It is my sad duty to report that Past Commander-in-Chief Fred H. Combs, Jr., a tried, true and faithful member of the Lincoln Camp No. 100, Department of New Jersey, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, was on 23 December 1996, called by our great Commander to the Grand Army above. Wherefore, in testimony of his loyalty to his country and her glorious principles of freedom; of his private character as a citizen, and as a true and loyal Brother of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, I hereby direct that all Camp and Department Charters should be draped in mourning for a period of thirty days as an expression of our regard for our fallen Brother. Resolutions of respect may be forwarded to Brother Combs' family at the address below.
