A special offer for Memorial Day

Tags: Military chaplaincy, military chaplains, Memorial Day

I love when people express their gratitude to those who serve in the military in concrete ways. If we're at a restaurant, my husband will pick up the check of anyone in uniform or wearing a veteran's cap. I've seen many people reach out to shake the hand of a person in uniform. These little actions count big time!

My way of thanking those of you serving in the military is to offer the Kindle edition of my book, Miracles & Moments of Grace: Inspiring Stories from Military Chaplains for the special price of $2.99 from now until Memorial Day.

Head on over to Amazon to take advantage of this offer. I can't wait for you to read the stories of these wonderful chaplains who care for the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of our men and women in uniform.

A tribute on Memorial Day

On this Memorial Day, I wanted to share an article from a Charlotte, North Carolina, newspaper, on the role of the military chaplain.

The article describes a Memorial Day tradition at Arlington called "Flags In," in which members of the military, including chaplains, place flags on the graves of 220,000 soldiers. Chaplains themselves can be laid to rest on Chaplains Hill in the cemetery. Monuments there date from 1926.

The article quotes one chaplain at length, Lt. Col. Keith Croom, currently the senior Army chaplain at Arlington National Cemetery. Chaplain Croom and I have had several conversations. He is being honored for his outstanding service. Congratulations, Chaplain Croom!
