 Duties of the 2nd Lt.Commander are recruiting and membership retention.Wildman has always carried SCV applications and recruiting material wherever he went and

 has been Camp Mcadory's biggest recruiter.He will fill this role perfectly. We are proud and honored to have Wildman in this position. Congratulations!

 The liberal agenda of destroying our history,both American and Confederate,has angered the patriotic people of this country.

The historical genocide of this country is backfiring and serving to unite the patriotic of this nation.Thanks to the 1D members who participated at the booth.
