Surviving a tour of duty in the Federation force known as Raczak's Roughnecks almost always ensures an operational command posting elsewhere. The Roughnecks have a long and proud tradition of producing the hardest and most capable veterans of any combat unit, due to the near-continuous action that the armada sees. It is hardly worthy of note that the Roughnecks have the greatest attrition rate of any operational Federation unit. Up until the recent events in Auroran space, there used to be some contention between Admiral Raczak and the Wild Geese stationed on Spacedock 6, but since then relations have mellowed considerably. In fact, it almost seems like Admiral Raczak places more value on his relations with the Wild Geese than with Federation Naval High Command.
