    Gamertag: KSIDntAskImAwfl Division: DM My Dinner Party Guest #1: My son Joseph Why: He is the whole reason I ever picked up a controller to begin with. He started out playing Halo when it first came out and that's what he wanted to do for his special time together with mom. We eventually made it through the Halo series (except Halo 5) all on legendary before he suffered from extreme depression and passed away at age 15. He was my best friend. We watched the Walking Dead together, gamed and were roller coaster fanatics together. I miss our light saber battles and nerf gun wars, 3 story laser tag competitions and paint ball battles. He was a one of a kind. There would definitely be Nirvana in the background at my dinner party since we listened to it a lot together. Guest #2: Victor Wooten Why: As a bass guitarist, this guy is my idol. I put my bass down when I lost my son and haven't played it since. I've had 2 request to play again and I think I'm about ready. Victor is a fantastic motivator. I saw him once at a bar jam and he is so humble and easy to talk to. You would never know he won 5 Grammys. I would love the chance to get to know him better just as a person. Guest #3: My Meditation Coach (his name shall remain anonymous). Why: This guy has helped me through some seriously tough, tough times. He has worked coinciding with my PTSD therapy whether it was out patient or in patient and is , let's just say, mind blowing. We live 1800 miles apart and have never met but this dinner party would be a great chance to. I have been in therapy with the VA for 5 years and I have made huge progress since he was added a year and a half ago. We have become very close friends and he is definitely welcome at my dinner table. Guest #4: Corrie ten Boom Why: A woman of unbelievable strength. I have often looked to her life experiences and struggles of being held in a nazi concentration camp as a "political " for hiding Jewish friends from the Gestapo and the courage she learned, to inspire me to not give up in life. Life sucks, and sometimes it sucks the big one. I believe that we can draw strength from learning about others that have it worse then us and the courage that they display to keep going against all odds. I have often drawn strength from her life story while going through all the crap I go through in life. Guest #5: Tupac Shakur Why: Because its 2Pac. Would love to meet him. Guest #6: The fellow Marine that was a one night stand. (Not what you think) Why: As I was being medivacked back to the states after my trauma, this guy stayed by my side for 16 hours. I was extremely scared and did not trust anyone and this guy was so good at calming me down. There is no way I can describe how awful and messed up everything was but he took care of me the whole flight. When we landed in the states and they where taking me off the medivac he put his Marine Corp ring in my hand and promised me it would get better and I would be ok. Everytime I look at that ring I think about how it has gotten better and even though its been a long long road he was right. He is a true hero to me and I have no clue who he is. I would love to have him at my dinner party so that he could see just how right he was and how great a person he really is. Guest #7: Finally "Lucy", not the comedian but the character of the 2014 movie. Why: I was asked to watch this movie as part of my therapy and it has stayed in my brain every since. Short story, my trauma, I was taken in a foreign country while serving in the military and held captive for 2 weeks. Now, of course, going back and destroying the d*ckw*ds that did what they did to me is not an option but I would love to speak to the character "Lucy" because she did get to do that exact thing. Good therapy lol.

    Gamertag: KSI WHISKEY82 @KSI WHISKEY Division: Demonic Mayhem My Dinner Party Guest #1: Terry Goodkind Why: Terry is my absolute favorite author. His "Sword of Truth series absolutely inspired me as a child and continues to do so as an adult. His characters are deep and rich and feature the humanistic flaws so often left out of character development in sci-fi tales. I'd love the opportunity to sit with this man and discuss if his character models were based off real life people or completely imagined. As a story teller I believe this man to be the best, a hard sell in the face of the greats such as Shakespeare and Jules Verne and the likes. Also i need to convince this man personally to make a rated R movie that sees his vision to fruition on the big screen, as I dont believe many take the time to read anymore and would have missed his greatness in lieu of screen time. My youngest daughters middle name, is Kahlan, after a character in his book. As a daily reminder to raise her to be the kind of woman portrayed by Kahlan Amnell, a honest, hardworking, loving women, and a protector of all. Guest #2: Gordon Ramsay Why: Believe it or not, I'm not picking Ramasay to feed the party but rather to keep everyone at the table honest. This man came from a less than ideal home with an aspiring, however often failing, abusive, womanizing, alcoholic father who moved the family a lot due to failed career attempts. Despite the odds, Ramsay, is a true success story "pulling himself up by the bootstraps" so to speak and is one of the most successful people in his choice of career. I absolutely believe ol' Gordon would not accept a single iota of bullsh** from anyone sitting at my table, and watching him stand tall to my guests would be a thrilling thing to see. Guest #3: @KSI AWOL Why: Mr. Awol and myself have become fast friends here in KSI after many long nights on Destiny 2 and what we refer to as "The Homescreen Crew." Awol, when not working his full time job here as the General of Discord squad, works as a lawyer helping military veterans. Now you tell me what table isn't more fun with a Lawyer on Board? And who better than a friend with a great sense of humor and a willingness to fact check every statement made at this table ? My other guests may be famous or even from different times and eras, but I believe between Ramsay and Awol, the only thing my guests will be telling are absolute truths. Guest #4: Marie Curie Why: Marie Curie was a scientist and an inventor. She played a huge roll in developing the first X-ray machine. She was also the first woman to ever receive a Nobel Peace Prize. Her life span was from 1867-1934 and I'd be absolutely fascinated to hear of both her scientific ventures and gain a glimpse into the true genius of an inventor. A strong and notable character, it'd be interesting to ask her what she thinks of women's movements today. I am curious whether she would be a proponent of modern day feminism and what her thoughts are on how we spend our money regarding scientific queries of this time. What field would she choose to work in, if any, and how she believes she can help. Guest #5: Jesus Why: I mean c'mon, it's Jesus. So many questions! I'm not a religious man at all, however, there's been so many wars fought and lives lost in the name of this man and his Fathers, that I'd love to have a detailed accounting as to this mans history. Who knows, maybe he is a Jets fan like me! Guest #6: Robert Johnson Why: The man, myth, and stuff of lore, Robert Johnson was a blues man. Often referred to as the "father of the blues," Youve all likely heard the phrase "He, or she, has been to the crossroads" in reference to blues musicians. This is in direct reference to the theory that Robert went to the crossroads and met with the Devil himself and traded his soul at the crossroads to become the best guitarist known to man at the time. Hell of a story! (Pun intended), and I'd like to hear a firsthand accounting about what Mr. Robert Johnson himself has to say about that while listening to todays music as he likely grumbles about its apparent lack of soul. Guest #7: George Washington Why: The founding father of these United States of America. Who better to discuss a hefty course of modern day politics with. No doubt he would be disgusted and outraged about our current system of democracy and I, for one, want to hear all about it. What changes would he make? Would he himself run for president again? How does he feel about foreign diplomacy, NATO, and the course of this great nation? What does he think about the way our veterans are treated? Women's rights? The LGBTQ community? Would he adapt to modern day changes? Does he like Starbucks coffee? Can he drive a stick? Okay okay I admit I am a getting a bit of course here, but c'mon , imagine such a great man trying to learn a smartphone for the first time. Comical to say the least!

