The Viatorian Community Archives received this news clipping from Mr. Jim Dittrich who found it in his Uncle Tom Kenney’s belongings.  Thankfully, he did not throw it out!  It is a nice addition to Fr. Charles Riedel’s collection here.

Unfortunately, the newspaper source and date published is unknown.  However, the article states he was 30 years old at the time, so that makes it sometime in 1943.  Fr. Riedel served as a military chaplain from 1941-1944.

The news clipping prompted a Veteran’s Day article from the Viatorian Director of Communications, Eileen Daday.
