Father Martin Jenco was an ordained Roman Catholic priest in the order called "The Servants of Mary" (O.S.M.). He was an American hostage held in Beirut with others, including Terry Anderson, Rev. Ben Weir, and Thomas Sutherland. Father Jenco's 564 days in captivity, which started in 1985, are told in his book "Bound to Forgive" (Ave Maria Press, c1995). His release from captivity, along with many of his fellow hostages, was allegedly orchestrated by the Iran/Contra, arms-for-hostages affair.
