General Order #8

Series 2007 – 2008

17 November, 2007

 

  1. Through the course of events that manage and rule our lives and this Order we at times have the opportunity to meet those who stand out above others. This is the case with Brigadier General David V. Medert, Commanding Officer Sons of Veterans Reserve.

  2. General Medert assumed Command of the Sons of Veterans Reserve on 29 July, 1997 with a strength of roughly 500 men. Over the past 10 years, he has built the Sons of Veterans Reserve to be a unit of over 1100 troops. He has also built an infrastructure to accommodate this growth and streamlined the operation of the same.

  3. General Medert has requested to be relieved of his Command and moved into the Inactive Reserve Corps of the Sons of Veterans Reserve so that he may pursue the Office of Commander in Chief at the 127th National Encampment of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War in Peabody Massachusetts .

  4. I hereby officially accept the transfer of Brigadier Gene ral David V. Medert as Commanding Officer Sons of Veterans Reserve.

  5. The National Military Affairs Committee has recommended that Colonel Robert E. Grim , Deputy Commander of the Sons of Veterans Reserve, be appointed as Commanding Officer of the Sons of Veterans Reserve.

  6. I find that this recommendation is well taken and approve the appointment of Robert E. Grim as Commanding Officer of the Sons of Veterans Reserve, at the rank of Brigadier General, commencing immediately and ending on 16 November 2010 or until properly relieved.

 

So ordered this 17th day of November, 2007;
