The articles below deal with your chief concerns as a member of this unit and describe the ideal ethos each member should live by and uphold at all times during their service with the Unit.

|7TH CAVALRY GAMING REGIMENT GENERAL ORDERS|
A general order of indefinite duration may be referred to as a standing order. Standing orders are necessarily general and vague since the exact circumstances for execution occur in the future under unknown conditions. For example, in most military agencies there is a standing order for enlisted men to salute officers. The officers are required by the same law to return the salute to the enlisted person; however, the name of each enlisted man is not explicitly named in the order, nor is the name of each officer, nor is the exact time which the salute should occur.
The following is a numbered list of all General Orders of the 7th cavalry. These orders apply to all members of the cavalry regardless of any rank, positions, or game the member belongs to.
General Order One

Scope of the Teamspeak 3 Code of Conduct
This document is to serve as a complete compendium to the rules of the Teamspeak 3 server. If it is not listed in this document it does not exist and is not enforceable. Each rule will have specific definitions of the rule as well as elaborating the specified intent of the rule along with examples to help clarify the rules true intent. By the end of this document, no questions should be remaining as to what the rule meant and how it applies to the player.
Public versus Private Channels Definition
The following are considered public channels:
The following are considered private channels:
Specific definitions of the Teamspeak 3 Code of Conduct
Presence in TeamSpeak.
Spirit of the Rule: This is to facilitate accountability of action, communication and enable the Admin staff to immediately recognize outsiders posing as 7th Cavalry personnel.
Absence and inactivity.
Spirit of the Rule: This is to ensure that people who are away are clearly identified as such to prevent people looking for help from approaching them and wasting time trying to contact them.
Behavior and Language in Public Channels.
Spirit of the Rule: The intent of these rules is to ensure that interactions between members are respectful of one another.
Behavior and language in Private Channels.
At the discretion of the channel owner, the above public rules may be loosened as follows:
Spirit of the Rule: This is to create a place where people must opt in to a looser set of rules regarding language.
Push-To-Talk vs. Voice Activation.
Personnel Identification on TeamSpeak.
TeamSpeak confirmation of orders.
Spirit of the Rule: This ensures no imposter in-game will cause us to kick or ban a player.
Inviting the public into TeamSpeak.
Military courtesy is the bedrock upon which unit discipline is maintained. We demonstrate courtesy in the manner in which we address members of superior rank. Remember that in the 7th Cavalry Regiment, everything is earned, and so we must respect the achievements that earned a member the rank they currently hold. There are three 'settings' that determine how we address each other.
During activities in an official setting, ranks shall be observed, whether talking to or about a member. e.g. "Sergeant Yahoo just told me that..." OR "Yes Sir" when responding to an officer. When an officer enters a channel in an official setting, the senior member will acknowledge the officer by addressing them "Hello Sir" or "Good evening Sir". This ensures the members in a channel know an officer has entered the channel and creates a break in the conversation to allow them to speak. You may be instructed by a specific NCO or Officer to drop ranks in an official setting. This applies only for that specific NCO or Officer and in that instance.
Ranks are dropped in game or during operations for the sake of brevity.
Private Setting: In private channels, ranks may be dropped at the discretion of the members in the channel when not on official business.
Spirit of the Rule: In official settings, we observe the proper customs and courtesies. Otherwise, ranks can be dropped as the situation dictates.

While direct messaging is not view-able by anyone except the two participants, communication between two people (regardless of membership) who are both members of the 7th Cavalry Regiment Discord must conform to our Code of Conduct, specifically:
6. Private Discord Servers
While we cannot and would not stop people from creating private servers, no private discord server is permitted to be created or exist for the purpose of anything related to the performance of Cav duties. Use the official Cav discord for any Cav business. On unofficial discord servers we cannot enforce our rules, and therefore a situation can develop which subverts our rules, regulations, code of conduct and/or the Chain of Command.
7. Group Notification Spam
Due to how discords permissions are laid out, we cannot give specific people the ability to 'ping' a group, such as @arma or @squad. As such, it means it's all or nothing. With the ability to send notifications being a helpful hand for gathering members for events, we cannot disable it. You may only use group 'pings' with an 'agreeable length of time between subsequent pings. Agreeable is defined as what the ranking officer in the discussion says, as required to keep spam down to a minimum.
8. Contraventions of These Rules
As with all other rules and regulations in the 7th Cavalry Regiment, the consequences for contravening these rules will be relative to the rule being broken and the severity of the misconduct.

|7TH CAVALRY GAMING REGIMENT UNIFORM CODE OF MILITARY JUSTICE|
The Uniform Code of Military Justice, is the foundation of military law in the 7th Cavalry. All members of the unit, including retired members, are subject to the UCMJ.
The UCMJ codified for use by 7th Cavalry was adapted from the United States Military Uniform Code of Military Justice. Initial work was performed by 2LT Whitey Mack and was approved for use on July 12th 2008. The source document is UCMJ 64 Stat. 109, 10 U.S.C. ch.47,
Go to: Article 15 Procedures
Go to: Courts Martial Procedures
Note that Article 134 encompasses offenses that are not specifically listed in the manual for Court-Martial: all disorders and neglects to the prejudice of good order and discipline in the 7th Cavalry, all conduct of a nature to bring discredit upon the 7th Cavalry, and crimes and offenses not capital, of which persons subject to this chapter may be guilty. Article 134 is often considered to be a "catch-all" for various offenses that aren't necessarily covered by the other articles in the UCMJ. It reflect acts that are not specifically listed, but nevertheless committed, by 7th Cavalry personnel that negatively impact the service, unit, etc.
The tune emerged in the late eighteenth century as a favorite drinking song of rich young roisters in Limerick. It obtained immediate popularity in the British Army through the 5th (Royal Irish) Lancers.
A very early reference to the tune appears in The Life of the Duke of Wellington by Jocquim Hayward Stocqueler, published in 1853. He describes the defence of the town of Tarifa in late December 1811, during the Peninsular War. General H. Gough, later Field Marshall Hugh Gough, 1st Viscount Gough, commanding officer of the 87th Regiment (at that time known as the Royal Irish Fusiliers), after repulsing an attack by French Grenadiers "...was not, however, merely satisfied with resistance. When the enemy, scared, ran from the walls, he drew his sword, made the band strike up 'Garry Owen', and followed the fugitives for two or three hundred yards."
Garryowen was also a favourite in the Crimean War. The tune has also been associated with a number of British military units, and is the authorised regimental march of The Irish Regiment of Canada. It was the regimental march of the Liverpool Irish, British Army. It is the regimental march of the London Irish Rifles (now part of The London Regiment (TA)). It was also the regimental march of the 50th (The Queen's Own) Foot (later The Queen's Own Royal West Kent Regiment) until 1869.
Garryowen became the marching tune for the 69th Infantry Regiment, New York Militia, (the famed "Fighting 69th" ) in the mid-1800s. The "Fighting 69th" adopted Garry Owen before the Civil War and recently brought it back to combat in Operation Iraqi Freedom.
It later became the marching tune for the US 7th Cavalry Regiment during the late 1800s. The tune was a favorite of General George Armstrong Custer and became the official air of the Regiment in 1867. According to legend it was the last tune played before the Battle of the Little Bighorn.
The name of the tune has become a part of the regiment, the words Garry Owen are part of the regimental crest.

We are ambushed and surrounded, Sgt. Flynn
You are cut, and scalped, and battered, Sgt. Flynn
