It is with the utmost pleasure that I issue the promotion of Mr Paul Tutty to the grade of Major and welcome him onto USECs newly established board of directors, UCOM.
MAJ Tutty has a decade of service with USEC, but has been with it throughout its entire 13 year history in one capacity or another. Through this time he has held every position imaginable, and is without question the most ideal member to join Unity Command.
MAJ Tutty has agreed to take on the roles of Director of Recruiting and the newly created role of Director of Systems, where he will be responsible for all of USEC’s digital assets, upon which we rely so heavily.
Paul is also USECs first recipient of the Unity Medal, the most prestigious honour which can be bestowed upon a USEC member, of which only five have been awarded in our 13 year history. The citation accompanying that medal speaks volumes about Paul’s dedication to USEC, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to welcome him to the team.
Congratulations Major Tutty! I look forward to working with you once again!

4 Oct 2016 Zulu
Paul "chalky" White Awarded the Force Cross On September 25th, 2016, during mission #1409 (Operation Heron), Major Paul “Chalky” White went above and beyond the call of duty in his role as squad leader of Lancer 1-2.
Tasked with eliminating two NLF Scud missile emplacements, Lancer deployed via air and proceeded on foot to the presumed location of the first launcher. Major Whites squad secured an enemy-held village while Lancer 1-1 searched the nearby area for Scuds. Once the first Scud was located, Lancer 1-2 pushed into enemy territory towards it.
Major White split his squad into a base of fire and attack element. Under the cover fire of Pvt-4 Darian “Chubs” Colsons SAW, Major White and his attack team pushed up to a ruined wall next to the Scud launcher. Major White instructed his team to prep grenades and toss them over the wall, eliminating a large number of the enemys defenses in one swift blow. The squad swiftly mopped up the remainder of the enemys defenses, eliminated the Scud launcher and rendered a number of hostile vehicle assets unusable.
Low on supplies, Major White and his squad proceeded deeper into enemy territory under sniper fire. Holding up close to a village, Major White again surveyed the area, hoping to pinpoint the location of the second Scud. Major Whites squad was spotted and took contact, but not before Major White was able to personally locate the second Scud, hidden away in the village. As the squad was taking accurate fire out in the open, Major White instructed his team to rapidly withdraw into a nearby barn. Enroute to the barn, Pvt-1 Alex “China” Wilson was shot and killed while engaging the enemy.
The rest of the squad pushed into the barn and under Major Whites guidance, dug in to wait for reinforcements. Enemy infantry attempted to breach the barn repeatedly over the next 45 minutes, and a hostile BTR was patrolling the village around them. Supplies were running critically low, as Pvt-1 Wilson had been killed holding most of Pvt-4 Colsons SAW ammunition. Major White remained calm and level-headed however, and more than once stepped out of the barn with enemy infantry within melee distance to gather information about the enemys strength and position, as well as to throw hand grenades to stem their advance on the barn.
Throughout the siege, Major White coordinated the sharing of what little supplies the squad had left, and was constantly informing his squadmates about changes to the situation, enemy positions and his own plans. He was also in regular radio contact with Wolfpack and other USEC assets, both calling for reinforcements and keeping his team informed on their ETA. A lesser squad leader may have panicked, or chosen to take on a more imperative leadership role under pressure, but Major White remained calm and democratic, despite being under near constant fire.
Major White had the safety of his squad foremost in his mind during the engagement, and covered the only entrance to the barn almost non-stop, and was responsible for personally eliminating a large number of the enemys breaching forces. As the siege wore on, Major White was forced to make the tough call of instructing squad members to abandon their kit in favour of Russian AKs, for which ammunition was plentiful, thanks to the repeated unsuccessful breaches by enemy forces.
When reinforcements finally did arrive, Major White gathered up a large number of enemy smoke grenades, creating a massive smokescreen under which the ragtag element could withdraw. Unfortunately, CPL Bryn “Wedge” Walker was critically wounded during this withdrawal. Major White stabilised him under the cover of his squadmates, picked him up and personally carried him over 1 kilometre under fire to where he could receive further treatment.
During the 45 minute siege, Lancer 1-2 killed or wounded over 60 enemy combatants.
Due to his heroism, level-headedness and leadership in a seemingly hopeless situation and effectiveness as an infantryman, I hereby nominate Major White for the Force Cross. There is no doubt in my mind that without his contribution, not one member of Lancer 1-2 would have made it out of that barn outside of a body bag.
