Congratulations trooper, welcome to Centurion :jc_doublethumbup:

It's been my honor and pleasure since 2015 to encourage troopers like yourself to shoot for the higher levels of accuracy. That said you're the FISD's 500th applicant and it brings me great joy to welcome you to this very unique group that strives for excellence. Job well done

It has certainly been an exciting journey that I have had here at the FISD, and that journey has included my own Centurion application and approval experiences.  I remember very well, my excitement, and that of other members who had encouraged me along the way.


Well, this is a very exciting day for all of us, but especially for you!  This is like a surprise birthday party at the office, as truly, the entire Detachment is joining to celebrate your achievement in having earned the title of Centurion at FISD.


Congratulations, on having done so.  Thank you, for having done so - your achievement will inspire future generations of FISD Stormtroopers and future Stormtroopers alike, to follow in your footsteps.  So yes, thank you for your commitment, your hard work, your diligence in making this happen.  We are all proud of you,, #500!


Now, let's reflect on how awesome an achievement this is, and let the celebrations begin!

Trina, this is a proud moment for the Detachment, and one I'm sure you will remember for a lifetime.

You have taken the steps to become a member of our highest accuracy level and can be proud to stand alongside your Centurion brothers and sisters.

Thank you for taking this journey, and becoming part of a detachment milestone, to not only join one of the 500, but to become the 500th centurion. :salute:

Stand by for your deployment order Trooper

Taking a look back at the history of the Centurion program

 

Like the march to 1000 EIB I went through the forum looking for information on how the Centurion program first came about. First time I believe it was mentioned was in the Paul's election Q & A back in February 2009 (thread can be found here

 

There was next a poll in March 2009 to decide whether to keep the name Elite or change to Centurion (thread can be found here)  Lots of names came up in the discussion and in the end the poll was closed with Paul commenting a new poll would be posted.

 

Next came a conversation in February 2011 with the program named Centurion (thread can be found here

And another mention end of February 2011 in staff area with goals in 2011 for creation of the program, also conversation about artwork and discussion of the name either Legion Centurion or just Centurion.

 

March 2011 and Paul posted in the announcement area the creation of the Centurion program (thread can be found here)  and also the Centurion program overview (thread can be found here

 

First Centurion standards are added to ANH CRL in April 2011 and announced in April's Newsletter (thread can be found here

Unfortunately I can't find any record of the final design of the Centurion logo that we see today,

It was added to the draft Centurion certificate design in May 2011

FIRST patch run of the red FISD detachment logo May 2012  (thread can be found here) It was thought that there had only ever been one run of the red version detachment patch BUT after doing some research for another newsletter piece I discovered there was also a run in 2014 and also 2015 which makes three runs total.

12" Version was produced in both blue and red 2016  (thread can be found here) If you are one of the lucky ones you may have purchased a 12" version which was produced in 2016 which also had an option of a larger centurion rocker, the 12" version and rocker where only produced once.

Multiple Centurion award recipients

There are a total of 17 multiple Centurion awards recipients, this was quite interesting to see after all we had 64 multiple EIB award recipients so I presumed most would have also applied to Centurion but that is not the case. 

 

Unlike EIB where you are issued with a star for each additional award received, for Centurion you only receive the one award any other additional Centurion awarded costumes have [APPRVOED] 2nd, 3rd, 4th and so on added to the title but nothing added to your forum profile.

 

Forgive me if I have missed anyone, here are those multiple reward recipients, congratulations to you all.

Another exciting milestone achieved, and a big congratulations to Trina who slipped into the 500th approved. Great work and also fantastic to have another female TK at centurion level. I hope you can inspire more women to do the same.
