General Orders

What are General Orders?

General Orders are directive from command detailing key communications to their unit. These General Orders may pertain to a policy or procedure, promotion or award.

These documents are particularly useful to researchers attempting to track down promotions and awards to the individuals they are researching.

The 90th Division Association has a large, albeit incomplete collection of General Orders. These documents are digitized and available for your convenience.
