This book is a walk into the inner lives of our military personnel where fear, pain, and anxiety are intermingled with intense love and a sobering dedication to the protection of our nation. Issues like these are personal, at times full of hurt turning a normal life into a frightening, sleep deprived existence. At other times life is full of love and family and satisfaction for successfully completing seeming impossible tasks. This is an area of combat where the chaplain is most involved. He doesn't carry a rifle or sidearm. His weapon is his relationship with God and a commitment to bring God into the resolution process. The chaplain spends his life living with our military personnel, sharing their hardships, fears, and joys and being a part of military families, those who ultimately complete their personal lives. To serve is an honor. To serve as a chaplain is a privilege allowing us to encounter life lived to its fullness.
