A soldier needs many resources in battle. One of those items is perhaps most important, yet intangible. It’s the importance of one’s faith…and today we take a look at the role of an army chaplain…a position that helps one minister to the needs of those who may be on the front lines…

Father William Corby, CSC (October 2, 1833 – December 28, 1897) was an American priest of the Congregation of Holy Cross, and a Union Army chaplain in the American Civil War attached to the Irish Brigade. He served twice as president of the University of Notre Dame.
