Chaplains mark grim milestone with salute to each of the fallen

As the news spread around the nation over Easter night that the number of U.S. dead in Iraq had reached 4,000, newspapers and broadcasts over the world marked the milestone with reports on the lives of the soldiers and their families.

Sharon Cohen of The Associated Press, covered the experiences of four chaplains:

Rev. David Sivret, rector at St. Anne's Episcopal Church in Calais, Maine, and chaplain in the Maine National Guard;

Captain Kevin Wainwright, U.S. Army, a Presbyterian minister and chaplain to the 3rd Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment;

Jesus Perez, a Messianic Jew, chaplain to the First Calvary Division at Fort Hood;

and Lt. Colonel Irvine Brye, Army Reserve, a Baptist minister and chaplain to the 3rd Medical Command at Camp Victory, Baghdad.
