It cannot have escaped the attention of all those to whom these letters come that a rapidly increasing number of men and women are being called into active military service and given orders which may put them into harm's way. As it is not in the nature of the Dragon to shirk when duty summons, that number cannot help but include some citizens of our fair realm.
It is the desire of Their Majesties that no Lord or Lady of the glorious Middle Kingdom shall go forth into conflict without the knowledge that they enjoy the full support of their Royalty and Kingdom. Thus has come about the establishment of the Midrealm Warriors Project which shall provide unto all those people of this kingdom who are called from reserve to active status with the armed services and/or shipped to a potential combat zone overseas a letter and token of recognition from the Crown.
If you know of a Lord or Lady who should be added to our list of warriors, please provide their SCA name, mundane name, and military mailing address to the Project using the contact information below.Midrealm Warriors ProjectIt is understood that many people have differing opinions regarding the mission to which these noble warriors are summoned. Please remember that the only goal of the Midrealm Warriors Project is to provide support and encouragement for individuals who are carrying out their sworn duty.
