A Welcome From the Chief of Heritage Defense
Permit me to welcome you to this site and to introduce myself. I am Frank Earnest and I will be serving as the Chief of Heritage Defense for the Sons of Confederate Veterans from July 2008 until July 2010. I hope you have come to this site by mere curiosity. However, if you need help in defense of our Southern Heritage, you have come to the right place.

Heritage Defense in the Sons of Confederate Veterans is the responsibility of the Chief of Heritage Defense and the Heritage Defense Committee. We are supported by the Division Commanders along with their Division Heritage Defense Chief's. We then report to the Commander in Chief and the General Executive Council.

While it should be the duty of all Sons of Confederate Veterans members to defend our Heritage, there is a proper way of doing it. Do not try to take on violations and fight them by yourself. These matters can be much more difficult than one might think. Those of us with more experience are here to help you. As with all other concerns, you have a Camp Commander, a Brigade Commander and a Division Commander. They will advise you and seek our help and council.

It is unfortunate that our Heritage is so often under attack. We share a proud SOUTHERN HISTORY and only wish to honor and commemorate it. If intolerant individuals or organizations try to prevent you from your RIGHT to do so, we stand willing and ready to assist you.

It is my honor to serve you in the position of Chief of Heritage Defense. I am always available to you and your concerns.

Please email me if you have questions.
