I retired as the Installation Chaplain of historic Fort Sam Houston on 31 December 2005. I gave twenty-one great years to the United States Army Chaplaincy and competed an Army career of 28 years. Upon retirement, I fulfilled my role as Pastor of a small Baptist Church on the Eastside of San Antonio for three and half years and met the challenges of that role with zest and enthusiasm. However the LORD offered me an opportunity that only He could give and prayerfully having considered the Spiritual impact this new opportunity would offer, and I accepted the direction the LORD was taking me. On 14 September 2009, I became the Supervisor of 7 outstanding employees who comprised the Fort Sam Houston Casualty Assistance Center (CAC). My days as the Senior Army Chaplain of Arlington National Cemetery and as the Deputy Command Chaplain of the Military District of Washington were about to be tested and utilized for the benefit of others. Dealing with grief and bereavement and the delicate “no fail” operation of making notification to the next of kin of our Soldiers has been the most rewarding experience that my ministry to God has ever achieved. This job proves and tests daily the front line of how the Army puts in action its care and compassion for the Army Family. I am the first Army Chaplain Retiree to be given the opportunity to serve in the prestigious role as the CAC Chief. I am thoroughly enjoying the role and the challenges I face daily trying to ensure the Army continues to provide the BEST service it can with a fervent consistent care and attention to our Army Veterans, Active Duty Soldiers, and families. I thank my God for the ministry He has given me and I encourage others to seek roles in the Survivor Outreach Services (SOS) program or in the Army Casualty Program.
