Speaking of Military Chaplains... Fr. Tim Vakoc +

Another fallen hero.
+Cathy informed me that Fr. Tim Vakoc died yesterday - I have no other information.+
01 June2005: On Saturday May 29, 2004, Army Major H. Timothy Vakoc, a Roman Catholic Priest, was returning from saying Mass for soldiers in Iraq when his humvee was struck by an IED (improvised explosive device) and he sustained a severe brain injury. He was treated in Germany, then Walter Reed for several months then transferred to the VA Hospital in Minneapolis. - Source
May the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.
