Website Review: Mission Capodanno

A review based on:


Mission Capodanno is a cyber base for all Catholic families that have a loved one serving in the United States Armed Forces. The site's goal is to help with both the practical and the spiritual, including locating sacramental records from previous duty stations or after retirement, providing free Catholic Care Packages to individuals, free Catholic materials to US military chaplains, offering a Holy Hour for Military, and answering common- and not so common- questions in the H.I.T.S. section, an acronym for Hard Issues To Swallow. As Petitioners for the Cause of Fr. Vincent R. Capodanno, LT, CHC, USNR, CatholicMil developed a sister site specifically devoted to the Cause:

This site does justice to those Catholics serving in the Armed Forces. It is extremely well done and covers the issues and concerns of those in the military in a clear and aesthetically pleasing way.
