General Orders For Enlisted Personnel

  • All Marines aboard the Raven will memorize the Basic General Orders For Enlisted Personnel

  • -To take charge of this post and all BFC property in view

  • -To walk my post in a military manner, keeping always on the alert and observing everything that takes place within sight or hearing.

  • -To report all violations of orders I am instructed to enforce.

  • -To repeat all calls from posts more distant from the guardhouse than my own. IE: in the event of a COMM breakdown, all orders must be yelled or verbally given to the next sentry no matter the distance from the next post and so on...until the entire unit knows the same order issued.

  • -To quit my post only when properly relieved.

  • -To receive, obey and pass on to the sentry who relieves me all orders from the Executive Officer, Detachment commander, and officers, both commissioned and non-commissioned, of the guard only.

  • -To talk to no one except in the line of duty.

  • -To give the alarm in case of fire or disorder.

  • -To call the MarDet Commander or the XO in any case not covered by instructions.

  • -To salute all officers and all colors and standards not cased.

  • -To be especially watchful at all times, especially wartime, and to challenge all persons on or near my post and to allow no one to pass without proper authority


Spec Ops

Special Operations teams are highly trained Marines that are capable of executing a strike or recovery mission on very short notice, or can plan and execute a lengthy and very detailed operation given our needs and current situation. Each team will consist of six to eight members. There will be a first strike team that will lead ground assaults and board other ships. There will be a counter-terror team who will keep our ship from being boarded and ensure the safety of key personnel. There will be a hostage and recovery team. While each of these teams performs a different task, there are similarities in the men and women who perform them. SpecOps members must be fearless, agile, intelligent, and extremely proficient in their skills. Marines chosen for SpecOps will still work regular rotations at every position, and should your expertise be needed immediately, there will be a backup team to take your post.
