Log Entry: Stardate 67031.5, Rear Admiral Carl Stark recording. The members of the Seventh Fleet Council gathered together to discuss what will be happening with the Seventh Fleet for the next three months and beyond. One of the many discussions that we had tonight was the advancement of Commander Roger Taylor to the rank of Captain. We are proud to announce that this proposal was accepted and Captain Taylor was awarded his rank. This also means that the chapter-in-training, PCU Essex, will now become a fully active chapter, the USS Essex. The details on the launch ceremony will be announced soon. Well done Captain Taylor and well done to the crew of the USS Essex. Tally Ho
Log Entry: Stardate 67022.2 Rear Admiral Carl Stark recording Last month at our Seventh Fleet Admiral’s Banquet, a lot of our members talked about the challenges they would be facing in 2014. For myself, I am returning to school with Western Governors University. I know that some of you are already on the road to losing weight (good job) and a lot of you want to gain a Command Grade rank (Lt. Commander or Commander). So the question I would like to ask is, what is your challenge for 2014? How do you plan to accomplish this challenge? What help can we provide to get you past this challenge? I’d love to hear your ideas.
