Appointment--Maj. Gen. Frank DiNola

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

Maj. Gen. DiNola,

Congratulations, sir! By current Union Army Regulations you are, as a corps commander, now eligible to appoint three additional members to your personal staff. However, such appointees may not be of the following classifications: females, persons incapable of distinguishing the colors grey and blue, and those under 3 feet of height. You will receive all monetary payments accorded to your position from this day forward when the war has been brought to a successful conclusion. You will also be required to provide your own ink for your printer and may not use government lumber to construct your own outhouse.

Good luck in the performance of your duties. I will be able to provide you one set of nearly fresh saddle harness, should you so require, Frank, for each case of captured whiskey turn into this office!
General Jos. C. Meyer,
Union Army Chief of Staff
Commander, Army of the Shenandoah
(2011-2014 UA GinC)
