Spiritual Support: Chaplain Chris Martin

Chaplains like Col. Chris Martin could regularly be seen on the flight line blessing the aircrews as they taxied out for takeoff. They also provided needed counseling between missions.

Chaplain Martin originally served in the U.S. Air Force as a transport pilot in the 1950s. After attending divinity school, he served as a USAF chaplain for 22 years, including a tour with the 355th TFW at Takhli Royal Thai Air Force Base in 1967.
