Beware of Email Scammers

We have been made aware that scammers have been attempting to steal money from various organizations and members by sending emails that claim to come from an officer of the organization and requesting the recipient of the email scam to send either cash or gift cards for some made up cause.

Here is a partial email that contains part of the scam email messages:

“I need your assistance, are you available? I’m out of town, I need you to handle this for (they place the name of the organization here). We need some gift cards for donation to Veterans at Hospice Care and welfare with patients …”

The scammers will word their email scam messages in various ways, but the general idea of the scam remains similar.

DO NOT FALL FOR THESE EMAIL SCAMS!

If you receive an email like these or similar scam emails, DO NOT click on any links in the emails and DO NOT click on or save any email attachments. Delete the email.

Cleaning Union Headstones

Recently, the Lt Col Elihu Hutton Camp 569 SCV started cleaning the headstones of Union soldiers, as part of our respect of all American soldiers, whether they are Confederate, Union or soldiers of other American conflicts.

One of our first cleanings was the headstones of Jesse F. Phares, who served as a scout for the Union army, and the headstone of his wife, Lucinda Phares. We used D2 Biological Solution to clean their headstones, which is the same cleaning solution we used to clean Confederate headstones. Continue reading “Cleaning Union Headstones”
