Same against the Department of Veterans Administration in it's role in defaming Black Confederate Soldiers in Giles County Tennessee.(C. )Civil Lawsuit seeking punitive damages against the N.A.A.C.P. in it's role to destroy the membership roll in a National 501C3 NonProfit Heritage Organization by the use of defamation of character practicies.( D.)

3. Tour all SCV Camps with the express intent of increasing the membership in the National Organization.
