Chaplain ( Colonel ) Paul L. Vicalvi, U.S. Army(ret.), received the Centurion of the Year Award at the Chaplains Commission Centurion Banquet, held January 14 in Alexandria, Virginia.  This award recognizes exceptional commitment to the ministry of Evangelical military chaplains.

"I feel very honored to have been considered for this award,” said Colonel Vicalvi.   “It has been given to many high ranking officers and members of Congress, and to receive this award was humbling.  It was an honor to serve as a chaplain and serve chaplains in their important ministry to our nation's military service members."

Chaplain Vicalvi entered active duty in the United States Army in 1977.  His duty positions included battalion chaplain of the 1/504th battalion and 82nd Airborne Division and Commandant of the United States Army Chaplain Center and School.

Chaplain Vicalvi obtained a master’s degree from Houghton College, a Master of Divinity from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, a Master of Theology from Princeton Theological Seminary and a master’s degree in National Strategic Studies from the National Defense University.  He is also a graduate of the National War College.

Past recipients of this award include: Chaplain for the United States Senate Rear Admiral Barry Black, United States Navy,(ret.), Commander of the United States Air Force Doctrine Center Major General Bentley Rayburn, United States Air Force, and former Commanding General of the U.S. Special Forces Central Command Lieutenant General William G. Boykin, United States Army,(ret.).
