It is with great sorrow that I must report that Brother Charles Engle Jr, has passed away.

Brother Charles was a long time member of Missionary Ridge Camp 63, member of the SVR, a past Camp Commander and three time Dept. of TN. Department Commander. Brother Charles helped form two TN. camps and was presently Missionary Ridge Camp 63 treasurer/secretary. Please take time to say a prayer for the Engle Family. Brother Charles will be greatly missed.

Subject: Necrology

Geoff,
Please pass this notice to the camps.

Brother Frank Harned PDC died in his sleep Tuesday night 25 August 2015.. Frank suffered a massive stroke ten years ago and had been in poor health since then. He and his wife, Rita, moved to Florida to live with a daughter. Frank was the sponsor of three camps, Missionary Ridge, Taylor and Fort Sanders. He was a master recruiter as he signed up almost two hundred brothers during his active career.

Frank formed three Sons of Veterans Reserve units which then activated the Seventh Military District. Frank served the District as it's first Commander with the rank of Major until his stoke.

Frank Harned, as a first "generation" member of the Department of Tennessee has left an indelible mark on our Order.

Many of us brothers had our love of the Sons instilled in us by Frank and for that, Frank, we are indebted.

Fraternity, Charity and Loyalty

Hello Brothers,

Hello Brothers, Saturday's meeting went well and I would like to thank everyone who attended. I was glad to see that Brother Charles Engle was healthy and able to attend. We were fortunate enough to have two new members and one returning charter member join us. I would like to welcome Gary Knoss, John Sims and John Brooks to the Missionary Ridge Camp 63. We have one future member whose paper work is now being processed and at least two future members who are working on their papers. Our next meeting will be Saturday November 07, 2015 at Wally's at 1:00 pm. Also remember that you are all invited to our house December 12, 2015 for our Christmas party.

Hello brothers of the SUVCW Missionary Ridge 63 Camp, we have had a couple of productive weeks lately. Two weeks ago we held a yard sale and raised $373.00 for our camp. On Memorial Day we held our annual Memorial Day ceremony in Ringgold then we represented the SUVCW joining the American Legion in their annual Memorial Day ceremony in East Ridge. The day was concluded with a visit to the Chattanooga Confederate Cemetery where two Union Soldiers are buried.

Our next event will be Saturday June 13, 2015 at 2:00 pm at 7723 Dalton Pike S.E. Cleveland, Tennessee. "No Man's Land" is a roadside Historical Marker dedication with the James A. Garfield Camp #1, SUVCW of Baltimore, Maryland. We have been asked to support the Garfield Camp. Tennessee Department Commander Mike Downs will provide the invocation. I hope everyone will try to make this event.

For more information visit our camp website.

Hello brothers of the SUVCW Missionary Ridge Camp #63. I would like to say thanks to everyone that was able to attend the Memorial service we had this past Saturday at Kirklin Cemetery. I personally felt the event went very well. Missionary Ridge Camp #63 and the Andrew Jackson Penny Chapter of the NSDU were well represented. We had Elliott Worland from the N.B. Forrest Camp #3 of the SCV, who supplied both Union and Confederate flags

And, we had several guests including former Commissioner William Cotton, State Representative Joanne Favors, Lookout Mtn. GA. City Council member Taylor Watson and a Chattanooga Police Officer. Thanks to Harvey for letting me impose on him as Chaplin.

On another subject, at our last camp meeting and at the cemetery on Saturday we discussed having a yard sale with monies raised going to our chapter. Although we never got the idea to a vote, I am going to act upon it myself. On Saturday May 23 St. Elmo has its yearly community yard sale so, I will set up and all money will go to our chapter. Alma and I have been getting donations from friends so, if any of you have any items you would like to sell you can drop them off at my house or call me to pick them up. Again, all money raised will go into our camps treasurer. If anyone would like to set up at my house, you would be welcome.
