Commission--Brig. Gen. Stefan Reuter

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.

Moderators: Derald Riggs, Joe Meyer

News of General Reuter's promotion reached us at the AotT's Memphis Headquarters only yesterday, where it was received with much satisfaction. As the commander of the XV Corps' Second Infantry Division Brigadier General Reuter has shown himself to be a most deserving officer; and it is with great anticipation that we await his eventual elevation to that of a major generalcy, a promotion that is certain to come in due time. But for now his first star sits nicely and solidly upon each of his shoulders.

Congratulations, Stefan!

I wish Dierk had been CoA during any of the times I grabbed a new star - his proclaimations will make your chest swell!

Gen. Perrenod,

I still have copies of all your promotion certificates and awards that occurred while I was AotS Citations Officer from 2001-2007 if you'd like to have them.

It's the actual text of commissions as issued during the ACW. I believe the only difference is that actually the commissions were countersigned not by the G-inC but by the Secr. of War. It's been a while since I created this template so I'd have to look it up.
