We were saddened to learn this past month that Major Billy Graham’s father, an Army veteran, passed away while Billy was deployed to Afghanistan. Billy was able to return home in time to conduct his father’s funeral and sent this note of thanks for our prayers in his behalf:
“Thank you, everyone, for all the encouragement and prayers during this past week. The Lord was faithful in allowing me to minister to my family and to honor my father’s service to our great country, which he never spoke of much. I had the opportunity to spend time with my sibling, which has not happened in far too long. I also had the chance to see some extended family that I have not seen in decades. The Lord was able to take a tough circumstance and create wonderful connections. Thank you all again for being there when we needed it most. Technology at its finest allowed Robin to share your emails and words of comfort as they arrived and when I needed to hear them the most. The Eagle Commission and this Band of Brothers and Sisters is amazing!”
–CH Billy Graham, 101st Combat Aviation Brigade, Task Force Destiny, Afghanistan.
Bill was selected for promotion to Major while at Fort Irwin, CA. Soon after his promotion, the family moved to Fort Campbell, KY where he is now a Brigade Chaplain with 5 other chaplains to supervise. He loves his new assignment and being back at Fort Campbell. He has also been selected for the resident program of the Command and General Staff College (CGSC) at Fort Leavenworth, KS. This is a very high honor and speaks eloquently of Bill’s military record. Your prayers for Bill and Robin are deeply appreciated.
