Last night my husband and I attended a formal ball to celebrate the 237th Anniversary of the United States Chaplain Corps.
I love attending formal balls. It’s a great excuse to get all dressed up and have fun!
Last night’s ball was especially special because we were celebrating the Chaplain Corps while my husband is attending the Chaplain Advanced course.
I enjoyed hearing the history of the Chaplain Corps and was in doing so I was reminded of just how proud I am of my husband and the ministry he has.
Knowing that he is called to this…called to serve our American Soldiers and share God’s love for them has gotten me through the frustration, struggles, and demands of numerous separations, deployments, and moves. I hold on to that call…his call and our call as a family…whenever the days get hard.
Many people find this blog searching for more information about chaplains.
I also get lots of questions from family and friends about the chaplaincy.
Questions such as…
Exactly what does a chaplain do?
What role do they play in the military?
The mission of the Army Chaplain is really three fold.
It is to:
Nurture the living,
care for the wounded,
and honor the fallen.
I would like to share with you a video that we watched last night at our ball that best describes the call of the US Army Chaplain Corps.
I am honored to be a part of this great group serving our country by serving our country’s soldiers.
I am thankful for this call that God has placed upon my husband to nurture the living, care for the wounded, and honor the fallen.
