Special General Order #2

Series 2007 – 2008

30 April 2008


  1. It is my sad duty to report the illness of one of this organizations most active Members. PDC Bob Lowe of the Department of California and Pacific, National Graves Registration Officer. He is currently in the hospital and we hope that he will recover. Cards and letters of well wishes may be sent to his home as published on the national web site. He has requested that no one call him but if you would care to drop him a line I think that he would greatly appreciate knowing the Brothers of the Order are thinking of him. Brother Bob will have a long road ahead of him to recover from his illness and thus he will not be able to function as the Chairman of the Graves Registration Committee until he has recovered.

  2. Subsequently, I hereby relieved Brother Lowe of his responsibilities as Chairman of the Graves Registration Committee until such time as he feels that he is able to resume his responsibilities. The Committee in the interim will be co-chaired by Brother Jim Davenport, PDC and Brother Mahlon Erickson, PDC. Their contact information is available on the National web site.

  3. On another note, Sister Pat Mullinex, Past National President of the Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War, 1861 - 1865 has suffered a major heart attack while attending the Nebraska Department Encampment last Sunday. Cards and well wishes for her recovery can be mailed to the following address; Immanuel Medical Center , 6901 North 72nd Street. Omaha , Nebraska 68122 . Gifts and flowers are not permitted in this facility so please do not send any.

  4. In light of the illnesses of these two invaluable Members of the Allied Orders all Brothers of the Order are requested to include Brother Bob and Sister Pat in their daily prayers and every Camp is herby Ordered to include a prayer for their recovery at some point during their next meeting.


So ordered this 30th day of April, 2008;

Charles E. Kuhn, Jr.
