Jim Muys
State Chaplain - Navy


Thank you to the membership for electing me as State Chaplain. It is a great honor, and I will do my best to uphold the great tradition of the office and be a worthy Chaplain.
I am a life member of North Oakland Post 334 and currently hold the position of Post Chaplain as well as community activities chairman. I am also Oakland County Council Chaplain as well as District 5 Chaplain.
I earned my eligibility for the VFW while serving in Squadron VF-114 onboard the USS Kitty Hawk (CVA-63) while deployed off the coast of Vietnam and the coast of Korea. My awards include, Navy Unit Commendation, Armed Forces Expedition Medal, National Defense Medal, Vietnam Service Medal w/3 bronze stars, Korea Defense Medal, Republic of Vietnam Gallantry Cross Medal w/Palm, Vietnam Campaign Medal, Vietnam Meritorious Unit Citation, Vietnam Air Service, Vietnam Sea Service, Navy Rifle and Pistol Expert Medal. I also won the Prestigious National Chaplain of the Year in 2019 which covers all of the U.S., Europe, and the Pacific Islands of which I am very honored.
I will endeavor to do the best job that I can to help the VFW
