Loras College Chaplain is the Second "1st Chaplain to die in Combat"

Father Barragy is the first chaplain to die in combat in Vietnam. Prior to Vietnam, during WWII, Father Schmitt (graduate of Loras College) was the first chaplain to die in combat in World War II. That makes two great wars where Loras College chaplains were the first to give the supreme sacrifice. Those of us in Dubuque, Iowa, American Legion Post #6 honor both chaplains regularly, but in February 2020 we held a remembrance ceremony for these chaplains and the 4 who dies on the USAT Dorchester. Rest In Peace, Ye Gentlemen of God.
