    Rod has great stories that personalize this time in history. We need more books like this.

    A friend recommended this book because my young brother served in Vietnam. He was drafted and returned with stories that matched some of Chaplain Spitler's stories. He was so grateful for the Chaplain's frequent visits because the guys could discuss ANYTHING with him. How reassuring to know our troops had the support of people like Chaplain Spitler, may God bless and keep him always!

    A Chaplain Volunteers stays with you. As you go about your day, you will find yourself contrasting the Captain who insisted his men be treated first with the officer who followed military protocol to the detriment of his subordinates. You'll think of the bomb-sniffing dog that was every soldier's friend and wonder what happened to the decorated hero who refused an order at the end of his tour. Rod Spitler's simple, spare writing relates humble heroism, tragic mistakes made with the best intentions and the humanity found in the midst of the war's inhumanity. When you finish this book, you will have a far better understanding of the reasons and rewards behind truly selfless service to our country. You also will have a new perspective of what really happened in the jungles of Vietnam, without propaganda or politically correct stretches of the truth. A Chaplain Volunteers is not a textbook. The reader needs some historical context to understand the implications of Rod Spitler's accounts....

    I found this a very factual account of the experience of a responsible person serving in the military to assist persons in need of a caring helper. Mr Spitler did an excellent job of telling his story.

    I highly recommend this book, as Rod really brings you to the core of what his role as a Chaplain consisted of while in Vietnam. I believe any one that served in Vietnam should read this book, or anyone in our armed services. I know that by reading Rod's book I can appreciate all that others have done for me and the freedom we have been given. A must read as truly Rod puts you right in the middle of what Vietnam was all about and what we can do to live our lives now.
