Lastest Press Release from the Brass

News Update: Grand Army of the Republic (G.A.R.) Unveils New AwardSubject: Combat Briefing Badge (CBB)

Recognizing the need for an award for troops assigned to headquarters units during combat operations, the G.A.R. today announced the approval of the Combat Briefing Badge, or CBB.

"People don't realize that being in a major headquarters can be just as stressful as going on patrols or convoys," said Republic Naval Commander Dick Hertz. "When you're briefing that many General Officers, your career can end in a heartbeat. And it can happen to anyone at any time, not just combat arms soldiers."

G.A.R. statistics note that briefing personnel are more likely to suffer career-ending incidents in rear areas than Clone Troopers in the field. "This just reflects that reality," said G.A.R. spokesman Major Paynein Theash. “On the plus side,” Major Theash continued, “at least we don’t have any general who kill people who bring them bad news.”

The award ranks in precedence below the CIB and CAB, but above the EIB and PowerPoint Ranger tab.

The criteria for the award is still under discussion, but preliminary guidance authorizes the award for 30 days of continuous briefings of officers at least two grades higher than the briefer without incident while serving in a theater of operations in which the awardee is eligible for hostile fire and hazardous duty pay.

I agree with cooltopten. It does look like an exam badge, but nonetheless it was time someone took the initiative to reward those men and women.

F*ck man!

Where are you?

Stormtroopers are never reliable.

Absolute Space-Junk.

If you had to punch out a cardassian after he stole your mouse during an unexpected assault on your headquarters, then fine; you've earned the award.

If you had to work out a presentation on tractor beams and it made you cry a little bit; go home.

Get discharged.
