USS Reid was built at Kearny, New Jersey in January 1936, and then commissioned in November 1936. She participated in fleet maneuvers and training in both the Atlantic and Pacific from 1937-1941. Once the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, USS Reid was put to work escorting and patrolling in the Hawaiian Islands and South Pacific.

While escorting reinforcements, she destroyed seven enemy planes but was also sunk herself by kamikaze crashes. The 150 survivors on board the USS Reid at the time of sinking were rescued by other landing craft within her convoy.

A bittersweet farewell to Frank M. Reid at Bethel AME

Stepping to the pulpit Sunday to bid farewell to his congregation, that message remains as relevant as ever, Reid said. And God has plenty of blessings in store, he said.

"God's got greater things coming for Bethel and Baltimore!" the 65-year-old preacher thundered as worshippers clapped and cheered him along.

During a service that stretched for more than two hours, Reid implored worshippers to seek God's blessings and share those blessings with others. That's the only way, he said, to heal a hurting city.

He encouraged them to stretch and do not just good work, but great work in God's name.

"Giving food to the hungry is good work," Reid said. "Rebuilding a city is a greater work."

Sunday was the final service at Bethel for Reid, one of Baltimore's most influential pastors. He has been elevated to the rank of bishop in the African Methodist Episcopal Church — a promotion that means he'll be leaving his pulpit of nearly 28 years.

For the first time as a minister, he won't have a congregation to shepherd. In his new role, Reid will oversee AME chaplains who work in the military, prisons and hospitals. And he'll do social action work, as well — he's forming plans for a voter registration and education campaign targeting African-Americans.

"It's very important, while black lives matter, that people realize that black votes matter," Reid said in an interview.

Though he could have been sent anywhere in the country or even overseas, the new job as bishop will allow Reid and his family to continue to live in Baltimore. Reid plans to set up an office closer to Washington.

But first, Reid had to bid farewell to his church home in West Baltimore — and his followers had to say their goodbyes, too.

Bethel members and church visitors prayed for their pastor and praised their Lord. For some younger worshippers, Reid is the only pastor they've known at Bethel. For other members, he's the best pastor they've known.

For some, Sunday was bittersweet.

Charles and Lillie Hyman, a Ridgely's Delight couple who have been members of the church for nearly 40 years, worshipped with mixed emotions.

"I'm happy for them and for their ministry to go on," said Lillie Hyman, 67. "I'm just sad because we'll miss the family."

Hyman said she appreciated not only Reid's spiritual teachings as a pastor, but also his work with other faith leaders in the city.

"We all serve the same God," she said.

Leiola Matthews, a 65-year-old nurse, said Reid's preaching and teaching has changed her life in the nearly two decades she's belonged to Bethel.

"He teaches the word that elevates your issues," she said. "He's a phenomenal teacher."

Matthews said she's become calmer and is stronger in her faith. Reid has inspired her to be a better mother and grandmother.

"I've come through the snow, the rain, a lot of buses," she said. "But it was always worth it."

Doreen Oliver, a 54-year-old federal employee, declared Reid "the best pastor ever."

Oliver credits Reid with making her want to read the Bible.

Oliver grew up around the corner from Bethel and later moved to Randallstown. But she kept coming back.

"I drive past many a church," she said, "but this is where I need to be."

For Reid's final service, Bethel was packed to standing-room only with regular worshippers and a bevy of influential guests, including politicians from the city, Baltimore County, the state and the federal government. Speaking from the pulpit, Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin proclaimed: "I'm glad Bethel doesn't believe in term limits!"

Other religious leaders stopped by. Rabbi Steven M. Fink was greeted with warm applause. In 2009, when Bethel was struck by lightning, Fink arranged for the church to worship at Temple Oheb Shalom in Park Heights.

Reid tried to keep the mood upbeat throughout the service.

"Let me remind you this is not a funeral today," he said.

He exhorted members to turn to one another and repeat affirmations, including "God's got greater expectations for you. You ain't seen nothing yet!" and "Our best days are in front of us."

"It does not stop today," Reid said. "It starts today."

The church took up a special offering for Reid, and he and his wife, Marlaa, accepted hugs and congratulations as members brought their envelopes to a basket in the front of the church.

