  • Joel Phillip Nichols

    I am one of the sons of Phillip Arthur Nichols, KIA 13 October 1970. I know my dad received two purple hearts, one for being wounded, and the other for giving the ultimate sacrifice. I also have a 3rd purple heart that came back with his belongings, which must have been given to him by someone else. Thank you for posting this important information. The general public lacks sufficient knowledge to appreciate the service our chaplains provide. I have heard many stories from men whose lives my father touched, and who say they would not be alive today if it weren’t for him.

    We are working to update Protestant Chaplains Monument at Arlington National Cemetery. Need any info on Navy/Marine/USAF Protestant Chaplains who have died in service since WWII. Army has 18 lost in service. We worked to add the Jewish Chaplains Monument in 2011.

    Capt. Cash, we are working on an update to Chaplains Hill at Arlington for the Protestant Chaplains Monument. Were either of the two Navy Chaplains you mentioned Protestant? Any help appreciated. Ken
