  1. It is with great pleasure and pride that I present, with the approval of the Council of Administration, the Meritorious Service Award with Gold Star to PDC Todd A. Shillington, Department of New York, for his tireless efforts, maintaining contact and working with legislative, Department of Defense, law enforcement and news media personnel, ensuring that a Civil War cannon was returned to the Kendall, New York, cemetery.
  2. It is apparent that his actions also resulted in several similar memorials, throughout the nation, being investigated for ownership and potential return to their original sites.
  3. PDC Shillington's vigilance and perseverance serve as examples to all.

Ordered this 5th Day of May 2005.

By Order of:
Stephen A. Michaels

Michael S. Bennett, PDC
National Secretary
