November 20th 2005 saw the realisation, and the birth of a dream. On November 20th 2005, Veto was born.
One year on, the corporation moves from strength to strength.
As with the establishment of any corporation, setbacks, delays and problems occur. As a team, a collective and moreover as a family, Veto have endeavored and suceeded to overcome any barrier that has stood in our way.
During a year of activity our corporation has undergone many changes, achieved many objectives, made many enemies and of course, a close group of friends with whom we’ve flown into the melee. To those who have fought and stood or fallen beside us, you have our eternal thanks, and our gratitude.
Veto, like the few corporations that survive their fragile first year as fully active combat outfits, is a testament to the fact that perseverance sacrifice and teamwork prevail, no matter how harshly an organisation has the odds stacked against it in a hostile environment of thousand man alliances, blob warfare and a sheer game of numbers.
In the last year our corporation has seen many faces, and fought many wars. From our days as an 8 man high-security terrorist outfit, to our return to basics, piracy in the border regions of New Eden, when our roster increased six-fold after a surge of applications on announcement of our return to outlawship.
We then saw subsequent attacks on Ushra’Khan and defense when agressed by the Interstellar Starbase Syndicate in retaliation.
From there Mercenary contracting began and one year on the core of Veto, our members, the living breathing assets that make our corporation what it is today, still fight with the pride they did a year ago.
For this I thank each and every one of you who has fought under the banner of Veto, past and present. This corporation’s success is not based on any one member’s drive or goal, but the common goal of our entire roster, and the endless devotion that members of our ingame family have shown to making our corporation as close knit as it is today.
I for one am proud to be a part of Veto, and to be flying into a second year of membership as the leader of what is my eyes, the finest group of players in Eve-Online.
Here’s to many more years of the same.
Long Live Veto.
