Section 1: To all Camp Commanders and Department Officers:

Today, exactly 140 years ago, Commander in Chief, John Alexander Logan gave to the Grand Army, his General Order #11 creating Memorial Day. Today, our very Own Commander in Chief, Charles E. Kuhn Jr. has issued his General Order #17 reminding us of our obligation to this Historic Holiday. I follow that tradition.

As it is our First Fraternal Obligation to keep and observe Memorial Day, and every Camp should have at least one Memorial Day event scheduled, Let us do all we can to have every brother participate in a Service of Memorial. Please send the attached letter to every Brother, either by mail or electronically.

As few fraternal organizations have ever created a National Holiday, it is truly our duty to carry this on, so that future generations know it well.
