Sir knight Michael Appling of Assembly 3239 Portland received a call from his son (stationed in Afghanistan) on November 15 to tell him he was okay. Turns out part of the Oregon Guard was in a firefight at one of the gates of their base. He and 2 others were wounded. Robert's and one other were fairly minor, a third is being flown to Germany for surgery then home to the States for recovery. Prayers are requested for the three wounded but most of all prayers are needed every day that our Oregon Guardsman will be safe and return home.
Please pray for the health and comfort of Brother Dick Paradis (former FS of Corvallis 1785) who has an aggressive cancer. He saw the Oncologist on November 12th to chart a course of action. Operation is at this time is out of the question. Dick's many years as a very active Knight including Fin. Secretary and State Warden certainly merits our prayers!
