In conjunction with Veteran’s Day (Sunday November 11) Susquehanna Valley Conservatives is honored to host retired Army Chaplain James May.
Chaplain/Captain May offers a very unique perspective on the price that has been paid for our nation’s freedom. Born in DeWitt Army Hospital at Fort Belvoir, VA he has been a “military brat” most of his life. From 1999 to 2006 he had the honor of serving as an officer and chaplain in the United States Army. During his last three years on active duty, Chaplain (Cpt) May had the very unique privilege of serving in Iraq with the soldiers on the front lines; at Walter Reed Army Hospital with soldiers who had been injured in war; and at Arlington National Cemetery for those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation and our freedom.
Chaplain/Captain May has one brother who is an army doctor and another who is an army signal officer. All three are Iraq War Veterans. His father, who was serving as the Senior Army Chaplain at Arlington National Cemetery on September 11, 2001 recently retired from active duty with the rank of colonel.
In 2006 James moved back to northeastern Pennsylvania where he lives with his wife, Jill, and three children. His oldest son is currently serving in the Pennsylvania National Guard. In 2009, he served as the campaign manager for Sam Rohrer, candidate for governor. In the 2010 general election, James served as the Director of Conservative Outreach for Governor Tom Corbett, overseeing the outreach to all the Faith, Family and Freedom Coalitions.
In 2011, after serving on the governor’s inaugural committee, he was recommended by Governor Corbett for his current position as the regional Community Relations Coordinator for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
Please plan to attend, not only to hear Chaplain May’s presentation, but also to show your support for all veterans and active duty military personnel.
