Since his promotion in January, Kitahashi has participated in 12 competitions around the fleet, earning an Action Medal with Planet Cluster in the process. Participating as much as possible is a great way of making sure our competitions remain lively and vibrant. Kitahashi has also organized 2 competitions of his own, a puzzle competition and a word search, which received 22 entries, thus allowing many other members to also have a chance to participate. Kitahashi is also a regular contributor to many discussions on the Bravo Fleet Discord server, as evidenced by him reaching Level 15; this participation helps keep our community engaged and energized. Also since he was last recognized, Kitahashi stepped up to become the Task Force 72 Executive Officer, a position which has held for over four months now. As TFXO, Kitahashi has helped with activity recording and promoting task force-level events, while also contributing to discussions within Bravo Fleet Command. For these actions, I am pleased to nominate Kitahashi for the Meritorious Service Cross.
