I'm aware of three:
  1. Dark Fall, which is included in Uncompromising Honor print edition, but is missing in the ebook version
  2. Our Sacred Honor, the one in the Infinite Stars
  3. Recruiting Drive, the one we've just discussed

All three are related to Eloise Pritchart in some way.

Our Sacred Honor is also in a Baen Anthology Book:

Google Books has an extensive preview of this story (they alternately show and hide pages from beginning to end), to give you an idea if you want the whole thing.

There are also a handful published in the free books at Baen. Joelle Presby wrote a short story about a new female Grayson ensign. David wrote some details about Sphinx for new immigrants post-plague, and some letters from Stephanie Harrington to some old friends on Meyerdahl. Also there are some in the SITS and Jayne's books, those are available for $$ online at drive through RPG.

As an aside, more general purpose-ish, if you ever read David Drake’s Ranks of Bronze, there is a spin-off by RFC titled “the Excalibur Option.” It feels very Weber techno-war compared to Drake...but that’s beside the point. It’s the first place you see the names Nimue and Merlin in reference to a genocidal alien federation.

In which edition of _Uncompromising Honor_ did "Dark Fall" appear? I checked my copies and I don't see it.

Besides the other stories that appeared on the Baen homepage (and later in various _Free Stories_ compendiums), there is "Requium" by David Carrico which appeared in _Grantville Gazette 86 (in the Universe Annex)

I don't know, I'm just repeating the information I found online. My edition (ebook) doesn't have it either. Anyway, use the link above to read it.

I printed the page to PDF and then used an online conversion tool to import it to my Kindle (Kindle doesn't make reading PDFs easy).
