A note about Flag Rallies

The following is from a dispatch sent by Mech Cav Cmdr Wayne Fuller, but I could not have said this better myself:

In regards to all of the rallies and gatherings going on.  I would ask you to use you common sense about it.  If there are hate groups, or anything that may insite people in the wrong way or lead to confrontation…  LEAVE.  Divisionally we are going to support these as long as the above is observed.  This is also a chance to educate younger people and to recruit for the SCV.


Flags to be Lowered

Request From Heritage Operations
July 22, 2015
Due to the resent murder of the unarmed marines in Chattanooga, Tennessee, I’m asking that you lower your flags to half staff in their remembrance until the 30th of July. Our hearts are sorrowed by this event.
Thank you very much.
Chairman Tom Bird

Communications Warning for All SCV Members


Simply stated, WE ARE UNDER ATTACK.  I use these words very conservatively, but if you have email, a website, twitter, or facebook account, you are vulnerable!  We have had several compatriots in the Arkansas Division whose emails were hacked.  We have had several facebook accounts hacked.  The Arkansas Toothpick was shredded by hackers, and this is no coincidence.

We must have communications to survive and the enemy knows this.  There are a few steps you can take to protect your communications.  First of all change your passwords IMMEDIATELY! Use special characters such as !@#$%^&*()_+ as often as you can.  Use small case AND lowercase letters and numbers in your passwords.  For example, a strong password would like like this: ROnKellEY23!$

After your passwords have been changed, the next step is to get a notepad to keep track of your passwords, as you will need to change them OFTEN, perhaps once a week or every other week.

The Arkansas Toothpick has installed major software to upgrade security.  If you own a website, I suggest you do the same.  Remember without communications, we cannot survive.  At your next camp meeting please distribute this info to your members.




Tomorrow the U.S. House of Representatives will be voting on whether to permanently ban the Confederate Flag from all Federal cemeteries regardless if Confederate soldiers, sailors, marines or civilian are buried there or not.

I urgently request that you contact a US Representative today and tell them to vote no and ask for a written reply back.  Please use the links below to help with the phone numbers of your members of both the Senate and House.
