First Military Chaplain since 1970 to die in combat. Some chaplains are truly selfless servants to soldiers. You know them by the respect they get from the men, and their own willingness to expose themselves to danger when ministering to men in dangerous situations. On the other hand, since all men die, I cannot think of a situation I had RATHER pick to die in than something like this. Selflessness in this epoch is a rarity. We should honor it when we see it.
Prayers for the family.
