In Memory

The Seelsorger would like to remember in gratitude the many brave men and women who have served this nation in the various branches of its armed forces.  God has graciously used their sacrifices to keep our nation safe and secure from its enemies, so above all our thanks ascend heavenward to the Heavenly Father who has provided such protection.

In particular two veterans are remembered here, one being my father, SSG  George S. Engebretson (Ret), who served this nation for 20 years from the 40's through the early 60's.  His service encompassed two wars, World War II and the Korean; and SMSgt Robert E. McBride (Ret), my father-in-law, who served this nation for 20 years from the 50's until the early 70's in the U.S. Air Force, encompassing the Vietnam War era.  Both of these men were highly decorated veterans who were immensely proud of their service and of their country.   They have since passed away and their legacy is left to those who remain.

Requiescat in pace....
