Should Chaplains or Medical Officers wear Sabers?

Historically and with regard to the traditions of the Army, yes. The saber was a functional implement of warfare and badge of leadership before the US ever considered supporting the Geneva Convention. Since the saber is worn as a link to the traditions and history of the Army, it makes sense for any smartly turned-out officer to wear a saber for dress or ceremonial occasions. The current uniform regulations are silent on the wear of a saber by any officer. This leaves the decision up to the individual officer.

Marlow White's swords and sabers have ceremonial blades. As such, they are built to strict military regulations to be used in drills, ceremonies, and displays. These blades are of the highest quality but are not sharpened for use as a weapon.
