Wow. That is an incredible truth and statement. We are so blessed. Thank you, dear Chaplain, for your warm and thoughtful heart. God bless you. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

PS. I know that is a weird thing to say to anyone in a war zone but even Paul, who was in chains for Jesus, would say the same (if they had Thanksgiving Day. Instead, they had Thanksgiving Day Everyday!). I'm sure you understand as well. May His Peace that the world does not understand be with you always.

Thank you, sir, for your service.

And thank You, Lord, for giving us Your Son, so that we may know You.


Chaplain, I just found your blog, and I am going to read every single word...and then recommend that all my friends do the same.

I thank God for men like you, who bring such glory to His name in the midst of bitter circumstances. Thank you so much for your service to this country, to those of us at home, and to your fellow soldiers. May He bless you and your family and bring you home soon, safe and victorious.

In His Service

I just ran upon your blog, and want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. My son is in Iraq, and it comforts me greatly to know men like you are there for him, to guide and be of influence to him. I pray daily for that guidance, and here your are to show me yet again that God hears our prayers. Thank your wife for me as well, her sacrifice is great, and I know she is very proud of you. God Bless, Jo Ann

Why I Write...

  • On 22 November 05 I received orders to report to Ft Shelby, Mississippi. I have been ordered to join the 1st Brigade Combat Team from Minnesota. I will be the chaplain of the 1-125 Field Artillary Unit, which is being re-tasked as a convoy security unit. We will leave for Iraq in the spring of 2006. Here is the story of my journey.
