Good day to you all, and thank you for joining the 2nd Battalion. Many of you have come here as you were ex-members of the 28te Jager Division, some of you were invited here by friends and some out of pure curiosity. No matter why you came here, you will all be treated with equal respect, have equal opportunities and have the right to a say in what happens within the unit.
Firstly, I'd like to make sure that all members know how to log in to our TeamSpeak 3 server. The IP for the server is: 126.96.36.199:12817 and you are expected to join with your full realism name, to avoid any confusion.
Secondly, our server should be completed within the next few hours. The amount of times I have said this is worrying, yet having little experience with ArmA 2 server hosting made it all quite tough. Rest assured that I am pouring every effort into getting the server up for Saturday, where our first training session will be held!
This brings me quite smoothly onto my third point, training. Our initial training will be held at 1900 GMT, and all of you are expected to attend. However, if you have an issue with attending, please contact either me, Second Lieutenant Holt, or your Company Sergeant Major, Anderson.
Lastly, I'd like to thank certain members for their extended efforts in the early stages of the unit. WO2 Anderson has dedicated many hours to getting the rank pictures, assisting with the website, sorting out the TeamSpeak and generally being there when I needed him.
I'm glad to have back all the old members of the 28te, and glad to see new faces; people who were there after I left, or people who have joined our community for the first time.
