    In a first for the Cav, a civilian has been recognized for his service to the unit with a decoration. JB is a player who liked playing on our public Tactical Realism 1 (Tac1) server and was interested in helping make it better. In January with the assistance and cooperation of CW2.Dakota.N, they began working on the missions on Tac1.

    At that time, we were struggling to get anyone playing on the server at all. Together, their efforts resulted in the Tac1 server getting almost 60 people on it every day for at least the past 3 months.

    Both Dakota and JB have been extremely diligent with updates and changes to keep it fresh. They have taken our community's feedback seriously and respectfully and amended missions as required. Because of this, CW2.Dakota was recently awarded the Meritorious Service Medal. Today, JB has been awarded the Civilian Superior Service Medal.

    Once again, thank you to both CW2.Dakota and JB for your hard work and dedication to our community!

    Signed,

    History has been made, I believe this is the first ever Civilian medal awarded for the 7th Cavalry. And there is no one more deserving of it than JB.

    Thanks for all your hardwork!
    Playing on Tact 1 Server has always been more enjoyable when you are online.

    Well, thanks a bunch, 7th Cavalry. That's a very nice thing for you to do, and I absolutely appreciate all the supportive and appreciative posts here. Actually, I WAS working on the scripts rather extensively today. A new SpecOps system is coming, with new mission types. It should breathe some new life into the game for the specops guys - for a while, anyway.

    Thanks on my end go to 7th Cavalry for running the Tac 1 server. When I started playing ARMA, I hopped around a bit looking for a server worth playing, and when I found Tac 1, I knew I was all set. It's been the only server that I've gone to for the past two years or so, and even kept playing right through the recent quiet period - which was actually a whole lot of fun. We ran small infantry operations in the obligatory heavy fog and had a blast.

    Thanks especially to the MPs for their hard work in keeping Tac 1 a sane place to play online.

    Ultimately, thanks to Dakota for roping me into the project, and for being the one that guides the work that I do behind the scenes. Without that guidance, the mission systems would probably be a fairly formless pile of code.

    Oh, as for membership, I just don't do gamer organizations anymore. But thanks for the thought.
