Five military chaplains, all of them Catholics, have received the Medal of Honor since the Civil War. Two of them are on the path to sainthood as their stories of bravery have touched people the world over. Their example inspires a new generation of men to be chaplains as well.
Four Catholic military chaplains have also been recognized for bravery in the line of duty with United States Navy ships named in their honor.
In 2013, the USCCB Media Blog featured a series of posts about past, current and future chaplains, plus the
extraordinary history of Catholics priests as Medal of Honor recipients. Links to the blog posts are below.
