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 communiqu� 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 Little Rock, Arkansas, October 20, 2002.I saw him last on May 20, 2003, just prior to our Branson, Missouri, meeting and knew at the time it would be the last time I would see him.Even then, though he had just returned from a hospital stay and was having trouble walking, he was pounding away on his word processor writing his next �Watchman on the Wall Intelligence Newsletter� and ministering, through the mail, to the many who he loved and cared for.


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.


We did a tribute in memory to Col. Mohr on our radio broadcast on July 22, 2003, in which we played many sound bits of Jack telling his story.I told the story of how God used him to give me my first baptism of fire in the Jew media.That broadcast is available to our supporters free of charge.


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 die.John 11:25-26 � Jesus said to her, 25�I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me shall live even if he dies, 26and everyone who lives and believes in Me shall never die.�NAS

Lt. Col. Gordon �JACK� Mohr Aus Ret.

Jack Mohr was born in Chicago, IL., January 1st, 1916, the first baby born in Chicago that year. He was raised on a farm and joined the Army as an enlisted man during the early days of World War II.He served with distinction in World War II and Korea, holding every Combat Infantry leadership position from PFC, to Company Commander. He retired in 1964 as a Lieutenant Colonel.


While working with the Korean Military Advisory Group in prewar Korea, he was captured during an abortive coup attempt by the Communists against the government of President Syn-gman Rhee in November 1948. He was tried by a Communist People's Court and sentenced to be shot by a Red firing squad. He was able to escape with the aid of a South Korean Sergeant who had joined the rebel force. After making his way back to friendly forces he chose to stay. When the war began on June 25, 1950, he was with a South Korean Infantry Battalion on the 38th parallel, north of Seoul on the major invasion route. He was the first American to be wounded in that war, and received the Silver Star, from Major General William Dean, (this was the day before the General was captured) for action during the opening hours of the Korean War. He holds the record for the most number of consecutive days on the front line in combat duty without a break, (276) from July 12, 1950 to May 5, 1951. He fought the war with a reward of $250,000 in gold, "dead or alive" on his head, offered by the North Korean government. In 1951, he worked with American prisoners returning from prison camps in North Korea, and as result of his first hand experience, wrote and taught the first lessons in the Military Code of Conduct at Fort Devens, Mass.


Jack was a well-known fundamental Baptist evangelist, with over thirty years speaking experience, which took him into 49 states and 5 foreign countries. For twelve years, he was in the American opinion speaker's Bureau of the John Birch Society. He became noted for his outspoken, uncompromising stand for Truth and Right in politics and religion and his fight against Communism and Treason.


Jack began an in-depth study into Judaism and the biblical and historical roots of true Israel shortly before I met him in the 1970s. Because he had the courage to preach the Truth as God showed him the Light, Jack suffered much harassment and persecution from government agencies, such as the IRS for warning against the dangers posed by Zionism in our government and the Christian church. Even worse for Jack were the cowardly attacks and lies against him by the false shepherds of Judeo-churchianity. Some of his battles were published in the old Spotlight, "Korean War Hero Devotes His Life to Fight for America, Christianity,� December 5, 1983, under my nom de plume, R.K. Travler.


In recent years Jack was no longer able to lecture and travel as extensively as he had done so tirelessly for so many years; but he continued his prolific research and writing, including publishing a Quarterly Intelligence Report that gave insight into things denied to America by the media. He was the author of more than 23 books. He attended Moody Bible Institute. He won an honorary Doctor of Divinity Degree as well as earned degrees in Doctor of Letters, and Master of Theology.


After surviving years of IRS persecution, the theft of his military retirement, and countless shameful insults to injuries, Jack and his beloved wife Doris moved to Little Rock, Arkansas.


Doris peacefully passed away to be with our Lord on June 21, 2000.In tears of grief, Jack wrote movingly:"She had been my friend, companion, and help mate for the last fifty years of my life. Her silly stories and fun loving ways will be something that I cherish until God calls me home. Those of you who loved and know Doris can rest, and praise God for she is truly healed and living life praising our God and Savior.�- Jack Mohr
