A Chaplain for All

I met Father Capadonno while on a combat operation in Quang Ngai Province, South Vietnam at the start of my tour in Vietnam. We only spoke to each other for a few minutes. I was still a PFC and thinking I had made an incredible mistake by volunteering for duty in Vietnam. Those few moments talking with him really changed my life and in my mind I realized why I was there. I was there to help "Grunts" make it home. When my tour (time) in Vietnam was up, I volunteered to extend my tour of duty there. Something strange happened to after that meeting, when in combat, I felt like someone was present; someone protecting me and I have been that way ever since. I want to believe that the presence I have felt all these years is Father Capadonno. I am not a Catholic, my parents raised me in the Baptist faith. Many Chaplains in the military receive training in several faiths. I was very happy to learn that Father Capadonno has been declared a Servant of God several years ago and hopefully, they will recognize him as a Saint before my time on earth is up. Before that, I would like to see Father Capadonno be recognized as the Patron Saint of Sailors and Marines.;

Thank you for Service to God and The USMC

I remember Father Capodanno fondly, although I never met him. I had the privilege to serve 3 Marine Corps units as a Navy Chaplain from 1979 to 1985. Chaplain Capodanno gave his life on my 15th birthday - 4 September 1967. My service was a wonderful ministry, but so inadequate when thinking of Father Vincent. Semper FI!
