This month's feature is our female Non-Commissioned Officers (NCOs): Electronics Technician Chief Petty Officer (ETC) Jessica Wilson, Senior Chief Master-at-Arms (MACS) Isabella Kelly (pictured above left), and Yeoman First Class (YN1) Halona Grayson (pictured above right).

Our NCOs not only provide specialized tasks to the departments they serve, yet they also provide leadership to the enlisted crew and Senior Non-Commissioned Officers (SNCOs) also provide leadership to the Officers they mentor.

ETC Wilson is an Electronics Technician by trade and serves as the Engineering Leading Chief Petty Officer (ENGLCPO), which means she oversees the enlisted personnel of the Engineering Department as their SNCO. Between Lieutenants Deeli Kosu (CHENG) and Iria Taltos (ACHENG), that means ETC Wilson is quite busy, ensuring the tasks of the Engineering Officers are dutifully carried out.

MACS Kelly is a Master-at-Arms by trade and serves as the Tactical/Security Leading Chief Petty Officer (TACSECLCPO), overseeing the enlisted personnel of the Tactical/Security Department as their SNCO. MACS Kelly has also been instrumental in managing the experimental K9 Division. She is often seen assisting LTJG Harry Stevens (ATACSEC), the senior officer of the department, ensuring the ship is secure and ready for battle.

YN1 Grayson is a Yeoman and serves as the Executive Department Lead Petty Officer (ADMIN). While she is not a SNCO yet, she is the Non-Commissioned Officer-in-Charge (NCOIC) of the Executive Department, overseeing the ship's paperwork. She is often seen assisting the Command Team, Commanders Tolkath (2XO/CSO) and Juan "JJ" Zamora (XO) along with Captain Akio Tachibana (CO) in executing their duties. As a Yeoman, she is trained in protocol and is very hospitable to visiting officers. YN1 Grayson is also talented in foreign languages, so she can often be seen assisting the Diplomatic Department as well. During battle, her station is in the CIC, staffing the comms.
