My cousin is a Senior in a local Christian college and I was proud to hear that he is seriously considering joining the Army as a Chaplin after graduation. He is a super kid and real go-getter. I know that he would do a great job with the guys.

What can you all tell me about the program and Army Chaplins? I'd love to be able to help him with some insight.

If he is serious, IM me and I will give you our chaplains email.


The Army is VERY short on chaplains,

While flipping thru the book on MOH winners I recently bought it's amazing the # of chaplains who've been awarded the MOH.

You just have to find out the requirements for the religion who will sponsor him as a chaplain. Different religions and even denominations have different requirements.