    Gamer Tag: KSI EzeD24 Division: Demonic Mayhem My dinner party: Guest #1: Terry Goodkind Why: This man is, in my humble opinion, one of the best authors of our time. His book series "The Sword of Truth" is rich with compelling story telling that draws you into the tale, truly making you feel like you are a part of the world he has created. His characters have a depth of relatability that is severely lacking in so many stories these days, each one having real and human strengths and flaws. To have a chance to pick his brain about where he drew his inspiration for the characters he developed and the story he told would be amazing. I named my youngest daughter after one of his characters, Kahlan, from Kahlan Amnell in the books. Her character is strong of will, hardworking, and honest. Qualities I hope my daughter will uphold in her own life. Guest #2: Jesus Why: The simplest answer is, the proverbial horses mouth. I am not a religious person by any means. An oportunity to hear this man tell the stories himself would be incredible, none the less. To hear how things really went down, what actually happened in his life, what he did during those missing years the bible has left out, would be nothing short of awesome. Who among us does not have at least some questions for a man of Jesus fame?! Guest #3: Mel Brookes Why: The man who made some of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Movies that have withstood the test of time, challenging stereo-types, and politics while remaining hilarious. His movies brought laughter to so many while still having a depth of undertone that made you think. Chatting with such a man would no doubt be a riot of a good time, rife with quick witted humor while still being richly intelligent. He would bring a levity to the table that would keep the conversations rolling and the smiles on faces of all who attended. Guest #4: Nikola Tesla Why: A brilliant inventor, a futurist, and the man behind AC (alternating current) power generation and transmission technology. His most well know invention is the Tesla Coil, seen in so many mad scientist labs. Not many realize he did so much more for the world we live in today. Wireless transmission of power and radio signals was just a couple of the things he had a huge part in. Conversations with a man such as this would be the best. As someone who has always loved tinkering with electronics, I would love to pick his brain even for a few minutes. I would also love to see what he thinks about modern tech and the strides it has taken largely in thanks to his work. Guest #5: Johnny Depp Why: He is one of the most diverse actors to grace the screen. His range of characters and his ability to play anything from Serious drama, to deranged sociopath, to goofy oddball has always peaked my interest. I have thoroughly enjoyed following his screen career. On top of being such an amazing actor he is a bit mysterious in real life which just feeds my desire to know more about the man behind the characters he portrays. The added bonus fact that he is a generally nice person, going so far as to randomly visit childrens hospitals dressed as Jack Sparrow, without ever seeking the attention from the media about it, fuels the intrigue. Hanging out with him just seems like it would be a stellar time, laid back sipping some bourbon and hearing tales of his life. Guest #6: Dan Harmon Why: He is co-creator and primary idea source behind one of my all time favorite animated shows, Rick and Morty. He was also a main stay in the comedy troupe, The Dead Alewives, which was a favorite lesser known group of mine. The show Rick and Morty on the surface seems simple and laudable at best but the underlying tone of existentialism is compelling. I would love to hear his creative drive behind the show as well as his own thoughts on existentialism. He just generally seems like the kind of guy who would have a quirky life view and that interests me. Guest #7: KSI AWOL Why: As someone who I have had the pleasure of getting to know throughout my time in KSI, someone I now consider amongst my truest and closest friends, I would assuredly enjoy breaking bread with him. His consistent drive to fact check and seek out the truth is always inspiring. Also as a fellow Rick and Morty fan I believe he too would enjoy meeting Dan Harmon. I also believe he would be an asset to any conversation with the fellows I have listed above as he brings a lot to any table in the form of good solid chat.

    Gamertag: KSI Trixie Division: DM My Dinner Party Guest #1: Edgar Allen Poe Why: He is one of the greatest, if not the greatest writers of his time. His superlative use of imagery is still emulated today with many writers. I would love to pick apart the mind of a man that could create things so dark as The TellTale Heart. I think he would bring a darker, more emotional side to the dinner party. Guest #2: My Nanny Why: My grandmother passed away a while ago. She was one the most genuine people I have ever known. She did not bring false image to try to impress anyone. She also would be the first one to call someone out on their crap. Even though she does this, she still gets along with everyone that she meets. My grandmother would be the one to make sure everyone was brining their genuine selves to the party. Guest #3: Sacagawea Why: She helped Lewis & Clark with their exploration of new lands. She lived a difficult life being kidnapped and sold unwillingly to her husband. Despite all of that, she still assisted Lewis & Clark so they could communicate with the Native Americans. It would be interesting to hear history from a Native American, and to see how she feels about the way they were treated during this time. She would bring a strong female perspective to the table. Guest #4: Sigmund Freud Why: Freud was the first one to develop and use psychoanalysis when treating patients. He also developed the Oedipus Complex, and ideas about dreams and the unconscious mind. Freud’s ideas are still applied in common day psychology. Since he was Jewish, he was also forced to leave Austria to escape the Nazi persecution. Freud would bring an unparalleled perspective to the dinner party. I am sure he would also have stories to tell about his escape from Austria. I would love to hear from him what he thinks are the motives and drives of each person at the table. Guest #5: Edward Teach (Blackbeard) Why: Edward Teach, also known as Blackbeard, was one of the most famous pirates of the 1700s. Piracy, as we know it today, was a very different experience in those times. Teach would be able to recount stories to elaborate on what life was really like as pirate in those times. Blackbeard was able to convince numerous men to follow his command, so he must also be a great speaker. He would draw people in with stories of the open water. Guest #6: Ann Boelyn Why: Henry’s VII’s 2nd wife was Ann Boelyn. He was married when he met her, but that did not stop him from pursuing Anne. Anne refused to be “the other woman,” and held tight to her values. Henry finally worked a plan to annul his first marriage, so he could be free to be with Anne. Henry, of course, later moved to another mistress. Anne was found guilty of charges of treason and sentenced to die. I am sure Anne would have some juicy stories to tell about King Henry VII. She knew him on both sides of the coin and saw both the good and the bad of the man. She would bring stories of romanticism, treachery and betrayal to the table. Guest #7: Vincent van Gogh Why: Vincent Van Gogh is probably one of the most widely recognized artists. He suffered from mental illness and even had psychotic breaks. He spent time in mental hospitals because of this. Like many artists, his fame was not fully discovered until after his death, and mystery surrounded his cause of death. Some say he committed suicide, while other call it foul play. To have someone like Van Gogh and Freud at the same table is priceless. Van Gogh could also provide insight as to how he really died and clear up the mystery.

