Cape Canaveral. On his journey, he handed a Fleet patch to NASA’s Social Media Director, who promised to pass it on to NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden.

Today RDML McCauley received confirmation that our little shuttle package has reached its destination! Below are an image of the patch in question before it was handed over, and the tweet of delivery confirmation! We are sad to report that we don’t have photographic evidence, but if we here at the Fleet can’t trust the guys from NASA…
