On this day, October 15th, we celebrate the birth of the founder of the Asatru Folk Assembly in 1948. Mr. McNallen was born in Breckenridge, Texas, later attending Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas. After college he commissioned into the Army as a 2nd Leutenant and served as an army ranger. Mr. McNallen founded the viking brotherhood in 1970, which would later grow into the asatru free assembly, and later the Asatru Folk Assembly in 1995. All American asatruar are only asatruar because Mr. McNallen and his tireless promotion of our faith, without him American heathenry would look very different, if it would exist at all.Happy birthday to our founder and elder of our church, Steve McNallen!!
