Second Lieutenant Honorable Son #2

Long time war games opponent Honorable Son #2 and his fiancee have graduated college (Roll Tide!) and will soon be married.


Over the years, Honorable Son #2 has commanded Australians in the Western Desert against Rommel, High Elves against hordes of green skins, both Union and Confederate forces, the forces of Louis XIV, star ships and forces to numerous to count.

 Honorable Son #2 commanding his Australian Flames of War Army.  You play better if you wear a hat.

I was honored when he asked me to administer the oath of office as an officer in the U. S. Army.  I was even more amazed that I could still fit into my uniform.



So here's to you my fine son and future daughter-in-law.  God has truly blessed us and I look forward to our last game before you start your life with your beautiful bride to be.
