"For Exceptionally distinguished service in Preserving the GAR Room and entranceway of the County Court House in Albany, New York. You unselfishly devoted many hours to prevent a piece of our history from passing into oblivion. Not only will Willard Camp #154 meet in the same room as the GAR, but the public will realize the sacrifices of our ancestors.
Further, under youe leadership the camp has grown to an all time high of over 70 members. This clearly displays your commitment to preserving the memory of the "Boys in Blue" who fought to preserve the Union.