Then Reid asked members to raise their hands.

"Make this not a moment of empty emotion, but of enabling empowerment," he said. Then, he asked God: "Make the Bethel nation greater."

"I love you all," he said finally, before turning the microphone over to Bishop James L. Davis, who presides over the AME Church's Second Episcopal District, which includes Maryland.

Davis praised Reid for his "transformational leadership." He said Bethel already had an unparalleled history as a church, and Reid "took it to another level."

As Davis spoke, Reid sat quietly behind him, eyes down and his chin resting on his left hand. But he quickly perked up when Davis joked that Reid was joining the club of ministers without a flock, without being invited to dinners, without getting endless phone calls from congregants.

"Welcome to the club!" Davis said, high-fiving Reid. "Be careful what you pray for."

Reid was elected a bishop last month. He said that the time is right to move on from Bethel, comparing the transition to a change of seasons or to children moving out of their parents' home when they become young adults.

He calls it "a necessary ending."

Bethel was founded in 1785 Reid was its longest-serving pastor. Under his leadership, the already-large congregation expanded to a second location in Owings Mills.

"This city has been a great blessing to me," said Reid, a third-generation minister. "My love affair with Baltimore will never end."

Reid's successor as pastor has not been announced. The new pastor is to be introduced next Sunday.

Reid said he intends to give the new pastor space. He doesn't plan to continue to worship at Bethel — in fact, he's not sure where he'll attend services next weekend. He hopes to visit many churches before settling on a new church home.

Eventually, Reid said, he'd like to return to Bethel to visit.

Reid promised to greet well-wishers for 15 minutes after the service. But as the receiving line snaked all the way down the long center aisle, it quickly became clear the final good-byes to a beloved pastor would take much longer.

The Ministers' Conference began in 1914 when the Negro Organizational Society, the Conference for Education in the South, the Southern Education Board, and the Cooperative Education Board sought to address the growing concerns of the African-American church and its relationship to the community. With Hampton Institute carrying strong influence with each of these community organizations, it became the birth-place of the original Ministers' Conference, then known as The Conference of Negro Ministers of Tidewater, Va.

Held June 29-July 3, 1914, 40 ministers representing four denominations gathered in the Memorial Church. The welcoming of clergy from all Christian denominations is what originally set Hampton's conference apart from the rest and has led to the success seen today.

The success of the first year led to further growth of the conference. The Rev. Dr. A. A. Graham was elected president, the Rev. G. W. Jimmerson was elected vice president, and the Rev. Laurence Fenninger, the Hampton Institute assistant chaplain, became executive secretary. Since Fenninger, the position of executive secretary has always been filled by the university chaplain, thus strengthening the bond between the University and the conference. For most of the conference's history, the position of University chaplain, and thus the conference executive secretary, has been occupied by a white male. Only in 1976 did Dr. Michael A. Battle become the first African American to serve in the position.

In its second year, the conference adopted the title of The Ministers' Conference of Hampton Institute (later the HU Ministers' Conference) and spread beyond the Hampton Roads area to include Richmond and Roanoke, Va. According to a report by Fenninger, the annual conference was to be "held at the same time as the Summer School for Teachers with the hope that closer cooperation might be brought about between ministers and teachers."

In its early years the conference did face some opposition from various groups that questioned its significance and the need for another gathering of ministers. There were already several Baptist meetings and conferences being held in Virginia. However, the conference continued to grow and flourish. Following World War I, a great migration of blacks from the South to the North was underway, and the Ministers' Conference reacted by broadening its focus from the rural church to the needs of the urban church.

In 1934, the Annual Choir Directors' and Organists' Guild joined the annual conference following the successful visit by the Westminster Choir School the previous year. The Rev. Samuel A. Devan, university chaplain from 1930-1940, wrote in his report, "This aroused so much interest that there have been requests that we provide in future conferences for the attendance of the Church Music Directors." Even today, the conference carries a strong bond with the Westminster Choir School, now the Westminster Choir College of Rider University.

Reid III DD-369 - History

This is the first comprehensive study of the constitutionality of the Parliamentary legislation cited by the American Continental Congress as a justification for its rebellion against Great Britain in 1776. The content and purpose of that legislation is well known to historians, but here Reid places it in the context of eighteenth-century constitutional doctrine and discusses its legality in terms of the intellectual premises of eighteenth-century Anglo-American legal values.

