Carson, Iowa 51525
Greetings from the Deptartment of Iowa's Junior Vice Commander. I would like to extend a welcome to those of you who wish to join our Order, or those who merely seek information. My job is to assist you in finding you a camp to join. Or, better yet, getting you to start a NEW camp. To join a camp, merely contact a member of the camp you wish to join, or if you don't know who to contact, contact me and I'll get you set up. If there's no camp nearby, you can start a new camp with as few as FIVE members. In such a case, all should have lineage to a Civil War veteran. You do not have to have a Civil War ancestor to join a camp. If you do want to start a camp, I can pass on your request to our Camp Organizer. We will do all we can to assist you. You can contact me by phone at (712) 484-3647, by email at email@example.com or by mail at P.O. Box 42, Carson, Iowa 51525. I look forward to hearing from you.
