What This List Is All About.

In as much as our newsletter is published quarterly, many events arise that need attention now instead of three months from now. To this end, this list is established.

Standing Prayer Requests.

* Those in the military services in harm's way for their safety and safe return.

* Those who have been injured in battle or in support of our troops for their rapid recovery, comfort by the Holy Spirit and peace.

* Our country that it may stand as a bastion of peace, generosity and freedom for the rest of the world.

*Our government that it may govern wisely, lightly and in accordance with the Constitution and the will of the people who lend it some of their power.

John Opocensky

John Opocensky, one of our oldest and dearest Minemen, was put back in hospital yesterday, October 20th, with blood clots in both lungs. This is a result of the fractures he suffered in his leg. I spoke to him today and he is doing well. Wife, Kitty and daughter, Betty Sue, are with him and have confidence in his recovery. A card of cheer would probably be in order. They can be sent to the hospital at:

John Opocensky - Room 324
Trident Health System
9330 Medical Plaza Drive
Charleston, SC 29406

or to John's home at:

John Opocensky
621 Oxford Road
Ladson, SC 29456-6271

John was at our 2010 reunion and afterward, resisted going to the hospital in spite of this life-threatening issue. He enlisted in the Navy seven months after Pearl Harbor and retired in 1972.
