Pennsylvania Cadet

Postby S. Fausel » Sat Oct 04, 2014 9:35 am

Hi All,

My name is Scott, and I am a 51 year old veterinarian living in Reading, PA. I am relatively new to strategic gaming, but enjoying the genre. My current games are JTS Campaign Gettysburg (where Lt.General Pete Russo is currently me at Emmitsburg :o ) and AGEOD's AACWII (where I am currently besting Athena in the full campaign near the end of 1861 :D ).

Other games (non-CW) include Birth of America 2, Battles from the Bulge, and Hearts of Iron III (just picked up).

Other interests include duplicate bridge, chess, electronics, music, and of course history.

Glad to be part of the group!

Nicely done, Scott, and welcome to our little corner of the world! Here's hoping that your training at the UMA will be an enjoyable experience! You may as well grab a beer from the bar (cadets are not allowed anything stronger) before you rush back to class. Gen. Russo has been known to issue punishment tours to tardy cadets!

Welcome aboard, Cadet Fausel.

You can be a triple threat: veterinarian, surgeon (when needed) and field officer. :roll: :lol:
