AotP Webpages updated for August/September 2017

Postby krmiller » Sun Oct 22, 2017 3:34 pm

My apologies for not updating the webpages last month but they have now been updated with the latest ranks, OBD and awards.

I include here a copy of the Monthly report.

For September the AotP completed 3 battles, Maj. Gen. Osborne and Brig. Gen. Christian Hecht gaining Major Victories and Col. Alvin Baker a Draw for a record of 2-0-1-0-0 making the army record for 2017 12-1-7-4-3.

OOB Changes

No Battle Ribbons, the victories won by Gen. Osborne and Gen. Hecht being too short to have awards.
Maj. Gen. Osborne’s 3 Major Victories represented half of the games completed by the AotP this quarter and ¾ of it’s victories and he is awarded the Sheridan Combat Medal. Allow me to buy the first round to celebrate the occasion.

We still haven’t heard anything from the Cabinet about Col Alvin Baker’s promotion to Brigadier General.

Finally I wish to make a personal comment.

I have been a member of the ACWGC for 18 years having spent over 15 of those years in some form of administrative position. I commanded the AotS and the AotP. I had the distinct pleasure of forming the VIII Corps, leading it for 2 years and watching it grow into one of the finest commands in the ACWGC and I also commanded 3 different divisions as well as spending 8 years at the Academy training some 38 cadets. However all things must come to an end and I intend to go on the Reserve/Retired List at the end of 2017.

I bring this up now because for the past several years I have been serving as Chief of Staff and handling the AotP webpages for the last 3 army CO’s. If anyone is interested in the job I can provide copies of all the current webpages which you are free to use if you wish. They have extensuive notes throughout that should assist anyone with a basic knowledge of html code to maintain them as is and you would be free to change them as you saw fit provided you continue to provide recognition of previous work as I have done. In addition I have several MS Word and Excel Files I used over the years to assist the Army CO in preparing his reports. These include an Excel file that can take the data from an Army Games Report at the DoR and determine which games warrant a Battle Ribbon and which ribbon it is. This file covers all but about 40 scenarios listed in the DoR and those that show Other or Campaign Scenario in the Scenario block of the report.

Anyone witrh a basic knowledge of html who is interested in taking over the Chief of Staff position can contact myself, Gen. Osborne
or Gen. Meyer for further information.

General Miller
I'm saddened to hear that you are stepping down as CoS for the AotP, anyone taking up that position has some very big boots to fill.
I thank you for your long years of service for the AotP, the Union and the club.
With regards
