While at Mundelein I applied for and was commissioned as an Ensign Probationary (Theological Student) in the Naval Reserve in November 1967.  My first parochial assignment was Saint Francis Xavier Church, Nelson and Francisco Streets in Chicago.  While St. Francis, I also served as a Naval Reserve chaplain in a unit on Chicago’s lakefront.  Entering active duty with the Navy in August 1971, my assignments included: Naval Air Station, Agana, Guam; U.S. Fleet Activities, Yokosuka, Japan; Naval Air Station, Key West, Florida; USS INDEPENDENCE (CV 62); Office of the Chief of Chaplains, Washington, DC (Arlington Annex); Naval Chaplains School, Newport, Rhode Island (Basic Course Instructor and Officer); 1st Marine Division, Fleet Marine Force (7th Marine Regimental Chaplain, followed by Assistant Division Chaplain), Camp Pendleton, California; Naval Training Center, Great Lakes, Illinois, (Command Chaplain); Office of the Chief of Chaplains, Washington, DC (Arlington Annex), Executive Assistant to the Chief of Chaplains and Director of the Bureau of Naval Personnel civilian and Navy staff; and, The Joint Staff, The Pentagon.

Promoted to the rank of Captain, Chaplain Corps, U.S. Navy in 1988, I retired from the Naval Service on June 1, 1995.  With the blessing of Cardinal Bernardin, I pursued a degree in Canon Law at The Catholic University of America.  Achieving the Licentiate of Canon Law (J.C.L.) in May 1997, I worked as a judge for the Tribunal of the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA, Washington, DC, and was appointed as Judicial Vicar and Vice Chancellor.  Since 2003, I have served as judge and canonical consultant for the Archdiocese of Washington.