    Gamertag: KSI Sgt Peppers Division: Demonic Mayhem My Dinner Party Guest #1: Annie Lennox Why: Annie has inspired me since first hitting the scene with the band, The Tourists and then Eurythmics. Her lyrics have been life changing for me, along with her actions as a political activist and a philanthropist. Anne has been bringing awareness to the HIV/AIDS plight on women and children in Africa for many years. She currently is an officer of the Order of the British Empire. Guest #2: Joan of Arc Why: At a young age this woman led an entire French Army to victory over the English. What led Joan to take on this feat is something I would love to discuss with her. I would love to ask her if she really understands why she was burned at the stake for being a heretic. Guest #3: Evita Peron Why: This woman's charity work is astounding, along with her political stamina. She held a country captive through her life and death. This woman changed the face of Argentina. Guest #4: Margaret Thatcher Why: Margaret embodied the true earmarks of the British Conservative Party. She held strong convictions in the areas of economics, social, and political style. I would love to discuss how hard it was to be the first woman prime minister. I think her policies are still relevant in the modern world and deserve a deeper gleaning. Guest #5: Penthesilea Why: I would love to discuss the training and lifestyle this Amazon Queen. She led an army of Amazons to fight for Troy against the Greeks. To hear her reenactment of the battle would be awesome. She led very strong women who lived by courage and pride. I think the women of today's world could use her discipline and fortitude. Guest #6: Diana Frances Spencer, Princess of Wales Why: This woman held the entire world captive with her natural charm, grace and elegance. She had many demons that plagued her life that I would love to discuss, such as her eating disorder, postnatal depression and low self esteem. I think I could learn a great deal from her in these areas that could help others. Guest #7: KSI SKYDIVER Why: I have gotten to know KSI SKYDIVER over our love of Destiny 2. I am astounded by this woman's determination to make a place for her and her family in the USA. She has patiently waited far too long, to become a citizen of the USA, but faces many obstacles. Her tenacity to support her family and be a model citizen is courageous and admirable. This fellow Italian is someone I can call a true friend. I know the conversation at this table with her will be filled with laughter and honest convictions.

    Gamertag: KSI M3NTALIST 7 Division: Eternal Souls My Dinner Party Guest #1 Stan Lee Why: Purely for his genius for creating the Marvel Universe and an untold amount of characters that we as KSI members have loved and adored for many years not just in comics but in movies also. And to ask him how he dedicated countless decades doing the same job day in and day out. Guest #2: Shaquille O'neil Why: I would like him to be at my dinner party because he has a focus like no other, not only playing basket ball and being inducted in to the basketball hall of fame but also going back to school to earn the degrees and masters that he wanted to get before he became a basketball star, also for his undying love for his family and drive for constant success. Guest #3: JK Rowling Why: Not just for her literary prowess for creating one of the most successful book and film franchises but her determination to be better for her family, coming from benefits (social security) backgroind to becoming a billionaire takes a drive, determination and a hard work ethic that can only be compared to very few people. Guest #4: Arsene Wenger Why: Because as a once aspiring football (soccer) coach in my youth this man took his team Arsenal to an incredible unbeaten run of 49 games in the domestic league and as such won countless trophies along the years he was with the club as a manager a great man in his field of sport Guest #5: Will Smith Why: To bring a comedic element, and a music flair to the dinner party and who doesn't love the Fresh Prince lol Guest #6: Kevin Hart Why: Well to start off I would have to get a booster seat so we could actually make eye contact at the table lol also another person who can bring a comedic element to the table as well as asking what its like to like to with a multitude of famous actors coming from a comedic background and obviously to say No Noooooo he wasn't ready (and you just said it like Kevin Hart haha) Guest #7: Gordon Ramsey Why: Last but not least, now this person needs to be at my dinner party so he can either tell me if the food is good or if it's S##T either way he would be a brilliant addition to the party

