About a month ago as I was driving around post I had a thought, “Sr. Chaplains are retiring and they have careers that started before 9-11.” My military career started in 2002 and it is amazing how much the Army has changed over the span of just my career. Well, imagine what some of the Chaplains have seen? Chaplains who were on the frontlines of ministry during the early years of the Global War on Terror. Chaplains who were there as the Army was trying to figure out how to fight a counterinsurgency war. Chaplains who have stories to tell that will be lost to history unless someone captures them.
That’s where the idea for the Chaplain Stories podcast was born. It’s a podcast where I sit down with Chaplains and give them a medium to tell their stories. So I went and bought a simple and portable microphone that I can plug into my iPhone and set about creating the podcast.
You can find the podcast on Soundcloud or iTunes (search for Chaplain Stories) and I will also post updates here on my blog. If you like what you hear please subscribe and share!
