Pro Deo Et Patria- An Army Chaplain

I am a chaplain in the US Army, serving in Iraq. I'm keeping a blog to share my thoughts and experiences while deployed. They are my thoughts and they don't necessarily reflect the opinions of the US Army! :)

A view from the air

Here are few pictures taken from the air as I flew to another base yesterday. The top picture is a view as the sun is beginning to set. The bottom one is a grove of Date Palm Trees, taken as the helicopter is taken a sharp turn and I am looking pretty much straight down.

I have to admit that flying in a helicopter is one of my favorite things to do. They really are amazing machines, and it offers an incredible view of the area, hoping from place to place.

Hey Chris!

Right now it is after 2am Baghdad time and you are in a different year than me; weird :)
This time next year you will hopefully be with us, your family.
We miss you and as always, you are in our thoughts and prayers.

hello sir,
i am the wife of a new army chaplain who is set to deploy to ramadi at the beginning of the year. as i read about ramadi i cannot help but wonder about his safety. can you give me an idea of some situations he might be in as a chaplain? i know he/we are exactly where we should be and that anything that happens will be god's goodness for us. however, as a wife and mother fear is often present in my heart. i don't want to be spared the details, i would like to know how to pray for him and his unit.
in christ
