  • A Chaplain's Story--From Civil War Battelfields to Tobyhanna

    Jul 9, 2009

    TOBYHANNA ARMY DEPOT, Pa. - I recently read an article printed in 1914 about one of the early Tobyhanna chaplains, Rev. Father Thomas Sherman, son of Gen. William T. Sherman of Civil War fame. The article was very brief, simply stating that the chaplain was leaving for New York City on that day, that he had been the chaplain for the Fourth Regiment of the Missouri National Guard, and a veteran of the Spanish-American War. The article also mentioned that Thomas accompanied his father on his Civil War campaigns. This scanty bit of information piqued my curiosity - I wanted to know more about Rev. Father Thomas Sherman. I was unable to uncover any details of his time at Tobyhanna; however, I did discover some of the details of his life.

  • 'God Reached Down and Protected Me'

    Jul 9, 2009

    For many people, reaching a mountaintop often brings to mind the beauty of a sunset, the promise of a majestic view and the hope for a better future. But, for Nate Self, a mountaintop symbolizes two starkly different things - the terror of sudden death at the hands of an enemy, and God's promise to be with His followers through the toughest battles. A West Point graduate and a former Army Ranger captain, Self was at the top of Takur Ghar Mountain in Afghanistan in 2002 when enemy fire killed seven of his fellow Soldiers in a battle that is now known as the Rescue on Roberts Ridge. But he left that mountain knowing that God was with him and his men during the heat of battle. "Whenever I see a mountain I am reminded of Bull Hill at West Point and reciting Psalm 121 as we climbed it," he said. "The first verse always stuck with me. Whenever I saw mountains that was God reminding me He was there."
