Gentlemen, Sirs! <salute>

Pleased to see two very deserving Southern Officers receive their Stars!

Both Officers are from the VMI Class of 2020!
<SALUTE>

Much obliged, suhs!

Granny wuz so pleased by my recent promotion that she laid out a heapin' table of cat's head biscuits, sausage gravy an' sweet tea. I must confess that I did as much damage ta tha fixins as one man can possibly do. Granny wuz always a great cook!

It would seem that I will soon get ta make General Swanson's fine acquaintance in the next round of tha current tournament.

I must admit that it still seems ta be a mystery ta me why we is afightin' one anotha when they is soooo many Yankees still left ta bleed.

I'm looking forward to it.

My scouts have revealed that I will have a very difficult task ahead of me in that match but I shall try and make it entertaining.
