After careful consideration I have decided not to run for RLSC detachment Commander for another term. Events in my personal life have made it necessary to take a step back. I just did not want the detachment to suffer because of my inability to focus on it 100%

RLSC was the first detachment in the Rebel Legion. I feel it is still the best one. I have been part of detachment command for the past 9 or 10 years, starting off as Deck officer and moving up to Detachment Executive Officer under Jon Paulson and then Detachment Commander for the past two years. I am still going to be around for questions, and will assist the detachment whenever I can.

I appreciate Naglium (Gordon Gravelese) for serving as the Detachment Quartermaster and making sure we had good swag, and Blue Banshee Leader (Alex Buirch) for serving as my Detachment Executive officer. Hopefully you will continue serving the Detachment in the future.

To all of the many pilots in the detachment, you are the finest bunch I have ever had the honor to serve with, have fun with, and raise the occasional drink with. I'm certain you'll continue to make me proud.


Thank You
JediXXL (Gil Guemes) Jek Porkins

Gil - if anyone understands the pressure this job puts on your personal and professional life, it's me. It's not all glory and fame ... actually, there's no glory and fame, just a lot of hard work.

I had no reservations about turning over the Big Cockpit to you when I left, and you did me proud sir. THANK YOU for your time, service and leadership of this most excellent of Detachments. You can leave with your helmet held high.

Fly Casual General and may TIEs be forever in your sights!

Thank you for your service in the Rebel Legion. I think you've done a fine job as RLSC Commanding Officer and I believe that you've helped the place grow and change it for the better. And I consider myself lucky to have been able to have served under you. If I am fortunate enough to take the reigns of this detachment I hope that I can lead the RLSC even half as well and skillfully as you did.

Positions like CO aren't one you take because it's going to give you any sort of fame, glory or power, like Jon said, because none of that exists in the position, and even I know that too, it's a position you take because you love the detachment, because you love being a part of what it is and what it stands for, and you strive to bring the community together and make a peaceful, pleasant place. To hold that position it takes a lot of heart and a lot of commitment, of which you had both in enormous quantities, but sometimes life can get in the way of the latter and that's totally understandable.

Good luck to you. You'll always be CO to me! Smile

Thanks everyone, I appreciate your kind words. It's time to move on to other things... Especially helping out charities, playing Plastic Spaceman, and just having fun trooping with my friends. #OldTimeTrooping
