The position of army chaplain is as old, or older, than the country; and, it’s one of the most valued commissions in the military.

George Washington established the military chaplaincy on July 29, 1775, just two and half months after the Continental Congress established the Army. Washington said he was concerned about the ‘morale and morals’ of Soldiers. He believed the Army must provide paid religious leaders to support the Soldiers’ spiritual needs.

As your Chaplains we are here for you. We are available on UTAs at JFTB; No appointment necessary.

“The soldier’s heart, the soldier’s spirit, and the soldier’s soul are everything. Unless the
soldier’s soul sustains him, he cannot be relied on and will fail himself, his commander,
and his country in the end. It is not enough to fight. It is not enough to fight. It is the
spirit that wins the victory. Morale is a state of mind. It is steadfastness, courage, and
hope. It is confidence, zeal, and loyalty. It is elan, esprit de corps, and determination. It
is staying power, the spirit which endures in the end, and the will to win. With it all
things are possible, without it everything else, planning, preparation, and production
count for naught.”

General George C. Marshall

“Always Ready, Always There”
