Having spent most of my life in the deserts of Arizona I’m all too familiar with the Army Corps of Engineers.

 

A number of years ago the Army Corps of Engineers convinced the Apache Indians on the San Carlos Indian Reservation to remove all the large cottonwood trees along a major section of the San Carlos River. They told the Indians that it would give them more land to farm. A number of range experts told the Army Corps of Engineers that removing the cottonwood trees would make the land subject to more flooding and erosion and advised against the project.

 

But the Army Corps of Engineers thought they knew best and proceeded to remove the cottonwood trees from several miles of river bed. Several years later every spring rain and snowmelt in the mountains ran down through the San Carlos River bed, destroying all of the farmland in its path. The same amount of water had run years previously and then did little damage because of the natural barriers and ground protection the large cottonwood trees and other shrub presented.

(CNSNews.com) – Archbishop Timothy Broglio, who leads the Roman Catholic Archdiocese   for the Military Services, wrote a letter to be read at all Sunday Masses for U.S. military personnel around the world that said that a regulation issued by the Obama Administration under the new federal health care law was “a blow” to a freedom that U.S. troops have not only fought to defend but for which some have recently died in battle.

“It is a blow to a freedom that you have fought to defend and for which you have seen your buddies fall in battle,” the archbishop wrote.

Another line in his letter said: “We cannot—we will not—comply with this unjust law.”

The message from the archbishop touched off a controversy both in and outside the military when the Army’s Office of the Chief of Chaplains told the service’s senior chaplains that Catholic priests serving as Army chaplains should be told not to read the archbishop’s letter from the pulpit.  read more
