Weird my post from 6 hrs ago got dropped or deleted.

"Duke"'s first inclination is to contact the smaller or houses in lesser standing first as they are more eager to  broaden their power base, exposure and influence. However he will make a call contacting the cultural liaison asking for her suggestions or recommendations on whom he should call first and in which order, before a potential egregious error might be made.

Molly will inform “Duke” that she does not know what Ichizoku would be willing to speak with him. She will also inform him that the Cultural Wavefinders are to help the members of the GSF to understand the ways of Nejiro not the politics. She will offer that if “Duke” wishes to speak with the different Ichizoku that maybe if he talked with the commanders of the Ichizoku Militias he may have a better chance. After all you military types do talk the same way.

Also what kind of dropship headed for the mountainous area?

The class of DropShip is unknown. It used drop pods for the troops. It made a fast track and out of system.

The Grand Military Tattoo and Assault At Arms, the largest Military Tattoo and Pageant on Nejiro, always takes place the year before The Ichizoku Martial Olympiad (which takes place every six years for eighteen days in August), as standings from the Tattoo affect standings at the start of The Martial Olympiad. The term originates from an early Terran phrase 'doe den tap toe' - a signal sounded by drummers or trumpeters to instruct innkeepers near military garrisons to stop serving beer and for soldiers to return to their barracks. The Tattoo is a series of ancient, traditional, and modern martial competitions, contested by the officers and soldiers of the regular and auxiliary units of the Nejiroan Armed Forces, who compete for the honor of their units, budgetary considerations for their units morale, welfare, and recreation services section, challenge coins, and preferred leave days. Over one thousand performers are recruited from every Nejiroan Armed Forces unit and includes personnel from the Akai Yoake Military Academy, the Special Military School, the Nejiro Defense Troop,  all Ichizoku Militias, several PMC's, ROTC units from various military schools and colleges, the Nejiro Fire Brigade Wildland units, select law enforcement organizations, and the NPO. The show is highly choreographed and intensely rehearsed, it includes theatrics, costumes, and several different ethnic and cultural styles of traditional military music consisting of brass, drums, horns, pipes, symbols, and gongs. There are drill teams, hippika gymnasia, gymkhanas, furusiyya, and other cavalry manuevers, display teams, mock battles, bugle corps, drumline battles, staged assaults, historic re-enactments, displays of unarmed combat styles, celtic and other ethnic dancers and dance teams, aircraft flyovers, choirs, and military bands and orchestras from around the globe. There will be a Musical Ride conducted by assorted units of Cavalry, and a Musical Drive conducted by artillery. The event also includes fireworks, projection mapping across the facade of The Castle, fanfares, and massed Pipe & Drums from each of Nejiro's major ethnic cultures. The Tattoo occurs across five days of performances, and competitions, with both an opening and closing ceremony at each venue. The competitions are judged by military, professional, and celebrity judges at each venue of the tour, with winners announced at the end of the tour. Each show always closes with the Top Secret Drum Corps, the only 'civilian' performers in the show, and consists of a color guard and twenty five highly dedicated drummers from every corner of Nejiro. They use the Basel drumming style which is militaristic and derived from the military drumming drills of swiss soldiers in the middle ages of Terra, but at a much faster rate that is more upbeat and playful. Segments of the routine feature a rhumba, a drummers duel, drumstick juggling, fire sticks, and exploding flagpoles. Thirty percent of the proceeds of the tour will enrich several military, arts, and civilian charitable organizations including the Nejiro Armed Forces Benevolent Fund, the Wounded Warrior Project, Freedom Service Dogs, the USO, and Operation Homefront.

"Duke" would like to attend as it occurs on the anniversary of the death of his wife and children.

