Thanks for posting. I love Chaplain items, unfortunately they are extremely rare. I have one 5th Army Chaplain's uniform, wouldn't sell it for anything! Thanks again for sharing!

An outstanding collection! I noticed the Chaplain at President Regan's funeral was wearing wings and a ribbon bar on his Stole. I presume he did this because he was wearing robes instead of a uniform. Are there separate regulations for uniform wear by Chaplains?
