Ministry Report
Following retirement as an Army Chaplain in 1984, I served in the Oklahoma State Prison System as a chaplain, and then after another retirement, served as a volunteer chaplain until 2015. Moved from Atoka, Oklahoma, in 2017, to Sanford, NC, to be closer to family in old age. Joined Cool Springs Baptist Church where I sing in the choir and teach Sunday School. I also sing in a community choir that ministers to local health/retirement facilities.

East Alabama Chapter

The East Alabama chapter of USACCRA met on July 30 at Olive Garden in Oxford. We welcomed into our fellowship Chaplain (MAJ) Marshall S. Chavez, a National Guard Chaplain on active duty assigned to Fort McClellan. As his presence lowered the average age of our group significantly, we enjoyed the personal contact with one who is following a path many of us have trod in the past.
