    Mantak had volunteered to be the auto rifle for the squad. When we capped the first flag he found a position to cover and after a while traded shots with a BRDM. With the cap of the flag we moved to hilltop estate where our teammates needed help. When we took control of the estate he set his PKM up to hold off the following assault. After a long firefight there our squad and rally was wiped out. Mantak had been able to hold off the enemy almost alone for a few minutes until he was killed. On our way back to the original flag to defend it the enemy had taken over the area and with the help of Mantak's cover we started to push them back. After 15 minutes of fighting for the flag and many enemy deaths due to Mantak and friendlies alive because of him we started to lose the flag.

    With all of our spawns out we had to respawn at village and defend there. We made our way up to the eastern hills where Mantak found a great position for overwatch on the west and north hills. With enemies assaulting us from the West and North he was constantly changing positions yet still able to provide great support. As we were slowly worn away Mantak was able to cover as we fell back and from our new position he continued to defend the village flag. With the chechnyans swarming the area we weren't able to hold them back and the game ended. Mantak finished the game with almost have the squad's kills with 30 of them and only a fifth of our deaths. He always followed my orders and did his job almost perfectly. For his excellent job supporting my squad is why I am nominating him for the Distinguished Support ribbon.





    Who?
    Name: Soupy_Norman

    Recommended Award: Distinguished armour

    Game/Server: Project reality

    Place and Time: Battle for Quinling, Chinese side, password night 04/10, 21.00 GMT

    Nomination: I would like to nominate Soupy_Norman for the distinguished armour ribbon for his excellent skills as driver of my tank during the password night on the Chinese side. The other team was extremely well coordinated; they even had a group planning session before the round started, and there was a lot of moaning about how we were going to lose so badly. Soupy_Norman was, however, unaffected by this, and just got on with the job. We proceeded up to the village objective, intending to intercept any armour trying to cross the bridge to the NE of the village, and were soon met by the scary sight of the entire enemy team's armour and infantry in a coordinated column. He quickly moved us up to engage them over the hilltop overlooking the village. His skill at coordinating with the gunner allowed us to move up,locate a target, fire, pull back and repeat quickly, meaning that we stayed alive, while the other of our team's two tanks died around us. He then decided (probably a wise move) that we needed to relocate, so we moved undetected north around them in a flanking movement. He put us in a position where we were able to engage their heavy armour and supporting infantry from behind, destroying a challenger and a squad of infantry. At that point the enemy called in air support, as a JDAM from the eurofighter exploded right next to us, severely damaging and tracking our vehicle. He quickly jumped out, fetched a nearby logistic truck and started repairing us. A squad of nearby enemy infantry began to move in on us, and we both put up a desperate last stand to protect the tank, mowing down infantry running up to throw incendiary grenades with my Co-ax and his 50.. Unfortunately, one of them made it, and we were so badly damaged by the bomb that we were destroyed by one grenade.
    With Soupy_Norman's exemplary communication and skill at driving, we were able to wreak havoc almost single handedly on an entire column of enemy armour, killing 2 APCs, 1 Tank, ~10 infantry and 2 CO trucks, amounting to about 50 tickets,and delaying their advance across the bridge, buying time for our team's infantry to capture the village and eventually move on to neutralize their main flag.

    |TGXV|Viking

    What?
    Distinguished Squad Leader

    Where?
    Game: PR
    Location: Operation Archer

    When?
    10-07-09

    I would like to nominate |TGXV|Viking for his outstanding leadership of his sneaky squad today. In the beginning of the round Viking was a commander and spotted the insurgent cache with a UAV. The cache was located in a tough spot for the US forces to get so we lost a lot of tickets on that cache. After that Viking himself walked into the village alone and took out that cache. Me and another guy joined his squad. 3 of us found another undiscovered cache and Viking was the one to take it out. He called mortars on another cache that was found by CO. After 2.5 hrs our squad had destroyed 7 out of 8 caches. At the end US had still lost with 2 caches remaining to destroy but our squad did outstanding and Viking was the one leading us to it.

    Battle for Quinling, PR Server

    Recommended Award: Distinguished Defense

    The Battle For Quinling was an armor and aircraft-dominated game, with only two full infantry squads, 6 armor pieces, and multiple aircraft. I was fortunate enough to be the squad leader for the five players stated above. We started out in an armor column, sitting in the back of an APC that was third in line behind two tanks.


    Our armor convoy made our way to the Village flag via the road to the North, however the enemy had secured the area before we arrived and had prepared an ambush. Our APC was the first hit, and we all barely made it out alive before it exploded. As we found ourselves in the middle of exploding tank shells and bodies we made our way to a hill and some cover. Miraculously our squad survived the ambush, while most of our armor and infantry were completely destroyed and the survivors had retreated to the North. We alone had made it into the village under heavy enemy fire and had secured the area.

