Favorite Scripture

John 3:16
It is the reason I can be assured Eternal Life so I don’t worry about life’s problems

Why I chose to be a Chaplain
I had an opportunity to be counseled by my military chaplain, after a particularly disturbing mission.  After I was asked by Art Long to consider being a chaplain, and following much prayer by Myra and me, I felt God was calling me.
