The Marine squadron had many of the original dragons still in its ranks. Syrus was on his last tour of duty. He would be retiring in four months, unless war with the Voldai was declared. His mate, Scott Andrews, was stationed in Fairbanks, Alaska. Syrus would be moving there after his retirement and opening a shifter training facility.
Penders and Perry were now part of Marine recruitment. The others, Tuft, Chulko, Stumpf, McCartney and Rund, had transferred to the Requiem with Dane. Three new Dragon Marines, Pacolay, Tkach and Mott, had joined the Squadron nine months ago.
Caroline, Tuft’s whale shifter mate was in Hawaii, expecting their second child. The first, Eric, was a water dragon, with the coloring of his mother’s blue whale. It was unusual to find a dragonette all one color.
Freddy Bishop, mate to Jacob Chulko, had been transferred to the Requiem at Franklin’s request. Captain Hiram Drexler had agreed to take back the rank of Vice Admiral and work at the Pentagon until his retirement. Franklin had been able to attend the ceremony and had extended best wishes from Dane and himself.
Dr. and Mrs. Penndragon were still aboard the Reagan
There had been few dragon/human problems on the Requiem, a testament to Franklin’s predecessor, Rear Admiral Robert Valamay. The Admiral’s new job at the Pentagon was to make relations between the Dragos and humans in the military more of a smooth and seamless entity.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.
