1. It is with a heavy heart and profound regret that I announce the death of Past Commander-in-Chief George W. Long answering his last roll call on 18 April 2001.
2. PC-in-C Long served this Order with distinction and as its Commander-in-Chief, 1990-1991 from the Pennsylvania Department. Many will miss his wit and humor.
3. I hereby authorize Sr. Vice Commander-in-Chief, George L. Powell to represent the Commandery-in-Chief of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War at the funeral of PC-in-C Long.
4. I hereby charge all Department Commanders to drape Department Charters in his honor and to require that all camps do likewise for a period of 30 days from this date.
By Order of:
Edward J. Krieser
Todd A. Shillington
