Our camp will soon be placing this flat stone at the grave of a Justin, TX citizen who was a founding member of the Rober E. Lee UCV Camp in Ft Worth, TX. His grave is in the old IOOF Justin cemetery on Hwy156. Also Kyle Sims purchased two more grave markers that we will also be setting in the ground in 2018.
After a fall our brother and friend who we love, Dan Hays was hospitalized and then sent to a rehabilitation center where on the morning of June 19th he lost Consciousness and they had to rush him back to the ER. He never recovered and on Wednesday June 20th we lost a great Southern soldier. Dan was a member of the Gano Camp and also a member of the Gano OCR chapter. He will be missed. Rest in peace Dan.
