Update: Quest For Chaplain Hanley

By Tom Johnson

I wanted everyone to know that in my quest to find Chaplain Hanley of the 3rd Field Hospital, I was able to make contact with Chaplain Hanley’s widow who lives in Ohio.

We had a long and wonderful conversation on the telephone.

She said her husband, who became a major, continued on at the 3rd Field Hospital for the remainder of his tour.

He often flew to the Mekong Delta to visit other chaplains. It was there he contacted Agent Orange which took his life.

He is buried in Arlington Cemetery.

  • Tom – Thank you for your update about Chaplin Hanley. It warms my heart that you have finally been able to have closure to your *quest* for Chaplin Hanley. Yet, I’m saddened you were not able to visit with him before his passing.

    Blessing to you for all the wonderful memories you’ve given Saigon Kids through your photos you’ve been so kind to share with us.

    Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday season.

    Bob