    Gamertag: KSI Sloppyxj42 Division: Demonic Mayhem My Dinner Party 1. Chester Bennington (1976 – 2017) I would like to start my guest list with one of my many vocal and songwriting idols. First I would like to explain shortly why this one hits home for me. Music has been there for me especially during times that nothing and no one else was. It has always been the one constant in my life. and also has been the one thing that has always been mine that no one could ever take from me. So music and singing, as well as writing is everything to me, it is my passion and my one true love in this world. It has helped me through some of the roughest times of my life. so for me sharing a meal and good conversation with Chester who not only had an astonishing vocal range and incredible vocal control. he also had a way of pouring all his pain and passion into his singing, not to mention his extremely deep songwriting that very few musicians have. this would most certainly be one of the highlights of the 7 people at my dinner party. 2.Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875 – 1950) My second Guest is by far my favorite author of all time. one of the more forgotten and less well known prolific authors of the 20th century. I have always had a love for sci-fi and fantasy genres but most of all adventure be it movies or books. and this man is the master of adventure! most that do know of him, know of him from the most recent John Carter movie (the Barsoom / a princess of Mars series) as well as the better-known character Tarzan of which he wrote I believe 27 novels about. personally, my favorite books were the Pellucidar series ( at the earth's core) you do hear little tidbits and shout outs to him in even recent movies like wonder women because his books were favorites of soldiers during both world wars. I think this may have been the case because of his ability to take you away from your problems with his uncanny ability to capture your imagination. also, I think one of the major things I find so appealing also is his writing influence stretched from George Lucas and star wars to even the creation of characters like Superman. I can't imagine having a guest list without my favorite storyteller of all time. 3. Nicola Tesla (1856-1943) This one will be much shorter because it is pretty simple. Nicola Tesla has been known as the father of the modern world. this man held around 300 patents several of which are responsible for everything from the alternating current power that we use for everything today to lay the groundwork for wireless technology and so much more this man although he went mad in his later years and had some pretty debilitating mental issues is one of the most influential men to ever walk this planet and I would certainly love to have a man that even Einstien regarded as the smartest man on the planet join my dinner party. 4. George Carlin (1937-2008) I mean who would no love to have the chance to spend the evening dining and enjoying the banter of George Carlin. Not only would he bring the light mood of his hilarious personality he had such an amazing way of seeing the world a very no bull attitude and would certainly be a great addition to any dinner table. also, his way of addressing politics is about the only way I can tolerate the subject. 5. Simon Cowell I have to say after reading a couple of the other pieces written here I have realized the importance of having a moderator at the table someone as @whiskey82 mentioned someone to keep everyone honest. for this purpose, I have chosen Simon Cowell. this man is absolutely brutal and has zero issues calling people out on there bull without getting feelings involved sometimes I really enjoy the people that can say hey sorry bout how ya feel these are facts and no matter how you feel about them... this is just how it is. suck it up buttercup :-P lol 6. @KSI WHISKEY82 So I am Going to wrap up my KSI member/friend/family all in one here Whiskey and I go way back and have been friends basically our entire adult lives. with that said we are basically polar opposites when it comes to our personalities which is always a solid foundation for good banter and debate. I think he would be a great addition to this dinner party as we have already shared probably hundreds of meals together already. and I know he would love to meet Simon Cowell as well...lol 7. Betty White Last but certainly not least is Betty White. Who better to have at a table full of guys than this amazing actress. She would most certainly b able to handle herself and all the male egos at this table and make everyone laugh at the same time. She has had the longest television career of any female entertainer to this day, around 80 years. She is absolutely hilarious and has a great sense of humor and is someone I would very much enjoy meeting. I think she would certainly be an amazing addition to this dinner party.

    Whiskey has always had one goal in mind. What can he do for the members to make it easier, funner, and better for them. With this goal in mind, he has made huge changes in some of the things we do in DM and in his own squad. We have not always agreed about everything from the get go, but imo, that is something that has made him the leader he is today. Every officer, and i dare say his gen, look up to this man as an example of what a leader should be. He is constantly on top of EVERYTHING going on in his squad. from the gamenight scheduling, to the random get togethers. From making sure a new officer is getting the training they need, to ensuring he and Awol have all the info they need to do their thing. . Everything he does, he does for the members and when he is arguing for something, its never about himself, its something he thinks needs changed or done to make something easier on the members. He, aswell as Awol, didnt have the greatest guiding hands coming up thru the ranks, but they still managed to find everything they need to get the job done, and so much more. I can not wait to see where this man goes in the future.

    Founder Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI VENUM 7 Founder DW Link to forums account - @VENUM 7 Reasoning why they deserve this - DW has been through some hardships recently, but under a man with a plan like Venum we have easily picked up out of our slump. Not only does Venum have a game plan for the division he has also been putting it to test. There’s a lot of leaders who have the drive to put in effort but there’s never any follow through. Venum on the other hand is the leader with the drive and the leader with the follow though. Recruiting has really picked up under him. He’s pushing others to do the best they possibly can as members and officers. This man deserves Founder of the month this month and many more months to come. Soon I can see this man getting Division Leader of the month as well. Keep it up brother. General Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Majesty Gen DW Samurai Link to forums account - @KSI Majesty Reasoning why the deserve this - Majesty has been doing a great job as General of Samurai. Although over the past few month the squad has been in a stand still she is still working hard to get it out. Recently she was given goals to do and within that night she worked hard to get it done. Then after that she set up more goals for herself. If you give her something to do then she’ll get it done as soon as possible and put 100% effort into it. She is going to do great things for the future of Samurai. Captain Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI xMinion 2CPT DW Samurai. Link to forums account - @KSI xMinion Reasoning why they deserve this - Along with Majesty, Minion always does her best to make sure her squad is doing good. She’s always there for anyone that needs her. On top of her living 5 hours ahead of everyone else, and her job she always does her best to put her effort in multiple areas of KSI. On top of captain responsibilities, she is also in marketing as well as being Editor in training in News. She does great things for Samurai. Really has stepped up over the past few months. I see big things for her in the future. LT Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Ragingone86 1LT DW Hannibal Link to forums account - @KSI RAGINGONE86 Reasoning why they deserve this - Not a lot of people like Ragingone86 come around a lot. When he first joined KSI it wasn’t long after he realized what he wanted to do. This is a guy that will do whatever it takes to make sure all members are doing good. He always asks questions so he can gain as much knowledge as possible to use it later on. Every time I ask him when he’s getting on he says “right now.” This man lives and breathes KSI. I honestly can not wait to see what the future holds for this dedicated member of KSI. Department Member Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI MeShell 7 Productions Senior Staff Link to forums account - @KSI MeShell 7 Reasoning why they deserve this - MeShell was one of the first Senior Staff promoted in productions and it was for good reasons. She is one of Productions longest standing members and most active members. Can always rely on her for streams. She has helped a lot of the new members become acquainted to the department. Showing them how to set up streams and as well how to stream and how to get activated on the Twitch. She is also a bit of an overachiever in the department as well :). Shell sometimes puts in 2 streams a week when we only require a minimum of 2 a month. She shows that she is a dedicated Productions member and a great motivator to the rest of department. If she keeps it up she’ll be doing big things in the future. Member Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Starset 7 4LT DW Elysium Link to forums account - @KSI Starset 7 Reasoning why they deserve this - Starset recently returned back to KSI about 2 months ago. First month he laid low hanging out getting a feel of everyone in DW. Not long after he transferred to Elysium to help out and he has definitely shown it. He helped that squad get to 50 members. He is on his way back up ranks. He’s great at recruiting as well as making sure everyone is having a great time. Not only is Starset making his mark in clan ops. He is also part of 2 departments. He is in HSI which I hear great things about. As well as the AAP Department in which he recently joined. All in almost all this guy is doing great in all areas of KSI, and I can’t wait to see what he does next.

