Chaplain Wounded in Combat Dies

Chaplain Tim Vakoc, a US Army Catholic priest, succumbed to the results of his combat wounds earlier this week.  Chaplain Vakoc had been wounded by an IED in May of 2004, and is believed to have been the first military Chaplain so wounded in the current conflict.  He had been a Chaplain since 1996, and is the first Chaplain to die due to combat in the current conflict.

As noted by Chaplain Mitch Lewis.
