The LCMS as part of our mission has a Ministry to the Armed Forces.  As we prepare to celebrate Memorial Day and remember the sacrifices of so many in the Armed service over the years we should remember our chaplains called by our church and the folks that they serve.  We also have many resources for congregation and groups that support or want to support personnel and their families.  We hope that you will remember in prayer the training and recruiting and endorsing that took place so that our 67 active-duty LCMS military chaplains could be deployed. Another 71 chaplains serve Reserve and National Guard units. We also support 22 Civil Air Patrol chaplains.