He is a very understanding person with amazing leadership traits and gets nothing but respect from his staff members. He will go out of his way to help out anyone in need and also is the type of person you can sit down and have a heart to heart conversation with. FadeZ gives his 110% in his department which is why I believe he deserves this award. Department Member Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Soap 7 (Productions) Link to forums account - @Soap God Reasoning why they deserve this - Soap since joining productions has been hard at work editing videos, clips, and montages to perfection.

Founder Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSIxROMEO 7 - Founder DM Link to forums account - @KSIxROMEO 7 Reasoning why they deserve this - Since Gruntier's promotion to Director, Romeo has shouldered most of the burden of running Demonic Mayhem.

Co-Founder Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Dragons 7 - CoFounder DM Link to forums account - @Dragons 7 Reasoning why they deserve this - He's a phenomenal KSI member, between running the Graphics Department and overseeing 2 flourishing squads. Dragons does a lot for both squads and spends a lot time hanging out with both squads and engaging members on a daily basis alongside the officer staffs. He's an excellent CoFounder and worthy of an OTM award.

    Gamertag: KSI Deka Division: Demonic Mayhem My Dinner Party Guest #1: Nigella Lawson Why: For starters, the ubiquitous, I am going to selfishly ask her kindly to bring dessert and Roostertails. But, beyond her relaxed culinary abilities I find her fascinating. She hasn't had, let's say, the tidiest personal life but she has perseveered and her work ethic is inspiring. She took something she loved and made a career out of it. Her writing style is also something to be envied; casual, friendly, but not overly simplistic. Plus, she can make anything sound mischievous and I think it would be fun to have a conversation with her. Guest #2: Shakespeare Why: Myth? Legend? Some dink who has taken (or been given) credit for the work of many? I want to meet him and find out. How many modern literary tropes stem from his story telling? He also had a way with words and a lascivious sense of humour-sitting him next to Nigella may be trouble (or a riot). Guest #3: Terry Pratchett Why: Firstly, I have to say that I have never finished a discworld series book - I have started and thoroughly enjoyed what I read, but University reading lists got in the way and I just haven't picked them up again (yet). I have read other works including his short story collections for kids. They were funny, even for an adult reading aloud. His humour spans demographics. Anyone who has had to read to children knows that this is a fantastic quality in a children's author, and also fairly rare. My niece, who loves books but struggled with reading by herself picked them up and plowed through them. His work was a stepping stone to her new found love of reading by herself and for that I am eternally grateful. Guest #4: Neil Gaiman Why: Wouldn't it be fun to reunite Neil and Terry for a night? Good Omens was a fantastic book and I think listening to them chatter away would be.. miraculous. Not to mention the genius of Neil all by himself. His ability to write for so many mediums and, again, write for children in a way that also appeals to adults is amazing. More so because he does not write down to them, which I find admirable. Guest #5: Nostradmus Why: I honestly don't have a lot to say about him, I just really want to see this man of predictions' reaction to what the future really is. Guest #6: Leonardo Da Vinci Why: Da Vinci was a man of so many talents. His artwork is beautiful no doubt, but his curiosity; fascination with human anatomy, science and engineering; and all of his sketches and designs (wings, shoes for walking on water and varied machinery) are what really draw me to him. He had infinite imagination and interests and managed to sew the arts and sciences together beautifully. His perspective on the modern world would be interesting to hear. Guest #7: Uncle Gardy Why: Narrowing it down to just one family member was difficult for me, but when I really thought about it, the choice was obvious. Gardy was my great great uncle. He never had kids of his own but he raised my grandfather, who I never met, and played a large role in raising my father. He died right before my mum met my dad so none of us have met him either, or any of my father's family for that matter. I have so many questions. Some of them about my dad growing up, some about his father-who he didn't always have the best relationship with- and I want to know who the hell the people are in the pictures we found after my dad died. More importantly, I have questions for Gardy about himself. I want to hear his stories. He was born in the late 1800s and died in his 90s in the 1970s. He watched the world change so much, so quickly and dove right into it. He worked in factories at various levels during a very tense period for Labour Relations. He was an early adopter of the automobile in England and had the tools to tinker. Gardy also has multiple patents in his name, lived through both world wars and if my father was to be believed, he was in Nazi Germany as a spy between the wars. I want to know what stories were true and which were mis-remembered and quite frankly, if my dad's sense of humour was anything to go on, I bet Gardy would be a riot around the dinner table. If Gardy was the only one who made it to dinner, I would not be disappointed.

    Gamertag: KSI YeetQueen Division: SL My dinner party Guest 1: So for my first guest I would go back in time and grab my dad before he died and would bring him to the dinner party as I feel like he should be here to witness this amazing party. He meant a lot to me and before he died when I was five I was closer to him than anyone else even more so than my mother. Guest 2: For the second guest I would definitely have @Greenday 7This women is my rock and soul in this community she has kept me fighting when I have wanted to give up. She is the light inside of the tunnel for me. She goes through a lot and has been through a lot and still remains positive. I would take her out to dinner any time if we weren’t half way across the world from each other. Guest 3: My next guest would be the lovely Jenifer Lawrence because she is amazing I have true respect for her and I think she is so beautiful. Guest 4: Seat four at my table would be Melissa Macarthy due to her being an insane actresses and is the one actresses that always make me laugh no matter what. Guest 5: My next guest would be something magical now a lot of you will say this is stupid but at my dinner I would 100% have Pikachu due to Pikachu being my spirit animal. Guest 6: Nina Dobrev would be my next guest as her work in the Vampire Diaries was amazing and I would love to pick her brain about acting ❤️ Guest 7: My next guest Sia because she could sing She Wolf as it’s one of my favourite songs and I just feel that she is so inspirational. Guest 8: Celiene Dion due to her being someone I grew up listening to. My family loved her music and we still do. One of her songs was played at my dads funeral and now this will forever be the most relatable song for me. Guest 9: Jade from Little Mix because she is so beautiful and how could you not stare at her over a table at a dinner party Guest 10: Sandra Oh due to her amazing performances on Greys Anatomy. Her character Christina was played so well and I believe that she put her heart and sole into this role

