Headquarters of The Department Commander
Dear New York Department Brothers:
It continues to be my great honor and privilege to serve my
Brothers in New York State as
Department Commander, and to help honor our brave forefathers who preserved the Union.
With the end of my second term of office drawing near, I humbly offer the following
Department Orders #6 and ask your kind assistance with two very important projects that
will continue to advance the work of our Order.
Department Orders #6
March 15, 2002
1. In accordance with the actions and decisions of our 118th Department Encampment, our Department will

a remarkable and most commendable job of entering Civil War veteran graves information into our
new computer database - increasing the number of existing records from 1200 to more than 11,000!
Before we can begin to gather new information, we first need to complete entering the information that
has already been collected by our membership over the years and now exists in paper records. This
should be a fairly simple process for any Brother with a little time, a computer, and a recent version of
Microsoft Access. Volunteers will be sent a small box of paper records, a disk containing the report form
we are using, and complete instructions on what to do and how to do it. And help is always just an e-mail
(or phone call) away.
Volunteers should make themselves known to Brother Pugsley or Department Commander Bennett at
their earliest convenience so that we can complete all of this data-entry before our June Encampment.
This is what the SUVCW is all about. Your help is needed and will be much appreciated.
Submitted in F, C, and
Michael S. Bennett
