    Attention All Hands,
     
    After two years of faithful service at the highest level, Sergeant Major Masters has decided he would like to move on from the position, and will be moving to command the Cadet Corps. We thank him for his service, and look forward to continuing our working relationship in his new position, and wish him well.
     
    This does, however, leave the position of the Unit Sergeant Major available.
     
    Effective immediate, First Sergeant Hoagland will be assuming the billet of Sergeant Major, 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit (SOC), Realism Unit, as the Unit's 8th Sergeant Major. As an experienced and dedicated infantryman and company command member, 1stSgt Hoagland will bring new life into squishing little Lance Corporals into dust, to which we welcome him with open arms.
     
    Congratulations 1stSgt, welcome to the team.

    Attention All Hands,
     
    Captain K. White has decided to return to the ground, and will be vacating the post of Cadet Corps Commanding Officer. As the first commander of the Cadet Corps, we are ever grateful for the dedication and professionalism he infused into the position, and to the Cadet Corps himself. For that service we thank him, and welcome him back to the dirty boots.
     
    Taking over for him, Sergeant Major Masters has decided he has been aloft long enough, and will be moving from the position of Sergeant Major, 15th MEU to the Cadet Corps Commander position. He will be re-ranked to Master Gunnery Sergeant. The position of Cadet Corps Commander will be renamed to Senior Cadet Corps Instructor (SCCI) and may be filled by a Senior NCO or Officer, while the position of Cadet Corps SNOIC will be renamed to Cadet Corps Instructor (CCI) and may be filled by an NCO of Officer junior to the SCCI.
     
    Congratulations gentlemen, and good luck!
     
    These changes are effective 02OCT17.

    As promised, here are the additional changes:
     
    Gunnery Sergeant Astope has decided to finally hang up his spurs as well, after years of dedicated service to the unit. He will be missed, and we thank him for everything he's done and wish him well in his future endeavors.
     
    Replacing him, Second Lieutenant Frey will be returning to the Senior NCO Corps and taking over the position of Company Gunnery Sergeant.
     
    First Lieutenant Karelia has decided to move on from the life of an infantryman and will be taking over the recently vacated Platoon Commander position for 2nd Platoon, Delta Company (Titan).
     
    Taking Mr. Karelia's spot, we welcome Staff Sergeant N. J. Frost to the Officer Corps and the infantry. He will be taking the position of Platoon Commander, 1st Platoon, India Company (Archer 1) as a Second Lieutenant (in Training).
     
    With First Sergeant Hoagland leaving the First Sergeant Position, Mr. Frey will be immediately promoted the position of First Sergeant, India Company and will be returning to the Senior NCO Corps as a First Sergeant.
     
    These changes are all effective 02OCT17. Congratulations gentlemen, and good luck!

    Attention All Hands,
     
    Recently Captain Gaden notified us of his intention to finally retire from the Unit. This is unfortunate, and we are very sad to see such a celebrated and great company commander leave us. But personal pursuits must be but above all else, and we wish Captain Gaden all the best in his future life endeavors. Fair winds, Captain.
     
    However we continue on. Thus it is with pleasure we announce that First Lieutenant J. Murphy will be stepping in to fill the shoes of Commanding Officer, India Company. Stepping in as his Executive Officer will be Staff Sergeant Graff, whom will be transferring back from his tour as Force Reconnaissance as a First Lieutenant.
     
    These changes are effective immediately. Good luck gentlemen, and welcome.
     
    This topic will be maintained for future additional changes coming very soon.

    Col Penny
    Attention All Hands,
     
    There was some apparent confusion regarding the last TFAR update, as well as some changes to the way it operates with Teamspeak. These are, most likely, what resulted in last night's issues of comms dropping.
     
    So. In clear black and white:
     
    The only authorized version of TFAR is:
    TFAR 1.0245
     
    Newly effective, the only authorized version of Teamspeak is:
    Teamspeak 3.1.4.2 (32-bit)
    Teamspeak 3.1.4.2 (64-bit)
     
    Updates to Teamspeak, even minor updates, are no longer authorized until further notice.
     
    Everyone must fix these, immediately. You need it fixed before the next operation. That gives you 3 weeks. There is no excuse to not have this done. Anyone out of sync with these orders will be subject to disciplinary action, as the failure to correct this on even one person will result in the same issues as last night.
