Our Lutheran Church of the Missouri Synod through its Army and Navy Commission has fully recognized the great task of providing a spiritual ministry to the men in the armed forces. Therefore many Lutheran clergyman at the beginning of the war offered themselves cheerfully to preach Christ Crucified to these men who were about to die and to minister to them under every condition.
