  1. Here is a free book I wrote. It is published by the U.S. Army Chief of Chaplains. You can download it as a PDF. The title is "Leadership and transformation of the Army Chaplaincy during WWII: DOTMLPF-P as a transformation tool for religious support." DOTMLPF-P is an acronym for Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel, Leadership and Education, Personnel, Facilities, and Policy. I used a current military system (DOTMLPF-P) to assess an historical event (how the Army Chaplaincy transformed to provide religious support). Of note of interest for this
  2. Thank you for the comments. Why do you find it interesting that "U.S. ARMY" was added to the etching after his name? Thanks again,
  3. Are you saying this sword was made during WWII? Why would TR wartime company make a U.S. sword?
  4. Any idea what year Solingen was added to the company and thus the mark on the sword? Also trying to find out the years he was with the occupation forces. Thanks.
  5. Thoughts on this 1902 German made sword. The name on the sword is William D. Cleary.
  6. Can someone please narrow my identification of this item. It came from a Vet of 1898 Spanish American War. He was in Cuba. I believe it is Mexican. Sword, bayonet??? Thanks,
  7. Nice clean kit. Missing a silver tray. You can see the diameter of where the tray would go (about six inches in diameter). Interesting that it has everything else but the tray. International Silver provided communion ware items to denominations who sent their clergy into the military.
  8. Chaplain School, June 1943. Naval Training Center, Sampson. He was on Treasure Island (Naval Training and Distribution Center), 1 June 1944-24 Jan 1945 Then the 36th Naval Construction Battalion, for most of 1945.
  9. Well done!!! Thanks for telling the chaplain story.
  10. What does "UTAFP" stand for? I have a pamphlet that described escorting remains. It is UTAFP-243. I have found other documents with UTAFP that also deals with escorting remains. TIA.
  11. Very nice to see. Could you post a closeup picture of the chaplain? It appears the chaplain could be Protestant. That would be the case if he is using the issued black scarf (eagle over the cross). If the scarf is purple/violet then he could be Roman Catholic which would fit well with the kneeling soldiers. Protestants kneel, but not as much. Again, very well done and so nice to see.
  12. Where does it say that he was the recreation and morale officer?
