We have an optional ceremony this weekend. Maj.Andrews (Task Force Commander) is pleased to award the Task Force with senior promotions effective immediately.
The rank system forms the backbone of the Task Force structure and it defines a soldier or officer's role and degree of responsibility. Soldiers and Officers have different rank systems. Broadly speaking, officers have more leadership duties. However many Officers start off as soldiers, before gaining their commission.
The following promotions were awarded 13 April 2013
Before battle today we will be conducting a small awards and promotions ceremony on Stratis Island. (Greek: Άι Στράτης)
We have had an amazing start to the 2013, becoming the largest, premium ARMA 3 Alpha community in the world. We have some amazing deployments planned for this year, taking Reality Gaming and our great community to a whole new level.
Reality Gaming has a long rich hstory conducting these events:
2010 - CAMP REALITY
2010 - The Lost Tapes
2011 - TRAINING IN THE HEAT
2012 - FORT BENNING (CAMP REALITY 2.0)
2013 - TBC
Fort Benning (Camp Reality) Training ground has now been fully decommissioned as we move into ARMA 3.
The 1st Rifles Platoon and Army Air Corps will be conducting a deployment ceremony at 5 p.m. Sunday outside platoon headquarters on Stratis Island.
This will be the Tasks Force's first official ARMA 3 Ceremony; following previous campaigns we have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan several times. Beginning in June 2007, Reality Gaming served a year in Iran and Iraq. In June 2008, the Task Force conducted operations in Afghanistan and the Helmand Province, Baghdad, Najaf, and Baqubah before returning to Camp Reality (previously Fort Benning) in September 2009.
From July 2010 through July 2011, 1st Rifles Platoon Soldiers were stationed at locations throughout Diyala Province.
The Infantry platoon, 1st Rifles, or “GAMBLER,” was Reality Gamings first active platoon sized division. Beginning in May 2012, approx 40 Soldiers from the 1st Rifles were deployed to Southern Lingor to conduct counter-insurgency operations.
Soldiers worked alongside Lignor national security forces (operation Wild Snake) toward the goal of transitioning to where local friendly forces took the lead.
We like to take the time to remember out history, note our success and set goals for the future. I hope you can all join us.
