As someone who has worked in the U.S. military chaplain corps for many years, I realized that many chaplains didContinue reading “A Very Important Book”
As a man myself, and someone who served in the U.S. Army Chaplain Corps for 18 years, I can honestly say that I had no idea how difficult it was to serve as a woman in the military.
