    Col Penny
    Attention All Hands,
     
    Given I have no had half the time I expected to have, and what effort I am able to focus here must be focused on the Main Unit, I have gone ahead and found a new HQ element for the Cadet Corps, and the timing could not be better.
     
    Effective immediately:
     
    Sgt Riggenti will be taking the role of Senior Cadet Corps Instructor. Mr. Riggenti has been with the Cadet Corps for a long time now as Basic Training Instructor, and assisted/replaced me as Task Force Commander for their recent FTX's. He has great vision on what the Cadet Corps is intended to do and needs to do to be successful.
     
    LCpl Siddiqui, newly transferred from the Cadet Corps, will be taking the role of Cadet Corps Instructor. Mr. Siddiqui has been with the Cadet Corps very nearly since the beginning, and has suffered through all its throes of membership, and has been leading it by merit of himself as its squad leader for some time now. He knows the Cadets and its program inside and out, and is looking forward to his next step of making the Cadet Corps successful.
     
    Congratulations, gentlemen. I look forward to working with you.

    Attention All Hands,
     
    This Sunday (06MAY18) we will be attempting a new method to launch the Task Force servers. Previously we have always started the mission and had Zeus setting up while people join in progress. Instead we will be holding the server at the role selection screen, loading everyone in (using normal joining scheme), and then starting the mission with everyone in their role and at the screen. This new method does not get rid of this order.
     
    Zeus is familiar with this methodology, all most personnel need to know is that you will join the role selection screen and select your role, then wait.

    Attention All Hands,
     
    We are adding a new article to the Disciplinary Articles of the Unit Policy Manual:
     
    10-7.11 Pattern of Misconduct
    Any member that commits repeated violations of policies in which each violation by themselves only amount to minor disciplinary action; however, the violations together show a pattern of misconduct.  
     
    Simply put: There have been identified previous issues of individuals displaying regular conduct of detrimental activity which individually do not fall under any major violation or require heavy steps; however when put together they create a picture of a member who is simply here to disrupt the activities of others. In the past we have been forced to ignore this or simply file the issues under an umbrella of 'General Article'. This was insufficient. This new article should make it possible for the Unit and subordinate commands to take steps to protect their sections and the Unit as a whole more effectively.

    Attention All Hands,
     
    For some time now we have neglected the role of the Unit Counselors, leaving them sitting empty. We are now taking effort, by prompting of 1stLt Graff, to revitalize the program and get it effective again. Thus we are taking applications for:
     
    1x Unit Counselor to represent ACE
    2x Unit Counselors to represent the Supporting Assets (AAVs, Tanks, LED, MSOT)
     
    A Unit Counselor can be summarized as a couple things.. they are experienced and well-respected members of the unit to whom the members of the section(s) they represent can approach about issues with Command Staff or their Chain of Command (it's meant to complement the Chain of Command, however, not replace it), guidance for one's 'career' within the Unit (S-Shop or primary billet opportunities), and an assistant representative for disciplinary actions (they are not LAWYERS, but they can accompany a member to a Disciplinary Hearing to hear the issues and recommend courses of action for that member).
     
    If you would like to apply to be a Unit Counselor you must send an application to @Col Penny, @LtCol M. Alexander, @SgtMaj Hoagland, and @1stLt Graff detailing why you should be selected to be a Unit Counselor, why you want to be a Unit Counselor, and at least two recommendations from members of the section you are going to be representing (to be clear.. these representatives must come from that section; a GCE member cannot represent ACE, for instance).
     
    Any questions regarding the role of counselors may be directed to any of those four individuals directly. @1stLt Graff as the current sole Counselor, and previous Senior Counselor, will have the most information.
     
    -Col Penny
    MEU CO
     

    Col Penny
    Attention All Hands,
     
    Thanks to the efforts of @LCpl Bass our Unit Squad XML script has been fixed and is now back in action. Command and S-1 will be uploading a new version of this XML every operational weekend Saturday (the morning of LED operations). As a reminder for those of you who may not know: The Squad XML is considered a part of your uniform and is required for all operations.
     
    This means:
     
    If you still have the old ArmA 3 Units as your 'display' XML it should be removed. You can still remain a part of the group (it's still used for recruitment purposes) but it is not to be used for display for operations. It is easy to identify: The Squad XML will display a tag of '15th MEU(SOC)' while Units will display '15th MEU'. Also the Squad XML will not show a unit patch, while the Units will display the subdued 15th logo. Your in-game name should display the rank you are currently. DO NOT update this rank after promotions during platoon briefing, before the promotions are officially posted. This will cause your XML to break, spout a server RPT error, and cause you to be out of uniform.  
    E-1s and SNAs may occasionally notice their name not make it on the XML. This will not be common, but it is a possibility. All other grades have zero excuse. If you believe your XML may not be working contact S-1 Personnel.
     
    Beginning the first deployment operation (06MAY18) any personnel found to be out of uniform with their XML will be subject to points removal by NJP. This is a very simple thing to rectify that goes a long way to displaying our unit pride and looking professional. Take responsibility for your in-game 'uniform' in the same manner you do everything else.
