General Scott Ludwig <salute>

Generals D W Mallory and Nick Kunz submitted the following recommendation that you be awarded the ACWGC Legion of Merit.

"January 22, 2021

RE: Legion of Merit Commendation for Scott Ludwig

"Gentlemen of the Cabinet:

Scott Ludwig joined the American Civil War Gaming Club in May of 2003 on the CSA side, #CSASL893. He was trained at VMI by General Gary Cope and graduated in July and was assigned to the Army of Northern Virginia.

He became Commanding Officer of the III Corps of the ANV in December of 2005 and served for 6 months. In June, 2006 he became the Western Theater Commander serving until return to command of the III Corps of ANV in October 2009. He became VMI Deputy Commandant from April 2011 through January 2012 and at the same time ANV Division Commander of 2nd Division/ II Corps April 2011 - October 2011.

Serving again as Western Theater Commander starting in November 2011 and serving until the end of October 2013. He was also CSA Cabinet Secretary January 15 through December 15, 2014

Serving as CSA Chief of the Armies started in December 2014 running through January 9, 2021 which is also a CSA CoA Cabinet member during that time frame.

All the while serving in command positions since December of 2005 until January, 2021 he has been maintaining ACWGC Websites, providing Diplomas for VMI and Promotion Orders for the CSA since 2013. Without his technical expertise and skills certainly the CSA and the ACWGC would have been hard press to accomplish what has been the standard for the past 8 years! I certainly can think of no one else who has had a more positive effect on the CSA Side and the ACWGC these past 15 plus years as General Scott Ludwig has!"

General Nick Kunz
General DW Mallory

____________________________________________________________________________

The Cabinet unanimously agrees and, on its behalf, it is my honor and privilege to award you the ACWGC Legion of Merit Medal.

With my highest regards and respect, Congratulations General Ludwig!

Thank you all! This was totally unexpected. I appreciate the very kind words said by you all. Thank you as well to General Kunz & General Mallory for recommending me with such a nice writeup! My bigger projects & site work would've never taken off without both of your support many years ago & since! :)

I always joke around with folks that my battlefield performance is still/so awful, that the website & admin work has probably kept me in the Club! :mrgreen:

I also appreciate those who have done the work before me, especially Nick, who not only made amazing designs but has kept copies of them of which I refer to very often, even to this day! General Jeff Gray & General Jon Cuneo who's pioneering work in the early years are the deepest roots on the site today. Also to my Union friends here who have done site work over the years, each through your work have influenced mine & I've spent countless hours looking at your pages. My Union counterpart, General Meyer, who's invaluable help on a number of issues warrants deep gratitude & thanks! Christian your advice & input both here and at the NWC are very much appreciated! Blake Strickler & Bob Weir for their great graphics work for the CSA. To guys like Ernie & Pierre who cut me loose to do the work on the larger club wide pages, in all three clubs. Jaume Campderrós & Alphonse de Meré who passed along I (Longstreet's) Corps site totally intact, one of the Club's longest running pages. Somewhere in 2004 my commanders at the time, General Tony Hill & Den McBride made me III Corps Adjutant in the ANV after I stuck my nose out to help and it has been a lot of fun since!

Finally, to my longtime friend Lieutenant General Steve Kitchen, who I hope gets the chance to see this! This is for you too my friend! Steve & I did websites together for close to 10 years back in the early 2000's and I learned a lot from him. We both supported each other in our designs and work, and had the time to do so! He handed off some of the most complete records when he transferred the ANV site and the archives he maintained has truly been a rich resource of information. Steve's the original "Wizard of the Keyboard", so I share this honor with him!

Thanks again everyone, I am very touched by this and hope I have many more years of site work ahead of me. It is work truly enjoyed! 8)

Drink on me all next month!! :mrgreen:

Well deserved Suh <Salute>, I am assuming that there will be some sort of function to mark the occasion - I could always organize a small soiree, finger food, cocktails, dancing etc
