Chaplain Doug Keefauver

I served in the US Army 1966-1971. In 1967 I deployed with the Alpha Company       2/501st 101st Airborne Division to Vietnam as a infantry soldier. I achieved the rank of Staff Sergeant while in Vietnam in 1969. I was wounded in Dec. 1967 and April 1968 for which I received Purple Hearts for those wounds. I left the Army in March of 1971.

In 1987 I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ after a long battle with drugs. Since 1987 I have served in ministry as a Youth Pastor, Associate Pastor, Missions Director and Prison Chaplain, as well as preached the gospel in the Philippines, Indonesia, China, Mexico, and West Africa. My wife and I have lead, and trained hundreds of short term missionaries   over the past 25 years. I am currently ordained with Abundant life Fellowship in Roseville, CA a non-denominational church, and I  am a chaplain for several Veterans organizations. I proudly ride with the Patriot Guard Riders (PGR) when ever I can; to honor our fallen hero’s.

In 2010 I was  compelled to begin working with needy veterans and their families and began Veterans for Jesus our membership is growing almost daily.  I will remain devoted to this task until the Lord tells me otherwise or calls me home.

God Bless you all, and welcome home

    A message from a veteran
    We voluntarily served our country proudly with honor and were willing to make the ultimate sacrifice on a moments notice if called upon to do so. Never making any excuses but striving to stay mission ready because our brothers in arms depended on us. Our sacrifices’ were many but we willingly accepted them so that our families, friends and countrymen could sleep safe at night. We don’t want or expect any special recognition because it was an honor to serve. We just ask for two things:

    First is for you to say a prayer every night for those that were not fortunate enough to return from duty, those currently serving, and especially the military families that are probably the most extraordinary group of people on god’s green earth.

    Second is if you see one of us down and out on his luck without a home and on the streets. Please offer them a meal, and feed their soul by letting them know that God loves them and so do we.

    Romans 15:1 We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves.

    Al Yturralde, A proud member of Veterans for Jesus
