    Dear Father Capodanno,
    Years ago, I read about you. You did not have to join the Navy as a Chaplain, but you did. You gave comfort and faith to those struggling each day. Our country acknowledged you with the Medal of Honor. Much greater than that, you are one step closer to being declared a saint of the church. The Wall states you are from Hawaii, but you are a New Yorker from Staten Island. EWTN had a movie on you. Thank you for your faith, and being a Chaplain for the Marines who needed you. Semper Fi. Watch over our nation, it is in need of you, now more than ever. Rest in peace in heaven, but please continue to help our forces in peril.

    After having posting memorials for so many soldiers and others, this is my first remembrance of a man of the cloth. Thank you, Lieutenant Capodanno, for being a source of inspiration and comfort to our troops in Vietnam. I'm sure that you preached to and aided many troops there in Vietnam.
