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
Greetings to our Post 291 family,
The “light at the end of tunnel” is getting brighter by the week. We can anticipate our move towards normalization of our daily lives. Please continue to pray and do what is needed to minimize the effects of Covid-19.
We celebrate and commemorate our comrades who have served in the military and since passed. Memorial Day is Monday, May 31st. Remember to wear your Poppy throughout May in honor of those who served in our Military. I wear mine in honor of two men who served in WW2, my father and my father in law. Both served in the Navy Air. As a ‘baby boomer,” you may have had family members that served in WW2, whether military or civilian, everyone played a part in WW2 to win and make the world a better place for liberty.
We are called to remember those that served our country in war and peace. Their service has kept our country the “home of the brave and the land of the free.” We salute all those who have been counted in Post Everlasting. One day we will join you and hope to hear those words of comfort. “Welcome home, good and faithful servant.”
Another person, 2000 years ago also made a statement of memorial. Jesus of Nazareth told his disciples when they were celebrating Passover as Paul writes in I Corinthians 11:25-26 “In the same way, after supper He took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.”
Whether you see the Lord’s Supper as a mystery, mandate or memorial, all are invited to the table He has prepared for you.
As we remember our fallen comrades this Memorial Day, let us also remember the one who has risen to give up true liberty and freedom.
For God and Country
