FT Jackson

I've spent the last week at FT Jackson at the US Army Chaplain Center and School helping the cadre there train new Chaplains is basic military skills. It has been quite an experience. Last summer I took the course myself and it was interesting being on the other side of that training. Most of the new chaplains have had little or no military experience and many are long in the tooth. They are not used to road marching, wearing heavy equipment and the structure of the Army. One thing I have noticed is that they all have a deep desire to serve their country and a deep desire to serve God. There are all shapes and sizes there. Some are Catholic priests in their 50's and some are still in seminary. I've put some pictures here so you'll have an idea of the stuff they get to do. Hope you enjoy them.
