Good Afternoon Region 7 Family:

Your recruitment and retention officer here to remind you that SHORE LEAVE 44 is right around the corner, July 26-28th in Lancaster, PA. New venue + new state = new recruits!

We hope that will be there and help out with our recruitment efforts. It can benefit your chapter as it has done in the past. The table will be set up to recruit on Saturday & Sunday. We need folks to sign up for shifts.


Hope we will see you there!

Today is a great day. Today we commission into our ranks, the Starship USS Mae Jemison, NCC-97007. She is an Odyssey Class starship. This Chapter is based in National Harbor, Maryland, Earth, Sol Sector and is under the command of RADM Dean Rogers.

RADM Rogers, you are hereby cleared to begin deployed chapter operations in your assigned patrol area, with CAPT Christian Savage as your Executive Officer after reporting in to ADM Bob Vosseller at Region 7 Headquarters.
