The Union Army announces the retirement of Lieutenant General David Martin, 1/1/I/AotP, from the American Civil War Game Club. All club members are invited here to share a drink or two in his honor and wish him well.

David joined the ACWGC in August of 2012 and quickly became one of the club’s most ardent and enthusiastic supporters, a trait that eventually impelled him to assume support duties in the service of the Union Military Group. As a member of the UA General Staff and the GinC’s Advisory Group he lent his voice in a number of behind the scenes administrative consultations and deliberations. In such roles he was always cheerful and engaging, imparting thoughtful advice and comment to the subjects at hand. But it is his avid love for the games and camaraderie that sets him apart and earned him the nicknamed of “Deanno,” a moniker he enjoyed stemming from his chosen avatar of actor Dean Martin relaxing on a movie set in a Union Army uniform.

Lieutenant General Martin holds the following service ribbons: Union Military Academy Superintendent, Union Military Academy Instructor, AotP Division Commander. His commendations include the Exemplary Service Medal and the Good Conduct Medal. He holds two Union Army Combat Badges and a Meritorious Unit Citation. His muster decorations include two Union Staff Officer ribbons and seven AotP ribbons. He is a winner of the Campaign Ozark Medal and has the Five Major Victories ribbon from Campaign Chickamauga. His battle ribbons include Second Bull Run (2), Antietam (2), Lexington, Greater Mill Springs, Murfreesboro (2), Chickamauga, Gettysburg (3), Pipe Creek, Mill Springs and Port Gibson. He was a participant in the Lieutenant’s Cup Tournament (2012) and displayed his skills in six Red Badge of Courage Tournament games, gaining a RGBT Major Victory. He proudly displays the AotP Training Award. He amassed 2086 OBD Points during his career and a combat record of 33-19-45-17-105.

Gen. Martin

Having a gaming friend like you is a special gift. I treasure the camaraderie that we have shared and I want you to know that I would ride with you on any battlefield at anytime and any place as we move through an uncertain future.

I know the future is uncertain, but my friendship isn't. If you need to cancel plans, never worry. If you need to pause for bit, never fear. If you just can’t, never apologize. I am always here.

Thank you for all you have done for the Club, thank you for being a friend.

I Salute you sir!

By the way, I am still in pursuit of good Boudin. I hope for and look forward to a day when we shall share it.

Lieutenant General Martin, Sir! <Salute>

David,

Has been a great pleasure to meet you and thank you again for being my cadet instructor (April 2013). You made my entry in to the Union ranks an enjoyable experience.

I know you've got a loyalty and passion for those LSU Tigers and I wouldn't be surprised if I see you again on the battle field wearing those silly stripped pejamas. :)

Take care and wish you all the best in the future. Hope to hear from you again.

General Martin / David,

Praying for your health, sir, and more enjoyable days ahead.
You will be missed, and we all truly do hope you can "un-retire" soon.

Grace and peace,
Scott

<SALUTE>

General Martin,
I'm sure I speak for all of the I Corps when I say that you'll be missed and that we look forward seeing you back in the saddle again.
We thank you for your service to the AotP, the Union and the club.
<SALUTE>
