It has come to the attention of the Commander-in-Chief that at least one Camp has formed a Camp Guard that allows non-members of the SUVCW to be members of the Camp Guard. This can not happen. Accordingly it is my ruling that membership in a Camp or Department Guard is limited to Brothers of that Camp or Department and that any Camp or Department Guard that includes members who are not Brothers of the Camp or Department must immediately correct this situation by either having all non-members become Members or Associates of our Order or to drop all non-members from the ranks of the Camp Guard.

By Order of:
George L. Powell

Edward Krieser, PCinC
National Secretary
