Dustin Goss was a Germanijan/Delveran politician and military serviceman. Goss served as the acting Deputy of the Province of Germanija until May 2016. Goss was also the Platoon Sergeant of B-Company, 1st Platoon in the Grand Republican Army, which was the first DAS unit based outside of Missouri.

Career

Military

Goss was granted the rank of Corporal in the Delveran Armed Services (Grand Republican Army) in July 2015, and served in B Company, 1st Platoon of the Delveran Infantry Regiment, under Christian Newton. Soon after, in September, 2015, he was promoted to the rank of Sergeant (E-4), and became the Platoon Sergeant of B-Company, 1st Platoon (B:1). He attended frequent training exercises, and helped train recruits of the Germanijan Provincial Militia until his resignation from the military in May 2016. Rejoining in December of 2016, Goss is now Stationed at Fort Tudor, FL for 3 Years.

Political Career

Goss was a Germanijan citizen when the province was first founded on July 26th, 2015. On August 8th, 2015, he was selected personally by Governor Christian Newton to serve as the acting Deputy of the Republic of Germanija. His political career ended when he gave up his position in May 2016.

Controversies

Goss made an abortive attempt to create a separate micronation, located in the U.S. state of Florida. It was named "Talamh na Laochra," which roughly translates to "Land of Heroes" in the Irish language. Talamh na Laochra was disbanded after about two weeks, and Goss pledged to remain loyal to the Grand Republic, and to the Province of Germanija.

In early May 2016, Goss failed to maintain contact with the Chamber of Deputies or fulfill his duties as a representative of Germanija. On May 6, he was indicted by the Supreme Justice of the Delveran High Court for dereliction of duty. On May 7, he expressed his desire to leave the micronation, resulting in a revocation of his citizenship for a 6 month period, after which he would be able to reapply if he desired. He has since rejoined and taken a position once again as a Delveran ranger.[1][2]

Heritage

Ethnically, Dustin is English, Irish, and German. He claims to be "a Rebel at heart," because of his Confederate lineage.
