Cadet Griffith <salute>, welcome to the club and to the Confederacy. If you have hankering for adventure, womanising, drinking to excess and if you have the time, putting the odd yank to the sword, then point your horse towards the west when you graduate.

It is great that we are getting more recruits, although you will find that the ones joining the CSA are a more refined handsome lot :mrgreen:

Gentlemen, Sirs! <salute>

It is my pleasure and honor to announce the arrival of the fifth Cadet for the VMI Class of 1862!

Cadet Steffen van Nix, Image "I am a son of Alabama living in the swamps of North Florida. I am sure you have heard of the Battle of Olustee, I live not too far from there and have been there several times." He is a United States Marine Corps Combat Veteran, "did 5 years as Infantry and Security Forces (Fleet Anti-Terror). As for the Middle East, I spent nearly half of my five years there lol."

"I only recently in the last year began playing the HPS/JTS games, since it is the closest I have found to the old classic "Civil War Generals II" that I used to play til the disc gave out when I was a kid lol!"

He has JTS Campaigns: Antietam, Atlanta, Chancellorsville, Chickamauga, Gettysburg, Peninsula & Shiloh!

Cadet Steffen van Nix will get his training under the instruction of VMI's Sharpshooter Coordinator Colonel Paul Swanson (#1).

Respectfully,

Your Obedient Servant,


General Nick Kunz
