Chaplain Dunkel Begins Duties at Webb Base

Big Spring Herald
November 23, 1952

Chaplain (Lt.) Henry N. Dunkel, a parish priest, high school instructor, and coach of two undefeated football teams, is the new Catholic chaplain at Webb Air Force Base.

Father Dunkel, who arrived at the Big Spring installation Wednesday from Chaplains School at

Fort Slocum, N.Y., succeeds Chaplain (Lt.) Edward Lawler. Father Lawler, the first Catholic chaplain assigned to Webb, has been alerted for duty in the Far East.

Webb Air Force Base is Father Dunkel's first military assignment since his entrance into the Air

Force September 19.

A native of Dyersville, Iowa, Father Dunkel attended Xavier High School at Dyersville and

Loras College at Dubuque, Iowa.

Following his graduation from Loras he entered St. Paul Seminary, St. Paul, Minn., where he

was ordained to the priesthood in 1945.

After ordination, Father Dunkel was assigned to St. Columbkille Church at Dubuque where he served as parish priest and taught high school classes.

In addition to these duties, he also coached the high school football and baseball teams.

In his seven years at Dubuque, Father Dunkel mentored two undefeated football teams. A 20-game winning streak was finally snapped when St. Columbkille bowed by a one-point margin.

After his arrival on the base, Father Dunkel announced that Sunday Mass at the Academic Building Auditorium would again be celebrated at 9 a.m.
