"Welcome back to the national defense. It's Randy Miller and Jerry Newberry. And hey, this is fascinating stuff that we're learning at the American Red Cross we're getting educated really educated and the man to do it. Dr J boy is with us, and he is a chaplain historian. That's correct. Store for the United States. Army chaplain corps. Okay. All right. So you're also a chaplain. No, I'm not not a chaplain infantry officer. Sometimes I think I'm in over my over my head. How how did you land? Yeah. It is a department of defense a civilian historian position. Oh. It was a historian that when I was a captain. It was getting very frustrated. I'd had it somebody kept throwing me under the bus because they were an idiot. And I was just done. I mentioned that to a traveling because I wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. And so to actually I did an and they moved me from a different team in short. It was a chaplain that kept me in the army. So so aside from the fact that I had a house in the area where the job was offered. Plus that fact that Chaplin it kept me in the army. It kinda Comey made me want to interesting their historian so talk about your uniform. Okay. Okay. Wearing the uniform of United States army in the first World War. And I mentioned to you. Sometimes I get asked about it. And I mentioned that that was issued to me when I first joined and now I'm getting older. Actually think that's true. So I'm going to stop saying. People go you can still fit into that. I'm in a short sleeve shirt. Yeah. And I'm pretty sure you're warming. Nothing says it quite like. But, but if you're if you're deployed to Europe, and especially around this wealth, really even starting in September, October September wars, actually, what you want and and they actually made a million for the first million. And then they started they actually issued their second million when they remain factoring. They started on their on their third million troops deployed overseas when the armistice occurred. So have you ever been to the World War? One museum in Kansas City. I have been to the shrine. Yeah. And that is absolutely the most amazing place World War in history. Isn't it that that you could ever imagine while I guess people? Let me make podcast on the history of the chaplain's corps rebelled ads. I just finished an an amazing book. It's called the escape artists. Yeah. You read it. Group of World War One for the most part pilots were taken prisoner and talked about other different backgrounds and how these guys came up with ALI'S. Escaped from the POW camps. And they later went on some of the survivors to teach World War. Two pilots. About what they should do if they get captured what to expect and things it's highly recommend. It's good book. I can get the time. I mean, you do have some of those stories aren't as good for chaplains. But you do have some amazing chaplains in Delhi. Oh, yeah. We and we need to talk about chaplains. I mean, there's in military. Hey, you got a problem. Get your card punch there you go tally chaplain. But chaplains. Have been in it. They've lost their lives. They faced danger. Offer the higher. Good. No. There were eleven chaplains upper killed in the first war. My research revealed that eight of them were killed in action in the Musar gone offensive the last large offensive of World War One the forty seven day operation that actually helped end World War One launch twenty six September ending eleven November. And what happened? There was first off. We still remains the largest battle with the highest amount of casualties of any battled. The United States army has ever has. Well, you silently sent to soldiers. They I mean open fields in machine against Shane guns. That was barbed wire six feet high and maybe six hundred yards wide, interlocking fires artillery and machine guns are the killer of the war and twenty six thousand Americans are killed in ninety six thousand are wounded and the end result is that it's an infallible amount. But what chaplains ended up doing in the first World War and Musar gone is they respond to the need. And so the reason eight we're killed in action. Was they went to try to retrieve evacuate. A lot of the soldiers that were that were sitting at sitting laying wounded on the front lines from anywhere from six to eight hours. One of the ones that stands out to me is is a chaplain Lieutenant John Baptist. Devolves devolves carried stretchers for such a long time that his hands gave out. He wrapped signal wire to rest onto the stretcher carrying handles man to continue carrying in another incident. He tried to go rescue a wounded man that was on the wire he was found unconscious. The next day wounded the man lying line beside him. He suffered three chemical attacks in the course of the war to conclude the story he was in a hospital. Dine in nineteen twenty his friends went to congress saying the man deserves a distinguished service cross. So the congress passes that telephone call is made. He is informed by nurse that he is going to get a DSE of newspapers that I read said he burst into tears any passes away. Thirty minutes later, Clarence Edward, the twenty sixth infantry division commander. Hadn't that have been with him will actually pin the DNC on him at his funeral home. So here's a man a chaplain that just basically gave everything he could for for his flock for his soldiers. That's the kind of things that Chapman's did in the first war. And that's why in my mind, they they stand out especially in them use are gone battle where they respond to a need. And they they suffer in a sense proportionately to to what. Yeah. The magnitude of. Death and destruction World War One is I've I've read a lot of books about it. And I've been through the museum, but it so difficult to capture a hand the scope of something those numbers. Oh, yeah. Absolutely. A staggering number United States is very unprepared for this war. If you look at the regular army in before April six when we declare where nineteen seventeen regular armies about two hundred thirteen thousand and the Germans rate that army is somewhere between Portugal, and Belgium. Yeah. Right. So in an eighteen month period, we go from that small number to an army of almost four million. I don't know in American military history even World War Two where you do such a rapid mobilization and build up of troops that our problem is the training. It's it's not very good, doctrine Lee or otherwise. And so we're throwing in the end, we're throwing