Article by DAV Dept. Chaplain, John Hicks

I would like to thank you for electing me as your chaplain. I ask you to remember during these trying times, after the elections are complete, God is still on his throne.

Psalms 47:8 – God reigns over the nations, God sits on his Holy throne.NASB

Because he reigns and is still on his throne, we as American’s have rights. You have the right to Vote and I highly encourage you to exercise that right.

You as fellow veterans have fought and others have died for these rights and rights for all Americans.

Please before you vote examine each candidate and pray and after you decide, vote and encourage others to vote. As a nation, we can continue to move forward. That we continue to support our Veterans and fellow Americans as we defended the rights of Americans and please exercise your Right to Vote.

Whoever is elected you support the new President Elect until they are sworn in and Pray and Support them after they become President in Jan 2017.

Our motto is Fulfilling Our Promises to the Men and Women Who Served.

I also believe this to include defending and exercising our rights as Americans to go out and vote.

I look forward to the future through eyes of a servant and as fellow veteran. Please feel free to contact me by phone, mail or email with the contact information below.
