30 years of ministering to America's finest individuals. Often brutal hours and conditions, real life scenarios and experiences. Trained hard, worked hard, life and death situations. Two combat tours to Iraq. Ministered to thousands of soldiers, conducted religious services in varied locations with diverse crowds, and trying circumstances. Traveled the world, lived overseas and experienced other cultures for 10 years. Gained appreciation, compassion, and understanding for those different from what I was familiar with. Learned the benefits of teamwork, determination, and togetherness. Lived the Army Values; Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage. Was supervised, supervised, and worked with and alongside diverse races, ethnic groups, religions, genders, persuasions, ages, and nationalities, see all as brothers and sisters in arms and people I was proud to serve with. The hardest part of the job was dealing with injury, death and loss, particularly death notifications and suicides.The most enjoyable part of he job was simply being there.
