About Us

What is the Third Brigade, SFMC?

The Third Brigade is the STARFLEET Marine Corps arm of STARFLEET Region 3 and encompasses the states of Texas and Louisiana. Our members come from all walks of life and ages. We all have one basic thing in common, a love of Star Trek. Our members do more than meet and talk about Star Trek. The Marine Strike Groups (MSGs) are active in the support of charity. We believe that time is our most valuable gift, so we donate our time to help charitable organizations. We conduct fund-raisers and volunteer our services to help our community. The 3rd Brigade has several Marine Strike Groups that encompass the ideals and principles of STARFLEET and the STARFLEET Marines. For more information on the 3rd Brigade or STARFLEET Marine Corps, please feel free to contact any of the Brigade Staff or look through the STARFLEET Marine Corps web site. If you would like to add a Marine Strike Group on your ship, please feel free to contact our Brigade OIC.

HQ STAFF

The Brigade staff is in place to facilitate the organization and enjoyment of all members of Third Brigade, and conduct the day-to-day operations of the Third Brigade. In addition the Brigade staff will develop policies and procedures that are deemed necessary by the Third Brigade, the SFMC and SFI. The senior staff [BDE Officer-In-Charge (OIC), BDE Deputy Officer-In-Charge (DOIC), the Chief Of Staff (if there is one), BDE Sergeant Major (BDE SGM), S1, S2, S3, S4, S6, Finance Manager (FM), and BN OICs] is required to submit articles for the bi-monthly Cry Havoc! Newsletter, detailing the activities and updates of their work. Brigade Staff shall utilize the brigade staff e-mail list to coordinate their activities, and monitor that list for guidance and instructions from the Brigade OIC. All Brigade Staff must be readily reachable through e-mail, phone, and online meeting tools (as directed by the BDE OIC). All Brigade staff members are appointed by the Brigade OIC and serve at the OIC's pleasure.

BGN Jeremy Carsten

Brigade Officer in Charge
In accordance with SFMC Policy manual, Section 3.06, page 18, the Brigade OIC is appointed by, and serves at the pleasure of Commander, Forces Command (COFORCECOM). Brigade OICs are in position to make the flow of information from the single Marine to the Commandant work smoothly. Therefore, it is the primary duty of the Brigade OIC to collect and compile the information included in the Unit reports. The Brigade OIC appoints Battalion (BN) OICs and all staff as needed. The Brigade OIC should collect the reports either from the MSG OICs or the BN OICs and edit and compile the information into the proper format for the Brigade report. Brigade Reports are due to COFORCECOM by the 21st of each even numbered month (February, April, June, August, October and December). It is recommended that the online report form be used to file reports for all reporting levels, but other methods will be accepted as long as the COFORCECOM has been informed of the desire to use alternate methods and has agreed.

MGN Thomas Clark

Brigade Deputy Officer in Charge
The Brigade DOIC is a backup to the OIC, and should be kept informed as to the running of the Brigade. If for any reason the OIC is unable to perform the duties assigned to the position, the DOIC should be prepared to step in to ensure the smooth running of the Brigade. The DOIC should receive copies of all reports and decisions of the OIC. If the OIC resigns or for another reason is no longer able to perform the duties of the office, the DOIC may be asked by COFORCECOM to step in as Acting OIC until such time as the office of OIC can be filled. The DOIC may submit an application for OIC if he so desires, but will not necessarily be selected to fill the position permanently
