It is my sad duty to report that Past Commander-in-Chief Fred H. Combs, Jr., a
and faithful member of the Lincoln Camp No. 100, Department of New Jersey,
Union Veterans of the Civil War, was on 23 December 1996, called by our great
Commander to the Grand Army above. Wherefore, in testimony of his loyalty to
country and her glorious principles of freedom; of his private character as a
as a true and loyal Brother of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, I
direct that all Camp and Department Charters should be draped in mourning for
of thirty days as an expression of our regard for our fallen Brother.
respect may be forwarded to Brother Combs' family at the address below.
By Order of:
Alan R. Loomis
