Father Leonard F. Stegman Army Chaplain Fr. Leonard F. Stegman (CH. COL. US Army, Ret.), 97, went to be with his Lord at 11 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 12, 2014, while at Brooke Army Medical Center, San Antonio, Texas. At the end of the day, TAPS was sounded for the facility. He was born May 31, 1917, in Offerle, Kan., attended high school for two years at Plain, Kan. and for three years (because of Latin) at St. Lawrence Seminary, Mt. Calvary, Wis. He was ordained as a Capuchin-Franciscan Priest on June 23, 1943, at St. Mary's Church, Marathon, Wis. To prepare for priestly service and continue extensive post-ordination study, he attended St. Lawrence Seminary, Mt. Calvary, Wis.; Mary Immaculate Seminary, Garrison, NY; St. Anthony Seminary, Marathon, Wis.; George Washington University and the Preacher's Institute of Catholic University, Washington D.C. Father Stegman achieved two Master's degrees (International Studies and Education) from George Washington University. After ordination, Father Stegman was assigned to parish and youth work in Michigan and Wisconsin. He gave retreats to the laity at Monte Alverno Retreat House in Appleton, Wis. and was a home missionary for almost three years. During that time, he preached parish missions and gave days of recollection and retreats to lay people and religious throughout the mid-western states. Father Stegman entered the U.S. Army Reserve in 1948 and later served as chaplain of the Wisconsin Army National Guard. In April 1950, Chaplain Stegman activated as an Army chaplain and fulfilled assignments at several stateside Army posts and stations. He served in Japan and Korea during 1950-1951 and in Europe for six years. Chaplain Stegman served in both the Korean and Vietnam wars. His duties at every level of the Army included assignments at 3rd Infantry Division; U. S. Army Air Defense Command, U. S. Army Vietnam; 3rd Army; Headquarters, Forces Command; and U. S. Army Materiel Command. He was a graduate of the Army Command and Staff College and the Army War College. Chaplain Stegman retired in the grade of Colonel on May 31, 1977. His awards and decorations include two Silver Stars, Purple Heart, three Legions of Merit, Bronze Star, Korean Distinguished Unit Citation, German and Japanese occupation medals, Korean Service Medal (with four battle stars), United Nations medal for service in Korea, and two American defense ribbons. After retiring from the Army in 1977, Father Stegman remained in the Washington, DC area and ministered energetically in both civilian and military parishes. In 1988, he moved to San Antonio, Texas. There he continued a three-state supervision of World Wide Marriage Encounter as well as parish ministry in local churches. He participated extensively in local, state, and national Veterans Service Organizations, including the Military Order of the Purple Heart and the Korean War Veterans Association (KWVA). He served as National Chaplain for KWVA from Sept. 2005 to June 2007 and National Chaplain for MOPH from Aug. 2004 to Aug. 2006. During his service in San Antonio, Father Stegman celebrated the Mass for the Korean community and was instrumental in obtaining a native Korean pastor for the congregation as they began to establish and build their Korean parish. Father Stegman also supported Deacon Philip Kim in his response to the call and to his ordination to priesthood. 71 Years a Priest, "Father Len" served the military community by celebrating the Mass at Randolph Air Force Base, Fort Sam Houston and Lackland Air Force Base. He served as Chaplain Emeritus of both the Military Order of the Purple Heart and the Korean War Veterans Association. In the civilian community, he ministered to the local congregations at St. Monica's and St. Pius X in the diocese of San Antonio, Texas and celebrated daily Mass at the Incarnate Word Village Community. He was the recipient of the David E. White Lifetime Achievement Award from the Military Chaplains of America. The award recognized the chaplain that best personifies by spirit and acts, the concept of "Chaplain for Life." Fr. Stegman is survived by his sister, Estelle Huelskamp (Leroy) of Fowler, Kan., and 70 nephews and nieces.

Meantime, a excellent Chaplain volunteered to become a member and serve us--Leonard Stegman, National Chaplain of the Military Order of the Purple Heart. Len served us well at Bossier City on short notice.
