ATTACK ON AMERICA

 

By the authority vested in me as Commander of the Department of California and Pacific, by the Department Bylaws, the National Constitution and Regulations, and National Policies, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1: Yesterday the United States was faced with a national tragedy. Two airplanes crashed into the World Trade Center, and a third into the Pentagon, in an apparent terrorist attack. Our first concern should be to check the welfare of our fellow Brothers and their families who may have been impacted by this catastrophic event, then to take every precaution to protect our family and friends from further attacks.

Section 2: In the strongest terms I condemn these heinous attacks on the United States. There is no justification for such a senseless assault against innocent civilians. This was not a spontaneous crime, but rather a very carefully planned and prepared plot to execute countless American citizens.

Section 3: Please join with Rosemary and me in offering our prayers and heartfelt condolences to the Brothers and other American citizens who have lost family and friends in this tragedy and for those in need. I also ask that you thank the national community of emergency workers fighting hard to rescue our fellow citizens.

Section 4: In honor of, and remembrance of these fellow citizens I am directing that all Camp Charters be draped in black for the next thirty (30) days. Furthermore, I request all Brothers who can, to fly the Flag of the United States of America at half-staff.

The foregoing Department Order is proclaimed this 12th day of September in the year of our Lord two thousand one, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred twenty-fifth, in the City of El Cajon, County of San Diego, State of California by Bob Lowe, Commander of the Department of California and Pacific, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War.
