Museum Board of Visitors Continues to Expand

The National Vietnam War Museum is pleased to announce that Brigadier General James T. Spivey, Jr. has joined its Board of Visitors.

The Board of Visitors is a group that provides advice to the Board of Directors and consists of influential persons from various walks of life. Members include Texas State Senator Craig Estes, who represents Texas' Thirtieth Congressional District; Mr. James Webb, best-selling author, former Secretary of the Navy, and USMC Vietnam veteran; Mr. Magne Hagen, who recently retired as the long-time personal Secretary to the King of Norway; and General John T. Chain (USAF Ret.), former Commander in Chief, Strategic Air Command.

Chaplain Spivey was commissioned as an Artillery Second Lieutenant in June 1972, and served on active duty in the US Army until 1977. Following his active service, Chaplain Spivey attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and received his Master of Divinity degree in 1980. He remained in the US Army Reserve serving in various assignments in the United States and overseas.

In 1986, Chaplain Spivey transferred from the Field Artillery to the Chaplains Corps, and deployed to Saudi Arabia during Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm. He was selected as Assistant Chief of Chaplains in April 1997, and promoted to Brigadier General in April 1998. He served as Assistant Chief of Chaplains until April 2001. Chaplain Spivey retired from the US Army Reserve in April 2003 and currently serves as the Administrative Dean, Houston Campus, for Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Chaplain Spivey and his wife, the former Beverly F. Frederick, reside in Fort Worth, Texas.

The National Vietnam War Museum welcomes Chaplain Spivey to the Board of Visitors and is looking forward to a long and mutually supportive relationship.
