Lt. Gen. Russo Appointed To XVI Command!

Official ACWGC Union Army General rank promotion announcements, command appointments and UA awards are made on the Parade Ground. The Mess Tent serves as a casual place for all club members to socialize, drink or have a meal, as long as they spend Yankee dollars! And, as much as we like to accommodate our Southron brethren, they will not be able to vote in any polls held here, or gain access to the restricted areas.

Lt. Gen. Russo Appointed To XVI Command!

Postby Joe Meyer » Sat Sep 30, 2017 4:48 pm


The following is read from the AotT Record Book:

"Lieutenant General Pete Russo, AotT CoS

"Upon receipt of these orders you are relieved of duty as the AotT Chief of Staff and directed to assume command of the XVI Corps, Union Army of the Tennessee.

"Signed: General Jos. C. Meyer, ACWGC,
"Temporary Commander, Union Army of the Tennessee"

General Russo's re-assignment to the XVI Corps is attended with an abiding appreciation for his voluntary services as the Army of the Tennessee's Chief of Staff these past five years, a remarkable effort which greatly assisted and complimented the efforts of General Peterjohn and did much to contribute to the fine record this field army has achieved. Pete's constant attention to detail and ready service in that role has marked him as an important and valuable asset to this organization. In recognition of his service as the AotT CoS the following commendations are made to him:


The Union Army's Outstanding Service Medal (1st Award)
The Union Army's Exemplary Service Award (1st Award)
The Union Army's Honorable Service Award (6th Award)
The Union Army's Good Conduct Award (3rd Award)

Officers and guests are invited to indoors to the Mess Tent to help celebrate this occasion and to wish Lt. Gen. Russo well in his new command!

Present, ARMS!...Order, ARMS!
General Jos. C. Meyer,
Union Army Chief of Staff
Commander, Army of the Shenandoah
(2011-2014 UA GinC)