The third installment in a planned four-volume work, The Authority to Legislate follows The Authority to Tax and The Authority of Rights . In this volume, Reid shows that the inflexibility of British constitutional principle left no room for settlement or change Parliament became entrapped by the imperatives of the constitution it was struggling to preserve. He analyzes the legal theories put forward in support of Parliament's authority to legislate and the specific precedents cited as evidence of that authority.

Reid's examination of both the debate over the authority to legislate and the constitutional theory underlying the debate shows the extent to which the American Revolution and the Declaration of Independence were actions taken in defense of the rule of law. Considered as a whole, Reid's Constitutional History of the American Revolution contributes to an understanding of the central role of legal and constitutional standards, especially concern for rule by law, in the development of the American nation.

John Phillip Reid is professor of law at New York University. His work on American and British legal history has been widely acclaimed for decades. In addition to the Constitutional History of the American Revolution, his many books include The Concept of Liberty in the Age of the American Revolution and The Concept of Representation in the Age of the American Revolution.

List of Houston Texans Third-Round Draft Picks

2002 (expansion draft): Aaron Glenn

2002: Fred Weary, Charles Hill

2003: Antwan Peek, Seth Wand, Dave Ragone

2006: Charles Spencer, Eric Winston

2012 DeVier Posey, Brandon Brooks

2013: Brennan Williams, Sam Montgomery

2014: C. J. Fiedorowicz. Louis Nix III

2018: Justin Reid, Martinas Rankin, Jordan Akins

From that list, several names jump out as solid additions to the Texans’ roster. Guys like Charles Spencer, Eric Winston, Steve Slaton, Brandin Brooks, C.J. Fiedorowicz, Justin Reid, and Jordan Akins have all done a lot to help the team’s fortunes.

If his position group wasn’t so crowded with great players, Slaton would have made the Top Five Running Backs in Houston Texans history list. Eric Winston did make the Top Five Offensive Linemen list Brandon Brooks barely missed it.

Two of Houston’s Top Five Tight Ends were taken in the third round: Fiedorowicz (CJF-350!) and Jordan Akins. While Fiedorowicz’s career ran short due to injury, Akins is still going strong.

However, only one player hit the #1 spot on the charts.

Not unlike the 2021 draft, in 2018 the Texans didn’t have a pick in the first or second round (apparently Bill O’Brien never thought those two picks were valuable). When the time to grab a player rolled around in the third, former Texans general manager Brian Gaine nabbed Justin Reid—a player many believed was the biggest steal of the entire draft. With Reid firmly entrenched in the pole position of the Top 5 Safeties in Houston Texans history, it’s safe to say we agree.

The range of mock draft predictions for the Texans this year is all over the map. From Houston calling the name of wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown to cornerback Benjamin St-Juste, no one seems to have a consensus on just what name Nick Caserio will turn in when Houston’s pick comes due. Maybe the Texans get another Morency or maybe they get a Montana. Either way, barring a crazy trade, we’ll all have to wait until the 2021 NFL Draft hits the third round next Friday to know for sure.

Who was your favorite Houston Texans third-round pick? Have a player you really want the Texans to take next week?

Book description

When US-led forces invaded Iraq in 2003, they occupied a country that had been at war for 23 years. Yet in their attempts to understand Iraqi society and history, few policy makers, analysts and journalists took into account the profound impact that Iraq's long engagement with war had on the Iraqis' everyday engagement with politics, the business of managing their daily lives, and their cultural imagination. Drawing on government documents and interviews, Dina Rizk Khoury traces the political, social and cultural processes of the normalization of war in Iraq during the last twenty-three years of Ba'thist rule. Khoury argues that war was a form of everyday bureaucratic governance and examines the Iraqi government's policies of creating consent, managing resistance and religious diversity, and shaping public culture. Coming on the tenth anniversary of the US-led invasion of Iraq, this book tells a multilayered story of a society in which war has become the norm.


'Dina Rizk Khoury’s book on Iraqis and how they experienced the three Gulf wars: Iran-Iraq, Kuwait, and the end of Saddam, is equally evocative and surprising.'
