  1. Chaplain Raymond G. McPherson, CAPT/USN(Ret)

    Just finished listening to our son and this awesome interview. His mother and I heard his description of life experiences that touched our heart, especially his part in the recovery efforts following Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans while he was aware that we, his parents, had also experienced a severe loss of home and property. Yet, he was able to show up with me, his dad, and his younger brother as we surveyed the devastation of our home in Waveland. He and his brother, my two sons, were an enormous support on the first sighting of damage. Total grief that gave us all a new understanding of folks that lose property and personal possessions that represent valuable family history. We are amazed at the leadership he has shown in so many challenging circumstances. How proud we are of our son, LCol. David E. McPherson, for sharing his military experience and all that he has seen and experienced, for us, his family, for God and country. Thank you son. Your earned your rank and well deserved. We love you. Dad and Mom
