The duties of the Chaplain are to pronounce the invocation and the benediction at Legion meetings, as well as perform such other acts as would fall within the realm of his/her office as the spiritual leader. They should conduct the memorial service when such is needed.
As the Legion is composed of men and women of different creeds and faiths, the Chaplain must be a person of tolerance and sympathy toward all.

Chaplain’s Corner Post 291
June is already here. “Time flies when you’re having fun!”
Gratitude is a theme I will never grow tired of. It is foundational to a rich spiritual life. June has it’s days of gratitude. I will just name a few.
June 6th, D-Day reminds us all of the great sacrifice our veterans made not just for our country but for the freedom of European occupation by the Nazis. I remember watching documentaries and film from WW2 not realizing how young those soldiers were until I became of age to join the service.
Take time to give God thanks for the sacrifice of so many veterans.
June 14th is Flag Day. Flag Day Started June 14th 1777. This commemorates the adoption of the Flag of the United States of America. The American Flag stands for freedom, liberty and human rights.
We can also celebrate Father’s Day on June 16th. Some of us had great fathers, some of us had absent fathers, some of us had fathers we wish weren’t our father. Whatever your relationship was, there have been father figures that poured positive traits and love into our lives. Be grateful for those men that blessed us with good morals and quality of character.
June 25th is the start of the Korean War in 1950. Take time to thank a Vet, especially those that served in Korea.
Last but not least is June 26th. This is our Post 291 Office Installation dinner. Be grateful for the leadership that has served us for the past several years and pray for the new leadership to bless Post 291 and carry on the legacy of loving our veterans and supporting their needs here at Post 291.
For God and Country, Chaplain Ken Wilson.
