Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionRakkasanKhowst Province, Afghanistan – Some people search their entire life for signs telling them what to do. For Erika Espeseth, it was a billboard for military chaplaincy that pointed her in the direction she had been searching for.

She finally knew what she wanted in life: a life of ministry and service.

In January 2010, she would agree to enlist as a chaplain’s assistant half-way through her senior year of high school, something she never thought possible.

Spc. Erika Espeseth, a Madison, WI, native, is a chaplain’s assistant with the 3rd Special Troops Battalion, 3rd Brigade Combat Team “Rakkasans,” 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), and serves her country by providing ministry support as a member of a religious support team at Forward Operating Base Salerno, Afghanistan. Espeseth carries her patriotism pridefully while combining it with her passion for God. (U.S. Army Photo by Sgt. 1st Class Abram Pinnington, TF 3/101 PAO)
