A Note From Our Commander

Thank you for visiting our site.  We try to keep it current and relevant.  So, if you have any questions or comments about the website, our Camp, or the SCV, please feel free to contact me and I will get back with you in short order.

We are a family at Camp 775.  A man does well to obtain a handful of true friends within his lifetime.  And that is just what you will find here: a family of true friends.  It has been said that blood is thicker than water.  If that blood is 'Southern Blood', then that saying is absolutely true!  Within the membership of the SCV there is true camaraderie of compatriots.

If you are like me, you really didn't (or don't) know very much about your ancestors.  If it wasn't for the hardworking and dedicated folks at the International Headquarters of the SCV I might have never known of my rich and honorable family history.  Over time, my heritage has become very important to me.  And so, I contacted the SCV, and it was the best thing I could have done!  While I'm still investigating my extensive family tree, I found out that I have several Confederate veterans in my family!

I have nothing but pride and admiration for our Confederate heroes who fought for Southern Independence.  I pray that I am able to give even a fraction of what they gave, and that I may have but a modicum of their faith in God and their belief and honor for the South.

Now, it's your turn!  If you have yet to find out who the Confederate heroes are in your past, now is the time! Visit our outstanding folks at the SCV and let them help you research your history and family tree.

We need you at Camp 775.  This country needs you to carry on your deep, rich and honorable heritage.  Your ancestors need you to keep their efforts alive!  Join us now... won't you?

God Bless You & Yours...
Deo Vindice!
James Bently Couch,
Commander Camp 775

The CSA Seal


“To you, Sons of Confederate Veterans, we will commit the vindication of the cause for which we fought.  To your strength will be given the defense of the Confederate soldier’s good name, the guardianship of his history, the emulation of his virtues, the perpetuation of those principles which he loved and which you love also, and those ideals which made him glorious and which you also cherish.  Remember, it is your duty to see that the true history of the South is presented to future generations!"
