Who's Who from 5th SGF(A) Chaplain's Section (Draft)

The following is a listing of all personnel in our database, who served as Chaplains and Chaplain's Assistant. If you can correct any errors or if you can add any names or if you have any rosters, please let me know by e-mail at (sherman1@flash.net) or by phone at (713) 683-9076 or join the staff section discussion at the Green Beret Forum.

Narrative Information: No Chaplains are noted as serving with US Army Special Forces - Vietnam (Provisional) in the 5th SFGA TDY booklet. Chaplains with Training and Support Headquarters (TSH) will be on another, separate, table.

Details Reported: "Covered all teams. Visited all sites in each Corps at least twice and many 4-5 different times. Conducted services at each site and Memorial Services as needed. Was shot down in IV Corps and was ambushed in IV Corps while on a mission with team and assault boats on Phu Quoc Island." This was probably a Typical Chaplain's tour report.
