General Order #6

Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War and its 6600 members salute the Boy Scouts of America on their 100th anniversary. “Celebrating the Adventure and Continuing the Journey” is a compatible theme for both our organizations.
Lady Baden Powell challenged the Scouts to “Go deeper, go deeper into the well of the spirit of scouting and bring the living spirit of scouting more and more into your lives; into your community; into the life of your great and lovely land; and spread it wider and deeper into the hearts of men.” Scouting met that challenge and is an integral part of the American experience.
For many of us Green Bar Bill, Boy’s Life, camping, patriotism, the Boy Scout Law and Boy Scout Oath are the foundation of our adulthood.
We are proud to participate in the Boy Scout SUVCW Eagle Scout certificate program and enjoy the comradeship of our two organizations.
Our mission is to Honor the Union soldier and sailor that preserved the Union and on this occasion let us Honor the Cub Scout Den leader, the Venture crew leaders, the Boy Scout Troop leader, the volunteer and professional staff of Boy Scouts of America and most importunely your organizations mission and goals.
We tip our Kepi’s to the Boy Scouts of America.
Ordered this 11th Day of November, 2010.