                                                                                Culture Trip 
                                                              Toro Nagashi = Flowing Lanterns 
                                                                                Dave Afshar   


Second in importance to New Year's is Obon - the lantern festival or festival of the dead. The annual lunar event is a national holiday celebrated in honor of ones ancestors and to show reverence to those who came before you, during August on the thirteenth through the sixteenth. During Obon it is believed that the spirits of deceased ancestors return to their homes. Toro Nagashi officially begins at the moment the ancestors commence their return to the spirit world.
First a mukae bi - a welcoming fire is lit, traditionally lanterns are hung in front of houses, so the ancestors can easily find their way home. Talk of the years happenings such as births or new jobs is then shared with the ancestors by visiting their graves, altars, shrines, and temples and leaving offerings of food and flowers. Families then come together to guide the spirits down to the sea using traditional candle lit lanterns lining the paths to the water, then once reaching the water floating lanterns with lit candles and senko incense are launched to guide the spirits return to the spirit world. As all humans originally came from the water, the lanterns visually represent the spirits return to the elements. In places without rivers, seas, or lakes the lanterns are released into the sky, to eventually return to the water. These lanterns are designed to ignite after reaching a certain height and then slowly burn away like flickering candles. Toro Nagashi sees thousands of lanterns set afloat at dusk to commemorate the souls of the dead, a spectacular display of light and dark as the lanterns glow slowly fades into the distance.
Its easy for visitors to take part, you can bring your own lanterns or buy them ready made for around fifteen ryu. At most major festivals you will find tables set up where you can decorate your lantern with pictures and wishes. The festivals are free to watch, although it is best to arrive as early as possible - the riverbanks tend to get very crowded, those wishing to release a lantern may need to wait in line as long as an hour.
You will also be treated to live music and traditional Obon dancing. The Bon Odori was originally choreographed to be performed in Yukata, and most often still is. It's a dance that is as mesmerizing as the lanterns, with movements and gestures that express wishes for a good harvest and good fortune. The moves are easy to learn and master, making it a very accessible traditional performance. 
Please make your travel arrangements early, as most companies close down operations during this period, so travel will be especially crowded at this time. It is an important family gathering time as most return to their hometowns to pray together with their extended family and await their ancestors spirit to return.

my fourth unit will be "Duke" in the Barghest (my unit's CO)

"Duke" will terminate the last comm call, exasperated and with a sigh realizing that the GSF is failing to win the hearts and minds of the people they are trying to defend.

He will send out a communique to the Governor, the GSF Commander, and the GSF executive officer that they reach out to the families in the area of the mission, hopefully coordinate the reconnaissance with their forces and the GSF.

Maybe I should put crittercams on all the local squirrels.  I'd have really good surveillance of the area that way. ;)

This isn't just a joke.  The males play chicken with cars to show the females and rival males who the toughest squirrel on the block is.
It also means that they will seek out combat vehicles to challenge making the crittercam idea not that far-fetched.

The Hands of the Goddess is sending a request up the chain of command for information on the clans in my area and suggestions on how to liaison with them.

my fourth unit will be "Duke" in the Barghest (my unit's CO)

"Duke" will terminate the last comm call, exasperated and with a sigh realizing that the GSF is failing to win the hearts and minds of the people they are trying to defend.

He will send out a communique to the Governor, the GSF Commander, and the GSF executive officer that they reach out to the families in the area of the mission, hopefully coordinate the reconnaissance with their forces and the GSF.

serveral of us have worked with the communities around us, is "duke" relaying this belief of his to kiah?

GSF units have helped problems that were local to the base they use. But none have done more to work with the locals.

“So we have few ways we can go. We can go the way we have, we can seek out the other two groups and see what they have to offer, we can work with those we have made minor in roads of we can …. “
“Yes each choice has its problems.”
“If we do what we have always done then at some time later the one that wins will force us into the fold.”
“If one of the outsiders win they will force changes that we will not want.”
“If we pick the wrong side!”
“Then we will not be around to do anything.”
“At this time none have the upper hand.”
“True none have full support. The one that can get the most support will win out.”
“True, but we have no idea how much support each has from off world.”
“I will offer that we talk with group two. We have made inroads with group three and group four is not going to get far. They just are not that strong.”
“What about group one?”
“After one of you has talked with group two. We need to know what they have in mind first.”
“Well group three does have a lot to offer, but do we want what they offer in the long run?”
“Groups two and three talk well but have not shown true wisdom. Group one is testing the waters. Group four has ideas we would not be able to live with in the long run.”
“True, it looks like we all see that four is out.”
“So we now need to find out more about the others.”
