It is I, the legendary Ligit Pengy, whom speaks to you today. Some people doubt that I actually exist. They think I’m a figment of Pungy’s imagination. Well the answer is, I’m not. Now, onto the point.
Often times, I’ve been asked to explain to someone what GD really is. Beyond the battles, uniforms, graphics, etc. GD is, in a way, different from other armies. I’ve asked Pungy, why it is that GD hasn’t died, even though they’ve gone through some terrible times. His reply was this:
“GD is a group of friends, who (by and large) respect each other. GD is united by more than a globe hat or text on the ranks page. We’re united by a mutual sense of friendship, and that’s what makes us strong. It is this mutual sense of friendship, that makes GD the best army on Club Penguin”
As you can see, even Koala can’t believe it. But GD is alive. And to tell you the truth, we’re lucky to be. As Pungy said, what’s kept us alive is not ranks or graphics or plans. What’s kept us alive is the dedication of our troops.
To be frank, GD beat the odds. GD should have died in the early stages of creation. But we didn’t. Why? I said it earlier. Pungy said it earlier. But one thing in particular has given GD perhaps the biggest break we ever got. What is this?
Today I was surfing the web, when I came across Redd’s retirement post. The post struck me hard, and inspired me to write this post.
As a retired GD Owner, member of the Medal Committee, and recipient of the Medal of Early Dedication, I’m proud to present, with agreement from Pungy, to give Redd
The Medal of Honor
In case you don’t know what this is, this award is awarded to those who “Go Above and Beyond the Call of Duty.” In GD, the medal is awarded to the “Above and Beyond” leaders, who’s reign in GD was one that echoed in an important era of GD history. While Redd’s reign as leader was not very impressive, due to the fact that he was bust, Redd’s time as 2ic was his best era, and perhaps the best GD has seen.
Pungy and I present you with this award to say thanks for all you have done. Without you, GD would have died in February. Without you, GD wouldn’t have been here to see the triumph over the Flyers. Without you GD wouldn’t have been here to see our rise into the Top Ten. Without you, GD wouldn’t have been here to see us defy the odds of depression and stay alive. Without you, GD wouldn’t have been here to begin their Top Ten streak. Without you, GD wouldn’t have been here to see the victory over the Watex Warriors. Without you, GD wouldn’t have been here to see Pungy appoint Negi 1ic. Without you, GD wouldn’t have been here. Words, memes, and medals cannot describe your service to GD. In fact, the only thing that can come close, is our hearts. So, as Ligit Pengy, I want to formally say “Thank You.”
Today GD, and forever, we tip our Globe Hats to Redd Kool: The Man, the Myth, the Legend. Thank you, and God/Allah/Whoever you believe in, bless GD!
