General Orders No. 9

1. I have noticed three illegal Camp Flags in the last month. What is an illegal flag?

2. As for the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (SUVCW), the Constitution and Regulations states that the National, Department, and Camp flags are yellow, red, and blue, respectively. The official SUVCW flags may be ordered from the Ohio Department who has the National Licence from the National Council of Administration to produce them from June 2000 until June 2002.

3. If the camp decides to make its own flag, it must be of blue material with the SUVCW badge. The badge can be ordered from Senior Vice Commander-in-Chief Ed Kreiser at a cost of $45.00 each.

4. At this time I am directing all Department Commanders to contact all Camps within their respective Departments and by order of the Commander-in-Chief remove from use all illegal flags from Camp meetings and all outdoor activities as of this date, June 4, 2000.

By Order of:
Danny L. Wheeler

Todd A. Shillington
National Secretary
