Archbishop Broglio of the Military Archdiocese is indignant that a kneeling communicant was denied Holy Communion

I was recently informed about a member of the Armed Services being denied Holy Communion in a military parish because they kneeled for Holy Communion.

Archbishop Broglio, the Archbishop for the Military Services responds.......

I deeply regret this lack of respect to you and your legitimate rights.
You may tell the priest in question that I will not tolerate this disregard for the options of the faithful.
I will also see how I can remind the Army priests in [deleted] about the GIRM.  Unfortunately, not everyone reads carefully everything that is published and promulgated.
May the Lord bless you and give you strength.
Sincerely in Christ,
+Timothy Broglio
