American Legion District 25, Chaplain of the Year
George Lee Post 532, Hayesville NC
It is with great respect and gratification I announce the 1st annual “Chaplain of the Year” award for District 25, Department of North Carolina American Legion went to Chaplain Carl Maxwell, USAF of George Lee Post 532. Our District Commander J.D. Baker, USN made the presentation during a Memorial Day service at Unaka Baptist Church.
Chaplain Maxwell became our Chaplain about 7 years ago and has set the standard for looking after veterans and their families in Clay and surrounding counties. Under his leadership Post 532 developed the Tri-county Veterans Missions Counsel to meet physical needs . Chaplain Maxwell maintains contact with the veterans at the Clay County Care Center to insure they do not feel forgotten. He leads by responding to the needs of all veterans by working with other Veterans groups. Chaplain Maxwell is the example for the American Legion slogan “For God and Country”.
