General Order #12
27 December 2011
The purpose of this General Order is to announce leadership changes relative to the Remembrance Day Committee. PCinC Bud Atkinson and PCinC Charles Kuhn, who have been serving as Co-Chairs of this key committee, have announced their respective resignations. Their resignations come after a successful Remembrance Day 2011 and their desire to give the new leadership as much time as possible in preparing for Remembrance Day 2012.
PCinC Atkinson has helped coordinate Remembrance Day programs for over 20 years and has been principally involved with coordinating and planning the activities at the Eisenhower Inn and Conference Center, including the National Civil War Ball. PDC Robert Petrovic (Col., Chief of Staff, SVR) is appointed to serve as Co-Chair of the Remembrance Day Committee and assume the responsibilities previously handled by Brother Atkinson. Brother Petrovic’s appointment is effective immediately.
PCinC Kuhn has been a key figure in working with the borough of Gettysburg in planning the annual Remembrance Day Parade. PCC Henry Shaw (Brig. Gen., Deputy Commander, SVR) is appointed to serve as Co-Chair of the Remembrance Day Committee and assume the responsibilities previously handled by Brother Kuhn. Brother Shaw’s appointment is effective 31 December 2011.
I can’t thank Brothers Atkinson and Kuhn enough for their time and effort over the years in planning and executing Remembrance Day activities. Through their efforts, Remembrance Day has become one of the more prominent programs associated with the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War. I am confident that Remembrance Day will continue to flourish under the leadership of Brothers Petrovic and Shaw. Please give them your full support.
Ordered this 27th Day of December, 2011.
