When Prince Karl signed the Army Act into law creating the Principality's armed forces, he created, Colonel Erik von Falkynhuack, his former commanding officer in the Austrian Army as the first General Officer of the Huack Army, bestowing upon him the rank of Major General. General von Falkynhuack was born in Huack in the village of St. Jamestonia in 1824. Pictured below is a photograph taken just after his promotion ceremony at Fortenbras Palace in Alshirejvo. General von Falkynhuack will assume the role of Army Commandant and will be responsible for the organization, operations and training of the new army. Second only to Prince Karl in the Army's hierarchy.
Also, the rank of Lieutenant General has been replaced with that of Colonel-General. Thought I would publish this before we leave for Lake Degray!
