Veterans Affairs Chairman

December 2020

Many thanks to our Indiana K of C Councils, Assemblies and individual Brother Knights who put together projects to recognize the dedication of America's Veterans around this year's 11th of November Veteran's Day Holiday.   These state-wide efforts included Parish Veterans Mass, Wreath Laying ceremonies, providing Color Guards/ Marchers in civic parades, and volunteer service at VA Medical facilities.   For more than 135 years, from the founding members of the Knights who were Civil War Veterans, to the current "Warriors to Lourdes Pilgrimage", the Knights of Columbus has stood in support of the men and women of the armed forces of the countries in which it exists. 

We are collecting information on this year's Veterans Day initiatives by Hoosier Knights - and want your feedback!  That will allow us to share "Good Ideas" and thoughts on our State Website for your Council/ Assembly to consider during your Annual/ mid-Year Planning Meetings.  Please join your fellow Knights who have already provided a Summary of their Veteran's Activities.... send a short paragraph of your 2020 Veteran activity(s) to:  This email address is being protected from spambots.

Are you aware of the dire shortage of Catholic Military Chaplains to serve our military members on deployment or at their Home Station?  Next month I will provide details on that situation - and the proactive actions by our Order and the Archdiocese of Military Services to alleviate the problem.  You can be proud of what the Knights of Columbus has done to date and learn how we can help continue making progress in the future!
