From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
The Spirit paper goes over events on the Spirit of Fire. There is "The Captains Chair" segment where the captain says a few words. It also has a "Meet the Crew" section where it goes over a certain crew member per issue.
The copy of The Spirit in Halo Wars is dated July 23, 2526, however, this cannot be the case as the issue mentions casualties from the UNSC Prophecy. The Spirit of Fire arrived at the Prophecy on February 4th, 2531, meaning at earliest this issue could have been made was February 4th, 2531. According to Graeme Devine, this is probably a remnant of an earlier version of the story.
