Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War and its 6600 members salute the Boy Scouts of
America on their 100th anniversary. “Celebrating the Adventure and Continuing the
Journey” is a compatible theme for both our organizations.

Lady Baden Powell challenged the Scouts to “Go deeper, go deeper into the well of the
spirit of scouting and bring the living spirit of scouting more and more into your lives;
into your community; into the life of your great and lovely land; and spread it wider and
deeper into the hearts of men.” Scouting met that challenge and is an integral part of the
American experience.

For many of us Green Bar Bill, Boy’s Life, camping, patriotism, the Boy Scout Law and
Boy Scout Oath are the foundation of our adulthood.

We are proud to participate in the Boy Scout SUVCW Eagle Scout certificate program
and enjoy the comradeship of our two organizations.

Our mission is to Honor the Union soldier and sailor that preserved the Union and on this
occasion let us Honor the Cub Scout Den leader, the Venture crew leaders, the Boy Scout
Troop leader, the volunteer and professional staff of Boy Scouts of America and most
importunely your organizations mission and goals.

We tip our Kepi’s to the Boy Scouts of America.

Ordered this 11th Day of November, 2010.
