This is a crew wide award. I set a goal of posting 80 quality logs by the time I have to file my report on 31 July and the crew of Merlin has not only met that goal but have risen very comfortably above it, and in just week since the goal was set. Very well done, I'm proud and excited to be simming with you guys!

USS Merlin, TF72
I am beyond proud to nominate the USS Merlin for the award this month. Once again, they have shown what a crew working together can achieve. Earlier in the month, the Commanding Officer was appointed as Senior Ship Commanding Officer, but that didn’t stop him from posting, and being even more active, taking a great approach to talk to the Commanding Officers in the Task Group to get some ideas flowing and most of the Commanding Officers have really appreciated the extra set of eyes on their website and what they are doing. On the USS Merlin, he challenged his crew to reach 90 “quality” posts over the month, and even with a bandwidth issue and a change of website, they were still able to not just reach that goal (with time to spare), but even that didn’t stop them, reaching 98 posts, and I took the time to read some of those posts, and they are of the best quality, they aren’t just a couple of one-liners to post out to boost the numbers, they are pure quality writing from crewmember after crewmember, and a lot of them are joint posts, showing me that this crew has a sense of family, respect and most importantly; teamwork. They are the epitome of what we should all be looking at for our simulations, and they should all be proud of what they have achieved in four short months that they have been part of Obsidian Fleet! Well done USS Merlin crew!

Walker has been great to have as our Marine Commander. He has demonstrated a very good knowledge of Marine simming, including coming up with a used terms list for our wiki. He has also not played the stereotypical Marine – getting in fights, disrespecting Fleet just because they are Fleet, etc – and has made an outstanding effort to have the Marines be part of the crew rather than just passengers.

(XO Citation) This is one character I am very pleased to have aboard because of his ability to hit the ground running and to keep the ball in play.

(2O Citation) Walker has demonstrated leadership qualities and an intimate knowledge of Marine protocols and procedures. He has also displayed courage under fire and has bonded well with both the other Marines and rest of the crew
