Today I had the pleasure of welcoming a special guest from Nevada, the Reverend D. Edward Chaney, who this morning delivered an eloquent invocation.
Pastor Chaney is originally from South Carolina, but for the past two years he has led the flock of the Second Baptist Church in Las Vegas, Nevada. He is also very involved with the Las Vegas community, serving on the board of the local chapters of the Urban League and the NAACP.
In addition to his tremendous service to the Southern Nevada community, he also served in the Navy for four years, and recently retired as Chaplain of the U.S. Air Force Reserve at Nellis Air Force Base.
I welcome Pastor Chaney and his wife, Avis, to Washington, and I thank Pastor Chaney for his inspiring invocation.
