dot The Jacob S. Siefert '01 Memorial Corps Chaplain Endowed Scholarship. Because of the generosity of so many people, the first scholarship will be offered fall of '08. The endowment means that the scholarship will be offered in perpetuity (for a long time, basically). We have been in contact with the chaplains at A&M.

We will continue to contribute to the scholarship, the bigger the endowment, the more generous the scholarship but we also hope that Crede Deo will affect other students in other insitutions as we seek ways to support education.

Direct questions about the scholarship can be directed to Brian Bishop, Development Officer, Corps of Cadets Phone: - 979- 458-1689 Email:

We are in the process of creating a board of advisors, Jacob's Ladder. These are men and women to whom the scholarship recipient will have access to for advice on faith, sucess, and integrity as they navigate university. Jake would have liked this! Check this page for news and updates on progress!

Contributions should be sent to Texas A&M Foundation, 401 George Bush Drive, College Station, Texas 77840-2811.
In the memo line write, Jacob Samuel Siefert. Other questions you may contact Johnathan Siefert, 713-884-0325. Thanks to everyone for your support.

Special Request: Jake's friend Mark Miller has asked me to pass this along. (Jake was Mark's band manager for the 7 months after his return from Iraq.) Jake loved music and the bond he and Mark had was forged at least in part in sharing the joy of writing music.

From Mark: I am thinking about a new song idea regarding Jake and his influence on his friends. I want to gather stories from Jakes friends of how he directly or indirectly influenced their life in any way. Please send an email with any stories for any memories or instances you are willing to share.


dot Need updates from all of you out there!

dot every WEEK!

Memorial Day, 2010
by Silent Bob
I grieve over the loss of every one of the American  military and civilians that are a result of the War on Terrorism. It is a terrible toll of  America’s finest. The blood our heroes shed is the price paid for our Freedom and way of life. As much as I wish none of our sons and daughters had to or will have to give their lives, they have and they will again.
What would have happened in Korea in 1950-1953 if the conflict occurred in the modern information age. Remember that five years earlier the Second World War had come to an end with unthinkable loss of life and national sacrifice.The United States participated with the USSR, the United Kingdom and France in dividing up control of Europe and Korea esssentially by what areas each country’s forces had liberated from the Germans, Italians and Japanese. Where the USSR controlled they instilled communist regimes.
When the north invaded the south, I can see endless talking heads espousing the intellectual arguments against intervening in a civil war, how we shouldn’t be involved. Our motives would have been questioned by the media and the expert they would find to support their view of the truth.
We might not have defended the artificially created South Korean nation from the equally artificial North Korean government. Had we not the entire Korean peninsula would be as bankrupt and desperate as North Korea is now. There would be no vibrant economy as the one in South Korea today. The cost was over 38,000 American dead in the four year war. A terrible toll, but the results for the world and millions of South Koreans reinforces the fact that the sacrifice was worthwhile.
So on this Memorial Day, I thank the men and women of the United States Military for their sacrifices made to protect our nation in the past, the present, and most assuredly again in the future.
