Carl R. Moon

6th District Chaplain

Walker, MN.  56484

Home: 218-547-4608, Cell: 320-761-6962, Email:  crmoonidoc@yahoo.com

 Not a bad January so far. Just makes the winter a little bit shorter.

February 3rd is the day that we observe The Four Chaplains. These were four Army Chaplains, one Methodist, one Jewish, one Roman Catholic, and one Dutch Reformed; who selflessly sacrificed their lives to save others during WWII. They were on the Army transport Dorchester when they were torpedoed by a German submarine. These four Chaplains gave up their lifejackets to others. There were 902 on board; only 230 were rescued.  If your Post is able to; please donate funds to the Four Chaplains Memorial Foundation.

I am very pleased to announce that Frank Grittner has been endorsed as a candidate for District Chaplain for the2021-2022 year. Frank is just getting involved in the District but he has been a great asset and hard worker for our Post. He is a Past Commander and Adjutant of the Kriesel-Jacobsen Post. He has volunteered numerous hours preparing and serving meals for various Post functions.  I know he will also be a great asset to our District.

May God Bless You all.