    Here is a fun one for you guys and gals . We all know that finger we shouldn't raise in mixed company and the phrase associated with it. PLUCK YEW! Now calm down, I swear I'm not cursing. Have you ever wondered how the inappropriate variant came to be? I have, so I looked it up just for your amusement! Before the ancient battle of Agincourt in 1415 ( yes, that's a real battle ) the French sought to cut off the middle fingers (that were used for resting the arrow upon to guide and aim before firing) of all English long bowmen. Barbaric but true! Long bows back then were made from the wood of the yew tree for its strength resilience and subtle elasticity. Therefore when a long would bowman nock and fired an arrow it became know as "plucking the yew." Now, the English won this great battle of Agincourt and the long bowman triumphantly waved their middle fingers at the French to mock their inability to capture them and remove the offensive appendage. Sound familiar ? Yeap, the English are behind the waving of this dastardly little finger and yet the French kinda brought it upon themselves ! Got a cool origin story for a phrase or gesture? Please share it here so we can all enjoy a little fun history! I'll try and share a new one a few times a week as well

    When I first got promoted to gen, whiskey was one of the first recruits I got within literally minutes. I have seen home build himself up in this community and has made a name for himself. He's selfish, a great leader, he's responsible, and one of the most caring people you will meet here. He gives 110% to every situation he's presented and has gone above and beyond to make sure his squad is happy, healthy, and growing. He inspires people to do the right thing and isn't shy from telling you how things are gonna down. He isn't afraid to hurt feelings if it means that the right and just thing will be done. He bends over backwards for his squad and always tries to give a helping hand in everything. Given the opportunity, he will leave his mark in KSI as a great gen and possibly as an amazing 7. The future is literally limitless and I can't wait to see where the road takes him.

    Gamertag: KSI December 77 Division: Divine Warriors My Dinner Party Guest #1: Caesar Augustus Why: Augustus founded the Roman Empire in 27 BC, after being forced to battle the armies of both Cleopatra VII and Marc Antony. This marked the official end of Julius Caesar's Republic of Rome. Augustus’ enormous personal power, won though bloody struggle, left him without any rivals. He conquered Egypt and Dalmatia and its northern countries. His Empire grew south and east in Africa; north and east into Germania and south-west in Spain. He overhauled the tax system to pay for his new standing army and Praetorian Guard. He transformed Rome with new buildings, a police force, fire brigade and proper local administrators. He was generous to his people and ruthless to Rome's enemies. Most famous quote would be, “I founded Rome of clay and leave her a city of marble." Guest #2: JRR Tolkien Why: He created Middle Earth. Need I say more? The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, countless other books. He was an amazing author and man of faith. Had an awesome friendship with CS Lewis as well. Would love to have a chat with this man and pick his brain. Adopt him too, probably. (HE ALSO CREATED MULTIPLE WRITTEN LANGUAGES.) Guest #3: George Lucas Why: Star Wars, M***** F*****. The brilliant mind behind the stories that have captivated men, women and children across the globe. I want his brain. I want his social connections. I want a ride in the Millennium Falcon. I think he'd be so fun to talk to in a casual way. Plus, he and Tolkien would probably become good friends. Guest #4: Jossi Wells Why: Professional Freestyle skier from Australia. I want to hear his stories. And see what advice he'd have to offer. Dude is a legend on the slops. Guest #5: Lindsey Vonn Why: Olympic skier and all-around athlete. I wanna get lost in her eyes. Seriously. I don't even know if she has a cool personality but I'd bet money she does. Guest #6: Bono Why: #1. I wanna listen to him sing "With Or Without You" at the table. #2. I wanna hear rock and roll stories from the 80's and 90's. Dude is a legend. U2 was probably my favorite band growing up. Vinyl obsession, no shame. Guest #7: Hot girl I shared a ski lift with back in 10th grade Why: Because she was probably the prettiest person I've ever seen in real life. We talked on the chairlift for about 10min and then went our separate ways when we got to the top. I was waaaaay to nervous to ask what her name was. Never saw her again.

    KSI WHISKEY82 Outstanding Service Level 1

    Despite the stresses and time constraints of being a single parent, Whiskey has committed a lot of his free time to the betterment of our squad and KSI as a whole. He is integral to the success of our squad. He works closely with AWOL to ensure that everything is running smoothly and everyone is well informed. When we found that we were all lacking training (long term issues, no slight against current leadership intended) he jumped into action to make training smooth and consistent. I personally can be a bit nervous/anxious at first and he helped walk me through recruiting and training, allowing me (and everyone else) to practice the process on him first before I jumped into an actual (supervised) recruitment myself. When our numbers were low Whiskey encouraged everyone to go on a recruiting spree, but set a good example by going above and beyond to bring in new and quality recruits himself as well. I believe he sent out upwards of 300 messages that week and consistently goes above and beyond to keep our numbers healthy. He is always in our squad chat and joining in the gen chat to get people excited an involved. He, along with others encouraged Joey to do his Bird of the Day and when Joey had to leave for irl time constraints Whiskey started piping in with some funny (as in please don't follow these)tips. Everyone knows and loves Whiskey. Whiskey, is an essential part of the open communication in our squad and amongst officers. He expresses his opinions and encourages others to do the same. Whiskey, having had a bit of a rough start with KSI, butting heads with 7s and other leaders in the community, has turned himself and those relationships around. I have seen him mend relationships with people and become more and more patient when frustrated with a situation, seeking out solutions to problems and coming with facts and concrete arguments, while keeping a cool head. I have also seen him handle delicate conversations with members, helping them feel comfortable despite the need for the private conversation. His recent promotion to 1st Captain I think speaks volumes about the fences he has mended and the efforts he has made to succeed and help others succeed.

    Whiskey is the life of the party in Any game night. He can make you go from bad day to your pissing your pants laughing. You can never have a dull day with Whiskey. There's times ill stay up 1-3 in the morning seeing Whiskey recruiting people into KSI. He would make sure their a good fit for KSI he just doesn't go around and recruit just to get the numbers up.

