Ministering to Soldiers, and Facing Their Struggles
Mr. Bowlus, 40, has served more than his share of time under fire, having returned to active duty in 2002. He has made eight tours of duty, rising to the rank of major. He has done it, however, in his second Army incarnation, as a chaplain.

In those years, he has held syringes and gauze for a medic while praying the 23rd Psalm with a soldier shot during a raid in Mosul, Iraq. He has administered first aid and God’s word to the fighting men raked by rocket-propelled grenades when the Taliban ambushed their convoy. He has soothed grieving parents and overseen the loading of coffins for the long flight home.

All of it has imbued him with purpose, and all of it has tested his endurance, both psychologically and theologically. Major Bowlus is part of a cohort of military chaplains who have gone through the same kind of multiple deployments as American soldiers in nearly a decade of war in Afghanistan ...

Yes, an interesting article, and Major Bowlus, not coming from a mainline denomination, or the Catholic Church is much better equipped to do some good.

I would hope these chaplains are better than the ones during the Vietnam era, at least those that remained stateside. These were almost entirely interested in an Army career and cared little about Christianity (I am talking about the Army because that's what I'm familiar with) I will say many of the Protestant chaplains in Vietnam were Christian and were interested in the Gospel.

kudos to SA for posting this!

it is easy for the public to think of these things as sterile, not hearing the civilian counts, and not knowing the struggles of those in uniform.
