Arizona Chapter

 

 

“The Arizona Chapter met in Tucson at the Bisbee Breakfast Club for a no-host lunch on Dec. 12th.  Seventeen people attended and started planning to welcome everyone to Tucson for October’s USACCRA Tenth Bienniel Reunion.  Lots of our Arizona group are willing to help, including this great Tucson/Sierra Vista group in the picture. “

As our summer event, we will join the celebration of the Chaplain Corps anniversary hosted by the Chief of Chaplains on July 31(tentative date).

Two years later I retired as Executive Director of the Council of Churches of the Ozarks based in Springfield, Missouri. This past April Julie and I returned to Oklahoma. We are now members of the First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) where Julie loves singing in the choir. She also sings in the Oklahoma City Chorus. I continue to work as a volunteer with the Moral Injury Institute. MII serves veterans, law enforcement, first responders, and others suffering from trauma-related moral injury.

A full table of active and retired ministry team folks met on Wednesday, Sept 25, at the

Ft Myer club to share our joys and challenges and to begin the talk about the next

Regimental Reunion in Tucson, AZ 27-30 October 2020.  This was our first attempt to

meet on a Wednesday and once again some folks had conflict.  We may be learning

that there is no perfect day.  BUT we decided to try 5th Wednesdays to avoid some of

the 1st and 3rd, 2nd and 4th Wednesdays on which members had conflict.

Next meeting, January 29, 2020, at the Myer club @ 11:45 a.m.  Tentatively also 4/29, Chaplain

Anniversary in July, and 9/30.

Chaplain Wayne Stinchcomb made a brief presentation on the VA Vet Centers

which offer community based care to a host of veteran issues, including PTSD and

suicide prevention.  Feel free to contact Wayne if you have questions