    GEN Gamer tag (rank, division/squad): KSI AWOL (GEN DM/Discord) Link to forums account: @KSI AWOL Reason why they deserve this : AWOL deserves this for so many reasons.The first and foremost is his dedication to the squad and to KSI as a whole. He works tirelessly to maintain the squad in all aspects. He is always courteous and maintains an open mind when ever he is confronted with the many situations that arise within the squad. Through it all he still finds the time to help anyone in game and out. He goes above and beyond in making sure his squadmates are ok even in rl. He is truly an exemplary leader within KSI. He is almost always readily available for a chat and brings a level head to any encounter. As a GEN he has continued beyond simply bringing Discord squad back from the brink of implosion, and pushed it to strengthen the bonds of his fellow squad memebers and stimulate strong and healthy growth. CPT Gamer tag (rank, division/squad): KSI WHISKEY82 (3CPT DM/Discord) Link to forums account: @KSI WHISKEY Reason they deserve this: Whiskey is a driving force within Discord squad. He continues to promote steady growth while at the same time fostering and assisting every new recruit. He is always down to have some plain ol gaming fun or help a squadmate in need. He continues to bring fresh and innovative ideas to KSI while strongly sticking to the core value of "no member left behind". His recruiting skills are exemplary and he has done an amazing job in assuring that every officer (myself included) is comfortable and capable to do all the necccesary tasks we have as officers. I truly believe he will make an excellent GEN one day. LT Gamer tag (rank, division/squad): KSI Sgt Peppers (2LT DM/Discord) Link to forums account : @KSI Sgt Peppers Reason they deserve this: Peppers has risen to power house levels in short order and in the best of ways. She took to the officer roll with a professionalism and vigor that inspires. She is always quick to tasks and has shown an incredible skill for getting ahold of folks where others may have had trouble doing so. She is timely and excellent with handling promotions and trainings. She is eager to help whenever help is needed. She is a joy to game with and is an amazingly unique person who knows how to laugh and make others laugh. Her generosity is something wonderful, going above and beyond in helping out a fellow gamer in need. She did so without request and sought no reward for it, she helped out simply for the sake of helping. Selfless and friendly, she has been an amazing addition to Discords officer ranks and I look forward to seeing how far she goes, as I truly believe she will continue to be an inspiration to her fellow kSI members. MEMBER Gamer tag (rank, division/squad): infinityhunt (cpl, DM/Discord) Link to forums account: @Infinityhunt Reason this member deserves this: infinity is one of the greatest members a squad could ask for. He truly shines as a gamer, friend and companion in arms. He is very active within the squad as well as in KSI as a whole, taking part in HH and WW, and still continues to exemplify the KSI moto of "no gamer left behind" as he constantly jumps to arms to assist a fellow gamer in a difficult boss fight or to make the final push to progress further in game. He is quick witted and brings a great personailty to any game night. His flair for life is infectious and his passion for gaming burns bright.

    Captain KSI WHISKEY82 DM Discord 3CPT Forums account: @KSI WHISKEY Reasoning: I know that AWOL has posted Whiskey's stats already and those speak for themselves, but he is so much more than his stats as a Captain. When AWOL was on LOA this month there was no one better to keep things running smoothly than Whiskey. He has the respect of everyone, has a lot of patience (and it is growing all the time) and he goes above and beyond in everyway. Specifically I would like to highlight a few things: Training and knowledge: he is committed to making sure that all of the officers have the resources available to them and are able to perform their duties to the best of their abilities. Taking each of us under his wing to make sure our training is consistent and follows the guidelines. He is also always willing and able to lend his knowledge and abilities to the squad at large when it comes to all things KSI and gaming related (or not). If he doesn't know something he will help you find the answer. I personally have benefited from this. I had surgery at the beginning of the year that has made gaming difficult especially in social games where recruiting is possible. He has been helping me find ways to get around that including helping me set up my pc so I can still game with the KSI/xbox community on some games. Recruiting: Whiskey goes above and beyond consistantly not only in doing the recruiting himself, but encouraging everyone who has a hard time with it to do better. He is constantly coming up with ideas to make it easier for us to recruit and get new, quality people on board. Squad participation: Whiskey is always encouraging members to participate whether it is through friendly competitions in games, chatting in discord, his fun facts (which I hope no one ever listens to) and encouraging game night participation/inclusion. He encourages their involvement in all facets of the KSI community. He is also honest and doesn't beat around the bush when it's time to get down to business. This is possibly his best leadership quality. Lieutenant KSI Sgt Peppers DM Discord 2LT Forums account: @KSI Sgt Peppers Reasoning: Peppers is a new officer but always willing to jump on a task and get it done. AWOL has barely mentioned things that need to be done and she is tackling them. Her game nights are always lively and active, getting everyone involved in fun and friendly competition. She is an amazing addition to our squad and a standout LT. Member infinityhunt DM Discord Forums account: @Infinityhunt Reasoning: infinityhunt is loved and adored by everyone in our squad. I have never heard an unkind thing uttered about, or by him. He is our personal Head Hunter Hero in Discord and is always up to game with anyone on any game if he has it, or just chill and chat if he doesn't. He is patient and an upstanding member of this community.

    OS1 Nomination KSI Nagisa

    @KSI Nagisa just like the previous comment from king those details are facts and as the previous gen he has helped me since the get go. I know I was never the greatest but when he was their he did more and more than what was required both by the handbook and by the previous gen, as well as the 7 leadership within the div. when I stepped down and he took over as gen he has never stopped. He has not just help build the foundation of angels but the whole div to keep people involved.

    OS1 Nomination KSI Nagisa

    Nagi was the heart and soul of Angels for a long while as he assisted the prior general with all of his duties as well as picking up the SSGT & LT duties until they were finally able to start building a stable staff. Nagi is always online playing with his members, making sure people are being trained and promoted in a timely manner and trying to motivate his members and his staff to strive for the same greatness that he strives for. Nagi tells me all the time that he wants to do the best that he can as well as advance his career and take his squad to the top. Nagi Is always hitting up Hatter & Myself to ask questions and try to better himself as a general. The best part about this guy is that he has that never give up attitude and he spreads that attitude throughout his squad. Now, I'm not at all saying that nagi is the greatest ever cause yes he has his flaws but he acknowledges those flaws and is always working at trying to improve them! Nagi is a future leader in this community hands down and getting this award is just a start

