Department of the Pacific, Changing of the Guard
« on: May 18, 2006, 11:09:27 am »
 This is a letter sent to US Scout as of this morn. I wish y'all much luck in this and will check back fom time to time.

General,
I feel that Captain Thorne is doing a wonderfull job at this time. I also feel that at this time maybe it is best for the Department and the GAF in general that he be given the command of the Department. I have been banging my head against a wall out here for years, and with everything going on right now in my AO, I think that it is for the best that I step down.
So, as of 09:01, Thursday May 18 in the year of our lord 2006, do hereby surrender my command of this department to the HQ staff for you to appoint a commander.

Good Luck,
Colonel J.M. Rodriguez II
GAF Commander, Department of the Pacific,

I have accepted Bvt Col El Confederado's resignation as Commander of the Department of the Pacific.  Below is my response to his resignation. 


Bvt Colonel El Confederado,
 
I'm sorry to hear that your personal situation is such at present that you are unable to carry on with your duties as Commander of the Department of the Pacific.  You contributed greatly to the growth and success of the Department, especially in the absence of your own Department Commander back in the beginning days.  For that I thank you and extend my best wishes that you will soon be able to rejoin the GAF in a more active capacity in the near future.
 
I appreciate that you are placing the well being of the GAF and the Department of the Pacific ahead of yourself in making this difficult decision.  This is a commendable action on your part.
 
As a former Department Commander and in respect for all the time and hard work you dedicated to the GAF, you are authorized to continue to attach the the rank of "Brevet Colonel, Retired, GAF" should you wish to do so.

Bvt Colonel El Confederado was one of our most active members and I'm sure its only his current personal situation that restricts him from being a more active participant now.  When Bvt Col Bean Bandit was unable to perform the duties of Commander of the Department, El Confederado stepped up and continued to move the Department ahead, first in a temporary capacity and later when promoted to Commander of the Department.  The Department of the Pacific would not be as large as it is now without his enthusiasm and hard work.  He is to be commended.

I know that he is not leaving the GAF, but merely stepping down and turning over the Department to someone with time and energy.  This true selflessness and dedication to the GAF.