virtually untrained soldiers, in some cases, at German fortifications just praying that we can out because we have our heavier divisions praying that our numbers will will actually carry the day. And by and large. They do we seldom doesn't American division. Get knocked back. We do proceed forward. Some would argue clumsily perhaps greater cost. But but we are a key component in ending the war. Eventually the Germans that. That's Dr Boyd I wanted to find out about vision training. So did the did all of the the training was the same for the chaplains or how how is that handled? What's really interesting because the chaplains have no no real over of military, doctrine our schools until a chaplain Albert prudent in February of nineteen eighteen keep in mind almost two thirds of the war, but on by almost but recommends a chaplain school, and so he could idea. Yes. We all think so. Especially when you have a minister volunteers, and every chaplain volunteer in the first war, just like all the wars. We'd actually fought in. It's one thing to be a minister, and we believe you come fully trained in the first war, but you're not trained necessarily for survival in the battle out of putting on a gas mask. For example, what a uniform is how how to salute basic survival skills. And so in in one March, we have the first ever chaplain school at fort Monroe. And then after that school we trained chaplains at camp Zachary Taylor outside of Louisville Kentucky, that's kind of interesting because initially there just officers like anybody else. So they actually have to learn to shoot which is kinda crazy, but they never use a weapon. Right. Well, I can talk to you about a few that actually here in a minute. But, but but the bottom line is that they also, you know, so they have to take horseback riding in as a comrade historian, John Branchville mentioned once in a in a talk gave if the if that Chaplin got booked off that horse. He probably was the army chaplains first airborne chaplain. Who that is? I can't I can't dispute a historian who came before me, right? He's absolutely. On that particular moment. But but indeed in that four to five week course chaplains begin to trickle over into Europe. We never have the full complement. Yeah. We end the war there with about probably twelve hundred. We probably are six to seven hundred chaplains short while we are. They are overworked keeping in mind that once the war ends. That's great. You know, little little Joe private. He's now free to eat sleep and get into trouble. Right. But the chaplains work is not done at the end of the war there. Still still try to keep the soldiers. Busy and keep them spiritually sound and provide for them materially and all the other things. And of course, I'm gonna get hit with the influenza epidemic. American Red Cross assist, but chaplains are working in that hospital side by side with Red Cross and other medical personnel. And and if I can recall the, quote, I took care of a patient. I I would attack his head. I would read him the bible and some of them I buried one chaplain would report. So so they were they were right there. And of course, some of them some of them are contracts on the same disease. I ran into some memo that was a chaplain on a on a troopship with African American soldiers, and they got the influenza on the ship. And his report was it was almost the equivalent of a death ship by the time it got. So so of all the killers to hit you after a very Brady war. This is absolutely about as sad as it can be but chaplains were there for morale. You know, they kept the troops entertain. And of course, chaplains can go where civilians dare not go in and we like to believe, and we do believe that a chaplain brings freedom of religion. Because a civilian on the battlefield is a really stupid place. They could they could be the Billy Graham of minister. Sure, but it's not a good place. Yeah. You don't have the train and it needs to be a a man unit or women now in uniform. Yeah. That that a trip can relate to get to the point where people are going into like basic training in get like three weeks of training. And that was it. The chip is at it could even be worse. What what could happen would be a group of soldiers would come in to say my beloved eighty first infantry division, which was training then at camp Jackson, South Carolina. And all of a sudden find a need for for more soldiers on a division that's going over. So they pull him out of training put them in this diverse. How in a way they go. Now, they get to France. And theoretically Pershing has set up a program to train them also in a training camp. But you take my hapless in sad, seventy ninth infantry division. Right, which has just gotten a France, maybe had three to four months training at most gets thrown into the center of the line and offensive. Of the Musar gone is supposed to take this almost impossible position called Mafa fon which stands for little. It's nicknamed little Gibraltar interlocking fires the whole nine yards. These poor boys die on the wire about thirty five hundred of them in two days. Oh my gosh. The senior chaplain Charles H Brent happens to no one of the major battalion commanders of the three thirteenth regiment at the seventy ninth. That is commanding major major Benjamin pepper pepper who is who is killed. He's a Philadelphia lawyer is his law partner. Harry Ingersoll a company commander is also killed the only time in his diary that he ever sketched. Anything is Bishop Brent the senior chaplain of the AFL sketch cross with with peppers name on it. And to the side. Berry Ingersoll is name. It was personal all chaplains that lost their soldiers. Lecturers father Francis. Duffy and the sixty ninth of New York, it was personal. So they they got to know these boys in the case of Francis. Duffy, right. He'd known some of them all his life, summa has soldiers 'cause they regard. One was his altar boy if you re Duffy's book, he lists almost every single single soldier that he lost that was a personal friend like family in his book. I mean, it it hurts to do that. It's personal chaplains bring the the the human the human parts and Duffy Duffy will say that his his his his last act of love. Is to is to bury his people honourably that's to bury them well as his last act of love, which which says a lot for both the chaplains Corbett again for the support that the that the American Red Cross brought to this this contentious time, Dr boy, do you know everything. Yes. Yes. I do. Honestly, just seems.
