The camp is named in honor of Henry Casey, a Civil War Medal of Honor recipient. The SUVCW is a congressionally-chartered organization dedicated to preserving the heritage of the Grand Army of the Republic (G.A.R.) and the men who served in the Union military forces during the Civil War.

Shane Milburn who also serves as the adjutant of the SVR 3rd Military District, which encompasses Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and Michigan. The national commanding general of the SVR is Robert E.