    Senior Leader Gamertag KSI Scotland 7 Chief dept manager, all of KSI Link to forums account - @Scotland Reasoning why they deserve this - regardless of whether he has this award or not I think it is fully deserved due to the fact that since i have been in KSI from Last Strike to Eternal Souls now Scotland has always been there to help me out with issues and advice when I needed it not just in KSI but in the real world to. A very knowledgeable man who passes down knowledge as and when needed. Also has not just a select few people who respect him from the community but a multitude of the people he has met and gamed with, held in high regard by many. This award is definitely deserved Division Leader Gamertag KSI xKing 77 Division leader ES Link to forums account - @KSI xKing 77 Reasoning why they deserve this - Undoubtedly fully deserving of this award due to the fact he has a successful division with a knowledgeable 7's staff (there is only one lol ) and not forgetting the generals and squad officers. With ES wining spring break this year it just goes to show that the participating members in ES was large and also shows that officers are doing what they have to and have soaked in the knowledge of the officers above them. Founder KSI Hatter 77, Founder ES Link to forums account - @Hatter 77 Reasoning why they deserve this - now what to say about this exceptional woman and KSI member, I have risen the ranks with this lady over in Last Strike and now Eternal Souls, hatter is now my founder ( how the roles have reversed lol ) all Hatter wants to do is strive for greatness for the good of her division and the community, will sit down with people and explain things on a regular basis in a party if they are confused about something or just need advice in general. A superb leader in KSI and this award couldn't be more fitting General KSI Jynxie General Banshee ES Link to forums account - @KSI Jynxie Reasoning why the deserve this - Undoubtedly jynxie deserves this award because her attitude towards her squad members and the community never falters (unless you drop the N bomb lol) but no all jokes aside jynxie is a very informative general who has am immense knowledge to pass down to her squad and any member who asks and if jynxie can't find the answer which is rare she will get the answer from someone. A true inspiration to anyone KSI Captain KSI Siggy BANSHEE ES 2nd Cpt link to forums- @KSI Siggy Reasoning why they deserve this For me being a recent addition to banshee ES and the officers staff the first person who would reach out was Siggy and not just for the inevitable welcome message but for knowledge so he can be the best he can be and soak in as much knowledge he can to better himself and the squad. Fully deserving of this award and may I add a great future leader of KSI

    Founder Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSIxROMEO 7 (Founder - DM) Link to forums account - @KSIxROMEO 7 Reasoning why they deserve this - Romeo deserves this award because he has been working his butt off doing everything he can for DM in order to make it an awesome home for everyone. He is always working, whether it be irl- or KSI- related. Romeo is almost always the first one on top of clearing recruits and I don't know how he does it! In addition, he is an Acting General over one of our squads and has been working to get the squad back on track. Even though he's super busy all the time, he manages to make time to hang out with all of the squads in DM. Romeo is constantly party hopping trying to attend as many gamenights and hang out with as many people as possible. He is also very caring and when he asks, "How are you?!" he truly does care how you're doing and will sit in a party for hours trying to help in anyway that he possibly can. Romeo is a wonderful leader that everyone in DM respects! Co-Founder Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Dragons 7 (Co-Founder - DM) Link to forums account - @Dragons 7 Reasoning why they deserve this - Dragons is always there to answer any questions that may arise to the best of his ability. If he doesn't have the answer to your question, he will find the answer for you. He's worked hard training our newest General and getting him all situated throughout this month. Dragons is an overall nice guy and I know the members of DM admire and look up to him. General Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Joe 7 (General - DM/Sinister) Link to forums account - @KSI Joe 7 Reasoning why the deserve this - What can I say about Joe that I haven't already said before? He's truly an amazing General. He's someone that everyone should look to if they're ever wanting to be a General one day because he's the best, literally. Joe has done an outstanding job with building up the newest squad in DM, Sinister. Sinister has gone from 0 to 100 real quick, well more like 50 to 90, lol. He's built up his squad so fast because everyone loves him and they want to be around Joe; he's nice, caring, and always there to listen when someone has an issue (KSI or personal). Joe takes the time to get to know each and every member in his squad, and often refers to each of them by first name! He's the rock of his squad, he's there to help address any issues or concerns, and he's there to support his members and officers whenever they need it. Captain Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI UppishB592 (1CPT - DM/Hellborn) Link to forums account - @KSI UppishB592 Reasoning why they deserve this - Uppish has played a fundamental role in pulling it together and getting his squad back on track. He stepped up when one of the squads was going through some difficulties and transferred over to help bring it back to life. Since then, his squad has grown in both numbers and activity. Uppish puts himself out there, often mingling with other squads, as well as his own of course. In addition, he steps up and helps any member that asks questions in Discord, even if they aren't in his own squad. With help from Uppish, his squad is going in the right direction. LT Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Gallifrey 7 (1LT - DM/Sinister) Link to forums account - @KSI Gallifrey 7 Reasoning why they deserve this - Gallifrey stepped up when Sinister was in need of officers and he's been a tremendous addition to the officer staff. Gallifrey is super friendly although he can be quiet at times, but everyone in Sinister loves his company. Recently, Gallifrey's work schedule has changed and now he's been working nights. Even with this dramatic change he still makes time to host gamenights, recruit, and promote. In addition, when he is unable to get on his Xbox he uses the Xbox app to help with promotions and hang out with his fellow members. Department Member Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Soap 7 (SGT - DM/Cruelty) Link to forums account - @Soap God Reasoning why they deserve this - Soap has stepped up to become one of Productions' Editors! He's been making some sweet clip compilations for KSI's YouTube Channel. He's even taken on the responsibility of helping find and train new editors on programs that he uses so they can create videos for KSI as well. He's also been my right hand man when it comes to Head Hunters. There have been times when I wasn't available to stream Head Hunters matches and Soap was the first one to step up and take on the stream.

I just hope that one day I can be just as amazing as she is, she's such an inspiring person to look up to. She's able to balance KSI and family life like it's no problem. I cant thank her enough for what she has done for me,Angel's and most importantly her division. So on behalf on everyone in ES thank you for everything it is that you do. General Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Nagisa Gen ES Link to forums account - @KSI Nagisa Reasoning why the deserve this -well the question should be why doesn't Nagisa deserve this because its impossible to answer, there are so many reasons as to why Nagisa deserves this. Well firstly Nagi has been there for me since day 1 of me being in KSI, hes been so understanding and so patient with me at times when Ive needed it. And hes been there for me when i needed him most. As I've been here I have watched him move up in the ranks and I must say,there's nobody that deserves it as much as this guy. He works so hard to make Angel's a better place for all the members and I couldnt ask for a better Gen. Nagi is such a great role model to all his members and i totally look up to him,he's so hard working and dedicated to what he does. I definitely look forward to continue to watch him move up the ranks as it's so deserved. So thank you on behalf of all angels for just being the hard working guy that you are,you are more loved and admired than you know,and I hope one day you'll see just how much you've touched people.
