Catholic chaplains have served the spiritual needs of the men and women in uniform since 1917.

Actually this weekend, I heard that military chaplains began serving the troops in 1775.

I recall a conversation I had with a close friend and former Catholic Chaplain in the Air Force (he retired as a Brig. General). It would be an understatement to say he is one of the most magnificent men I have ever known.

Just as an aside, if I recall our conversation correctly, there have been four Chaplains who have been awarded the Medal of Honor and all four were Catholic Chaplains.

Now more than ever, we NEED all Christian Chaplains in our military. They must be allowed to live their faith and provide solice and counsel to members of our military without government intervention.
