Dates don't work

how can it be the son of elderly holocaust survivors in the Korean War. couldn't be older than 8 years. Probably Vietnam.

The story is not unusual

The above story has a few problems - 1) the chaplain could not ride in a vehicle but could carry on Shabbat?

This story is not unusual. Every chaplain that I know (and I know a few) would do the same thing, given the chance and circumstance. Our morality and compassion is not from a set of rules and regulations, but from the Torah. Maybe you should get to know a few chaplains before you start telling stories.
