The "ranks" are based on the total number of posts you make in the Forum. Posting in the Off Topic Section doesn't count. The pictures, or Avatars, can be selected in the User CP. ACG/WHQ has a pretty wide selection to choose from or you can import your own.

Always feel free to ask questions. We were all Raw Recruits at one time!

I've lived in the Dallas area since 1981, Mesquite since 1990. But I grew up in Connecticut...

The promotions are fun except when you go from a Command Sergeant Major to a Second Lieutenant...felt more like a demotion!

A Naval Captain, maybe...

Hello everyone.
My name is David (but you've guessed that already.)
A DAK Vol II link led me to this site.
I am interested in WWII Western desert wargaming, and am in the process (over 14 years in the process) of designing my own, so I may well be posting research questions on actual T.o&E (as opposed to "on paper") Dates of arrival, reinforcements etc etc.
I am 41, married to a lovely lady (Rebecca) & am the proud father of 2 beautiful children, Abi (18) Will (15). (Will is in Belgium on a WWI history school trip right now)
I have a wicked sense of humour, and will be reading (and contributing no doubt) to any "jokes" threads.
Looking forward to getting to know you all better; soon.

Take care & God bless. Dave.

Greetings from a fellow countryman David!

Yes please!

Will it be a particularly sinister coup?
