Public Affairs Committee Update

1 year ago

Over the remaining months of 2022 you will see a change in how the newsletter is distributed to our membership. Gavin McIlvenna (1997-98) will be stepping down as the Public Affairs Committee Chair and Newsletter Senior Editor. Daniel Yeadon, Life Associate Member and former Old Guardsman, will be taking over as the Public Affairs Director and will guide our social media footprint starting on January 1, 2023.

For those who do not have email addresses on file with the Society, you will still receive a newsletter in the mail. The content and frequency may change or be reduced.

For all other members you will need to check the “News” section of the main website for updates and information that you would normally see in the newsletter. These may arrive at the end of a quarter, or as the information becomes available.

Our Webmaster is working on a link where you can sign up and receive notices via email when news is published on the website. Until then, visit: Society of the Honor Guard | News ( for the latest news, and of course keep an eye on our FaceBook page: Society of the Honor Guard, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier | Facebook
