Colonel Mohr Has Finished the Fight
It is with sadness we report to our readership the passing of a great faithful and courageous Christian soldier, Lt. Col. Gordon “Jack” Mohr Aus Ret.
Jack was a great man and had, through the providence of God, greatly influenced my life. In one of his last, if not the last writing to me, not long ago, he indicated he did not think he would be in this world much longer. I responded that according to the Bible Elijah sensed when God would take him prior to his departure – not just Elijah but Elisa, also. I told him that I had a strong sense of his impending departure and that I was praying for him; that if his work was done and if, in fact, he was to become infirm or could no longer do the work he loved doing that God would take him. That was our last communiqué save for a letter that my wife and I wrote him while he was in the hospital.
I must say I feel very sad and a bit lonely at his departure. I loved him and admired him. People need heroes and the enemy has taken Godly heroes from our young people though we still have those many heroes of the Bible. To me, Col. Jack Mohr was of the caliber of hero as those Bible heroes; and, he was my hero.
He was a military man and though having retired from the military with honors (he was decorated in WW II and was one of the most highly decorated soldiers in the Korean War) he never retired from the Lord’s Army. He was a faithful fighting Christian soldier right up to the end.
Toward the end of his military
career as a Christian soldier he could not, due to age and failing health,
travel to speak but would speak on the radio with me from time to time. He spoke at our last gathering in
Picture a soldier being carried out of a battle on a stretcher, propped up on one elbow, firing his army .45 towards the enemy line and you have pictured Col. Mohr as he left this world. Even while confined to his hospital bed, he urged his son to get out his latest mailing. It was entitled “From the Watchman’s Corner, June 2003, Holocaust Education in American Schools.” On the cover is a picture of a helpless school child being forced to wear a six-pointed star and reenact the so-called Holocaust (we offer that publication in this newsletter for free to our supporters in memory of Jack).
Col. Mohr did not call the anti-Christ Jews God’s chosen people and would often say that his grandfather had taught him, while raising corn on the farm, that if one was going to be for corn he must also be against weeds; unlike the Baptist he once was he did not call the Jews God’s chosen people but the anti-Christ that they are.

I’ve put in this newsletter the photo taken of Jack, Pastor and Mary Alice Jones, and myself taken the last time we were all together. I love Jack and shall miss him very much.
He was loved by many and will be missed by many. Ralph Forbes, who was one of his many friends, wrote a fine tribute to him at his web-site (we have printed it in this newsletter).
We salute you, Jack, a true
Christian soldier, and know that you are indeed an old soldier who will never
