Grand Army of the Republic (USA veterans organisation)

The Grand Army of the Republic was a veteran association founded in 1869 composed solely of soldiers who had fought for the Union during the US Civil War and had beenhonourably discharged. As, unlike other such organisations, they refused to accept other type of members except as auxiliaries, the organisation is now defunct with the last member having past away.

Interestingly, they used medals instead of more traditional rank insignias for officers within the organisation.
