I am sure that the Troops of The Old Guard will do an especially fine job for the Lt’s services. Wouldn’t surprise me if TAH has a good representation there. Going by some of the commenting posts, seems as if we have a number sorta close by. Would like to be there myself.

Thanks for the update Hondo.


Fair winds and following seas, LT. Lurcott.
