Long time no see, people. I hope that everyone's fine and keeping up their quota of dead Chigs? There's a slight change in the newsletter from this month on, which you can read about in Latest News and Updates.

As always, I am pleased to bring you the usual columns (with the exception of From the Quill Pen), filled with recent news, and stuff you can kick back and relax with. For the low-down on the latest fan campaign, again check out Latest News and Updates. Don't forget to take a look at Interstellar Chat Radio as we have something different and hopefully entertaining for your reading pleasure.

Much party streamers and waving of pom-poms goes to Albatross, Peregrine, the 88th Firebirds list, and our much-appreciated source of news: 57th-L, 96th Recon Batallion, and Tactical Dispatch. I would also like to thank the various websites from which I took the pictures for the online version of this newsletter. I couldn't have done it without y'all, guys.

Semper fi!
Captain Yasmin "Garuda" M.
88th Firebirds Squadron

Firebirds Quote of the Month:
"And for the record, I don't have a bad sense of direction. Roads just have a way of changing direction around me." -- Major Sparhawk

The newsletter is published every fortnight. For suggestions and contributions to both the newsletter and mailing list e-mail Garuda. I will forward any message intended for the whole squadron to the mailing list. If you want your message to be seen by the whole squadron, state it clearly and I will put it up on the Bulletin Board column as well. I am also responsible for Communications, so e-mail me if you have any other problems, except those concerning your membership in the 88th, as that falls under Peregrine's wing.