    While the village was secure for the time being, however, the enemy had control of the northern and western hills, effectively surrounding us and cutting us off from the team. These five gentlemen fought hard against multiple enemies, with no where to respawn if our rally went down they pushed back multiple enemy attacks from air, sea (from an aquatic APC) and land. Eventually another squad joined us and we managed to secure a firebase, but the enemy still persisted. On more than one occasion we were the only troops on the flag, our friendlies having been pushed back. Also, more than once we found ourselves down to one man, only to have him rambo his way to a medic kit and revive us all to fight again.

    After the rest of the team had secured Coal Mine we caught a helicopter to FOB, however that was shot down and we barely escaped alive before it exploded. With no support save the downed choppers pilot and copilot we held the hill for nearly ten minutes against armor and infantry targets until reinforcements arrived.

    Through the awesome teamwork, tactics, and skill exhibited by these players we never once lost our foothold on Village in the two-plus hours we were stationed there. We went from nearly getting capped out (at one point we had lost all flags) to keeping Village secure so our team could capture Coal Mine.

    Miraculously I never died during the 2+ hours we played, not because of my skill but because every time I went down one of my squad mates was there with a medic kit, ready to revive. I have never seen such teamwork in a random group such as this before, and they definitely deserve the Distinguished Defense Ribbon for their efforts.





    Who?
    TG Forum name: GoreZiad

    What?
    Support Specialist - Class I

    Where?
    Muttrah City Internal Scrim, October 24, 2009

    During the Muttrah City Internal Scrim, GoreZiad was an exceptional support player in my squad, primarily the “man with the iron arm” operating the specialist slot. GoreZiad was tasked from the beginning to be the “rope” for our MEC squad. He took the position with no hesitation, knowing that for the next 3+ hours he would be in a support role for the rest of the squad.

    GoreZiad roped us all the way up to the 3rd objective by way of the back yards, never missing a target or causing a delay in our progress. He paired with Superfast to loft him to buildings 2 times to destroy both USA Bradleys with the HAT kit, helping to maneuver our HAT to the best location for both kills without detection.

    We ground on for over 3 hours, and GoreZiad always had the rope ready. He never complained, never changed kit and was always in the right place at the right time for the squad. Our squad spent about 90% of the round on the roofs, mostly because we could, and because he was always there to support us.

    I know it is not a nomination like “he killed 50 people in 4 minutes”, but for a first ribbon, and being an internal scrim, I think he deserves this support ribbon. It is tough for a relatively new PR player to stick out over 3 hours in an internal scrim in this role, and he was great at it. I was most impressed in the selfless dedication to the squad, all the way to the bitter end in a tough, tough fight.

    I hope you will support this ribbon for GoreZiad, as he was a dependable, reliable, SUPPORTIVE team member in my squad that I will not soon forget. He is also ribbonless, although I see he has a good reputation for game play and TG spirit.




    For all the following Valorius Unit Awards

    Kashan Desert Bunkers are notorious areas for infantry Close Quarter Battles. Most are settled in one volley from a team to another - however when a squad is able to use superior communication, hearing, twitch, and tactics to successfully hold off the enemy infantry for extended periods is something I take a lot of pride in. Beginning at North bunkers for an hour of the round in conjunction with "6th INF 2" lead by |TG-6th|Google, both squads eventually moved to South Bunkers. Google's squad was wiped out after about 30 minutes, but we remained in position, with no backup, supplies, or any reinforcement at all for an entire hour. . .

    The bunkers are large, rectangular, hard structures impenetrable to most weapons. A large bay door is in the front of the building, leading to the control room, and the front stairs. The rooftop has 2 points of entry - back stairs and bathroom ventilation. The only "safe" room is the locker room.

    1 man covers the bathroom vent.
    1 man covers the "Control room" doorway
    1 man covers the front stairs.
    1 man covers the back stairs.

    The persons covering the control room doorway and the front stairs create a tight crossfire and stand on opposite sides of a doorway. Communication is crucial - when one reloads or is wounded, the other must cover both sectors.

    The backstairs are a prime target for grenades, often wounding the person covering them. This makes the medic's job crucial.

    The medics must priortize threats, and respond to them accordingly - the slight wound from a grenade from the back stairs may not be as important as the wounded soldier covering the control room.

    Valorous Unit:
    6th INF 1
    Squad Leader: |TG-6th|Skud

    Medic: Dirtboy
    Medic 2: Leap_ping
    Flawless - between the two of them they revived the entire squad 5 times over. Portable.Cougar's only death was due to accidental friendly fire. A true measure of service before self. When ammo became scarce after the first few waves, the two medics were also self-reliant enough to retrieve ammo from fallen enemy kits. I went down at least 5 times from what I remember - I know for a fact almost everyone went down just as many times as I did.


