On behalf of the National Organization of the Sons of the Union Veterans of the Civil War I want to offer the condolences of our membership to the victims and to the families of the victims involved and to express the outrage of all the members of our Order to the attack today on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, DC. At this time we must come together as an Order and a Nation. I there by urge all Brothers to:
1. Fly the flag of our Country as a sign of solidarity with the innocent victims.
2. Attend the church of their choice and offer their own prayers for those involved in this terrible tragedy.
3. Those Brothers who are able to please donate blood.
I hereby order that all Camp and Department Charters be draped and all members are to drape their membership badge for the next 30 days in memory of the victims and their families.
By Order of:
George L. Powell
Edward Krieser, PCinC
