Greetings from Omaha!

I thought you might enjoy looking at this.

I cannot recall exactly where I picked this up, but I tend to think it was in a Goodwill or Salvation Army in Hawaii back in the 1980's.

I was surprised at how stark the Chaplain's device looked on the chest of the uniform.

As to where this was worn? Only thing for sure is that it was during the Vietnam era, as this is when the USAF used black on OD as their subdued insignia. In later years they switched to blue on OD. This could easily have been Vietnam, Thailand or Korea.

And we showed this off in another forum, but thought I might as well bring it over to this one.

As per our previous discussion, I am assuming that the good chaplain had been an Infantry in his early career, went back to school, and returned to serve in a new and somewhat different role.

The Chaplain was crazy...he had his last name as chaplain, and notice the MACV with a cross instead of a sword.

Of course the Chaplain was crazy... it seems that he jumped out of perfectly good airplanes as well. ;)

Here is the outside of a WWII kit I just received. It is one of the rare chalice kits. These were used mostly by Lutherans and Episc. This guy was Lutheran.