    Rifleman: PR|NATO|Mongol
    A later entry into the squad, Mongol's superior hearing allowed for us to keep the enemy from overrunning the front staircase at South Bunker. His repeated warnings when grenades were being thrown allowed for our squad to move accordingly - myself included on many occasions. He also was able to secure an enemy automatic rifle, which Portable.Cougar would use for the remainder of the round to great effect. He was very cautious with his grenades, and deployed them expertly to wound or kill enemies in tight quarters- bouncing them off ledges, walls, etc.

    Rifleman: |TG-6th|eGoatBoy
    Held the bathroom vent entrance for the entire round - which can prove difficult due to having extremely short notice of grenades being dropped down the vent, and infantry dropping down the vent within the blink of an eye. eGoatBoy also defeated the enemy multiple times while in complete smoke cover.
    Quote from mid-round: "All quiet on the toilet front..."

    HAT/SAW: |TG-X|Portable.Cougar
    For the intial assualt on North bunkers and it's defense, Cougar had the Heavy AT. He successfully made a 300m+ moving shot on an enemy BMP APC pinning friendly troops down in the bunker facilities. This neutralized and destroyed the threat. This shot took a lot of skill due to the unpredictable movement of APC's on uneven terrain and having to lead the shot.
    On the assualt at South Bunkers, Portable.Cougar shot down the enemy HAVOC attack chopper with a single, well aimed shot. The enemy chopper was hovering over 300m in the air, almost directly over the south bunkers. Enemy attack choppers, when shot down, cost the enemy 22 tickets (20 for attack chopper, 2 for pilots), and do not respawn for 20 minutes.
    While in the south bunker, trading his HAT for an enemy Auto-rifle, his hearing was imperitive to our success. Alerting the squad to enemies climbing the front ladder into the control room, movement and footsteps, and counghing from bleeding enemies. This allowed for quick and violent action to surprise and dominate the enemy in close quarters. It even went so far as a player on the other team accusing us of wall-hacking.

    [end]

    This round was a great demonstration of proper communications with mumble and in game voip. It was also a great demonstration of communication for mission success - communicating reloads, grenade tosses, and medic calls only added to our defensive advantage over the enemy.

    We were at the South Bunker, alone, for over an hour without support. The enemy team never captured the flag, or even moved it. Every single enemy assault from the time we entered to the time the round ended failed.

    Although the team may have lost the battle, the squad was responsible for 56+ kills, 1 BMP (10 tickets), and 1 enemy attack chopper (20 tickets). This brought the combined ticket count for the squad to 86+ with only 13-16 losses sustained.

    Who: |TG-XV| Buflak

    Where: multiple insurgent maps

    Recommended Award: Distinguished Defense

    Buflak is always up to join a "boring" base defend squad. He has the patience to stay a whole long game to defend main, saving tickets, helping the team. With his saw and hat skills he was always able to kill the threats.
    He is always helping to shovel the defend things (fb, razorwire, ...) also having new ideas how to improve the defend.
    I think he helped alot of times to win the game by doing basedefend.





    Who: Bullseye2550 (15th expeditionary force)

    What: Distinguished Commander

    Where: TG project reality server, Operation Barracuda

    When: October 20th

    I nominate him for this ribbon for being quick to make a strategy for the US team and then conveying it to the squadleaders and getting them all on the same page, he did an excellent job keeping the team going and focussed, he made the right decisions on at the right times and I feel that if he had not been there the team would not have fared so well.

    He was quick to respond to request by me as one of his squad leaders when I needed something or had an Idea he let me work on it and allowed me the freedom needed to be an effective squad leader.

    The US rarely win this round and I didn't go into the round with the expectation that we were going to win this one either. But after having been moved around the map a little and been engage on a few occasions my confidence in the team was growing. This was largely due to Bullseye being on the ball with every thing.





    Who?
    TG Forum name: Katanama

    What?
    Distinguished Volunteer - Class I


    Where?
    General Community Service – Summer through Fall 2009

    Katanama is a great PR player, squad leader and TG member. He has participated in many events in the past year, mostly in leadership roles and mentoring roles.

    During the IWS World Series, Katanama was critical to the organization of one of the teams, leading discussions and organizing the team. He volunteered his time to organize the player listing for the entire IWS that was instrumental in developing the award listing. Katanama commanded during the IWS, volunteering more of his time to the event that benefited the entire TG PR community.

    Katanama volunteered to become a TGU instructor a few months back and has become the most active instructor I have on staff. He is thoughtful, participative and active – something a model TG citizen and volunteer would do for the community.

    Katanama has always been one of the best PR squad leaders out there. He has really taken the time to capsulate his experience into classes for TGU, attempting to pass on his unique skills to the entire community – especially younger, less experienced players out there.

    Katanama has really shown his volunteer spirit this year. He has been a great positive force in the PR community over the year and years, and I think it is time we acknowledge his efforts with a class I ribbon.
