A very special mass...

Tonight I had the singular pleasure of heading up to Fort McCoy in Tomah, WI to celebrate mass with Colonel Greg Rosenmerkel, CMH '84, and members of the 819th Red Horse Squadron which he commands.

Red Horse is at Fort McCoy for its last segment of training before deployment to Afghanistan. With no reservist unit bringing a priest to Fort McCoy this weekend, it was my honor to celebrate the Eucharist with men and women of Greg's unit.

A picture with some of the officers and senior enlisted of the 819th.

Who would have thought that when we graduated together in 1984 our paths would come together in this way.
I promised Greg that the prayers and best wishes of the entire CMH community will go with the Red Horse Squadron while they serve in Afghanistan.
