The direct male descendants of the age of 18 years or more of deceased eligible officers or of a brother or sister of any such officer (collateral descent).
Associate Companions must be male persons of the age of 18 years or more who are not known to be eligible for Hereditary membership in the Order, who subscribe to the Preamble, Principles, and Objects of the Order, who have demonstrated a serious interest in the War of the Rebellion, and whose membership will advance the objects of the Order.
