Vivid has been a key player in 72’s contribution to the Echos of the Tkon fleet action. With 20 Challenge Coins, 6 Duty Ribbons, a Silver Star, and a whopping 82 Service Ribbons showing his dedication! He was Task Force 72’s strongest competitor in the first phase and gained our first Battlefield Promotion, after which he competed a further 14 times.
Additionally, I would be remiss for not mentioning his actions outside of the competition directly. He assisted Borden with the general cheerleading and field leadership in the 72 lounge, providing much of the foil for the raising of competitive spirits. Vivid also has volunteered as Task Force 72’s very first representative to the mentorship program…marking him as the very first mentor Fleet-wide. His efforts have already yielded an Ensign out of the Academy assigned to 72 and I can’t wait to see where they go from here!
For his outstanding participation and leadership by example, I am proud to nominate Vivid for the Legion of Merit!
