Minutemen: I have received word from LT Jay Headrick, the former Mustang A. Co. Commander for the 7th, 8th and 9th deployment that the Chaplain for the 8th and 9th deployment (LT) Father James Mennis, Captain, USN, Retired Chaplain Corps has passed away. Here is part of his obituary:

Monsignor James Mennis - March 25, 1938 - October 28,2014.

Obituary
Monsignor James Finbarr Mennis, a native of Ballycastle, County Mayo, Ireland, and a 30-year veteran of
the u.s. Navy, died on October 28,2014, at the McGraw Center for Caring Hospice Facility in Jacksonville.
He was born on March 25, 1938, to the late John and Sarah Ruddy Mennis of Ballycastle and Navan,
Ireland. Fr. Mennis entered All Hallows College Seminary in Dublin, Ireland, in 1956 and was ordained a
priest in June 1962 for the Diocese of Sacramento, California. His fIrst assignment was as assistant pastor in St. Basil's Church, Vallejo, California. In 1966, he was assigned to Holy Spirit Parish, Sacramento, followed
three years later by a posting there as the Diocesan Catholic Youth Director. Fr. Mennis was commissioned
in the U.S. Navy in November 1970, and his first assignment as a naval chaplain was to the Marine Air
Group 56 in Santa Ana, California. Four months later, he was trained at Coronado, California, in preparation
for duty with COMNAVSUPPAC Saigon, Republic of Vietnam, as a Circuit Rider in the Delta region covering some 32 units/ships. Upon his return to the United States, Fr. Mennis had tours in the Naval Disciplinary Command in Portsmouth, New Hampshire; the Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 62 home-ported in Gulfport, Mississippi; temporary assignments to Rota, Spain, and Okinawa, Japan; the Naval Station in Charleston, South Carolina; and Naval Station Keflavik, Iceland. In September 1979, he was directed to Boston College for post-graduate studies specializing in Religious Education and was then
assigned to the Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia. His next assignment was back overseas, this time to
Naval Activities, London, England, as the Command Chaplain in September 1983. He then enjoyed four
successive tours in the Tidewater area of Virginia, followed by sea duty onboard USS Dwight D.
Eisenhower as the Command Chaplain with additional duty to COMCRUDESGRU Twelve. That was followed by a three-year tour as Command Chaplain at Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek beginning in June 1991, then as the Command Chaplain of Naval Station Norfolk with additional duty to COMNAVBASE Norfolk. From Norfolk, he traveled south to Florida to become the Command Chaplain of Naval Air Station Cecil Field, after which he was assigned to Naval Station Mayport, Florida, as the Command Chaplain. In the year 2000, he retired from the U.S. Navy and remained in the Mayport/Jacksonville area. Before and after his retirement, he served as chaplain for several military-related organizations in the Jacksonville area, including the Navy League of the United States, the Mayport Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America, and the Semper Fidelis Society. Fr. Mennis enjoyed life-long friendships with people all over the world, from his school days in Ireland, through his dedicated U.S. Navy career, and following his retirement to northeast Florida. He was known by his friends as an avid golfer (one who achieved a hole-in-one on three occasions!), a caring chaplain, a trusted confidant, a
benevolent citizen, and a true friend. Fr. Mennis was predeceased by his brother John. He is survived by
brothers Tom and Michael and by his sister Francis, a Mercy nun, all of Ireland. He is also survived by ten
adored nieces and nephews and their loving extended families. He is being returned to his beloved Ireland,
