General Scout,
congratulations on your assumption of command. The GAF is in good hands. If I may be of service, I am at your convenience.

P.S. to General Scout: I have been retained to appear next Saturday in Kimball, Nebraska at a fundraiser for the Kimball County Historical Society "Buffalo Bill and the Fifth U.S. Cavalry". The Missouri Scotsman is to be in attendance since his wife Jennifer is in charge of this event. Is he to be taken into custody and transported somewhere? My Scouts Rest Ranch at North Platte could serve as a temporary holding facility.  I stand ready to accomplish this task if so requested. I await your reply.

Terry,

If by chance to happen to run into him, ask him where he has been the last year!  He ain't under arrest...yet!

BTW, I issued a extra ration of hardtack to everyone.  Steel Horse Baily made me a nice hardtack cutter.  Gopher Grease and I think we should do one meal at the GAF Muster according to the regs.   One is about all that bunch  could handle. ;D

Congratulations, Sir!

I hope Terry Lane will correct me if I pass on this information and it's wrong, but I do believe that the planned "Buffalo Bill" meeting with Missouri Scotsman's wife, Jennifer, was snowed out.

According to Brisket, Terry was snowed out but the shindig went on otherwise and Gen. (are Bvt.'s in the GAF for life like they were in days of yor?) Scotsman was master of ceremonies.

A good question and one I've been pondering on the last few months since I got our first resignation from a Department Commander. 

To be honest though, I haven't worried much about it as I have more pressing priorities in the GAF at present. 

I decided to table it until I get all the Department Commanders in place.  They will form my advisory committee - which I think will be called a War Council as was done in the 19th century - and we can decide how we will deal with such weighty issues.

My intent is to have the Department Commanders provide me with the pulse of their departments with regard to changes, direction, general policies, etc within the GAF.
